Industry leaders in Robotic Process Automation

With our beginnings in complex IT and cloud automation, EAS has worked with some of the world’s largest technology companies and many of the UK’s most high profile public sector and defence customers. Recognising the vast benefits that Robotic Process Automation could bring to organisations, EAS has focused on supporting organisations with business process automation; saving customers time, money and resources.

EAS was founded in 2015 by Phil Lewis and Lewis Hardwick, who both have decades of experience in automation. Phil and Lewis met while delivering projects for HPE, and recognised the opportunity of bringing agile automation solutions to customers across the UK and beyond. The team has now expanded to four specialist developers and a wider team supporting the business, with ambitious growth plans over the next 18 months.

With over 30 years’ combined experience in automation and cloud technologies such as VMWare vRealize, Accelerite Radia, Microsoft SCCM, HPE Operations Orchestration (OO), HPE Cloud Service Automation (CSA) and UiPath’s Robotic Process Automation platform, we act as a trusted, experienced automation partner to our customers.
