What is a Bot?

For the non-techie, think of a bot as a robot in your computer that automates things. There are many different types of Bots: there are chatbots, voice bots, search bots and many bad bots. Frakture bots specialize in automating highly repetitive routine data jobs such as downloading a transaction file, sorting, filtering and appending source codes. Bots are good at data jobs, but they are not good at jobs that require a human brain. We are often asked, “Can a Bot get a specific piece of data out of a system?” We respond, “If a human can get it, a bot can get it.” Bots are not magic, but can seem that way because of the efficiency they bring to your work. Frakture’s Bots specialize in people, transaction and messaging data.
