Global technology giant Microsoft has announced that its Power Automate Desktop solution will be generally available to Windows 10 users in India at no additional cost. Power Automate Desktop for Windows 10 is a new low-code, Robotic Process Automate (RPA) application that helps businesses to automate manual tasks and focus on higher-value work to achieve more.
“In the new dynamic and competitive remote reality, the democratization of technology is a major focus of Microsoft to increase the productivity of organizations and individuals. With Power Automate Desktop for Windows 10, we are making it possible to automate processes in a logical, clear, simple way without the need to write a single line of code,” Praveen Mellacheruvu, Business Lead – Business Applications, Microsoft India, said.
According to Mellacheruvu, by bringing robotic process automation to Windows 10, everyone across an organization can collectively focus on work that makes a difference for the bottom line.
Also the new easy to use application enables both coders and non-coders alike to optimize their workflows – from simple data transfers to complex business processes. The solution is part of the Microsoft Power Automate Service.
The new RPA for Windows 10 users can also empower businesses and their knowledge-workers to focus on strategic tasks to deliver higher value to customers. Power Automate Desktop for Windows 10 can also minimize human errors, simplify workflows, reduce maintenance effort and cost, and improve scalability while ensuring security.
The RPA capabilities of Power Automate Desktop for Windows 10 also streamlines workflows across modern and legacy applications on the desktop by recording actions such as mouse and keyboard clicks.
The new system records repetitive actions from the desktop across multiple applications such as SharePoint, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Outlook, and many third-party applications—as well as websites, and then lets users replay the automation whenever needed.
With the solution, users can also automate the collection of data across multiple sources—such as a database, webpages, Excel files, PDFs, and more—to auto-generate a report based on requirements.
The new Power Automate Desktop is also available worldwide in English, French, German, Japanese and Spanish. Earlier this year, Microsoft acquired Softomotive, a London-based RPA solutions provider, to expand low-code, robotic process automation capabilities in Microsoft Power Automate, strengthening the ability for anyone to automate processes.
Microsoft said its Power Automate service is being used by more than 350,000 organizations worldwide to build and deploy custom, end-to-end business solutions using low-code solutions.
