Starting today, all Robocorp products are publicly available for everyone.

You can sign-up and start building software robots right now, without requesting a demo or getting on a waiting list. Our developer tool, Robocode Lab, comes with batteries included. It is a single-installer IDE for building software robots with open-source technologies.

Robocloud is a seamless platform for operating and running software robots. It is always available and doesn't require complicated infrastructure setup. Pricing on Robocloud is based on the actual time your software robots are working, not where and how you run them. And the best part is that our developer plan is free.

This is what we have build

To dive deeper into the Robocorp Suite, let's go over the products that you can use to learn all about software robots, build powerful automation with open-source tools, and run your software robots with our cloud platform.

Robohub - Site for learning software robot development

Robohub is a constantly growing repository of learning materials and documentation for software robot developers. These resources are freely available and can be used by developers to learn about software robots and RPA.

With the help of the courses and tutorials, you can quickly get the gist of the human-readable syntax of Robot Framework. Beginners' course is aimed at those of you starting your software robot developer path. There is also a growing repository of tutorials to support more advanced use.

Robohub also hosts a curated selection of recommended resources for building software robots. You can browse through the selection of open source libraries and a keyword search to help you easily find what you need.

Robocode - The developer toolkit for building software robots

Robocode empowers developers with all skill levels to start building software robots.

Robocode Lab provides an easy way to get everything needed in one place. With the simple installer (we support Windows, macOS, and Linux) you get an environment designed for software robot development. You can focus on building instead of figuring out packages and configurations. If you want to bring your own editor instead or integrate with CI tools, you can choose to use Robocode CLI.

Open-source RPA Framework libraries support the automation of typical use-cases with Robot Framework and Python. You can automate processes just by combining simple keywords like "open browser" and "click element". Our open ecosystem is also extendable with any external Python library and you can find a listing of our favorite Robot Framework libraries at Robohub.

Robocode, together with RPA Framework, addresses RPA-specific needs, such as handling user credentials, inspecting elements, and maintaining configurations for production and dev environments. Robocode enables interactive editing making tasks like locator handling and cropping template images quick and seamless.

Robocloud - Platform for putting software robots to work

Robocloud allows you to start operating software robots in an instant. It's always available and doesn't require complicated infrastructure setup. We have designed Robocloud to scale from a small proof-of-concept to large enterprise operations. This shows in both the technology architecture and our pricing model.

Being cloud-native brings many benefits ranging from ease of use to security. However, we know that software robots need to run often inside local networks. That's why our Robocloud Workers can operate either in self-hosted environments or in our cloud as fully hosted containers.

Security is Robocloud's guiding design principle. In practice, this is shown on many levels of the product. The Vault allows users to store sensitive information, like user credentials, that are used by software robots. Robocloud Workers use bi-directional authentication to verify that the connection between the cloud and the worker is secure. Support for multiple workspaces inside Robocloud enables organizations to control user access to different processes and data.

What's next

From here, we will continue to iterate and improve our products. Expect to see constant new releases and follow our changelog to stay up-to-date with our progress. If you want to get in touch with us, the best way to do so is to sign-up for a Robocorp account, and get on our developer Slack.
