Orica and UiPath global partnership enables deep digital mining


Orica, one of the world’s largest mining and infrastructure solutions providers, has announced a global alliance with UiPath to scale Orica’s application testing and automation capabilities to drive enterprise-wide process efficiencies.

The firm worked with Accenture as an advisor and selected UiPath as its technology partner of choice for application testing and enterprise automation.

Orica will deploy the UiPath Test Suite solution to add further capabilities to its S/4HANA software, including business-wide automation, robotic process automation (RPA) technology, and testing capabilities. In addition, the implementation will provide Orica with a unified, efficient, easy-to-use, and shareable testing environment across different groups.

With UiPath, Orica will automate application testing, allowing quality assurance teams to identify and address any underlying issues before deployment without impacting existing workflows. This will transform testing from a cost center to a value center, allowing Orica to minimize the cost and risk associated with new software investments.

By March 2023, Orica plans to have all existing processes migrated to the UiPath Business Automation Platform.

“We see automation as a strategic priority that will help accelerate Orica’s business transformation, value, and growth,” said Chris Crozier, CIO at Orica. “With a proven track record of success in supporting other global organizations, we are confident that UiPath is the trusted partner that can best support our automation journey, and maximize our investments in digital transformation.”

“We are excited to partner with Orica to scale their application testing and automation capabilities and drive enterprise-wide process efficiencies,” said Robert Enslin, co-CEO at UiPath. “Our global footprint ensures that we can provide support for Orica’s teams worldwide with best practices and governance, as well as provide local on-the-ground support and expertise across each of the four key business regions that Orica operates in. This partnership also reinforces our commitment to help enterprises like Orica to move beyond legacy systems and scale their digital capabilities in line with a rapidly changing application ecosystem.”
