Global robotic process automation (RPA) player Automation Anywhere is on an expansion spree across India and Middle East Asia (IMEA) region. The company plans to open four new offices in India to support its customer and partner growth, according to a statement by the company.

As part of its expansion strategy, Automation Anywhere will strengthen its presence in Bengaluru, Mumbai, and Vadodara as well as open new offices in Delhi, Hyderabad, Chennai, and Pune. Currently, the company has three engineering centers in India – two in Bangalore and one in Baroda. It also plans to open a new product engineering center in Pune by the end of the year to expand research and development capabilities, the statement said.

Besides, the company is planning to double its workforce across IMEA by the end of the current year on the back of an increased adoption of RPA, a technology that helps organizations improve business productivity and increases the number of tasks that can be automated, particularly in banking, financial services, telecommunications, manufacturing, and retail.

“As organizations seek to lower operating costs and improve employee productivity with RPA, India possesses a tremendous business opportunity for our company,” said Ankur Kothari, Chief Revenue Officer and Co-Founder of Automation Anywhere. He further added that the company was building the world’s “most efficient and intuitive end-to-end intelligent RPA platform” and that over the next year it plans to deploy over a million bots to help more companies discover, deploy and scale RPA to drive extraordinary human potential.

According to a report, by 2021, 90 percent of large and midsize organizations will have at least one process supported by RPA and that it has emerged as a $100 billion market opportunity.

For the San Jose-based company, IMEA has led to a 200 percent year-on-year growth with over 3,100 global enterprise brands using its RPA platform.

“With modern enterprises drowning in legacy systems, overloaded with data, and struggling with too many manual processes, RPA has emerged as a business-critical tool for enterprises across multiple segments. Business and technology decision-makers heavily depend on AI-driven RPA technology to augment their processes and thus enable efficient business models that allow enterprises to scale at a much faster pace, said Milan Sheth, Executive Vice President – IMEA Automation Anywhere.

Automation Anywhere’s global customer includes companies in the healthcare, technology, banks and financial services companies, and telecommunications sector.
