India is the second-largest market for Automation Anywhere
Leading Robotic Process Automation (RPA) vendor, Automation Anywhere has announced its expansion into India with the opening of four new offices in India to support customer and partner growth.
The SoftBank-backed company also plans to double its workforce across IMEA (India, the Middle East, Africa) by the end of the current year.
The expansion plan is a result of the increased adoption of RPA, a technology that helps organizations improve business productivity and increases the number of tasks that can be automated, particularly in banking, financial services, telecommunications, manufacturing and retail.
As part of its expansion strategy, Automation Anywhere will strengthen its presence in Bengaluru, Mumbai, and Vadodara as well as open new offices in Delhi, Hyderabad, Chennai and Pune.
Currently, the company has three engineering centers in India – two in Bangalore and one in Baroda. It also plans to open a new product engineering center in Pune by the end of the year to expand research and development capabilities.
“As organizations seek to lower operating costs and improve employee productivity with RPA, India possesses a tremendous business opportunity for our company,” said Ankur Kothari, chief revenue officer and co-founder of Automation Anywhere.
“We are building the world’s most efficient and intuitive end-to-end intelligent RPA platform, and over the next year, we anticipate deploying more than one million bots across India and Middle east to help more companies discover, deploy and scale RPA to drive extraordinary human potential,” he added.
Gartner estimates that by 2021, 90 per cent of large and midsize organisations would have at least one process supported by RPA. KeyBanc Capital Markets, equity research firm, says RPA has emerged as a USD 100 billion market opportunity.
In addition to expanding its presence in the region, Automation Anywhere has also:
