“I use Automation Anywhere for multiple reasons. First and foremost, saving time. I have tasks created for our operations, administration, and sales departments, and have also created tasks for my own personal hobbies. The program is extremely easy to use, but yet very powerful.

  • Control security by assigning rights, privileges and passwords by user.
  • You can monitor activity by getting details on recent activity by user.
  • Manage shared tasks in the central repository.
  • Automate a task on one machine and rely on AA’s SMART Automation Technology® to seamlessly replay it on other machines
  • Maintain a central repository of automated tasks to share between users, thereby reducing set up time and replicating efforts.
  • Schedule auto backup and recover lost files from central repository
  • Assign individual user privileges and rights to maintain security. Use the client manager to allow certain users all rights, others only download rights and so forth, to match organizational structural requirements.
  • Upload automated tasks and share with other users.
  • Download automated tasks from other users to run seamlessly on your machine.
  • Download automated tasks and edit to customize.
  • One of the most powerful features: Actions are recorded using windows objects and just not their positions on a screen. For example: users can record a task to click a 'reply' button in an email program. Independent of its subsequent position in the application, this button will be clicked when replaying the task.
  • This object-based capture and replay also allows automated tasks to run in the background, allowing users to continue using a machine even while a task is being replayed.

client Visualize small

  • You can view images at the time of recording the task in the Task Editor View
  • Visualize (Image View) allows you to see all the images of the tasks in a storyboard style and helps to easily understand the scripts/tasks.
  • Snap Point allows on-demand capture while creating task
  • Visualize Technology 'Image Recognition' gives Automation Anywhere power to "See the screen". Compare static or dynamic images as task runs and perform actions based on it like a human being would do.

client workflow small

  • Workflow Designer is a tool to create high level business and IT processes and manage it. Workflow shows an intuitive graphical representation of conditional logic, task initiation, etc. Automation Anywhere Workflow Designer
  • Web service command implements SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) over the internet so that multiple clients can consume web services. This command establishes complete interpolarity between clients/applications with the Web, supporting XML-based open standards, such as WSDL(Web Services Description Language) , SOAP(Simple Object Access Protocol) and UDDI(Universal Description Discovery and Integration).
    • Use an existing URI or create a customized WSDL URI, providing secure authentication details, if any.
    • Consume reusable application components like currency conversion, weather reports, or even language translation as services.
    • Connect to existing software of different applications and different platforms irrespective of any underlying infrastructure requirements.
  • Integrate with any application to automate any task: Excel, legacy or Windows applications, Unix Shell, Telnet, Java application, Java applet, DOS command prompts, browsers, email automation and terminal emulation.
  • Convert tasks to EXE for quick and convenient deployment on remote machines.
  • EXEs have intelligent Automation Anywhere agent inside it so even on a remote computer they are still powered by SMART Automation Technology®. It makes automatic adjustments while replaying the EXE to run tasks seamlessly across computers.
  • EXEs provide unprecedented security in automation. All EXEs have task encrypted with strong encryption to protect task content. In addition you can also password protect the task.
