LONDON – Aug. 14, 2018 – Symphony Ventures, the global leader in enterprise digital transformation, is pleased to announce its partnership with Automation Anywhere, a global leader in Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and AI technologies. Utilizing Symphony’s extensive experience in orchestrating human and digital workforces, this partnership will provide customers across the globe with access to best-of-breed implementation and management services along with industry leading RPA and Intelligent Automation technology. Symphony will also act as a sales agent for Automation Anywhere licenses, and as a specialist able to help firms up-level or accelerate their existing RPA initiatives.
“Symphony has long supported clients using Automation Anywhere,” says Symphony co-founder and CEO David Poole. “We are very excited to formalize our relationship with Automation Anywhere. As the recent announcement of their highly successful Series A funding round indicates, Automation Anywhere is leading the transformation of how people work across the world and we look forward to supporting our global clientele as they deploy, scale and manage their investment in Automation Anywhere RPA solutions.”
In July, Automation Anywhere announced a successful Series A funding round raising $250 million, led by New Enterprise Associates (NEA) and Goldman Sachs Growth Equity with participation from General Atlantic and World Innovation Lab (WiL) – at a valuation of $1.8 billion. Additionally, the firm was recently ranked as the number one RPA product by respected analyst firm HFS Research, in their review of the top ten products in the market. The report compared the products based on user feedback across the dimensions of ability to execute, innovation capability, and voice of the customer.
“We are very pleased to be adding an organization with the pedigree of Symphony to our partner program,” said Anubhav Saxena, Executive VP, Partnerships, Strategy and Operations for Automation Anywhere. “Symphony’s experience and our industry-leading RPA solutions will provide unparalleled value for companies in automating business processes across the enterprise which could not have been automated without robotic process automation.”
“This partnership marks a significant milestone in the development of both firms and a bellwether moment in the maturing RPA industry,” commented Phil Fersht, CEO and Chief Analyst of HFS Research. “Symphony adds streetwise knowledge and experience, honed since the inception of RPA, to Automation Anywhere customers. With Automation Anywhere’s rise to lead the 2018 HFS TOP 10 for RPA products, this completes the enterprise RPA portfolio capability for Symphony.”
Symphony Ventures is now rapidly scaling its Automation Anywhere capabilities with a broad global footprint, spanning India, Poland, the UK, the US and Latin America. Symphony is also working closely with existing Automation Anywhere customers helping perform appraisals and ‘Health Checks’ in supercharging existing programs and laying foundations for explosive digital operations campaigns in 2019 and beyond.
