NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- UiPath, the leading enterprise Robotic Process Automation (RPA) software company, today announced an integration with Box, the leading cloud content management platform. Leveraging the companies’ deep and dynamic integration to automate processes that involve file and folders in Box with the UiPath Platform for Hyperautomation, UiPath with Box makes it easy for users and teams to not only design robots that search, read, and update Box files, but also more easily automate any process that relies on files, data, or documents in Box.

Automation is helping organizations around the world become faster and more agile in the face of increased demand and rapidly changing environments. The UiPath Platform removes mundane work so users can focus on what matters most. With this integration, UiPath with Box are enabling users and teams to increase productivity, accelerate digital transformation, and simplify the automation of critical business processes – making their lives at work simple, easy, and convenient.

Specifically, the UiPath Activity for Box helps users improve productivity at scale and get faster results at scale:

  • Easy design: Drag and drop activities directly into automation workflows in UiPath Studio, a tool that can model an organization’s business processes in a visual way, to easily design robots that work with Box files and folders, allowing users to launch automations faster.
  • Rapid time-to-value: The UiPath Activity for Box gives customers the ability to automate interactions with files and folders in Box using publicly-supported APIs. Automations are not dependent on a web browser or the Box user interface, resulting in faster implementation and quicker ROI.
  • Ensured Security: The UiPath integration with Box complies with all Box security policies, practices, and governance standards.

“The need for organizations to move fast and operate in a modern way is more important than ever before,” said Varun Parmer, Chief Product Officer at Box. “The RPA industry requires the most advanced enterprise-grade collaboration tools, and we’re excited to provide UiPath customers with the ability to extend automation across and beyond the enterprise.”

Dhruv Asher, UiPath’s senior vice president of business development and product alliances, commented: “As this interest in accelerated processes amongst organizations continues to grow, our integration with Box enables enterprise organizations to easily begin their RPA journey, successfully mature and scale their automation initiatives, and refocus their workforce on business transformation.”
