Bucharest-based Tailent, the Romanian start-up that offers scalable Robotic Process Automation, expands to Central and South America with the Serviceaide partnership, a Brazilian IT company, a global provider of smart solutions for AI companies. Tailent wants to differentiate from UiPath’s RPA offer with its scalability for the SMEs niche.
“The adoption of RPA is virtually instant. For implementation services, we rely on a skilled partner network that is there to guide customers on their digital transformation journey. In this way, our partners get to contribute to making more and more skilled bots available,” shared Mario Popescu, Tailent CEO for The Recursive.
The company, founded in 2016, wants to attract a different type of target, that is why the RPA addresses small and medium companies that want to perform. Robotic software isn’t available for these businesses because of the high costs.
In 2020 Tailent attracted a €500K funding round from Neogen Capital and this valued the company at €5M. At the beginning of this year, the start-up partnered up with ETA2U, one of the best-established IT solutions integrators in western and central Romania. Another partnership was with Aliant, a Romanian Xerox solutions distributor. These partnerships are part of the accelerated growth of the startup in Romania, Europe, Central and South America, and Asia, which will continue in 2021.
RPA for SMEs
Amongst the RPA’s adopters, there is Logiscool, the Romanian programming platform for children. Another name is Recycle International that wants to digitize processes and focus on the core of the business. “Software robots and employees are basically part of the same team and collaborate. And while certain tasks that were previously done by people will be taken over by robots, this only means that employees can only evolve professionally,” added Popescu.
The Tailent platform uses an adaptable SaaS, a software as a service based on an annual fee to be able to access the technology. Companies have the opportunity to recruit a digital team of reusable software robots that can perform repetitive processes based on AI to save time.
The Recursive took part in the Robotic Process Automation European conference on the 13th of April where we got the chance to listen to the Tailent’s CEO, Mario Popescu, telling the history of the robotic niche. In the conference, he talked about the benefits of the technological revolution, that the way we work reports on the quality of our lives. He added that “an unproductive society doesn’t evolve” and that “innovation brings purpose”.
“Tailent is set to be the next RPA unicorn from Romania and this objective entails a strong development starting locally and a sustainable development from continent to continent, being there for all companies in need of advanced technologies for business process automation and optimization. SMEs are the backbone of the economy, independent of their location, and we want to help Romanian SMEs to make our contribution to a healthy economy,” concluded Mario.
