Robotic Process Automation

This Comidor feature allows you to automate your repetitive tasks. With the new RPA Caller and RPA receiver workflow components, you are enabled to retrieve or exchange data with other systems. RPA can be integrated into:

  • Process initiation
  • Report generation
  • Files upload in Comidor Document Management System (DMS)

With Comidor RPA you can:

  • Automate repetitive tasks
  • Increase productivity of employees as they can perform more tasks than focusing on repetitive business procedures
  • Speed up time-consuming processes

Before involving RPA Agents and Scripts inside a workflow design, the following actions need to take place:

  1. Install an RPA agent to the pc (any unit) that you wish to perform RPA tasks
  2. Save Agent’s properties (will be needed in Comidor RPA Agent set up)
  3. Install the RPA software (eg. we used Sikulix for the following examples)
  4. Create your script with all actions that you want the RPA to replicate
  5. Save your script (name of the Script will be needed in Comidor RPA Script set up)
