April 15, 2021
Robocorp was recently designated as a OneOffice Hot Vendor by HFS Research, a leading analyst organization with a focus on major innovations that impact business operations. The Q1 2021 report, now available on the HFS website, recognizes six “emerging players” from across the globe, with the “vision and strategy to impact and disrupt the market.”
According to the report, “HFS Hot Vendors are service and technology providers hand-picked by our analysts to help you flesh out your smart ecosystem with offerings that solve today’s complex business problems and exploit market opportunities. HFS Hot Vendors display truly differentiated offerings and out-of-the-box thinking that can be both inspiring and useful."
“We are thrilled and honored to be named to this exclusive list,” said Antti Karjalainen, CEO of Robocorp. “To receive any recognition from HFS is a high honor, which is only compounded by the other companies on the list.”
In the report, HFS highlights key areas where Robocorp stands out, including:
“HFS has designated Robocorp as a OneOffice Hot Vendor because of its commitment to bringing automation to the world in a scalable and extensible fashion.”
- Automation-as-a-service model
“HFS views the potential of Robocorp as less about a developer-led revolution (although a few more fans of process automation in IT could not hurt) and much more about automation-as-a service.”
- Developer-focused approach
“While we’re big advocates of driving digital fluency and problem solving into every worker in our burgeoning work-from-anywhere economy, citizen development has not taken off."
According to HFS, “The Digital OneOffice is where the organization’s people, intelligence, processes and infrastructure come together as one integrated unit, with one set of unified business outcomes tied to exceeding customer expectations.”
Karjalainen added, “While we have built a platform with developers in mind, we have done so with a focus on solving business problems. We have long considered the word ‘citizen developer’ as an oxymoron: when developers build automations, its possibilities are limitless.”
By putting the power of automation into its clients’ hands, Robocorp is shattering the previous barriers of automation. Funded by Benchmark, Firstminute Capital, Slow Ventures, and Harpoon, Robocorp seeks to empower businesses, teams, and individuals to reach their full potential by automating mission critical routines—a robot for every task.
