RPA tools without coding
RPA tools make it possible to integrate and automate dataflows between two online systems. But can you build and manage RPA tools without coding?
RPA tools are great. They make it possible to automate your processes and business flow. So a great idea that has the potential to do great things for your business.
You only get the value of an idea when it is implemented
However, you only get the value of an idea when it is implemented. And this brings us to the core of this article. “RPA without coding”. Because a lot of people find the implementation of RPA projects hard and expensive. Because for many, an RPA implementation is, in fact, a small IT project. Gartner estimates that the average RPA installation costs 20.000 USD. Such a cost level indicates that most RPA projects are not easy to manage.
Huge implementation costs
So if the road to implement your process optimation requirements are met by a huge implementation obstacle, then there is too big a risk that you will never see the implementation and value of what you could have created.
So in this article, we look at five process automation tools. They are not the most advanced tool in the world. Because that is not the point, the point is that it is better to have made automation rather than have an idea that can’t be implemented because it is too costly if you use the 20.000 USD per implementation approach.
Low code or no code?
On a very high conceptual level, RPA automation requires two things to be able to run. There must be an integration between two or more business systems. And there must be automation that performs a task.
When it comes to talking about low code or no code implementation of RPA tools, it can mean either the automation or it could mean the integration part of the process.
So we have selected 5 Tools that can be implemented without coding because it is the coding that makes them expensive. If you can make a process code-free, then it means that you can implement with the business knowledge that you have.
The first tool is Cognifirm. This tool lets you automate your Excel entry tasks just as it can move data automatically from one web form to another. It works as a plug-in in your browser that helps you finish your data entry tasks faster. So it is not an RPA tool in a conventional context because it does not help you with automation between two business systems as such.
The next no-code automation system is one of the major RPA players, U.Path
It is often claimed that UiPath can be configured without coding. Witch, to a large extent, is true. UiPath has a build-in drag editor that can be used to build and configure automation without code.
However, the to-do so requires that all the system integrations that you need have been build already. They are normally based on API or other system integrations. And this part still needs to be coded before you can use your UiPath installation without code.
