What is our primary use case?

  • Invoice processing
  • Claims processing
  • Vendor onboarding
  • Product fitment analysis
  • Database monitoring
  • Interaction with FTP and analyzing XML files
  • Underwriter quote submissions
  • Automating reconciliation of reports.

How has it helped my organization?

Ease of implementation.

Extensible framework assists in plugging in required components from existing scripts, and in implementing intelligent automation utilizing the best in class machine learning algorithms.

The framework provided has good recovery mechanism and exception handling capabilities built in. It can be customized based on the requirements and provides an easier start for implementation and to showcase in a presentable manner.

What is most valuable?

  • PDF automation: It performs well in reading native PDF documents.
  • Email automation: It integrates well with IMAP, SMTP, and POP3 apart from supporting Outlook and Exchange which are used extensively in large corporations.
  • Web automation: The use of UiExplorer in extracting the properties of web elements and easy modification to improve the re-usability of workflows.

  • Mobile app support to monitor bot health and status of the workflows.

What needs improvement?

  • The core product is yet to include machine learning capabilities. 
  • Focus on solving domain-specific high volume use cases to target the major pain points in each vertical.
  • Simplify the knowledge requirements on .NET Framework for implementing complex automations.
  • Including additional visualizations on the reporting side would help.
