Imagine having to fill out a form that has 12 different fields like name, age, location, website, photo, etc. Now, envision doing this 5740 times, each time with a different data set. How would you tackle such a big and boring task?
The Frustration of Manual Form Filling 😵
Would you opt to do it manually, working a grueling 15-hour day without a break on weekends? Sure, it might be doable, and you could successfully complete it in six days. However, the trade-offs include back pain, decreased eyesight, and possibly carpal tunnel syndrome, a common hand issue for those who overuse computers.
The Downsides of Outsourcing 👎
Another option is to seek inexpensive labor and pay someone to handle the task. The drawbacks? It's still going to take days, and the quality can't be guaranteed because cheap and quality seldom go hand in hand. Even if you pay well, we humans are inherently prone to errors. Ending up with 4.7% of poorly filled forms isn't an ideal outcome.
The Right Way 👍
The third and arguably the best approach is to automate this process. Let the robot take charge. It's faster, more cost-effective, has a lower chance for errors, and, most importantly, robots don't take breaks. They never get bored or tired.
But I Can't Code! 😑
You might be wondering how to automate this without coding. Perhaps you lack coding skills, or you simply don't have the time to write extensive scripts, set up coding environments, and deal with other technicalities. And, of course, you don't want to invest time in hiring, explaining, waiting, and testing—an endeavor that consumes both time and money.
The Best Way 🎯
So, what's the solution, you ask? It's no-code web automation. Yes, you can create automation or a bot without writing a single line of code. Does such a thing exist? Absolutely. There are few tools that offer this capability, but today, we'll focus on our tool called Automatio.
