London – Capgemini, one of the world’s foremost providers of consulting, technology and outsourcing services, has announced its collaboration with UiPath, a specialist automation software company, to expand its Robotic Process Automation capabilities. The agreement will see Capgemini use UiPath’s software to provide advanced automated technology to its BPO clients globally, to help drive more effective business outcomes and greater business benefits.
Capgemini has been operating in the area of Robotic Process Automation for a number of multinational organisations in a wide range of areas including automated data entry, file and data manipulation, automated formatting, and multi-format message creation. Capgemini’s collaboration with UiPath is an illustration of its commitment to and investment in advanced tools to enhance its BPO offerings and generate greater business benefits for its clients worldwide.
Robotic Process Automation (RPA) has revolutionised the way companies have started operating their BPO services by allowing business users to simplify, accelerate and improve the accuracy of manual and repetitive tasks. With UiPath automation software, Capgemini is able to drive process improvement to the next level, especially around manual and labour intensive activities in functions such as HR, Finance and Accounting and Supply Chain management. The new collaboration reinforces the continued investment in RPA as a key element of the automation portfolio employed by Capgemini’s BPO Global Delivery Network. It also represents an important move in Capgemini’s overall industrialisation strategy, a key element of which is the deployment of automation solutions across the entire range of managed services.
Jon Bell, Senior VP and head of Capgemini’s BPO Global Delivery Network said, “The new wave of Robotic Process Automation offerings has significantly increased our ability to drive efficiency, with a heightened level of accuracy resulting in labour intensive back office functions being replaced by advanced technologies. Our global delivery capability coupled with our new collaboration with UiPath will enable us to offer these services and enhanced outcomes to our clients worldwide.”
Daniel Dines, CEO of UiPath said, “We’re pleased to work with Capgemini in the burgeoning field of Robotic Process Automation. This relationship is based on a mutual understanding of the value each company brings to the table. Capgemini recognises our technology as being next generation – particularly our superior computer vision based automation of applications delivered via Citrix. For our part, UiPath is keenly aware of Capgemini’s deep knowledge of business processes, automation implementation and change management. I’m confident this collaboration will set new standards for growth and excellence in the RPA sector.”
