Web Browser Task Automation

Streamline website interaction with automated navigation, input, extraction, and more.

The internet has made doing business faster and easier in countless ways. But even simple website actions—filling out forms, clicking on buttons, downloading files—can be time-consuming and prone to error when part of a repeated business process.

Many enterprises find themselves looking for a tool to automate processes like logging into a site to download files or copying data from a website into a spreadsheet. Their first impulse is usually to write a custom script for the task—a solution that is not reliable, scalable, or cost-effective.

AutoMate’s intuitive drag-and-drop interface lets IT and business users quickly and easily automate browser actions without writing a line of code. Use AutoMate to integrate website interaction with your overarching enterprise automation strategy.

Sample Website Automation Workflow

  1. Log into website
  2. Navigate to form
  3. Enter data into form
  4. Click “Save” button
  5. Log out of site

AutoMate interacts with browsers at the graphical interface level, just like you, and can do almost anything you can do on a website, like click on links, select from a menu, or type into a text box. When you build your processes, three types of actions are available:

  • Browser actions. Includes opening and closing the browser, navigating through pages, and extracting page data.
  • Interactivity actions. Important for automating elements that are not HTML-based, like a "Save As" dialogue or an Adobe Flash element.
  • Input actions. Includes keystrokes, mouse movements, clicks, and copy/paste.
