  • 1.  Slightly OT: RPA (Robotic Process Automation?)

    Posted 21 days ago
    Hi all - slightly off topic but you are the best geeks around.

    I'm looking for a referral to a resource that can implement RPA (robotic process automation).  Does anybody know of any independent contractors or (better yet) companies that can do RPA?  The sort of thing where they code a UiPath robot creature thingy which can click and fill in forms on behalf of a person.

    To Carrie Beam ... For AI and RPA tools consider viewing the websites of Mindbridge (The world's leading risk discovery platform: MindBridge's AI Platform - MindBridge )  or Blue Prism.

    I know well the Mindbridge team and welcome e-introducing you to them. I co-authored the article in this link below with Mindbridge's founder, Solon Angel. They are located in Ottawa Canada.

    Hi Carrie:

    Our Advanced Analytics and Intelligent Automation practice at Guidehouse does this kind of work. We maintain partnerships with the major RPA software platforms (including UiPath) and have certified RPA professionals on staff.

    Please send me a note to if you would like to discuss further!
