Autodesk Taps UiPath to Support Finance Digitization Strategy

Software titan leverages RPA across multiple finance departments and uses in initial roll-out, with plans to scale UiPath’s technology enterprise-wide

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Autodesk has selected UiPath, the leading enterprise Robotic Process Automation (RPA) platform, to assist with the digitization of the company. Since deploying RPA in April, Autodesk has identified more than 100 processes and begun automating several in its finance department – driving significant efficiencies and greater innovation. As the company continues to evolve its use of automation, Autodesk will apply UiPath’s RPA solution across departments to maximize overall business performance.

“At Autodesk, we want our customers to have a frictionless experience accessing and using our technology,” said Scott Herren, CFO at Autodesk. “UiPath’s solutions bring us tremendous value in enhancing our operations and furthering our digitization strategy as a company. Most importantly, the tools help us do our jobs more effectively, so we can focus on the best experience for our customers.”

Autodesk uses UiPath’s RPA solution to enhance processes including:

  • Credit checks: UiPath’s solution accelerates time spent handling inbound credit applications, which gives customers more immediate access to Autodesk products. Robots are able to handle 80 percent of the orders without intervention – meaning faster checking processes – and are programmed to alert sales teams if there is an issue with an application. Sales teams can now follow up with the customer immediately to rectify issues, whereas in the past this process would have taken days.
  • Payroll processing: For the APAC payroll team, UiPath robots have eliminated mundane tasks such as reformatting and uploading payroll files thus saving the team significant time and enabling them to focus on more complex issues.

“We’re excited the Autodesk team is benefiting from our technology,” said Ashim Gupta, chief customer success officer, UiPath. “Our platform is meant to help companies focus on what they do best – bringing supreme products to market and delighting customers – and we’re glad to see Autodesk doing just that. As the company continues to digitize its business, we expect their results will only get better.”
