Top 5 Bots & Packages on Automation Anywhere Bot Store

Updated: Oct 21, 2020

Robotic process automation (or RPA) is a form of business process automation technology based on metaphorical software robots (bots) or artificial intelligence (AI)/digital workers.

RPA is one of the most sought out skills today. Companies like Automation Anywhere are constantly re-inventing the way we work.

I often get questions on how can someone begin with RPA and if there are some pre-built bots to which can accelerate the learning and development time. One of the key offerings from Automation anywhere is their bot store.

Automation Anywhere Bot Store is the largest marketplace today for ready-to-deploy business automation. It has helped many businesses and developers to accelerate their automation journey.

Here I am sharing the list of top 5 bots & packages that I use and highly recommend.

This package provides some great features like creating charts on the go, view some of the complex variables like a dictionary, list, table, etc.
