PDF To Text Automation Using UiPath Studio

Introduction 

 
Robotic Process Automation is a technology that allows anyone today to configure computer software, or a “robot” to emulate and integrate the actions of a human interacting within digital systems to execute a business process.
 
RPA robots utilize the user interface to capture data and manipulate applications just like humans do. They interpret, trigger responses, and communicate with other systems in order to perform on a vast variety of repetitive tasks. Only substantially better: an RPA software robot never sleeps and makes zero mistakes.
 
UiPath is a leading Robotic Process Automation vendor providing a complete software platform to help organizations efficiently automate business processes.
 
UiPath Studio is a tool that can model an organization's business processes in a visual way.
