Earlier this month, robotic process automation (RPA) services firm Symphony Ventures received certification from UiPath to conduct formal training for those in the industry looking to implement the U.K. company’s bots and automation software.
Symphony Ventures, which has its headquarters in London, is now one of the RPA provider’s first “Official Training Partners,” building upon the “implementation partnership” that the two firms had already established.
The goal of the arrangement is to devote more resources to helping companies develop their own in-house RPA experts and comes in response to increased demand in the marketplace, according to Symphony Ventures.
This industry growth was on display earlier this month when UiPath secured $153 million in a series B funding round that was led by Accel. The firm has been staffing up and looking toward expansion since completing the round, which had an investor list including Alphabet investment fund CapitalG, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, Earlybird Digital East Fund, Credo Ventures, and Seedcamp.
“With the automation market booming and demand for our software higher than ever, we couldn’t be more excited to have Symphony Ventures on board as an official training partner,” said Ana Cinca, customer and partner success chief deputy officer at UiPath.
Symphony Ventures also maintains a close partnership with U.K.-based Blue Prism, another leading RPA provider. It was recently named as a Blue Prism’s “gold capability provider” partner, which recognizes the firm’s experience in overseeing RPA implementation and providing consultation for third-party companies.
