Built In – by Shreya Desai, EPAM
Forrester estimates that most organizations have automated at least 20 percent of what service desks traditionally did. For some companies, more than 80 percent of “commodity tasks,” or common and easily repeatable tasks, have been automated. Virtually every tech industry has been touched.
At travel agencies, automation might come in the form of online bookings. For the media and gaming industry, automation looks like chatbots to assist with customer service and cloud hosts to support 200 million users. In healthcare, automation tools help with diagnosis assistance and disease care.
EPAM Systems understands the value automation can have on businesses. Since 1993, the company has leveraged its software engineering expertise to assist clients around the world with business and innovation strategy, experience design, technology consulting and product development.
Today, EPAM works with clients to create specific automation tools to propel their business while staying aligned with their company brand. Manager of Intelligent Automation Business Consulting Shreya Desai said EPAM is in the midst of leveraging several tools and technologies, like robotic process automation platform UiPath and intelligent automation solutions platform WorkFusion, to engineer these products.
For clients in need of digital transformation, EPAM’s SolutionsHub is a one-stop shop for software solutions that solve common business challenges with intelligent automation.
