Automation Anywhere, a global leader in Robotic Process Automation (RPA), unveiled a library of free, ready-to-use software bots for its free Community Edition product to enable business continuity and employee productivity amid the coronavirus (COVID-19).
Beginning now, users of its Community Edition – the company’s free version of its web-based, cloud-native digital workforce platform – can gain free access to the Community Edition Bot Pack, a broad set of bots to help automate a wide range of simple tasks as well as complex business processes.
“Intelligent automation has become a force of good to help reduce risks and increase efficiencies, from frontline workers to back-office experts,” said Prince Kohli, CTO of Automation Anywhere. “By offering free, ready-to-use bots, we are tearing down barriers to innovation and problem solving – making it easier for individuals and businesses the world over to come together as a community and start a grassroots movement to combat Covid-19 through the power of automation.”
The free bots have been developed by intelligent RPA experts at Automation Anywhere as well as the global RPA developer community. They are designed to automate processes in key business areas that have been impacted the most by COVID-19: business continuity, remote working, employee productivity, team communications, and more.
