WorkFusion and NEC Partner to Bring AI-driven Robotic Process Automation to Global Markets
Partnership will accelerate the adoption and deployment of AI-driven RPA throughout the world.

TOKYO, June 5, 2019 - (JCN Newswire) - WorkFusion, the leading intelligent automation and robotic process automation (RPA) software company, and NEC Corporation, a leader in the integration of IT and network technologies, today announced a partnership to bring artificial intelligence-driven RPA to global markets. With demand for automation and intelligence growing at an increasingly rapid pace in Japan specifically, this partnership will enable unprecedented adoption and deployment of AI-driven RPA throughout the region.

In April 2019, Japan began implementing work style reform legislation designed to improve the productivity and well-being of workers. To adapt to this change and address the needs of a highly-skilled workforce, many organizations are exploring automation and AI to minimize the burden of repetitive work on employees and allow them to focus on value-added projects and initiatives.

Through this partnership, NEC will bring WorkFusion to customers around the world, beginning immediately in the Japanese market, where NEC will resell WorkFusion, providing solutions services and support to customers that are evolving their use of automation to adapt to the shifting labor laws and workforce.

To kick off the partnership, WorkFusion collaborated with NEC Management Partner (NMP), NEC's shared services organization, to develop expert cognitive bots that address specific finance and accounting processes that are unique to Japan.

The deployment of WorkFusion's AI-driven RPA automated a range of manual processes that were too challenging for NMP's existing work process management. This was accomplished by using WorkFusion Intelligent Automation Cloud software to implement business tasks in cooperation with NMP staff, which enabled the software's machine learning to become familiar with a wide range of tasks. As a result, the software became able to independently carry out more tasks, which promoted the enhancement of productivity and customer service.

"We designed our platform with intelligence and analytics at the core, which allows businesses to overcome the challenges faced not only with manual repetitive work but with legacy RPA technologies, and deliver true business value," said Alex Lyashok, CEO of WorkFusion. "We're thrilled to work hand in hand with NEC to help businesses in Japan and throughout the world experience the transformative power of AI-driven RPA as they work to adapt to a changing workforce."

"WorkFusion is uniquely qualified to address the automation needs of customers with its AI-driven RPA technology," said Kazunori Sudo, Senior Vice President of the AI Platform Division at NEC Corporation. "WorkFusion has established itself as the gold standard in the industry, and we're excited about working together to help customers experience the next evolution in automation and intelligence."
