Automation Anywhere to open four new offices in India


BENGALURU, Aug 27: Automation Anywhere, a leader in

robotic process automation (RPA), announced on Tuesday that it

will open four new offices in India to support customer and

partner growth.

The company said it 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 organisations improve business

productivity and increases the number of tasks that can be

automated, particularly in banking, financial services,

telecommunications, manufacturing and retail, it said.

Gartner estimates that by 2021, 90 per cent of large and

midsize organisations would have at least one process

supported by RPA.

According to equity research firm KeyBanc Capital

Markets, RPA has emerged as a USD 100 billion market

opportunity, an Automation Anywhere release said.

As part of its expansion strategy, Automation Anywhere

would strengthen its presence in Bengaluru, Mumbai, and

Vadodara as well as open new offices in Delhi, Hyderabad,

Chennai and Pune, the release said.

Currently, the company has three engineering centres in

India two in Bengaluru and one in Baroda.

It also plans to open a new product engineering centre in

Pune by the end of the year to expand research and development


“As organisations seek to lower operating costs and

improve employee productivity with RPA, India possesses a

tremendous business opportunity for our company,” Chief

Revenue Officer and Co-Founder of Automation Anywhere, Ankur

Kothari said.

“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 the Middle East to help more companies discover,

deploy and scale RPA to drive extraordinary human potential”,

he said.

In IMEA, the company has experienced a growth rate of

approximately 200 per cent year-over-year with now more than

3,100 global enterprise brands using its RPA platform, the

release added. (PTI)
