What is RPA?

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is a technology for automating high volume, rules-based, mundane tasks performed by people, or for connecting systems that don’t have modern APIs. RPA software robots work with systems and data exactly like people do, but with higher accuracy and much faster. Plus, bots can work 24x7x365, boosting productivity, freeing employees to work on high value activities, breaking down data silos, and driving more value from legacy systems.


Reduce the number of employees required to accomplish a task.


Bots work continuously, reducing the time it takes to accomplish tasks.


RPA, when implemented in stable and well defined processes, is more accurate than people, raising the quality of work.

Cost Savings

RPA can lower operating costs and extend system usage in the absence of APIs, stretching ROI.


RPA helps remove mundane tasks so employees can focus on driving real impact throughout the organization.


“Appian RPA is our first choice for automating critical or complex processes.”
