About this event

Category # 1: Student RPA Innovation

UiPath continues to devote its efforts to solve social problems that challenge all of us. In this category, we are looking for collecting inspiring ideas for automation that create a positive impact on society through innovation. Participants are expected to develop ideas and solutions that can solve any challenge related to:

Accessibility

Environment

Diversity and Inclusion

Education

Health Care (Non-Covid)

Non Governmental Organizations (NGOs) and Public Sector

UiPath Innovation solutions help others understand best practices that can be applied across organizations to solve real-world related issues. What issues have you discovered where automation can assist in making a difference?

The list of probable uses of RPA are robust. Share how RPA is the best fit for solving problems encountered by organizations in the categories mentioned above, as they face challenges associated with the workforce, time, cost, creating a green environment and more... Share how RPA can empower organizations to focus more on mission-critical tasks and less on repetitive tasks.

Category # 2: Professional Enterprise Integration

Analysts and customers have highlighted UiPath’s technology alliance ecosystem as one of its three main strengths.
