The winners were selected from an overwhelming number of registrations and nominations that were received from Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and India. The selection was based on project or process level impact, business level impact, and strategic level impact derived from their use of automation toward business functions.

The winners were selected by a jury panel, comprising of eminent senior industry executives such as Mohit Bhatnagar, Managing Director – Sequoia Capital India LLP, Ashok Pai, Vice President & Global Head, Cognitive Business Operations – TCS, Pari Natarajan, CEO – Zinnov, Pranjal Sharma, Author of ‘India Automated: How the fourth industrial revolution is transforming India’, Sanjiv Rangrass, Group Head for R&D, Sustainability and Projects – ITC and Anubhuti Sanghai, Head of Operations and Customer Service – ICICI Bank.

Reminiscing the judging process, Sanjiv Rangrass, Group Head for R&D, Sustainability and Projects, ITC said, “In my four decades, I have judged several events cutting across innovations, manufacturing excellence, case studies etc. The judging process for the UiPath Automation Excellence Awards over two days was perhaps the most comprehensive and energizing. Every idea broke existing barriers for me and proved once again that ‘we are only limited by our imagination.’ I was excited to see the vast possibilities to improve efficiency and accuracy, to remove drudgery and monotony of tasks, to enhance quality and speed, and deliver financial benefits. RPA is here to stay and is changing the way we work. UiPath, well done recognizing our RPA warriors.”

 Murli Mohan, Vice President, India Business, UiPath added, “Having watched a large number of customers recognising the business value of automation in South Asia, I must say that we are humbled by the overall response and the diversity of innovative projects on digital transformation, despite the challenges faced in 2020.
