UiPath, the leading robotic process automation (RPA) enterprise software company, is working with key influencers to develop greater collaboration between technology, government and the tech industry. The company is now a member of the techUK Public Services Board (PSB) – which leads the techUK campaign for better public services through better technology.
As the techUK leadership forum for public sector work, the PSB sets and prioritises the agenda for promoting and maximising the tech industry’s contribution to the delivery of world-class, affordable public services. The organisation aims to improve the engagement between government and the tech industry; provides leadership on critical policy issues related to public services transformation; and leads the debate on the use of innovative technologies. All this is to drive efficiencies for the benefit of front-line public servants, taxpayers and UK citizens and communities. It drives progress towards tech-enabled public service transformation in four priority areas:
- Skills and diversity
- Data sharing in the public sector
- Commercial procurement
Ian McGregor, Vice President UK Public Sector at UiPath, said:
It is a privilege to join the techUK Public Services Board, and to champion together a better use of disruptive technologies that transform our public services. The PSB priority areas are also ours at UiPath. We want to increase the tech industry’s contribution to the delivery of world-class, affordable public services, that better serve our communities.
Jacqueline de Rojas CBE, President of techUK, commented:
We’re excited to welcome UiPath to our Public Sector Board, and work with them on wide-ranging challenges that techUK’s public sector programmes are addressing.
The PSB meets 10 times a year, involving the highest members of government, including representatives from the Ministry of Defence (MOD).
This membership represents further advancement for UiPath – which scooped up four industry awards in June and July and, in April 2019, announced a huge increase in company valuation to $7 billion.
UiPath is leading the “automation first” era – championing one robot for every person, delivering free and open training and collaboration, and enabling robots to learn new skills through AI and machine learning. Led by a commitment to bring digital era skills to more than a million people, the company’s enterprise Robotic Process Automation (RPA) platform has already automated millions of repetitive, mind-numbing tasks for business and government organisations all over the world, improving productivity, customer experience, and employee job satisfaction.
Recently named by Comparably as the 6th happiest place to work and the 11th best company culture among large businesses, UiPath is one of the fastest growing and highest-valued AI enterprise software companies worldwide.
