NEW YORK – July 13, 2020 – UiPath, the leading enterprise Robotic Process Automation (RPA) software company, announced today it has been named a finalist of the Microsoft 2020 Financial Services Partner of the Year Award. The company was honored among a global field of top Microsoft partners for demonstrating excellence in innovation and implementation of customer solutions based on Microsoft technology.
Thomas Hansen, UiPath Chief Revenue Officer, said:
Modernizing financial enterprises face numerous challenges: changing customer behaviors, market disruption, increasing regulations, evolving workforce dynamics, and legacy systems that slow down digital transformation initiatives. We’ve worked diligently with Microsoft to deliver top-notch integrations to our joint customers, adding value in each deployment in days and weeks, not months and years. By using the power of our end-to-end hyperautomation platform across their Microsoft investment, enterprise organizations can dramatically boost individual and enterprise productivity, accelerate digital transformation, and improve employee and customer experiences.
The Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards recognize Microsoft partners that have developed and delivered exceptional Microsoft-based solutions during the past year. Awards were classified in several categories, with honorees chosen from a set of more than 3,300 submitted nominations from more than 100 countries worldwide. UiPath was recognized for providing outstanding solutions and services in Financial Services globally.
