Strategic consulting alliance matches RGP with robotics experts Wonderbotz

29 May 2018 3 min. read

Leading business consultancy RGP has announced a new strategic alliance in Robotic Process Automation with Wonderbotz LLP, a consulting firm dedicated to helping clients adopt and monetize robotics.

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is a type of customized software that can mimic repetitive human actions in the workplace, therefore freeing people up to perform more complex tasks. Firms that adopt RPA save time on essential but simple activities – such as processing customer orders – while minimizing mistakes. These RPA automations are known as “bots”, or digital workers. In the first year alone, companies which bring in RPA effectively can expect a ROI of 30-200%, according to McKinsey analysis.

As a global consultancy that provides services in the fields of finance & accounting, risk & compliance, and supply chain management, RGP has many clients with a keen interest in harnessing RPA to optimize their processes. Formerly known as Resources Global Professionals, the Irvine, California-based firm is present in 70 countries and has serviced half of the global Fortune 500.

So a strategic alliance with a preeminent RPA-focussed consultancy makes perfect sense for the firm, which is eager to add deep robotics expertise to its broad consulting offering.

Wonderbotz – a Las Vegas-based firm – is a relative newcomer founded in 2017 but the partners have Big Four pedigree and have quickly turned Wonderbotz into an industry leader in what is still an emerging field. Wonderbotz was recently named among the 20 Most Promising Robotics Solution Providers for 2018.

The alliance combines RGP’s functional experience with WonderBotz’s digital transformation expertise. Clients who secure consulting partnerships under the alliance will have access not only to the best RPA resources available, but also to the strategic vision of a global consulting powerhouse.

“We are just scratching the surface of the power of automation through RPA, and the impact to our clients could be massive”, said RGP EVP of Integrated Solutions Tracey Figurelli. “RGP leads with its business process and functional expertise to help clients get in front of this disruption, while the combination of RGP and WonderBotz provides our clients with an end-to-end digital transformation offering that leverages strong functional and technical expertise.”

“This is a great pairing of like-minded firms passionate about client value,” said WonderBotz Co-Founder and Managing Partner Steve LaValle. “WonderBotz brings a strong vision on how to monetize digital worker opportunities and is focused on helping organizations unleash the power of digital workers with strategy, development and production services.”

The alliance has already borne fruit. RGP and Wonderbotz successfully helped a Fortune 500 Silicon Valley tech company transform its financial processes using the RPA platform of Blue Prism – a software giant that pioneered RPA technology. Together the consultancies optimized the ledger entry system for more than 15,000 accounts, saving the client a great deal of time and manpower.
