Learning and growing in your respective domains while your RPA bots take care of all the mundane aspects seems like a plan. Whether it’s monotonous data entry processes or other repetitive front-end and back-end tasks, your bot does it all. But have you wondered whether these software bots may also have their specializations? Just like you may be an expert in one domain and not so much in another, one can also classify RPA bots basis their expertise.
We have already told you about the difference between physical bots and process bots. We’re back with a blog; and today, let’s look at the differences between the 3 types of RPA bots – task-bots, meta-bots and IQ bots:
1. TASK-BOTS: YOUR MOST BASIC RPA BUDDY
Are you hassled with rule-based documentation tasks such as managing claims, data entry tasks relating to HR and administration, procure-to-pay, repetitive IT processes etc.? Then your task-bot is here to make things more efficient for you! Task-bots are the most commonly used types of software bots in the Automation Anywhere software. Employing task-bots in your workforce can help you get rid of monotonous back-end processes and ensure cost reduction.
2. MEET THE META-BOTS AND (UP)SCALE YOUR PROCESSES!
Often, a company may employ one software bot in multiple apps and processes. And it is but natural for developers to carry out regular updates on these process bots as per the growing industrial requirements. So, should a developer invest his/her efforts in editing the bot to suit each application and process that it automates? Meta-bot says, “no!”
With meta-bots entering the picture, you can now scale your bots efficiently. Whenever a developer makes changes to the meta-bot for one application or process, these changes automatically apply to all applications where that have implemented the bot!
3. IQ BOTS: THE MASTERMIND BEHIND YOUR EFFICIENT PROCESS BOTS
And now, it’s time to meet the leader of the bot gang: IQ bots. IQ bots possess the unique ability to differentiate between structured and unstructured chunks of data and engage in information-specific actions. Such efficient simulation between different types of information and instances makes the IQ bot extremely self-reliant. It relieves the humans of repetitive tasks and allows them ascend in their professional journeys! The IQ bot, thus, forms the backbone of the automation process.
Since all the three process bots have their own set of core competencies, the best bet is to consider every process individually before deciding which type of process bot to implement. There is no definite rule for applying RPA to processes. Each business process serves a different purpose, and a suitable automation solution should be devised taking each process individually into account.
