WinAutomation was launched way back in 2005 (before the recent hype) and hence can be considered a pioneer in the RPA industry. Having such a long operating track record does provide reassurances over the quality and trustworthiness of the product and indeed the company Softomotive. Undoubtedly, the key selling proposition of WinAutomation is value-for-money. Among the established RPA software, WinAutomation is arguably the most attractive priced, which is an important consideration if you are looking to scale automation within your entire organization. It is also worth nothing that WinAutomation is essentially the designer, attended and unattended robot all rolled into one software.
Additionally, WinAutomation has some pretty interesting features, including:
• Triggers and Schedules – WinAutomation allows you to run your processes automatically without your interference using triggers and schedules. Some of the use cases include triggering a process to execute when a certain type of email is received, or when a particular file is added to a watched folder. The best part is that the processes are only triggered when the event criteria is met. This is important because you do not want to consume robotic capacity unnecessarily.
• Secure Screen – One of the perennial concerns around RPA is security. To help ensure data privacy, especially when the process is running unattended, WinAutomation has added a feature known as secure screen. With this option selected, when the process is running, the screen turns blue and no one will be able to pry into what the robot is doing. Perfect for sensitive processes such as payroll automation!
• Concurrency – Similar to the concept of employees multitasking, WinAutomation supports the parallel execution of many processes at the same time. This is unlike most other RPA software where work is done sequentially. By using a smart queuing technology, WinAutomation enables you to optimize the robotic performance in terms of time and efficiency (and hence more bang for your bucks).
