Desktop Automation

Automate rule-based business and IT processes

Connecting the dots between
processes and applications

If you just copy a few fields from an application and paste them into another application, import sales data from an Excel spreadsheet and fill out an online form, it is already time-consuming, tedious, and error-prone. It is time to automate this process. The question is not if rule-based tasks should be automated, but what does it take to automate them?
An Excel macro is a good start, but how can you fill data into another application? Even a simple macro requires programming knowledge, and you do not want to involve your IT department in simple tasks. Many businesses and IT processes are affected by repetitive, rule-based tasks that involve manipulation of the software of various applications.

Better productivity with
integrated recorder

The recorder is the best example of how productive you can be with UiPath. The regular way to create an automation is to configure one action at a time. This can be time-consuming and a novice might not always evaluate which action models the real action on the screen. Using UiPath, during recording, your actions on the screen are observed and translated into logical steps in a workflow. For example, you can record a whole sequence such as logging into, doing a search and generating a report in two minutes. All of this, in just one recording session. UiPath lets you record most of the actions that are possible on presentation layers, including clicks on buttons and links, typing into editable controls, selecting a drop-down menu. It also enables more advanced actions such as waiting until an image appears on the screen or extracting structured data from a web page.
