We used to have certain lists of vendors who billed every month. They had a specific format to their invoices. Using bots to read through those invoices, we were able to pick up relevant data and enter it into the finance systems.
It was implemented for is filling out timesheets from the managers. There are certain managers who have to allocate hours to multiple employees, around 40 to 45 employees. Each month, they decided how much time that they will allocate to each of resource. Using a robot, they can automatically fill in the timesheet on Zoho, which is the timesheet system that the company uses.View full review »

We have two very separate systems which need to talk to each other. It sounds very simple, but we have a job that takes a file from one system and loads it into another. But it has to do that close to 1500 times. It's a job that used to be done manually, by 150 people in 150 different markets. Now, it's something that's done during the middle of the night, and when they come in it's all completed. So it was a very simple task, but there was a lot of volume. It has saved everybody a lot of time and it has saved a huge amount of manpower.View full review »

We have done a little bit of everything: Oracle, Salesforce.com, using Citrix, we did an order to cash, and in the IQ Bot world, we seem to be doing a lot of AR and invoice-to-pay (those are the two that we see the most). We will be moving into medical billing next. Since we have done some really good prototypes with medical records, I think we are ready to go there next.View full review »

What we have automated is taking on the automating process and making sure the automation process is touching all the components in a sequential fashion, then somebody is offboarding it. How do you make sure all the systems access either taking out or restricting it in a way that is one automation? We can only do that with Automation Anywhere because it has helped enable us to do that faster.
There are a couple of other examples, e.g., loan processing system, where there are multiple documents coming in multiple formats. Structure on structure, and often, there are a lot of back office operations where this is happens and you are actually consuming the data, feeding it to your loan processing systems, or any other systems that you use.
What we have used with Automation Anywhere is take those desperate applications which are coming in with the various forms of data with the intent that they are built-in with IQ Bot of Automation Anywhere, then combine them with the tasks that MetaBots from Automation Anywhere provides, and we were able to automate the process. So, how can we cut shorter on the areas of arrangement, decision-making, and error reduction? We were able to do that in one of the loan processing system applications.View full review »
We have automated a different variety of processes, anything from inbound communications, from clients to our customer. Those inbound communications have to be processed and digested, then acted upon, some of which can be straight-through process automated, which is a fantastic time savings for them. The ones that can't be, can be routed to the right folks in a very quick manner, rather than being manually read and inspected, then categorized and passed on.
We have also addressed financial processes around invoice reconciliation or accounts payable. There are processed around sales. If you think about how people use Salesforce and spreadsheets and other systems around Salesforce. There is a lot of copying and pasting of data in and out of Salesforce, then into those other systems. We can make all that go away, so their sales reps can focus on selling. So, there are a lot of great use cases like that.View full review »

It can automate any processes where the process is well established, standard, or stable, and there are not many changes in the process. For example, a simple task, such as logging into a website, launching a website and doing systematic sketch on the website, can easily be captured to Automation Anywhere. In some cases, you are doing processes which require you to log into a website and connect information or fill in information. This is pretty much doable. I see lot of applications, especially in finance and accounting domain.
The good thing about Automation Anywhere is that any process, which is repetitive, rule-based, and only requires you to do the coding onscreen can be automated. Therefore, Automation Anywhere makes for a good use case. Wherever the process is rule-based and deterministic, with no decisions to be made, you can use it.
You might have a lot of steps where you need to either extract data, repeat data, or collect data. All of those processes can be automated through RPA, and especially Automation Anywhere. You can use even automation from the server side, not just websites. The only constraint is that the process should not require human intervention and decision making.View full review »
I have worked with the Windows, Excel, and web applications along with some sort of the SAP automation and how to automate that SAP data.View full review »
For the client with 70,000 to 80,000, we created an SQL database to maintain all their records using bots. E.g., if a bot failed, then another bot would retry using the same information. In the "You Ready" phase, this process was 95 to 98 percent successful. When we finally moved it to production, we had between 99 to 100 percent accuracy. This took us around one and a half months to set up. Two development levels were involved along with an architect who was guiding us.
With another client, we used to receive around a million files. Per day, we would have to process around 70,000 to 80,000 records, uploading data where the volume was huge. We deployed the process in multiple bots, using about 20 bots to get the process done. For this client, every second used mattered. We had to code the bot in such a way that we could save every second for them. We had to figure out how much time the bot took and the cost savings for any particular data. We used the workload feature of Automation Anywhere get it done.View full review »
In my current organization, we are seeing great results, especially with the financial and civil processes.View full review »
For accounting and finance statistic, we have reconciliation specific processes, such as rates uploads into systems. The majority of our development is on SAP and Excel. We are focusing on the financial services area, so our use cases are more related to finance and accounting.View full review »
For the finance team, they have custom themes for classification of engineering parts. This was one of our largest scaled automation projects. The process was that an engineer would do: A wheel comes in, and they want to classify it. They need to do the research to classify it. They pull up the data from different tools. E.g., they pull up a drawing with specifications of it. A bot will now do this research instead.View full review »
We use unattended bots for all the financial reporting. We have also done some use cases in master data management (MDM).View full review »
A process that I automated was taking data from one of website and matching/reconciling it with bank statements. I used Automation Anywhere to place the data from our website and compare that with the bank statement. Most of the bank statements were in PDF format. I extradited the data from the PDF format and copied that to an SCS Suite file. From there, I started comparing the values and reconciling them.View full review »
We serve different clients of ours helping them streamline or ease out with their day-to-day activities. There is a team who identifies which activities can be automated end-to-end. They prepare a proposal sheet, which comes to us, and we do the feasibility of it: How much of that activity can be automated. Then, we proceed from there.View full review »
We do a lot of data analytics and strategy consulting work. The work that we have automated so far is our legacy suite of applications, doing all the reporting, data extraction from different web sources, and collating the information, then publishing to websites.View full review »
We picking processes that are more manual and consume more time. We pick a case where it consumes more time when an individual does it. When an automation platform with a bot does it, less time is needed and it is more efficient. This way we have reduced manpower on these manual tasks.View full review »

