Site in Heerlen will serve clients in Germany, Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg
To meet the rapidly growing demand for automation in business, Accenture has developed a robotic process automation (RPA) Centre of Excellence based in Heerlen, Netherlands, specializing in the Automation Anywhere platform. Automation Anywhere is the largest enterprise software provider in robotic process automation (RPA).
The delivery centre will provide end-to-end RPA solutions to Accenture clients in the region across multiple sectors and industries. This includes RPA awareness workshops, process discovery, implementation, training, run support and vision definition.
Many clients are looking to rapidly scale up their existing RPA deployments, to take advantage of the efficiency and productivity gains available. The Centre of Excellence (COE) will help enable that through Accenture’s defined methodology and Automation Anywhere’s platform, which has already supported many large RPA deployments to date.
Because of the central location in the south of the Netherlands, the Centre of Excellence supports four countries (NL, DE, BE and LUX) in their own languages.
- Over 50 Automation Anywhere certified experts have been trained to date, expected to significantly increase by the end of 2018
- 200+ client business processes have been robotized
- 20 clients have benefitted from RPA to date
Anubhav Saxena, Executive Vice President, Partnerships, Strategy and Operations at Automation Anywhere, said: “Accenture is an important partner of ours across the globe and we’re excited to see their dedication to providing a structured way for clients to start and scale with the industry’s leading Intelligent Digital Workforce platform. The Accenture COE provides a centralized vision and all the necessary components for clients to succeed with RPA.”
Willem van Zuijlen, Head of the Centre of Excellence at Accenture, said: “Our vision for the Centre of Excellence is to extend and expand our skills in RPA and to combine them with rapidly evolving AI solutions. We believe the Automation Anywhere platform is very well placed to execute our vision. This will empower our clients to get maximum added value on their journey to create an intelligent enterprise.”
