The Robotic Process Automation landscape is growing rapidly, as more and more companies are now understanding the benefits of RPA for their business operations. An Independent Research report evaluated 12 software vendors amongst 28 criteria and named Contextor as a Contender in Robotic Process Automation evaluation.
Contextor was among the select companies that Forrester invited to participate in its 2017 Forrester Wave™ evaluation for Robotic Process Automation. In this evaluation, Contextor’s highest scores are for “Bot development and core functions”, “Architecture” and “Breadth of use case”. We think it reflects the fact that Contextor, being a pioneer in “attended RPA”, has a strong positioning in that field. Forrester states that “Contextor is an integrated development environment that targets agility. The Contextor solution is deployed in back or front office, including point of sales and branch-office use cases […]. It is most suitable for advanced enterprises or integration partners leveraging the flexibility to add value.”
According to Forrester Research, “RPA is gaining the interest of enterprises, as many are under immense pressure to digitize operations”. The research firm forecasts that the RPA market will reach $2.8 billion by 2021.
For Patrick Lemare, Contextor Founder and CEO, “Being named a “Contender” by Forrester is a first step for our company, and a tremendous encouragement for the Contextor team. For more than 10 years, far before than the name RPA even appeared, we have been a pioneer in the new world of applications’ assistants. Our aim is to improve efficiency of business operations while providing agility to help IT managers. We achieve that by improving customer experience and increasing employee’s satisfaction. Contextor has effectively implemented robotic process automation solutions in more than 50 large companies in Europe and Middle East, from interactive tools running on the desktop to autonomous robots running on servers. Robotic Automation is really changing the game when it comes to increasing operational efficiency for businesses, but there still isn’t enough awareness about how much value RPA technology can bring and how fast its ROI is. Supported by our best-in-class partners, we are involved in more and more projects on this fast-growing market.”
