Automation Anywhere releases new RPA solutions for Covid-19
The company’s platform enables customers to automate repetitive and manual tasks via software bots, thereby increasing productivity and the customer experience. With more than 850 ready-made solutions, the bot store is the largest marketplace for automation solutions.
“The new normal has forced companies to adapt differently so that remote workers can stay productive and businesses can maintain continuity,” said Mihir Shukla, CEO and co-founder of Automation Anywhere. “We pride ourselves on supporting the efforts of frontline workers in key services such as government, healthcare and other industries while mobilizing the power of the RPA community to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.”
The San Jose-based company said it is working with Microsoft to automate the manual processing of WHO clinical case forms. Automation Anywhere, commissioned by the UK’s National Health Service, is using its AI-powered IQ bot to extract patient information and process Covid-19 cases faster for the WHO.
The company worked with NetCraft to create a public service dashboard in Macau, China, that will provide citizens with vital information such as hospital waiting times and on-site masks availability. Automation Anywhere also worked with the IT consultancy Shezhen Pactera Information Ltd. on an employee risk assessment tool to manage Covid-19 in mainland China.
The company also uses its RPA solutions to help hotel agents who work from home. Using bots, remote workers can access data to change customer reservations.
The company’s new customizable software bots, such as For example, the Health Status Manager enables companies to continue operations when employees are sick and to summarize the results on a dashboard.
Automation Anywhere has also launched a $ 500,000 RPA Scholarship Fund that allows individuals to apply for a scholarship at the company’s university to learn RPA skills. The company also expanded its offering of free online training courses on creating bots.
The company has offices in more than 40 countries and a global network of 1,500 partners. Platinum business partners include consulting firms such as Accenture, the Big Four, Mazars, Protiviti and Cognizant. Consulting firms help clients customize and implement Automation Anywhere solutions to create better business processes.
