WinActor is a software robot which learns and comprehends how to manipulate Windows applications. WinActor can automate almost all kinds of operations without limiting the target applications. The simple and easy scenario creation enables any users can easily utilize WinActor without programming skills. WinActor allows users to be flexible to determine when and where the streamlining plan will be implemented. Users can focus on their primary operations and new business chances by having WinActor take care of their routine operations.



The Features of WinActor (Details)

WinActor is equipped with various favorable features. The chart below shows WinActor’s features which are highly rated by the users.


What WinActor can handle for you

WinActor can handle Windows applications, internal systems, ERP, and OCR. From creating input data to uploading data in systems, WinActor automatically processes various operations for you. Also, users can flexibly select the levels of human intervention to be required for controlling a scenario.


Automate operations with WinActor

WinActor is easy and simple to use! Users are not required to have special skills such as programming knowledge for scenario creation. Users can automate operations on the very same day of installing WinActor. Also, users can easily add functions and edit contents in scenarios to meet the specific requirements of each operation.



How to automate operations ~Create Scenario~

Record your operations with WinActor. Start WinActor, select a recording mode, and then start PC operations as usual. WinActor automatically converts your PC manipulations into a flowchart for creating a scenario.


How to automate operations ~Edit Scenario~

Users can add Nodes and Libraries to the scenario which WinActor automatically creates by recording your PC manipulations or separately designate the target data to enhance its contents. The accuracy of reproducing humans operations will be increased by adding decision-making or looping processes. Users can find various kinds of frequently-used-operations in the Library. Using those libraries allows users to avoid recording every action to be required for a scenario creation. Your operations will be automatically converted to a flowchart. Users can visualize the contents by naming each node, which allows any users to understand and edit the contents.


How to automate operations ~Run Scenario~

The “Run” button starts running your scenario. The running speed is selectable in the range from 0 to 10 to streamline operations in terms of “quickness”. Users can even automate “starting WinActor” by using task scheduler.


Introduction Flow​ ​

Path for full-scale operation of RPA

1. Evaluation/Trial phase

・The 1-month evaluation license with fee and various training courses are available for users to learn about WinActor.

・Identify the operations to be automated in your company.

2. Partial introduction phase​ ​

・Install WinActor in a few departments.

・Review the outcomes, challenges, and improvements after using evaluation license and develop a plan for full-scale operation.

・For RPA full-scale operation in company, develop an established structure and regulations to support and maintain RPA introduction.​ ​


3. Full-scale operation phase
