INDUSTRY.co.id - Singapore, April 20, 2022 - Vietnam’s leading digital transformation services provider FPT Software has unveiled its partnership with SCSK Europe, a subsidiary of the Japan-based system integrator SCSK Corporation. The collaboration affirms FPT Software’s robotic process automation (RPA) expertise and further expands its foothold into European markets.
Applying the “Fast Automation” framework, FPT Software has successfully helped SCSK Europe streamline six internal processes in just four weeks, by deploying its award-winning RPA platform akaBot. FPT Software’s offshore team then provided a comprehensive understanding of RPA’s benefits and armed SCSK employees with the necessary skills and mentality for the upcoming changes with the emergence of digital transformation.
Following their internal success, SCSK Europe introduced FPT Software’s akaBot to their clients in the Chemical and Agriculture industries, replacing 100 percent of the human effort in their data extraction and loan credits approval processes.
"RPA is a powerful tool to resolve the bottleneck in business processes, delivering a much streamlined and efficient workflow. We believe that we can always extend the automation horizons even more by integrating RPA robots with other intelligent technologies,” said Masatoshi Chiba – General Manager, SCSK EU.
“With that expectation in mind, we decided to partner with akaBot, one of the leading vendors in developing hyper-automation solutions from FPT. Since 2018, we have established MOU for the comprehensive partnership to seek to supply a wider range of services and solutions and to expand our operations in the global through this partnership with FPT," Masatoshi Chiba further shared.
According to FPT Software Chief Operating Officer Tran Dang Hoa, the collaboration "paved the way for FPT Software’s expansion in robotic automation and digital transformation in the EU and on a global scale".
"Like SCSK, more and more firms worldwide are adopting RPA and hyper-automation to enhance operations", Tran Dang Hoa said. "As a global top 30 RPA solution provider, we aspire to accompany businesses to overcome pressing challenges, boost their productivity and save costs," he added.
FPT Software and SCSK’s partnership dates back to 2018 when the two cooperated in supporting the overseas expansion of Japanese companies, especially in financial and automotive systems development. Both sides joined forces in providing IT Services and business development through the Asia Pacific operations of major SCSK’s shareholder – Sumitomo Corporation.
First entering the European market in 2008, FPT Software has established seven offices and development centers, and is determined to penetrate further with digital transformation as the key driving force. The global IT firm targeted this strategic area as its first port for capital commitment in the value of 100 million dollars in the upcoming years, with the UK and Germany as two major geographies.
