Low-code software company Appian has announced the availability of the Appian Robotic Workforce Manager for UiPath, the Robotic Process Automation (RPA) specialist.
The software optimises coordination between robots and humans.
Incorporating Appian Robotic Workforce Manager, users can use this tool to manage, scale and maximize ROI while providing visibility and access to the business.
Features of the software include ‘total visibility’ into the digital workforce on any device (web or mobile) via pre-built business reports and dashboards to track and manage robots across applications.
Automation Center of Excellence (CofE) leaders can provide this information to the business owners of respective RPA processes through web and mobile interfaces.
“Managing a digital workforce across systems, humans and robots effectively is important,“ said Dave Marcus, VP strategic product technology alliances at UIPath. “Through our partnership with Appian, our joint customers are able to [use] the Appian Robotic Workforce Manager to orchestrate a view of their workforce and maximize their automation efforts.”
The technology also works to provide automation of work ‘hand-offs’ between robots and people. It provides a case management and exception management framework that automates ‘human-in-the-loop’ tasks and eliminates manual hand-offs.
Director of product at Appian Prittam Bagani also says that the software comes with an automation manager to allow business process owners to request new automation and manage the life cycle of adding new automations.
Bagani states that this gives the Automation COE full visibility, compliance and control over all enterprise-wide RPA deployments. For companies that are building many RPA processes, it is obviously quite important to to track and prioritise new RPA processes and ongoing management of existing RPA processes.
Appian also released a no-code integration plug-in for UiPath — and — UiPath also released an integration for designers of the UiPath environment called ‘Appian Activity’ so that UiPath users can drag and drop it in UiPath for connectivity to Appian.
