What is Desktop Automation?

Desktop automation is robotic process automation scaled down for a single user. Desktop RPA tools install on a single machine for one user and helps people solve the problems within their sphere. Think of it as automatically checking boxes off one person’s to-do list.

Desktop automation tools have bots that interact with websites, log into applications, pull data from Excel files, transfer files, generate reports, and much more.

What could you do with robotic desktop automation?

Business users like customer service representatives can simplify their tasks with desktop application automation and automated call setup. And IT can automate workflows using any of the tasks in the list to get rid of tedious, manual tasks and eliminate error.

What's the Difference Between RPA, RDA, and BPA?

Robotic desktop automation vs robotic process automation


Enterprise robotic process automation lives on your network and works with applications used by the entire organization. Multiple users with different permission sets can work together.

RDA (robotic desktop automation)


Robotic desktop automation is for processes that only involve one person, one desktop, and the applications that live on the desktop. 

BPA (business process automation)


Business process automation can accomplish many of the same tasks that an enterprise robotic process automation solution can accomplish. It works on a larger scale for larger organizations.

Get the full picture on the difference between RPA and BPA.
