Leader in RPA Launches New Features for Developers to Create Recurring Revenue Streams in Bot Store
Automation Anywhere, a global leader in Robotic Process Automation (RPA), announced that it has reached a key milestone achieving 100,000 bot downloads from its Bot Store since it launched just 19 months ago.
This achievement underscores RPA as one of the fastest-growing enterprise software categories in the world and enables organizations to gain benefits from automation that include greater productivity and lower operating costs. According to Gartner, “Robotic process automation software revenue grew 63.1 percent in 2018 to $846 million, making it the fastest-growing segment of the global enterprise software market. Gartner expects RPA software revenue to reach $1.3 billion in 2019.”
Automation Anywhere’s Bot Store is the industry’s first and largest online marketplace for enterprise grade ready-to-deploy intelligent automation from a vast ecosystem of developers, subject matter experts and Automation Anywhere partners. The Bot Store now offers 600 bots that can automate routine tasks, as well as 20 Digital Workers that offer a set of skills to automate parts of a traditionally defined job role, by thinking, acting and analyzing the way humans do.
“Achieving 100,000 bot downloads in less than two years emphasizes the rapid trajectory of RPA, while enabling organizations worldwide to maximize operating efficiencies and reduce business costs,” said Max Mancini, Executive Vice President of the Digital Worker Ecosystem at Automation Anywhere. “Bots and Digital Workers downloaded from Bot Store help organizations complete their automation projects up to 70 percent faster and at half the cost, while leveraging the knowledge of technical experts, developers and our partners.”
With the Bot Store, enterprises also have the ability to download bots to automate business applications from organizations like Atlassian, Oracle, SAP and Workday. Bot Store also enables Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) to build recurring revenue streams and unleash innovation with exclusive, newly released features.
- Ability for customers to more easily discover, download and view Bot Store products.
- A comprehensive suite of tools for ISVs to more effectively create, protect, submit and market their bots and Digital Workers.
- Sophisticated, new code protection to allow ISVs to innovate confidently and keep valuable IP private.
- License management feature to help ISVs drive conversion and renewals with metered 30-day trials and annual subscriptions.
By helping ISVs build sustainable businesses, customers obtain dedicated support and ongoing service for their automation projects.
