SAN FRANCISCO–Bonitasoft, the largest open source provider of intelligent business process management (BPM), and UiPath, the leading global Robotic Process Automation (RPA) software company, announced a strategic partnership today. In response to growing demand from customers, the two companies will integrate and jointly market their respective solution, empowering customers to transform their businesses by adopting a virtual digital workforce and implementing end-to-end automation.
To gain market advantage in today’s highly competitive landscape, organizations are increasingly seeking solutions to help them expedite operational processes, increase agility and deliver greater value to customers. Strategic digital transformation initiatives create new business opportunities, differentiate companies from their competition and improve customer experiences. With the combination of Bonita and UiPath, enterprises now have a complete solution to manage intelligent automation, as part of an end-to-end process automation that includes exception management and complex decision making by humans.
Repetitive sequences of tasks – such as data validation and cleaning, generation of complex periodic reports, automated email handling and more – can be fully delegated to a virtual digital workforce of software robots. This frees up company employees to focus on more creative and strategic initiatives, also requiring various, appropriate combinations of automation involving systems and humans, to deliver better user experiences.
Bonita’s integration with UiPath’s RPA solution will help customers:
- Reduce operating costs though automation of complex but routine tasks allows employees to focus on innovation initiatives, to generate results – and revenue – sooner;
- Automate back-end processing with a combined approach of RPA (best for systems without APIs) and BPM (appropriate for systems that have APIs);
- Create highly personalized customer experiences by designing and connecting seamless user interfaces, processes and business data;
- Increase customer satisfaction with smoother, faster processes behind applications means customers have a better customer experience.
Miguel Valdes Faura, CEO of Bonitasoft, said, “Bonita and UiPath is an ideal combination for companies undertaking major digital transformation initiatives. Together we provide end-to-end process automation, with Bonita managing the orchestration of adaptable business processes that include a range of activities, in addition to the tasks that UiPath’s RPA is best suited for.”
Both companies share the principles of openness and extensibility of their platform architecture, which is how we are able to integrate our technologies. UiPath’s “Activities” will natively launch Bonita processes; Bonita’s “connectors” will call robots through the UiPath Orchestrator from any step of a process.
“RPA is a perfect complement on the BPM journeys the companies are embarking on to streamline activities, improve internal collaboration and ultimately enhance their customers’ experience. We are excited to kickstart the partnership with Bonitasoft that will deliver significant added value for our mutual customers,” said Anand Nagwani, Vice President EMEA, Partnerships of UiPath.
