Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is a form of business process automation in a company. You can automate almost any business process in your company, especially if it involves several participants.
What's the difference between workflows and RPA workflows?
Bitrix24 has the "Workflows" tool for business processes automation for a long time. We've received feedback from our clients to make this tool easier to use.
Creating workflows using the RPA tool is like working with automation rules in tasks or CRM. First, you add stages that the workflow will move through, then you add actions that will be performed at each stage. For example, when you want to automate the business trip approval process, you can create "approval by supervisor" and "expenses reimbursement" stages. Then you add an assignment to a supervisor to approve or decline this trip to the first stage, and to the second, you need to add another assignment to an accountant to reimburse employee's expenses.
