RPA is a process in which a software bot uses a combination of automation, computer vision, and machine learning to automate repetitive large-scale tasks that are rule-based and triggered. The software is intended to execute repetitive tasks across applications and systems. The software learns a workflow with multiple steps and applications.
In other words, Robotic Process Automation is nothing more than instructing a machine to perform routine, repetitive manual tasks. If there is a logical step to completing the task, the bot will be able to reproduce it.
Simply put, the role of RPA is to automate repetitive tasks that were previously performed by humans.
