Chantilly, Va., Dec. 5, 2019—Perspecta Inc. (NYSE: PRSP), a leading U.S. government services provider, announced that it received the 2019 UiPath Partner of the Year Award in the public sector category at Partner FORWARD, which was held in October in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The 2019 UiPath Partner of the Year Awards are designed to celebrate organizations that are accelerating the automation era with robotics process automation (RPA)—technology that automates repetitive tasks, which can decrease human errors and improve productivity, customer experience and job satisfaction.
Perspecta was chosen for Impact Partner of the Year in the public sector category. The company applies RPA as a central element of its digital delivery capability, leading the charge for secure, scalable automation in all areas of the U.S. federal, state and local marketplace. Perspecta is a strong advocate of the benefits of the UiPath RPA platform and the creation of their internal RPA center of excellence provides easy access to a skilled workforce of certified experts that accelerate rapid prototyping and development of use cases that can be brought to market quickly and securely.
“At Perspecta we pride ourselves on bringing bold and innovative ideas to our customers every day so they can work smarter and faster,” said Mike Kirkland, senior vice president, offerings and solution development, Perspecta. “Leveraging emerging technologies like the UiPath RPA platform is one way we’re doing just that—helping customers across federal, state and local government maximize the beneficial impact of tremendous cost saving, improved service delivery, and employee satisfaction resulting from redeployment to higher value functions.”
“UiPath has a tremendous opportunity to help the federal government solve both of its top workforce challenges – preparing for the impending retirement tsunami and attracting millennials,” said Chris Townsend, vice president of Federal Sales at UiPath. “Partners like Perspecta are fundamental to our business strategy in this area, and we’re excited to honor them as a winner of this year’s Partner of the Year awards. Through the adoption of RPA, government can improve the productivity, efficiency and job satisfaction of its employees, which is critical as it tries to both position itself as an innovative employer and prepare for a shrinking workforce.”
