In Conversation with Alok Mani Tripathi, RPATech Founder and CEO

Q. Why was the company set up? And how did you expand your company and its offerings over the years?

While I was carrying the automation flag around enterprises, I had acquired huge skill sets on managing RPA and AI in different fields of industrial functioning during my working with various enterprises. I realized that RPA implementation is different than typical software development. Later, I set up the company RPATech to exclusively focus on this area to optimize their impact on the functioning of an organization and to bring necessary changes to the working styles of enterprises that result in substantial value addition.

Q. Can you brief us about the history of your company?

RPATech was incepted in November 2017 with a handful of people, with a vision to democratize RPA; first step was to create methodologies to ensure right way of implementations. And we created our own tools to assist in discovery and AI elements. We believed in partner-led strategy. We are partners with UiPath, Automation Anywhere, Softomotive, Datamatics, Enate, etc. RPATech acquired its first Customer in March 2018 post which there was no looking back. RPATech has delivered innovative intelligent automation solutions to many enterprises. RPATech’s training division has trained more than 1000 people on RPA platform.

This year RPATech has won the ‘Top 10 Most Intelligent Automation Company’ award and was chosen as a top company among the ‘20 RPA companies-2019’. RPATech, a pure-play RPA Company, started its journey with a clear focus on cognitive and service delivery automation with development of RPA talent in industry to help support quick adoption of RPA. We started with a partner-led strategy with leading RPA tools like UiPath, Automation Anywhere and SoftoMotive. We are the only Franchisee training partner of UiPath. Our aim was to help enterprises adopt RPA with minimum teething trouble.

Q. There is nothing more important for a successful small business than a well-defined mission and vision statements. Can you explain your M&V statements in brief?

RPATech has a mission to democratize Robotic Process Automation in enterprises. Our vision is to be the market leader in the implementation of intelligent automation. We will confront this challenge by developing innovative tools, development and customer service strategies.

Q. What is your greatest fear, and how do you manage to overcome the same?

The constant challenge is to remain relevant and top of the innovation needs of the industry and to be dynamic to be apace with other technological and managerial developments. We deal with the same with a flexible mindset and being ever open to the developments happening around us and maintaining a grip on technology and always striving to be at the cutting edge of technology and innovation.

Q. What were the biggest initial hurdles to building your business and how did you overcome them?

The initial hurdle was to help our organization understand what RPA is and how it can be beneficial for the organizations. Along with it we also faced POC mania as most of the organizations wanted us to do a PoC for their processes.

Q. ‘It is difficult to start a venture. But far more difficult to maintain it’ - How would you and your team interpret this saying?

It is to some extent true. However, once a venture is started with a group of like-minded people with a common vision, similar objectives in their minds, and in whose minds the trajectory is clearly set, half the job is done. The rest is accomplished by maintaining the team spirit and remaining alive to the changing times by bringing necessary changes to the technology and management within the dynamics of group solidarity.

Q. If you had one piece of advice to someone just starting out, what would it be?

Believe in one’s own ability and to team up with a set of like-minded people.
