WalkMe Automation Apps Overview

ActionBot

The WalkMe ActionBot allows your employees and end-users to accomplish tasks by engaging in natural conversations with a bot. ActionBot enhances the customer and employee experience by eliminating confusion, errors, and frustration while helping users complete tasks.

ActionBot consists of a Launcher, a Bot, a Conversation, and an Action (which is actually a Smart Walk-Thru).
