Just six weeks after it secured a $160 million Series C funding round, Chinese RPA technology provider Laiye announced it has partnered with global IT services provider Accenture. Under the agreement, Accenture will make Laiye one of the RPA providers it offers clients as the company continues to expand beyond Asia.
While Laiye has recently focused on expansion in Europe, the companies said a strategic deal with Accenture will provide more opportunity in North and South America.
“Laiye has made great strides in expanding its success around the world and enhancing its capabilities,” said Alejandro Arboleda, vice president at Laiye North America. “This partnership in the Americas will allow Laiye’s customers to implement our suite of IA tools and Accenture’s cloud expertise and solutions, reflecting our continued and mutual commitment to delivering business excellence for our clients.”
Almost exactly one year ago, the Beijing, China-based RPA technology provider named Ronen Lamdan as its international CEO to oversee global expansion. Lamdan was charged with building a global team to grow beyond China.
