Announcing: Robot Assistants at your service!February 3, 2021 — Hanna Kettunen
Find out why and how to create and use human-in-the-loop automations with the help of Robot Assistants.
If your company is anything like ours, your team has dozens of repetitive but critical tasks that pop up. Things like requests to create or delete customer accounts, or ad-hoc data pulls. The common denominator in these tasks is that they are repetitive but show up sporadically, quickly becoming urgent fires that distract from our deeper work. You can’t schedule an employee on-boarding to happen every Friday or through an API. But wouldn’t it be great to be able to trigger that just with a push of a button once you have that hire confirmed? Today, we’re making it easier than ever to create human-in-the-loop automations with the help of Robot Assistants.
Do you have a superuser triggering the assistant many times a day? Or perhaps your use case will require 100 different support people to occasionally migrate a customer plan to a different one. Robot Assistants are a convenient way to distribute automations to anyone in your company.
All Robocorp accounts now come with one free-to-use Assistant. On paid tiers, you can buy additional assistants at 30USD/month. Note: use of Assistants doesn’t count towards your minute consumption. More on pricing here: robocorp.com/pricing.
See for yourself! Read our Assistant Quick Guide or follow a short in-product-tour in Robocorp Cloud. If you want to see the assistants in action quickly, use one of our example robots. To run the Assistants, you will need to download Robocorp App. Useful feature alert: using the RPA.Dialogs library, you can add a UI to your robot, too.
Pay per Assistant
All Robocorp accounts come with one free-to-use Assistant. On paid tiers, you can buy additional assistants cost 30USD/month. Note: Use of assistants don't count in towards our minute consumption!
Assistants can be distributed to as many users as needed. Maybe you have one superuser triggering the Assistant many times a day, or perhaps your use case will require 100 different people to use it occasionally. The price of the Assistant bought during the ongoing billing period is prorated. More on the pricing here: robocorp.com/pricing.
You can activate and configure the cap for the number of assistants allowed in Robocorp Cloud. If the number of active assistants is higher than then assistant cap, extra assistants will be inactivated at the end of the billing period.
Migration from Beta Assistants. If you are just using one Assistant, you can keep using it up to your plan's run time limits (100/1000/3000 assistant runs per month for Free/Basic/Pro plans, respectively). The billing will become effective with a grace period as follows:
- Beginning of next monthly cycle on Free tier. If you signed up to Robocorp on the 25th of a given month, this means the 25th of February.
- 30 days after the beginning of the next billing cycle if you are on a paid plan (Basic or Pro)
Robocorp will not force upgrades to billing, you can upgrade your plan during the grace period, should you so choose.
