New RPA certification and training programs enable business partners to implement hyperautomation for thousands of organizations worldwide
UiPath has announced enhancements to its Business Partner Program to enable organizations around the world to leverage the power of hyperautomation. UiPath is offering new training, certification, and marketing programs for business partners through the launch of its UiPath Services Network (USN).
Forrester predicts that the global COVID-19 pandemic will drive adoption of automation faster than ever before, and that automation will take on “new urgency in the context of business risk and resilience.” The UiPath Hyperautomation Platform is key to scaling automation across the enterprise with speed and efficiency, offering new capabilities that support every phase of the automation lifecycle with added deployment options. UiPath is bringing automation to the masses by enabling employees to both engage in the automation process and benefit from working alongside robots every day.
UiPath global and regional partners are ushering in the workplace of the future driven by hyperautomation for thousands of businesses around the world. UiPath Business Partner Program enhancements enable these partners to scale end-to-end automation for their clients. UiPath has unveiled the following enhancements for its partners:
RPA Certification and Training
The new USN recognizes an elite network of service delivery partners accredited with advanced delivery skills on par with the UiPath Professional Services team. Currently, more than 180 partners are involved in the USN, with over 20 partners certified worldwide. These partners, which have obtained company-level certification and are designated as UiPath Certified Professional Services, offer strong RPA skills, and can provide both customer references and best practices to customers.
With new training and content optimized for partners, UiPath Academy for Partners allows partners to customize their approach to enablement, achieve profitability, and establish differentiation in the market. An evolution of UiPath’s current training site, the new UiPath Academy for Partners was built based on partner feedback and gives individuals a curated learning experience tailored to their specific job role.
The new approach further democratizes access to UiPath training and delivers the same curriculum to both UiPath partner teams and UiPath employees through a user-friendly site. Partners will now be able to access a significantly expanded set of materials, including product training, solution guides, presentation decks, and more. This role-based content enables partners to personalize how they engage and leverage resources with UiPath in order to best meet their needs and to continue winning in the marketplace. The scaled enablement approach means that partners have always-on access to timely, relevant content that grows their expertise and improves their ability to drive business outcomes.
These training additions build on legacy partner programs such as Partner Academy and Reboot Your Skills. Since launching earlier this year, over 6,000 partners participated in Partner Academy and more than 700 partners recently participated in a free, 4-week online learning program called Reboot Your Skills – designed to enable business users to develop essential automation skills in less than 16 hours. The UiPath Business Partner Portal also offers additional selling and technical tools for business partners to sell RPA.
Turn-key Marketing Programs and Partner Locator
UiPath is launching five new turn-key digital marketing programs, which will be available in the Business Partner Portal, to empower business partners to capture demand for RPA. These programs include:
- Automation for a Fast-Changing World (for healthcare organizations)
- Hyperautomation Event-in-a-Box
- It’s Time to Automate
- Promote Your Partnership
- Intro to UiPath & Hyperautomation
Later this year, UiPath will also launch a new Partner Locator to help customers find partners in their geography who have the proper skillsets to help them on their automation journeys.
New Technology Integrations
As UiPath grows its technology partnerships and new native integrations, business partners now have more opportunity to provide services around Oracle, Salesforce, ServiceNow, Workday, and more. Through these integrations, business partners can streamline critical workflows and extend the value of automation across their customers’ businesses.
“The enterprise ecosystem is undergoing a rapid evolution and companies are investing heavily in technologies that enable the digital workplace, such as RPA. As businesses around the world are forced to be more agile due to rapidly changing environments, automation is proving more valuable than ever before,” said Cheryln Chin, VP, Global Partners & Alliances, UiPath. “Through our training, certification, and marketing programs, as well as our technology alliances, we’re making it easier for our business partners, who are on the front lines working with enterprises on their hyperautomation journeys, to plan for and build robots.”
