Robots are small software applications that run your RPA workflow in a system of your choice. Yes, it's pretty exciting.
These Robots must be triggered manually to start/stop. They cannot perform their tasks without manual input or authorization.
These Robots can be programmed to trigger automatically and/or can be controlled remotely. This type typically requires a separate application license for their management console, but a single management console can manage hundreds of Robots.
*Effort exclusive to workflow development only. RPA projects also typically include effort for business analysis and testing, generally taking up to 30% of development time. Effort for business analysis may vary based on requirements.
