Introducing Robocorp Cloud: the simplest, fastest solution to building a software robot workforce in the cloudOctober 1, 2020 — Antti Karjalainen
See how we're simplifying cloud-based software robot development with our powerful platform
At Robocorp, our mission is straightforward.
First, make it easy and fast for developers to build software robots with first-class, open-source tools. Second, provide a single platform to run and manage your robot workforce from the cloud to automate large, complex processes at incredible scale and an affordable price point.
And while we have even bigger ideas for what we can eventually help you do with those robots - like harnessing AI and ML or tracking the ROI of your robots over time - democratizing access to RPA with intuitive, accessible tools sits at the center of our beliefs.
Today, with our general release of Robocorp Cloud, we’re taking one step closer to realizing that mission.
ROBOCORP CLOUD: ONE SECURE PLATFORM TO MANAGE AND RUN A SOFTWARE ROBOT WORKFORCE IN THE CLOUD
You know what’s cool? A software robot that replaces monkey work so you can work on more intellectually stimulating things.
You know what’s cooler? An entire software robot workforce that runs securely in the cloud and can tackle thousands of tasks and processes simultaneously!
With Robocorp Cloud, we’re revolutionizing the way RPA developers and their teammates run and maintain software robots. Teams can run processes virtually and concurrently, manage jobs triggered via API calls, monitor progress with real-time reporting and dashboards, and get notified if robots fail for any reason. And it can all be done from your browser in one intuitive platform.
Use cases that are particularly well-suited for a cloud-based robot workforce are:
Several small, repetitive tasks - From shepherding data between tools to SOW approvals to triaging support tickets, these small, repetitive tasks are necessary evils at every organization. But when considered in aggregate, they’re a big time suck. And they’re ripe for automation. While hard to justify with large RPA vendors’ expensive licensing costs, Robocorp’s consumption-based pricing ensures you see a return on your investment.
Complex processes that interact with many cloud apps and external APIs - As more enterprises switch from on-prem to cloud, complex workflows built on top of systems like Oracle and NetSuite can be automated faster and cheaper with cloud-based software robots. Robocorp Cloud’s robust APIs make it easier than ever to build custom cloud RPA solutions that integrate seamlessly with all of your existing business systems.
Large, high volume processes - With a cloud-scale RPA solution like Robocorp, you can automate complex processes like insurance claims processing, healthcare patient record management, and recurring financial reporting in record time and with 100% accuracy. Unconstrained by robot licenses, Robocorp Cloud ensures your jobs run efficiently with a scalable robot workforce.

HOW TO SET UP A SOFTWARE ROBOT WORKFORCE IN 4 STEPS
Developers can begin using our platform immediately by following our quick start guide, but the process for launching a software robot workforce is simple:
Step 1: Configure and code your robot using our free tools
Step 2: Push your configured robot to our Robocorp Cloud platform
Step 3: Test your robot’s behavior in our cloud environment
Step 4: Schedule as many concurrent robotic processes as you wish, choosing to either automate the activity based on triggers or APIs, or set them to run at specified times.

ONLY PAY FOR THE ROBOT TIME YOU USE
We believe you should only pay when your robots are delivering value to your business. With Robocorp, there are no complex licensing schemes or prohibitive limitations. We only charge for the time it takes your robot to complete its task. And without license constraints, your robot workforce can scale to efficiently meet the task at hand.
Here’s an example: for every new hire, it takes your teammate in HR 20 minutes to onboard them into the Human Resource Information System (HRIS). You build a robot that gets it done for them in 2 minutes. We charge just 5 cents per robot run minute, so you pay a total of 10 cents. And your teammate gets 18 minutes back to re-invest in more strategic work.
