It was announced today that OpenSky, the Irish GovTech transformation specialist which provides process automated solutions to public sector bodies, has partnered with UiPath, the enterprise Robotic Process Automation (RPA) software company.

Through this strategic partnership, OpenSky will design, develop and implement RPA solutions for public sector bodies and government agencies in Ireland. The deal aims to help reduce operational costs and free up resources, enabling employees to work on more customer-focused and business critical tasks, as opposed to menial jobs. 

OpenSky say the collaborative venture will also help Irish public sector organisations to enhance the citizen experience by making services more accessible via online portals and digital touchpoints which they believe will offer improved responsiveness and better value for the public.

Commenting on the deal, Managing Director at OpenSky, Michael Cronin said, "It’s great to work with such a valuable partner and world leader in terms of RPA. UiPath is helping us to innovate and deliver cutting edge solutions for our clients. We pride ourselves on bringing valuable technology to the market that makes an impact for government organisations, not only for those who work within these organisations but for Irish citizens as well."

VP of Partnerships for EMEA at UiPath, Jan Ursi added, "Via this partnership, we get to witness technology at work bringing more efficiency to the public sector and freeing up critical human resources that can better focus on increasing citizen experience and ultimately channel their efforts on making our cities a better place to live."
