Why robotic process automation?

Focus on more important tasks by training robotic process automation (RPA) software bots to perform the tedious, repetitive, manual ones.

Save time, add scalability with Power Automate RPA

Ease of use

Create automated workflows with step-by-step guidance and an intuitive, no-code interface anyone can use, regardless of their technical expertise.

Rapid implementation

Roll out scalable changes quickly while meeting all IT security requirements—since Power Automate has Microsoft security technology built in.

Unlimited possibilities

Integrate with other Microsoft products, link new and legacy systems while also taking advantage of partner connectors—or create your own.

Attended or unattended RPA, it’s your choice

Attended RPA

Unattended RPA

Attended RPA

Focus on more high-value work by automating boring, repetitive tasks like front-office activities. With attended RPA, humans initiate tasks or respond to specific prompts—like providing a yes/no response.

Unattended RPA

Let bots handle the tedious, menial work for you by recording and playing back actions—without the need for anyone to be at their computer. With unattended RPA everything is fully automated, so you’re able to schedule and trigger events which accelerates end-to-end automation of high-volume tasks.
