By empowering business users to automate and control bots and their digital workforce from the palm of their hand, the new Automation Anywhere Mobile App will expand the reach of RPA and accelerate the development of the digital-first enterprise.
“It’s estimated that individuals spend an average of four hours a day on their mobile devices,” said Abhijit Kakhandiki, senior vice president, Products and Engineering for Automation Anywhere. “The ability to control bots and manage the entire digital workforce from a mobile device, always within easy reach, is a gamechanger.”
Today’s consumers have unprecedented control because of the vast choice they have in an I-want-it-now economy. To meet this unprecedented demand, enterprises must remove all the barriers to exceeding limitless customer expectations while driving unparalleled business performance. Having mobile control of bots removes one more important barrier in automating the processes which meet this demand.
Automation Anywhere is the first company to bring a secure mobile, on-demand solution to the RPA universe to help enterprises rapidly transition to a digital world. The new app is part of the company’s vision of helping organizations create an enterprise where human beings are not working like robots doing repetitive manual processes to compensate for the lack of automation. Instead, employees are liberated to do what human beings do best.
The Automation Anywhere Mobile App allows user to start, stop, pause or resume bots, monitor the status of bots, and measures the ROI from their digital workforce in real-time.
“Being able to kick off or cancel a bot from a mobile app becomes table stakes for evolving RPA,” said Maureen Fleming, program vice president of IDC’s Intelligent Process Automaton research. “As bots incorporate more AI and become more event-driven, the types of tasks available to be automated from a mobile device will explode.”
The launch of the new Automation Anywhere Mobile App for iOS and Android mobile devices is available to beta customers today and will be generally available at a later time in the quarter.
