Automation Anywhere announces record fourth quarter

Automation Anywhere, a leader in intelligent automation that puts AI to work across organisations, today announced it delivered record fourth quarter performance, boosted by its generative AI-powered automation solutions, large enterprise customer deals, and robust sales worldwide.

With its strong performance and increased momentum globally, the company reported that Q4 results exceeded its forecast and goals, notably a 50 percent growth from the third quarter and 14 percent increase in large deals year on year.

“Our fourth quarter and full year 2024 results illustrate our ongoing ability to deliver value to our customers,” said Mihir Shukla, CEO and Co-founder of Automation Anywhere. “This was a pivotal year for the company, building and sustaining robust growth, and achieving profitability ahead of schedule. We’re seeing more and more customers experience the tangible benefits of deploying AI and Intelligent Automation solutions at scale to help transform their business safely and securely. We have a very strong pipeline and tailwinds going into our fiscal year 2025.”

The company’s high customer retention rate is a strong signal that customers are engaged, committed, and aligned with Automation Anywhere’s strategy and vision. Related, the Automation Anywhere Pathfinder community program realized a 20 percent growth rate over the past year, and the Automation Anywhere University all-time online course completions cracked a staggering 3 million.

“Our focus in industry and specific vertical solutions to help customers accelerate dramatic process automation results is the focal point of our strategy moving into our new fiscal year,” Shukla continued. “The feedback we have received from our customers reaffirms the value that can be achieved from GenAI and automation. Our customers are responding to the enormous opportunity that GenAI-powered automation can bring, and they are pushing us to help them optimize the tangible, measurable, and transformational outcomes possible.”
