NEW YORK; Dec. 8, 2021 – Accenture (NYSE: ACN) and UiPath (NYSE: PATH), a leading enterprise automation software company, announced an expanded business collaboration to help companies boost the adoption of enterprise-wide automation, accelerate technology transformation efforts and create new growth opportunities.
As businesses reframe their future in a post-pandemic world, organizations that have been able to scale automation across the enterprise are empowering employees to innovate and drive value in new ways. Initially announced at the UiPath FORWARD IV conference in October, Accenture and UiPath are growing their longstanding alliance to combine robust automation solutions from UiPath with Accenture’s complementary services and industry expertise. This will help clients benefit from intelligent automation to increase productivity as well as create a catalyst for the reinvention of business processes to be more efficient and adaptable to change.
Accenture and UiPath have been jointly serving clients around the world, helping support their automation journeys, including at Uber and the University of Chicago Medical Center.
Chad Aronson, global head of Intelligent Automation at Uber, said:
At Uber, it’s about how we can apply technology and innovation to serve our customers. Partnering with UiPath and Accenture enabled us to take advantage of market-leading automation technology from UiPath and the digital and industry expertise of Accenture. This powerful combination has helped Uber achieve unparalleled results in its digital transformation journey to enhance internal operations productivity, quality, performance and user experience.
At the University of Chicago Medical Center, the Accenture team has harnessed the power of the UiPath Intelligent Automation platform to drive innovation and improve employee and patient experiences in this time of a global pandemic. In just six months, UChicago Medicine successfully transitioned from a pilot program to a fully operational Bot Center of Excellence that will run, manage and update robotic process automation initiatives.
Shariq Ata, executive director for Data Analytics, Architecture, Integration and Innovation at the University of Chicago Medical Center, said:
