Appian recently announced that Vontobel, a global financial specialist, is using Appian Robotic Process Automation (RPA) across the organization to speed its business transformation and automation activities. In 2016, Vontobel started using the Appian Low-Code Platform to optimize operational business operations ranging from front-line customer support to back-office governance, risk, and compliance.

Dirk Pohla, Regional Vice President of Appian DACH, said, “We are very proud that Vontobel chose Appian RPA to automate their mission-critical processes and continue to partner with us on their business transformation journey. Together with Vontobel, we have demonstrated that Appian RPA as part of the Appian Low-Code Platform can bring significant value and deliver impact quickly to benefit any organization, regardless of their choice to go with an on-premise or cloud-based deployment model.”

Vontobel can add Appian RPA cloud capabilities to the bank’s on-premises Appian deployment: RPA bots run on-premise to automate processes and update data, while the underlying software runs in the cloud.

Vontobel’s manual operations for processing investment assets, banking products, and other operational activities are automated with Appian RPA. The bots help the bank save time and money by reducing process times and operating expenses while also enhancing data quality. In addition, Appian RPA uses real-time analytics and dashboards to monitor all bots and automated processes, allowing Vontobel to have improved operational oversight for risk management and regulatory compliance.
