Advantages of web-based RPA

by Allyson Burroughs, Head of Global Marketing | Posted on Sunday February 7, 2021

Almost all business today is being conducted on web-based systems. Collection and collation of data are done on the cloud, form filling, data extractions, website testing and a large number of other repetitive tasks have all become web-based. Most businesses have started moving virtually all their operations on to the cloud in search of greater efficiency at a lower cost.

Organizations are increasingly finding that most infrastructure, software, and processes are now only being offered on web-based platforms. Now, with the emergence of Robotic Process Automation (RPA) as one of the key drivers of efficiency, the cloud and RPA have become closely linked.

Technologies like the cloud and the Internet of Things are helping businesses and individuals become more interconnected. Being able to send, analyze, and interpret data on the go is one of the key drivers of IoT, and the cloud helps facilitate this. With RPA, all of these tasks can be more efficient.

Web-based RPA has changed the way people think of robotics. The strategies used have to be changed to adapt to the cloud. By using a web-based RPA, customers can see quicker results from using robotic automation.

RPA on Cloud– Quicker, more convenient solutions

Developing on-site RPA solutions for businesses can be cumbersome and time-consuming. This is why automation companies are making a move towards pre-built, customizable cloud-based RPA solutions, where a network segment has already been built into the cloud. This way, a client can start using the bots as soon as they start using the cloud.

Web-based RPA also allows for customizable solutions, where customers can choose specific processes to focus on so that bottlenecks can be addressed easily. By maintaining a library of ready-made RPA components, web-based systems can combine a number of automated processes to efficiently automate new processes. This provides a higher degree of personalization without installing an unwieldy system-based RPA solution.


As businesses grow over time, there is often a need for new bots to increase efficiency. By adopting a web-based RPA solution, it is possible to put new bots into service when they need it. Businesses often will not need many bots when they start out, and their needs will increase slowly, but surely with time. It is also possible that certain bots will become obsolete and will need to be phased out. For example, if a certain department shuts down, or service is stopped.

Since the process of upgrading and updating cloud-based systems is a lot easier than system-based bots, a web-based RPA system can be a lot more flexible. It also takes away the need to buy a higher capacity than what is needed when you first install an RPA system.

Lowering costs

Easy customization and flexibility mean that companies can pick and choose what they want to automate. This means lower costs of licensing, and operations. By taking some simple steps to understand and identify what they want to automate, where the technology can be used, and the potential savings, a web-based RPA system can help companies save a lot of money. In a system-based RPA, companies will often have to purchase a lot more licenses than necessary to avoid high installation costs, and increased downtime, the cloud-based system can provide extremely cost-efficient.


The cloud has become ubiquitous. Almost all companies rely heavily on cloud-based solutions for more efficiency. By using robots instead of humans, they can also increase the safety of their operations. The robot’s access rights and scope of work can be clearly defined, so as to minimize any potential problems and minimize human errors.

The ability to scale and replicate cloud services improves the competitiveness of businesses.
