Robocorp announces expanded partner program to bring benefits of automation to more businesses
Program includes new benefits and resources for partners to build and market their process automation services on Robocorp's open-source platform
August 17, 2021 – Robocorp
Robocorp, the open-source process automation platform, today unveiled new programs to further enable partners and service providers, including robots-as-a-service (RaaS) consultants, to bring automation to businesses across industries and around the globe.
The expanded program includes the launch of Partner Central, a collection of resources to aid in the process building, marketing and sales efforts of Robocorp partners, as well as opportunities for partners to get involved in the future development and expansion of Robocorp products. Partners are given a seat at the table to provide direct feedback about both Robocorp’s products and the partner program, have the option to network and learn from each other, all of which will help improve partner experience and expand the enablement resources offered by Robocorp.
Robocorp began working with partners upon launching its open-source tech stack and cloud-native orchestration platform, Control Room (formerly Robocorp Cloud) in 2020. Since launch, the partner ecosystem has continued to expand rapidly. Robocorp has established a partner relationship with 75+ organizations around the world, including a number of certified partners expertly scaling their Robocorp-based practices that are listed at on Robocorp's partner page alongside case studies and further details.
“From day one, our partners have been critical to our success,” said Robocorp CEO Antti Karjalainen. “We are fortunate to have built a global network of partners in a short amount of time, and we are excited to improve the partner experience and better set them up for success.”
Process automation and RaaS consultants are drawn to Robocorp for two key reasons. First, Robocorp’s open-source, developer-focused automation technology allows partners to build robust and sustainable bots—eliminating the need to build and rebuild bots due to limited drag & drop models.
Consumption-based pricing with low start-up costs enable partners and their customers to get started easily and make automation more accessible to businesses and processes of all sizes - with the confidence to also scale to the most mission-critical, complex, large deployments. Robocorp’s cloud-native technology means that partners and customers do not have to invest in costly infrastructure that has the tendency to put projects out of reach.
Early Robocorp partner Thoughtful Automation was looking for an automation solution that was not proprietary, offered ownership of code and was cost-effective to scale without any additional overheads or up-front costs.
“We found Robocorp while looking for a low-maintenance RPA cloud alternative to the typical closed-source RPA software vendors that would allow us to control development at the code level,” explained Alex Zekoff, CEO of Thoughtful Automation. “We can now scale horizontally from 1 to hundreds of bots without additional overhead and technical debt. Robocorp has helped reduce our operational overhead by 90% and improve robot run times by 60%.”
The partner program provides access to resources to grow and scale their automation business, including technical and training materials, co-branded marketing materials and events, sales materials, ongoing onboarding support, and more. The addition of Partner Central will make these materials and resources more easily accessible to Robocorp’s partners.
"We’re proud to hear how much our partners enjoy and appreciate working with our team, specifically their compliments about the care and attention that all receive equally.” said Peter Steube, Robocorp’s Head of Partnerships. “Whether it’s meetings and training with customer success, our community learning or meetups, the rapid developer support offered through Slack, we are above all committed to setting our partners up for success. And there’s even more to come.”
Quandri, a Canada-based robots-as-a-service startup, chose Robocorp because the platform allows them to build robots from scratch instead of relying on and having their technology housed in a third party. They also wanted a partner that could help them grow their business and bring in new customers.
“Robocorp truly invests in their partners and they go that extra mile to build and support the partnership, explained Quandri Co-founder, Jackson Fregaeu. “This valuable relationship is helping us build our business and expand our customer base. We are excited to grow with Robocorp on our journey together in the RPA market.”
