Automation Anywhere, a New York-based Robotic Process Automation (RPA) company, has announced expanded opportunities for Independent Software Vendors (ISVs), system integrators and software developers to create and generate recurring revenue from bots and digital workers in its Bot Store; an online marketplace for preconfigured downloadable RPA bots.
The Bot Store now offers developers a new distribution channel with access to thousands of enterprises that use the company’s Intelligent Digital Workforce platform. The platform uses software bots that work side by side with people to do much of the repetitive work in many industries, combining RPA, AI and embedded analytic technologies.
“We’re building a world-class ecosystem of developers that can enable enterprises to deploy automation faster and at a lower cost,” said Max Mancini, executive vice president of the Digital Worker Ecosystem at Automation Anywhere. “This is a win-win for both developers and business users and it further drives expansion of the bot economy.”
Developers can leverage Community Edition, a free offering that provides access to the full suite of Automation Anywhere’s products, as well as training programs and certifications. A community portal has also been made available, providing forums, information, support and share ideas and expertise.
Automation Anywhere claims more than 2,800 customer entities and 1,600 enterprise brands use their AI-enabled solution to manage and scale business processes faster and more accurately, while also reducing operational costs. Targeted verticals include financial services, insurance, healthcare, technology, manufacturing, telecom and logistics.
The program is intended to help developers to more effectively monetize bots developed for RPA and AI – two fast-growing software categories.
