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

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."
