AI provider LAIYE and IAC join forces in EMEA intelligent automation market

Neil Parker of Laiye

London, UK & Paris, France. 19th January 2022 – LAIYE, Asia-based Intelligent Automation (IA) provider, has signed a strategic partnership with IA specialist IAC. Together they are combining automation expertise, servicing the 57% of companies that are exploring intelligent automation.

This initiative will provide a much-needed alternative for some customers who invested early in legacy robotic process automation (RPA) players such as Blue Prism, Automation Anywhere and UiPath, and are reportedly failing to see a return on investment (ROI). 

Together, Laiye and IAC aim to become the strongest capable service partner in  the Europe Middle East and Africa region(EMEA), bringing advanced solutions to the intelligent RPA, intelligent document processing (IDP) and conversational chatbots markets. Laiye already serves one out of five Fortune 500 companies, including European-headquartered customers including PorscheJohnson & Johnson, and LVMH

The partnership will, say the partners, help unshackle businesses from the constraints and bulky integrations of the ‘Big Three’, without forcing them to rip and replace existing solutions. With Laiye, they can realise a greater return on investment than historic RPA solutions, by linking traditional automation with smart Artificial Intelligence capabilities that optimise their business processes as they continue the journey to Hyper Intelligent Automation.

Neil Parker, general manager EMEA, at Laiye comments, “Intelligent automation enables any size organisation to fuel its digital transformation. Europe is rich in opportunity and growth, and working with IAC helps us serve this dynamic and fast-growing market and industrialise AI, cognitive, and RPA capabilities. We look forward to working together.”

Olivier Gomez

Fresh off the back of Laiye’s $50 million (€44.08 million) commitment to EMEA growth, and the launch of its UK operations, the partnership underlines the company’s desire to bring IA to the continent. Laiye and IAC’s collaboration will cover resell for France, Spain, Italy and Portugal as well as the Middle East. In addition as one of a growing number of highly certified professional services and implemented partners they have global reach under this landmark agreement. 

With more than 20 years of experience, IAC is a team of recognised global experts specialising in delivering outcomes by implementing use cases to guarantee a smooth IA journey.

Olivier Gomez, co-founder and CEO at IAC says, “At IAC we focus above all on disrupting time to value for our clients and improving ROI. This is why we are looking forward to partnering with Laiye and their very powerful portfolio including AstraZenecaRoche and more, to build on its expertise and better service our shared customers.”
