Automation Software Company Earns Distinction through Demonstrated Technology Success and Customer Commitment

Automation Anywhere Inc., an industry-leading provider of business process automation software, today announced it has achieved a Gold Independent Software Vendor (ISV) Competency in the Microsoft Partner Network, demonstrating its ability to meet Microsoft customers' evolving needs in today's dynamic business environment.

To earn a Microsoft Gold Competency, organizations must complete a rigorous set of tests to prove their level of technology expertise, have the right number of Microsoft Certified Professionals, submit customer references and demonstrate their commitment to customer satisfaction by participating in an annual survey.

Automation Anywhere helps companies automate complex processes, ERP processes, and critical day-to-day business processes—with no programming required. All ERP packages, like Microsoft Dynamics, are enhanced using Automation Anywhere. Many end-to-end ERP processes, such as entering sales data, purchase order data, or running reports, can be made more flexible, complete, and integrated using Automation Anywhere—making the end user experience significantly better.

"We are absolutely delighted to announce this achievement. A Gold ISV Competency differentiates us from the competition and establishes us as market leaders, further demonstrating our commitment to serving the needs of customers relying on Microsoft-based solutions," said Mihir Shukla, Automation Anywhere CEO. "Combining our automation solution with the power of products like Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Office, and Microsoft Dynamics brings more value to the customer. The ability of Automation Anywhere 7.0 Enterprise to leverage the business potential of solutions from Microsoft further helps our customers and makes their business processes more productive, secure, and efficient."

As a result of this partnership, Automation Anywhere 7.0 Enterprise now provides customers with a complete solution for moving data to and from Microsoft Office applications like Excel or Access. The solution provides complete, centralized control over all automation processes, enables management of hundreds of users, and allows hundreds of processes to be scheduled and launched at once. "The Microsoft platform is critical for every business," says Shukla, "and because the majority of business users are running their operations on the Microsoft platform, they often need their business processes to connect to web applications and legacy systems, such as a mainframe. This is now possible and seamless." Automation Anywhere's business process automation solution can be found on the Microsoft Pinpoint partner web site.

"The Microsoft Partner Network is designed to empower solution providers to succeed in today's business environment. By achieving the prestigious Gold competency, participating companies are provided with a rich set of benefits, including increased customer visibility through branding and accessibility, training and support," said Jon Roskill, Corporate Vice President, Worldwide Partner Group at Microsoft Corp. "We are proud to put forth a program that provides the right resources to help a company develop the expertise customers demand in today's competitive market and also provides the community and infrastructure that can connect them to one another, lowering costs for all parties."
