SDLC Partners, L.P. has launched a new lab focused on Robotic Process Automation (RPA). This new lab is part of their growth strategy bringing the latest technologies showing efficacy for cutting costs, increasing operational efficiencies, and improving customer experiences.

Robotic process automation technology uses artificial intelligence to execute repetitive, rules-based, and back-end tasking. And, according to a 2017 report by the Everest Group, is on the cusp of experiencing “explosive” growth. Their report indicates that, in 2016, the RPA market grew 64 percent to $200 million and expected to grow another 70 to 90 percent by 2018.

“The RPA Lab will bring a team of engineers and architects certified in the most prominent platforms on the market based on Gartner data. We have identified several excellent RPA client candidates who want to streamline their repeatable, high-volume processes for maximum accuracy and efficiency.” said Chris Simchick, co-founder and CEO of SDLC Partners.

Paul Taylor, Service Line Lead overseeing the RPA Lab added, “The time has come to use RPA to dramatically cut costs and deliver ROI to those areas of an organization that are hard to make more efficient. Our lean startup approach to RPA makes it a straightforward journey to realizing those benefits.”

The RPA Lab is the first in a series of service teams focused on key technologies, like artificial intelligence, that show measurable, positive potential for organizations across industries like healthcare, banking, retail and pharmaceuticals.
