Expleo partners with global firm UiPath on Robotic Process Automation technology

  • Local tech innovation firm Expleo has announced a new partnership with UiPath, a global provider of Robotic Process Automation solutions

    The disruption caused by Covid-19 has exposed some serious problems with how companies have approached digital transformation in recent years. A lot of processes that could be automated are still being done by hand, and the combination of sick employees and security issues from working from home has caused problems.

    Expleo and UiPath have now joined forces to attempt to solve this problem, offering robust automation solutions that it hopes will improve productivity and reduce the burden of administrative tasks. This follows the recent opening of Expleo’s new Irish Centre of Excellence for process automation, and forms part of the company's ambitious expansion plans.

    UiPath works with enterprise customers to automate mundane tasks using robotics, artificial intelligence, and machine learning. It has over 6,000 enterprise customers and has gained a following of over 750,000 automation enthusiasts, giving it significant market presence in the digital transformation sector.

    Rebecca Keenan, Head of Process Automation, Expleo, commented: "At Expleo, our mission is to help businesses harness technological change to successfully deliver innovation. This new strategic partnership with UiPath is a natural next step, as it allows us to scale further and deliver our clients a combined, unmatched capability for automation, robotics and AI."

    Siobhán Ryan, Sales Director, UiPath, said: "We believe that there’s a huge opportunity for organisations to reap the full benefits of RPA in this rapidly changing world. We are looking to grow our presence and market share, and so Expleo’s extensive reach and sector knowledge will help us to achieve our goals. It’s fantastic to have such an ambitious partner with such a strong reputation and footprint."
