Robotics Process Automation (RPA) is a software-based technology used to automate lengthy or tedious manual business processes. The benefits of RPA are many, like cost savings, improved internal processes and reduced workload. RPA is widely used in different domains and industries like finance, retail, analytics and manufacturing.
Unlike the traditional way of programming, RPA does not require a lot of backend coding.
But despite its promises, RPA has never reached its full potential. The reasons are many, but here is the main: Complicated, unintuitive RPA tools bloated with features and functions difficult to understand and even harder to put into practice.
Tatesoft Workflow Server is just opposite of that – A simple, clean and intuitive RPA platform that enables you to build software robots with unprecedented easiness and reliability. With Tatesoft RPA platform, you can start building your software robots with minimum effort and progress quickly and efficiently, developing new skills along the way. Building the complex, large-scale software robots is no longer fantasy, but a reality thanks to the unique features of Tatesoft Workflow Server.
Tatesoft Workflow Server is the first product on the market that brings the modern development principles into the world of RPA. It provides features that make RPA easier than ever. Features like background compilation, code completion, scopes, local variables and design-time error checking are today standard part of virtually all development tools. But until now, they were mostly unknown in the world of RPA. Tatesoft RPA platform changes fundamentally this situation by providing these and many other features that robot developers have been asking for years. With Tatesoft Workflow Server, you can now design and build large-size software robots whose complexity is far beyond what other RPA platforms are capable to deal with.
“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication” - Leonardo da Vinci
Tatesoft Workflow Server is the first RPA platform built on the principle that most systems work best if they are kept simple. The simplicity of Workflow Server was the key goal in design, and the complexity is intentionally kept minimal. Tatesoft Workflow Server is considered as being most user friendly and intuitive platform on RPA market. Even people with minimal IT background can easily understand the simple design principles behind Tatesoft RPA platform. Learning how to build software robots is now a matter of minutes, not weeks or months as it is often the case with other RPA platforms.
"Make simple tasks simple” - Bjarne Stroustrup
RPA platforms usually use flowcharts as the way to represent robot logic. While flowcharts are suitable tool for small and simple software robots, they are not the best choice for large-scale robots. The most famous feature of flowcharts is their ability to produce "spaghetti" robots – the problem that Tatesoft Workflow Server effectively solves by offering robot designer built on the principles of modular programming. The modular programming enforces logical, non-spaghetti structure on the software robots making them easy to understand, modify and extend.
Tatesoft Workflow Server is the only RPA platform that is truly able to deal with complex, large-size software robots. Thanks to the unique robot editor, you can now manage software robots of any size and complexity.
Tatesoft Workflow Server and its unique robot editor cuts significantly robot development time, saving you money and time, and maximizing the return of your RPA investments.
“Simplicity is prerequisite for reliability” - Edsger Dijkstra
Design-time error checking is one of the most valuable features of RPA editors. Errors not discovered at design-time will eventually show up once the software robot begins to execute. Finding and fixing errors at run-time is often time consuming and, in many cases, requires expert level skills.
Tatesoft RPA platform comes with the unique set of design-time error checking features. Every input used to configure the robot behavior is subject of rigorous validations. These validations prevent many common design-time errors like use of incompatible data types and values, defining unreachable robot segments, referencing robot segments that are out of scope and much more. It has never been easier to deliver error-free software robots thanks to the unique helper features of Tatesoft Workflow Server robot editor.
“Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler” - Albert Einstein
Tatesoft Workflow Server converts all external data into the standard data tables regardless of the original data format. Having all data as ordinary tables makes it possible to process them using standard SQL language. SQL language is most efficient and easiest way to process data in software robots. It is most widespread data processing language known and loved by millions of IT professionals. By using SQL language, robot developers can now focus on actual data processing, not on technology behind them.
Tatesoft Workflow Server is only RPA platform that makes it possible to use standard SQL language across multiple data tables. You can fetch data using any protocol (REST, SOAP, etc.) and combine them with data from different applications (Excel, SAS, etc.) by executing simple SQL “Select” command. It could not be made simpler!
Tatesoft Workflow Server robot editor uses two basic building blocks: tasks and control elements. In short, a task is prebuilt piece of functionality used to integrate systems and applications into software robots.
Tatesoft Workflow Server comes with number of tasks ready to use in your software robots. They are grouped together according to their type. The list of out-of-box tasks is long and contains tasks for all common robot operations. However, you are not constrained only to the tasks that ship with Tatesoft Workflow Server. You can create custom tasks that implement any functionality you miss in your software robots.
The following table shows some of the common tasks used to build software robots. They all ship with Tatesoft Workflow Server. For the full list of the provided tasks, please refer to the platform documentation.
|Microsoft Office||read, write, manipulate content, execute macro|
|Microsoft Exchange||tasks for manipulating mails, calendar, folders|
|SAS||create SAS data set, execute SAS program|
|Databases||select, insert, update, execute SP|
|FTP||download, upload, list content|
|WEB||download web resource, scrape web content|
|Windows OS||execute executable file, call Windows API function|
|File system||create, copy, move, delete, read, write|
|Data table||task for creating and manipulating data tables from different data sources|

"Our partnership with Tatesoft has proved to be very valuable for our company. We had been searching for a way to improve our reporting capabilities based on the data from Jira and TimeLog, and Tatesoft Workflow Server had shown to be the perfect tool for that. We were amazed by how easy it was to create software robots able to fetch data from Jira and TimeLog and combine them with Excel and our mail system. These software robots are truly success stories, and we are aiming to expand greatly the number of software robots built with Tatesoft Workflow Server."
