Pega Robotic Automation includes a Microsoft Visual Studio-based design tool (Studio) where you create automations, a runtime client (Runtime/Agile Desktop) that runs the automation on the user's desktop, and a cloud-based tool (Deployment Portal) that helps you to implement and manage the automations that you develop. With these tools, you can create and implement the following types of robotic automations:
- Pega Robotic Desktop Automation (RDA) helps you to automate business processes and transactions by letting you create “personal robots” that run collaboratively on Runtime client desktops to automate tasks and workflows. For instance, in a customer service environment, your representatives (CSRs) can focus on the customer while the robotic automation gathers the information that the CSR needs, records and populates any changes made to the account, summarizes the call, reminds the CSR of any promotions that the customer might be eligible for, and so on.
- Pega Robotic Process Automation (RPA) lets you create robotic automations to automate repetitive back office work, such as adjudicating claims, onboarding customers or employees, reconciling financials, and updating customer information. Pega RPA solutions can manage this type of work across your enterprise without user interaction.
Whether you create desktop or process automations or both, with Studio, Runtime/Agile Desktop, and Deployment Portal, you can create and implement robotic automations that work with your employees or for them, making them more productive and efficient, while minimizing errors.
