Typical RPA benefits include the ability to 1) reduce human error, 2) accelerate time to value, 3) increase throughput, and 4) reduce costs. IBM Robotic Process Automation enables workforce augmentation by performing repetitive tasks, acting on data extracted from unstructured documents, and conversing with intelligent chatbots using text and voice response.
In addition, IBM Robotic Process Automation helps clients apply intelligence to classify and understand content, prioritize tasks, make predictive decisions and apply AI to operational data. Core automation features enable users to manage work along with monitoring and reporting capabilities.
Finally, organizations can accelerate time to value by creating, testing and deploying new automation schemes in hours, instead of days or months.

The organization uses the IBM RPA tool to build many functional robots with different characteristics, that are suitable to the sector of the client to whom it is shown. It is being used by a department. The department addresses many business problems. It depends on the client but in general, the ideas are raised and developed with all possible details, using powerful commands that the tool has to reach amazing robots.
- IBM RPA provides almost all the features and commands to do our work faster and more efficiently, the speed and precision of completing a task are really excellent.
- IBM RPA has the ability to integrate with other technologies through the efficient use of selectors.
- The platform is very comfortable and easy to use, you do not need to have strong programming skills. It is just drag and drop actions to develop great automation ideas.
- IBM RPA is a powerful tool for automating many daily tasks, it works well in both assisted and unattended automation processes.
- The updates are faster.
- IBM RPA could have commands to create and process charts.
- IBM RPA could have more commands to process audios and videos, especially to detect the times when certain words appear.
- The launcher could show the chatbots that are developed.
- It could have more commands to process image details such as colors and pixels, among others.
- Add OCR with greater precision, especially for image reading.
- The interface to develop workflows could also improve.
The IBM RPA community has been very useful. Small problems and doubts have been solved with the greatest professionalism, in the shortest possible time, by experts of the tool. It is a very interactive space and you always find the answers to your questions before posting them. You can also find many ways to solve doubts or a specific problem.
- Interaction with the browser
- Run debug
- System Vault
- Own script language
- The record function
- Scheduler and launcher impossibility of stopping an execution
- Commands, explanations, and examples
- Data entry and retrieval
- Multi-application working platform
- Error- handling
- It would have been cool, if you can code in different languages for the same bot.
- Scheduling and running few programs is difficult.
- Accuracy and precision for a bulk data.
It can be widely used for application purposes for jobs and colleges.
It is well suited for a well-data-managed and equipped environment.
It is least suited for transactions that include complexity.
It is not preferred for programming a bot with multiple language protocols.
- Out-of-box IBM chat bot functionality is great. I was able to implement it with very minimal coding effort.
- Out-of-box SMTP connectivity, email reader including attachment is also nice functionality that help to automate lot of support monitoring activities.
- Out-of-box plugins for SQL server was also really nice and helped us to quickly configure our database connectivity.
- I was challenged to implement IVR functionality with IBM RPA.
- Machine Learning Integration
- Scripting Function
- Easy sharing of scripts
- Training possibilities
- Bugs because it is still quite new
- Documentation provided functional examples for each API
- IDE to develop the script is adequate
- Chrome integration works well
- Script execution is speedy
- I couldn't figure out a way to execute REST call to 3rd party rest API. Or maybe it's not fully supported, I remember I couldn't include file in the payload.
- I think a way to fully disassemble web page elements would make it easier for user to find the element they are looking for.
- Google drive integration doesn't seem to work consistently.
- It is a low code tool. We just built our first bot within 2 weeks with learning from scratch.
- It has chatbot, IVR, scheduling capability. RPA script can be called as a http call.
- It can easily automate UI manual work and has [a] record option which automatically generates the required codes.
- It can easily integrate with REST, SOAP service, DB, mail server.
