Automation Anywhere has dedicated the last decade to drive the adoption of robotic process automation technology in leading Financial Services, Healthcare, Technology, and Insurance companies—to name a few—across more than 90 countries. According to the company, “our intelligent process robots transform the way businesses operate, delivering complex business and IT work across a range of processes including procure-to-pay, quote-to-cash, HR administration, claims processing, and thousands of other front and back office processes.”

Their motto is to take the robot out of the human. As such, they aim to liberate employees from mundane, repetitive tasks, allowing them more time to use their intellect and creativity to solve higher order business challenges. They see a world where every employee will work side by side with digital workers, making them exponentially more productive and far more fulfilled.
