Thu, 14th Mar 2024

Ashling Partners, an intelligent automation service provider and global partner of UiPath is expanding its presence in the Asia Pacific region with a focus on the Australian market. The firm is set to establish an automation centre of excellence in Australia, targeting the nation's untapped automation potential.

The company, which has offices in the United States, Europe, and Asia, has opened an office in Melbourne. From this location, it will collaborate with UiPath to enhance the automation journey of organisations in various sectors, including finance, manufacturing and distribution, and healthcare.

Lee Hawksley, President of Asia Pacific and Japan at UiPath, expressed his excitement about this expansion, stating, "We're excited to expand our partnership with Ashling Partners in the region with the prospect of helping more Australian companies and others across Asia Pacific to achieve cost savings and productivity improvements through automation. The combination of Ashling Partners' knowledge and expertise, and the leading UiPath Business Automation Platform offers companies in the Asia Pacific region greater opportunities for meaningful digital transformation."

Benjamin Lingard, Country Head of Ashling Partners Australia, described Australia as the perfect commercial centre for the Asia Pacific region. Lingard said, "Australia is ripe for leveraging the true potential of automation because it offers a talented workforce and a market that has always been an early adopter of technologies like AI and automation. It is the ideal commercial centre for Asia Pacific and Japan because it aligns with Ashling Partners' core values and is a great client service hub as we continue to grow our delivery centres in India and beyond."

Among the leading Australian organisations engaging Ashling Partners' services and the UiPath solution is the iconic Arnotts Group. Sean McLintock, Chief Digital & Technology Officer, The Arnotts Group, recognised the benefits of their investment in automation. He said, "The investment that companies such as UiPath and Ashling Partners are making in Australia is paying off in the advanced business outcomes that are being achieved through AI-powered automation. Automation is one of three strategic pillars for The Arnotts Group, and we see it as a critical enabler to the company's future growth."

Ashling Partners has been partnering successfully with UiPath over the past seven years. Their commitment and expertise in bringing AI-powered automation to life have not gone unnoticed. They were recently recognised at UiPath's flagship user conference, FORWARD VI, for the second consecutive year. This acknowledgement underscores Ashling Partners' ongoing commitment to helping clients build robust companies with innovative customer service through automation, a vision aligned with UiPath's global partner programme.
