Irvine, CA, and Tokyo, Japan, May 8, 2018 – Fujitsu Limited and Kofax Japan have entered into a global sales partner agreement in Robotic Process Automation (RPA) (*1). This will enable the two companies to collaboratively conduct new market development activities. Fujitsu and Kofax are now offering RPA solutions in Japan, and will in the future steadily rollout globally.
Organizations are under immense pressure to digitize and automate all aspects of their operations, yet many still rely on manual tasks for vital business processes which may increase errors and costs. RPA is increasingly deployed to address the need to automate manual, repetitive tasks, eliminate errors, and deliver 100 percent data accuracy, thereby improving productivity, quality, and cost savings.
This partnership agreement allows Fujitsu and Kofax to collaboratively deploy Kapow™ RPA to support streamlined operations in various industries around the world.
