New App from Automation Anywhere Leverages Social Collaboration to Uncover High Value Automation Projects

Oct 17, 2013

Automation Anywhere (, a pioneer of automation software, today announced the availability of Automation Anywhere Cumulus. The socially-driven application helps businesses identify and prioritize task automation by tapping into the collective wisdom of their user community. Designed to utilize social collaboration to quickly and easily determine ROI-producing automation tasks, Cumulus is first launching through the Yammer App Directory, where it will be a featured application for the leading enterprise social network.

Automation Anywhere Cumulus helps businesses rapidly determine the value of automating a process to improve overall operational efficiency. Using Cumulus, anyone in an organization can suggest a task to be automated, vote on tasks that seem most valuable, contribute suggestions to existing initiatives, and track active automation projects. What sets the app apart are its built in tools that point specifically to value achieved through task automation, calculating hours and dollars that could be saved by automating each suggested manual process.

Automation Anywhere Cumulus will first be available as a featured application through the Yammer App Directory. Companies already using Yammer can simply add Cumulus to their deployment, and immediately begin internally sharing and prioritizing new automation projects.

"Enterprise social is the new operating system for organizations, and has the power to deliver real, measurable ROI," said Mihir Shukla, founder and CEO of Automation Anywhere. "Cumulus provides a way for entire organizations to tap in to the social revolution and contribute ideas for automating tasks while keeping the value of doing so at the forefront. We know that Yammer, with its large user base and commitment to making social enterprise collaboration work, is the perfect place for Cumulus to be first available."

Specific features and benefits of Automation Anywhere Cumulus include:

  • Live ROI: Use project level dashboards and self-defined rationale to give clear visibility into your company's potential ROI and ROI already achieved at any given time. Built-in calculators show potential days and dollars saved by automating a task, allowing companies to focus on high priority projects.
