At Automation Anywhere, we understand the stress and worries individuals are facing as a result of the pandemic. When the pandemic hit, all of our employees wondered about the same things as most people: When will I be able to embrace my loved ones? When will I be able to go back to the office? Will I be able to get the necessities I need from the grocery store?
To support our employees and the community, we had to think beyond work-related productivity Robotic Process Automation (RPA) bots and create automation solutions that could reduce stress levels associated with some of the new daily activities. This inspired us to develop a series of personal productivity bots that we are offering free of charge to users on our free, web-based platform Community Edition.
The free bot pack focuses on some of the most common daily tasks and includes the following bots:
Essential Shopping Assistant Bot
The low stock of essential items like hand sanitizer, cleaning supplies, and toilet paper can stress out the best of us. Of course, these items won’t be so scarce forever but pandemic or not, we have all experienced the struggle to obtain something that was in high demand. And very few can afford to spend most of their day going from one store to the other trying to get these everyday items. This bot can assist you by searching stores in your area to see what is in stock, limiting the number of trips you need to make and ensuring you can get what you need.
Excel Data Lookup Bot
In order to stay productive during times like these, it’s important to optimize every minute. Spending time sifting through lines and lines of data can be extremely time-consuming as well as mentally exhausting. Having access to the right data in a timely manner can make all the difference. For example, individuals who run local community groups need to keep a list of important member information such as contact info, emergency contact information, etc. This bot will help you quickly search through the data with accuracy, giving you the information you need when you need it.
COVID-19 Local Advisories Bot
With COVID-19 leaving everyone in a state of uncertainty and dominating the headlines, nobody knows what to expect. Now, it’s more important than ever to stay up to date with the latest news and advisories at the local and national level. This bot makes staying on top of everything you need to know simple by collecting relevant policy information in your local areas, as well as providing you with the national and global statistics and trends of COVID-19.
The bots available in the free bot pack can help you with tasks related to personal productivity as well as with business continuity, adapting to working from home, and much more.
