Talan aims to certify 100 UiPath consultants by the end of the year

Talan aims to certify 100 UiPath consultants by the end of the year to become the central player in the deployment of RPA (Robotic Process Automation) projects.

Talan, a leading player in business transformation, and UiPath, world leader in enterprise robotic process automation (RPA) platforms, have announced a partnership to extend RPA and IPA (Intelligent Process Automation) to all business sectors.

The market for robotic process automation will be worth $1.3 billion in 2019, according to Gartner. It is being increasingly used in companies and affects all areas of businesses, not just IT departments. The recent integration of artificial intelligence features, and therefore learning capabilities, into automation processes is opening up new opportunities for companies.

UiPath, which recently raised $568 million, dominates the "Automation First" market with an internationally recognized platform that allows robots to learn new skills through artificial intelligence and machine learning.

Talan supports the transformation of large groups in the energy, banking and insurance, manufacturing, transport and telecommunications sectors. With its business and technological expertise, Talan advises, designs and implements its clients' projects. The performance of the UiPath platform, combined with Talan's influence and business expertise, will enable the two players to offer an RPA solution adapted to each company, regardless of the business sector.

At the origin of this partnership lies a shared desire to support companies in this new transformation which the automation of certain tasks implies, and to simplify processes so that businesses can focus on value-added tasks.

Philippe Cassoulat, Talan's Managing Director, said "We are convinced that robotic process automation is going to become indispensable for companies. UiPath, by its very DNA and exceptional growth, is the ideal partner to develop our RPA / IPA offer. We aim to become the leading expert on the subject, notably thanks to the certification of 100 consultants by the end of the year."

Eric Adrian, Managing Director of UiPath for France, said "The partners play a decisive role in UiPath's long-term success and in its status as market leader in RPA and AI. They will continue to play a key role in supporting us in our mission to bring organizations together around our Automation First mindset. We are very happy to welcome Talan, which shares our values. As a business partner, Talan will assist its customers in their digital transformation with qualified teams trained in our solutions."

This partnership has already enabled the implementation of a large-scale RPA project for an investment bank.
