The company has reinforced the functionality of its English version so that the product can be used more easily and efficiently, and will also launch a Chinese version to make the product accessible to customers in China.

What is WinActor® ?

WinActor® is an RPA tool that NTT-AT has developed based on technologies invented by NTT Access Service Systems Laboratories. It initially records operations performed by Windows® applications and Web applications as a scenario and then automates those operations. It can accurately reproduce routinely recurring tasks or tasks that involve large volumes of data. In addition, without requiring any modifications to the existing systems concerned, it can automate complicated operations that have thus far been carried out manually or data input that involves a number of systems. It dramatically improves the efficiency, quality and cost-effectiveness of work that has previously been done manually. WinActor® can be applied to a wide range of business activities, regardless of business type or company size.

System collaboration:
⇒ Data can be input in conjunction with the ODBC data source.
Reinforced security:
⇒ A scenario protection function and a log output control function have been added.

Libraries for working with two browsers, Chrome and Microsoft Edge, have been added:
⇒ Developer tools have been added for Chrome and Microsoft Edge. By using WinActor® libraries for these browsers, the user can now automate processing on Chrome or Microsoft Edge without any need to use image matching or emulation.
