Enterprise Automation Service

The WaTech Enterprise Automation Service is a Robotic Process Automation (RPA) tool for end-to-end high-scale automation that allows customers to securely deploy, manage, monitor, and optimize their entire automation life cycle and secure customer robot workforce from a central location.  The WaTech Enterprise Automation Platform utilizes the UiPath software as a service (SaaS) managed by WaTech on behalf of state agencies. 

Robotic process automation (RPA) is a software technology that makes it easy to build, deploy, and manage software robots that emulate human actions interacting with digital systems and software. Just like people, software robots can do things like understand what’s on a screen, complete the right keystrokes, navigate systems, identify, and extract data, and perform a wide range of defined actions.

Features & Benefits

  • Achieve more with robots that effortlessly work with humans and automate tasks using AI through UI and API.  Support both Attended and Unattended Robots.
  • Automate legacy systems via user interface.
  • Provide automation to business processes that touch multiple software solutions.
  • Speed up completion of repeatable steps done on a large scale.
