Future of Robotic Process Automation: Zappy vs Blue Prism vs UIPath vs Automation Anywhere
Every day Fin-tech corps globally are discerning at RPA based solutions to enter the digital workspace. The basic idea is that employee no longer has to spend time on mundane tasks like entering data, copying, filling forms etc. RPA is certainly effective with most companies getting their ROIs with in a span of 2 years of implementation. It saves time freeing up the employees for strategic initiatives. The benefits outweigh the costs involved in some areas of business process, if not all.
With an array of RPA variants available in the current market, the question that existing and future users face is “Can RPA do more than repeat a business process?” Many believe that intelligent RPA will be the pinnacle of business automation.
Gartner, the global research and advisory firm, predicts that “by 2020, 20% of organizations that used RPA will have replaced it with another tool, either for a lower total cost of process or improved straight-through processing.
This is where new entrants like ZappyAI coming with a product that is smart (Artificial intelligence + RPA) and delivers cost-effective, highly responsive and simpler automation solutions are receiving great attention.
To comprehend what Zappy can do, let’s take an analogy. Transformer bot from the movie franchise “Transformers” looks like an ordinary automobile. However, it is intelligent, understands the user’s intent, super-fast, possess multitude of features and adapts to every situation. Well, Zappy is much like your Transformer friend on your Desktop, except that with current technology, it needs a human master to initiate the desired automation task as per the application.
How is ZAPPY different from RPA?
Zappy is a Cognitive — Robotic Process Automation (C — RPA) software that learns employees’ actions by simply observing their behavior and can create automation in less than one minute. Zappy users can see ROIs with-in six months of adoption.
Zappy can be automated in a minute while others take at least 30 minutes.
No coding required-use inbuilt activities to create automation while in other RPA’s we have to write sting manipulated code or devise a workflow.
All PDF models can be handled by declaring the source PDF source path while others need to create workflow that handles all PDF models which is extremely difficult.
Single automation works — Tables can be extracted to Excel in just 2 steps.

Tables in PDF files are identified and extracted to data tables which can be saved in Excel Sheet while with other RPA’s we have to create different Extraction for every PDF Model — requires third party software or tools with good OCR data extraction.
RPA like Zappy will play quick & large ROI’s, reduce cyber security risks,easier data managements, satisfied employees & customers & strategically improves computational positioning.
