Types of RPA tools#
While there are so many terms that many tools use to project the functionality they provide, the types of RPA tools comes down to these simple functionalities and capabilities of these RPA tools list. It is important to remember that not all automation use-cases need a software tool like UiPath or Automation Anywhere. Some tasks can be easily and efficiently automated using various in-built tools that are available:
|Type of automation tools||Description|
|Programmable Automation Bots||Bots that can be programmed to perform certain complex business processes. Programmable via tools like Automation Anywhere, UiPath, and other tools.|
|Excel automation with Macros||Automation solution that is available within Microsoft Excel. Majorly used to automate or manipulate data within Excel.|
|Cognitive Automation Bots||Bots that comes with cognitive capabilities like computer vision, image recognition and such. These cognitive RPA bots can also make decisions on their own based on the input or output data from other activities.|
|UI Automation Bots||Bots that exactly mimic the activities that a human performs via the user interface of a platform. For example, sending money via a banking portal. They usually mimic the mouse movements and keystrokes of the humans.|
But this is not all, you should also know about two major types of bots that are defined based on the autonomy of their operation.
Two types of RPA bots#
|Type of bot||Use-case|
|Attended bot||Used when a human intervention is needed for the bot to perform something. Usually, the bot is run by a human. Used in important scenarios like payroll processing.|
|Unattended bot||Used when no human intervention is needed for the bot to run. Example, generating reports.|
