Professional-services firm Grant Thornton LLP and Information Services Group (ISG), a global technology research and advisory firm, have formed an alliance that will help Grant Thornton clients improve their business operations through robotic process automation (RPA).

Grant Thornton brings to the alliance its deep advisory know-how, especially its experience optimizing and re-designing complex business processes for companies across multiple industries – plus its decades of knowledge in the audit and tax arenas.

ISG contributes its expertise in helping businesses transform their operations through RPA and other digital technologies. As a trusted business partner to more than 700 companies worldwide – including 75 of the top 100 enterprises in the world – ISG has a proven track record advising companies on automation strategies and deploying RPA systems that enhance efficiency, reduce costs, free employees from repetitive, routine tasks and allow them to focus on higher-value knowledge work.

Mike McGuire, CEO at Grant Thornton, said “as new technologies accelerate disruption in the marketplace, companies need a wide range of innovative tools to improve their processes and performance. Grant Thornton’s alliance with ISG allows us to deliver RPA as part of a comprehensive approach to innovation, including robotics, data analytics, blockchain and artificial intelligence.”

Michael P. Connors, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer at ISG, commented “we welcome the opportunity to work in close partnership with Grant Thornton to ensure its US clients have access to the best technology and expertise to automate their business processes. Business today is growing more digital. Every company, no matter how they started or where they are heading, is going to be run on data, analytics and cognitive intelligence, all of which will be leveraged to enhance speed to market, operating efficiency and customer experience. That’s going to require new levels of innovation, design thinking, automation and complete transformation of business models. ISG and Grant Thornton, together through this alliance, are uniquely positioned to meet these needs for current and future Grant Thornton clients.”

According to Nichole Jordan, Managing Partner of Markets, Clients & Industry at Grant Thornton: “companies across industries are planning to invest billions in the future of work – how they build and deliver value to their customers more efficiently and effectively. Collaborating with ISG means we can help those companies realize these goals through our blended offering of intelligent and innovative tools like RPA.”
