Global consulting company, Capgemini Group, has signed a three year collaboration deal with UiPath to expand its Robotic Process Automation (RPA) capabilities.
As part of the agreement, Capgemini will use UiPath’s software to provide advanced automated technology to its business process outsourcing (BPO) clients. The company said the technology can drive process improvement in manual and labour intensive activities in human resources, finance and accounting and supply chain management.
Capgemini senior vice president and head of BPO global delivery network, Jon Bell, said the new collaboration represents an important move in Capgemini’s overall industrialisation strategy.
“The new wave of Robotic Process Automation has significantly increased our ability to drive efficiency, with a heightened level of accuracy resulting in labour intensive back office functions being replaced by advanced technologies. Our global delivery capability coupled with our new collaboration with UiPath will enable us to offer these services and enhanced outcomes to our clients worldwide,” he said.
UiPath chief executive, Daniel Dines, said the relationship is based on a mutual understanding of the value each company brings to the table.
"Capgemini recognises our technology as being next generation – particularly our superior computer vision based automation of applications delivered via Citrix," he said.
“For our part, UiPath is keenly aware of Capgemini’s deep knowledge of business processes, automation implementation and change management. I’m confident this collaboration will set new standards for growth and excellence in the RPA sector.”
The company has also introduced a new Cloud-based solution that aims to accelerate the transformation of telco operating models.
The new hybrid Cloud solution allows telco providers to deploy the Oracle Communications Rapid Offer Design and Order Delivery Solution using Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) combined with pre-built integrations to customer facing Software as a Service (SaaS) components.
The new solution is designed to provide a comprehensive suite of end-to-end business support systems with multiple deployment options including Cloud, hybrid and on-premises. Capgemini said it can enable faster, integrated managed services including order entry and management, billing and catalogue management.
