Publicis.Sapient Partners with Leading RPA Firm UiPath, Enabling Business Transformation Through Reduced Integration Overheads, Rapid ROI and Elimination of Manual Processes
part of Publicis Groupe [Euronext Paris: FR0000130577, CAC40] and the
world's most advanced digital transformation company, today announced a
new partnership with leading robotic process automation (RPA) provider UiPath.
With decades of mergers, acquisitions and IT investments, and siloed
infrastructures, firms are struggling to evolve their operations to
become more client-centric and react to rapidly changing market forces,
driven by new technologies, enhanced client and consumer expectations.
Numerous challenges have emerged, including incomplete upstream data
feeds and a lack of interoperability between core systems, leading to
multiple workarounds and manual processes that increase cost and risk of
error. As a result, firms dedicate significant amounts of labor to
perform repetitive, rule-based efforts, such as managing exceptions.
As multiple industries transition to a digital world, RPA will become an
inherent part of any digital roadmap. Publicis.Sapient's consulting,
technology and industry knowledge will enable these firms to transform
their operations by implementing and deploying UiPath's proven
end-to-end, intelligent automation platform.
UiPath's RPA platform automates repetitive duties through a
business-owned, IT-supported digital workforce that allows operations
staff to be re-focused on more strategic and value-added tasks.
Publicis.Sapient's methodology for RPA delivers market-leading results,
including time to business value, transparency into KPIs for business
executives, security, manageability and architectural integration for
CIOs. This helps each client fully realize the efficiency and cost
benefits that highly scalable, robotic workforces automating manual
process and workflows can deliver.
The collaboration has already seen successful implementations for
processing and managing unstructured data for financial services and
eergy firms, including large integrated oil majors to midstream and
fuel retailers. The two firms have also delivered a logistics
project using RPA to reduce the time taken to perform tasks and improve
safety through regular, automated audits.
"RPA is becoming a major enterprise enabler in improving the
efficiency and effectiveness of an organization's operations and service
delivery, and as a foundation for digital transformation. We are excited
to partner with UiPath to offer intelligent automation capabilities to
our clients," commented Rashed Haq, global lead for AI, Data and
Robotics, at Publicis.Sapient. "Where the application of RPA becomes
interesting is when it is combined with more advanced, cognitive
artificial intelligence tools to deliver intelligent process automation.
We are developing these tools to deliver processes with pre-programmed
functions, offering the potential to make autonomous decisions using a
sophisticated rules engine based on learning algorithms."
"We've seen RPA drive significant process improvements for
organizations in the financial services, energy and commodities
sectors," said Ashim Gupta, chief customer success officer, UiPath. "By
taking on time-intensive tasks, like data entry, RPA empowers
organizations to more effectively tackle operations - driving faster,
better decisions that support their core missions. Through our
partnership with Publicis.Sapient, we are positioned to help more
organizations utilize RPA to digitally transform and operate in a more
strategic, sophisticated way."