Our use case is spread across multiple areas: We are using it in finance: automating the month-end process. There are a lot of review processes that happen every week. We are in the middle of that. We have a product lifecycle management process that when we close the books on a product, information needs to go into multiple systems. We have another bot in system for this.View full review »
We have automated the complete process of code review. The bot is solving the problem of ensuring the compliance of reviewing code. People used to generally skip the code review process, because it was exhaustive. Bots can review the complete standards of the code, whatever is there, ensuring the compliance and eventually saving time.View full review »
We had around more than 300 tickets every month coming in for just this use case. We went live last month and the tickets went down to around 80 as of August 20th. While it might touch around 100, over a period of around six months it will become zero because we have not removed all the legacy data. We are just doing it from the go date of when we went live. The target is that it will be zero after three months. So, it's working well.
I have one application that does not publish any APIs. However, there is one activity where every employee needs to be registered in that particular application. Now, we use Automation Anywhere for this. So, we get the data from the source data using the front-end of that application through the Automation Anywhere script. Then, we do registration of the employees into that application. Previously, this was being done by people on our service desk. Now, we are using Automation Anywhere to do this activity. This has saved a lot of time.View full review »

I have taken one of the finance processes, which is completely Excel driven, and consolidated more than 20 Excel files of large volumes of data by drawing pivot tables and all sorts of yield curves on the Excel files. I converted this structured, formulaic process to the bot. There are features within the Automation Anywhere which let you do types of keystrokes, formatting in Excel sheets, etc. The process used to take more than 30 hours for the user to complete on a quarterly basis. With the development of this bot, the bot can run the entire process within an hour and a half. It saves about more than 20 hours of time for the user. This is just one example. There are other bots saving hundreds of productivity hours per quarter.View full review »
We have hundreds of cases a day. There were around two to three employees who were just moving a case from one state to another. This was a repetitive, tedious job, which was frustrating for the employees. It helps to have the bot doing this work now. We have immediately seen effects, so this is a good use for it.View full review »

For a finance process, we are able to initially do it at segment level. We handle one section, then automate that section. We will then move onto the payroll side and automate that part of it. At a higher level, we are able to merge both processes. Now, we are able to do end-to-end automation: From creating a quotation. To creating a purchase order. To doing a payment to the vendor. To payment to our employees. We are able to visualize the areas of automation as well as do the automation in a fast manner. That's one of the immediate contributions that we are having.View full review »

There is one user registration process in one application where there is no API which has been published by that framework. This is a very proprietary in one application by a third-party. So, there was a help desk, and whenever a call went to the help desk, they had a front-end where they created these user registrations. Now, this is completely automated for all employees who are onboarded. We receive the data, it is put it into Excel, and from Excel, it will update it into the particular tool where the registration happens.
On the service desk, they are using ServiceNow with a VPN connection. Now, they are logging using Automation Anywhere as a bot, which logs into a ServiceNow. It will then take that VPN request and create it on the server.View full review »
