“We are seeing explosive market growth in Asia Pacific,” said Dr. Jing Bing Zhang, research director and lead analyst, Worldwide Robotics and Asia Pacific Manufacturing Insights, IDC Asia/Pacific. “Industries like banking, insurance and financial services are ripe for the disruption and digital transformation that RPA brings. The level of automation goes beyond streamlining administrative and transactional tasks. Companies deploying RPA technologies are reaping huge benefits of faster response, better services and enhanced customer experiences and loyalty.”
“Avanade partners with Blue Prism because of their scalable and robust execution platform for best-of-breed RPA technologies that we know will provide value for our clients,” said Yutaka Anma, general manager, Avanade Japan. “For example, we are working with the Williams Martini Racing Formula One team to help them leverage the technology/partnership to see how RPA can support in the automation of their IT help desk processes. The solution allows them to be responsive and agile, enabling their technology teams to focus on high value, high skill areas. It ultimately helps Williams to perform better on and off the track.”
“Working with Blue Prism demonstrates EY’s commitment to teaming with leaders in disruptive technologies to deliver high-impact, transformative services to our clients,” said Dan Higgins, EY Global technology consulting leader. “In March, Blue Prism recognized EY with its Gold certification– Blue Prism’s highest accreditation for excellence in delivery of RPA to enterprises.
