Argos Labs CEO Shige gives 5 reasons to choose RPA+

We are grateful to Shige Sato for his time. He is a veteran of tech 30+ years of experience, co-founder & CEO of Argos Labs. Their solution, RPA+, is one of the leading solutions in no code RPA space. As we explained before, no code is the future of RPA.

Why should companies choose Argos Labs for their RPA solution?

I can provide 5 reasons. We have a superior, cheaper and future-proof solution compared to traditional RPA providers, our solution has been preferred by numerous Fortune 500 and we have won against leading RPA providers while competing for some of the largest clients. Read more


Robotic Desktop Automation: In-depth Guide [2020 update]

RDA, also called attended RPA, is Robotic Process Automation (RPA) for the masses. RPA includes:

  • Attended RPA which enables most knowledge workers to automate their work
  • Unattended RPA which runs in the background, completing tasks in batches
  • Hybrid: A combination of attended and unattended RPA tasks.

Read our RPA article’s types of RPA section for more on definition of different types RPA.

Just for clarity, we have seen the terms “RDA”, “attended RPA”, “personal bots” or “software assistants” used to mean the same type of program. We’ll refer to this type of program as “RDA” in this article but we also refer to it as “attended RPA” in other articles. Read more


No code / low code RPA tools enabling faster RPA in 2020

No code RPA (also called low code RPA when a limited amount of coding is required) is an emerging technology but there are already strong companies with commercial space emerging in this space. We see 2 major types of vendors in the space:

  • 1st generation RPA companies expanding their offering with low/no code solutions
  • 2nd generation RPA companies offering only no code solutions

1st generation RPA companies

While one of the largest RPA companies like Automation Anywhere still does not have a UX programming option, Unicorns like UiPath and BluePrism have been touting the effectiveness of their UX platforms since the last couple years. Though their UX has been growing in capability, we hear from implementation partners that most solutions are too complex to be built solely using the UX. Consultants inevitably end up relying on code to program the complex parts of RPA software. Read more


No code / Low code RPA: Guide to faster, cheaper RPA in 2020

As we explained in future of RPA, currently most RPA solutions require a time consuming programming process which is mostly outsourced to consulting companies, system integrators or niche RPA implementation companies. A new crop of companies are tackling this problem and developing no code RPA solutions. Unless you know the latest solutions, you could get stuck with a long programming period and heavy reliance on 3rd parties.

What is no code / low code RPA?

No code RPA solutions aim to completely reduce the need to code for RPA. While most common RPA tools have been offering UX support for a long time, UX of common RPA tools tends to be rather restrictive and developers mostly rely on programming to automate processes. Read more


Future of RPA: In-depth Guide to RPA Innovation in 2020

RPA tools are the most successful generalist automation tools for the modern enterprise but implementing RPA is not without pitfalls as we outlined before. We see 3 trends shaping the future of RPA:

  • Making RPA easier to deploy: Leading solution providers are working to simplify/facilitate the most labor expensive portions of RPA deployment which are design, development and maintenance.
  • Repetitive, simple tasks are a small part of current white collar work. RPA companies need to build or integrate AI capabilities to make their products more capable
  • Increasing commoditization of RPA is likely to trigger an increase in open source solutions

Feel free to read about any of these trends:

Facilitating RPA implementation

Facilitating development with no code RPA

Simplifying RPA programming will help democratize RPA and expand its use. Currently, most automation through RPA is achieved through programming which is one of the most major costs of RPA implementation. It’s also a limiting factor as RPA developers are required for RPA development. Unless you know the latest no code RPA solutions, you could get stuck with a long programming period and heavy reliance on 3rd parties. Read more
