UiPath announced today that it has partnered with Sofigate, the leader of IT Management in the Nordics and pioneer of Business Technology management in Northern Europe, to help customers fast-track their digital transformation journeys.
Kickstarted last year in autumn, the partnership leverages the UiPath RPA platform onto Sofigate’s new Process Automation Cloud Solution. The two companies are now introducing a new cloud-based solution to automate their customers’ rules-based repetitive manual processes, utilising UiPath’s Orchestrator and Robot capabilities. RaaS Process Automation leverages the RPA technology which helps economically and rapidly automate tedious rules-based business tasks that were so far done by employees.
By partnering with UiPath, Sofigate will enable its clients to automate a number of business and support processes ranging from processes ran by IT, HR, Finance, Sales and other back-office departments to processes primarily intended for business purposes. By delegating these processes to a virtual digital workforce of software robots, company employees will be able to focus on more strategic, creative and customer-facing initiatives.
Skanska Finland, one business unit of world leading project development and construction group Skanska, is one of Sofigate’s new customers in this area. Skanska Finland is using the joint RPA solution to automate their business support processes such as Financial Management.
Pekka Mutikainen, Skanska’s CIO in Finland, said:
One of our corporate strategic objectives is towards better operational efficiency. Raising level of digitalisation and automation in our operations is an important tool to reach this objective. There is a huge potential for us to utilise new technologies such as robotics to automate some of our daily business support operations. As we have good experiences leveraging cloud solutions for business use, Sofigate’s cloud-based RPA solution was a natural choice to us.
Jussi Vuokko, business responsible of the Automation and Robotics, said:
We wanted to collaborate with market leader in RPA technology and thus our natural technology selection was UiPath. With RaaS Process Automation organisations can resource their technology-related business functions more effectively and gain the benefits from introducing the automation in very short lead time.
Anand Nagwani, UiPath Vice President, EMEA, Partnerships, has declared:
For many people in the work field today, administration processes are diminishing productivity and carving out from the time spent in strategic tasks. As a result we have seen Robotic Process Automation gaining lots of traction in the market with successful deployments across industries. We are happy to collaborate with Sofigate, a leader in the Business Technology space. Our integrated solution will help customers’ fast track towards automation and deliver indisputable benefits.
