Blue Prism is a pioneer, innovator and leader in the Robotic Process Automation (RPA) market. The company has developed an intelligent Digital Workforce, called connected-RPA, which is capable of self-learning and continuous improvement, empowering users to automate billions of transactions while returning hundreds of millions of hours of work back into the business—freeing up employees to create, build and share their innovations.

blue prismBlue Prism’s vision aims to democratize IT and unleash human potential. Currently, more than 1,500 global customers leverage Blue Prism’s Digital Workforce to securely automate and perform mission critical processes either in the cloud or on premises. This ability to automate at scale, gives enterprises a game changing way of staying competitive and accelerating time to market for new services and products.

“Our vision for connected-RPA is about giving the power of creativity to an organization’s people, while maintaining control and connecting innovations together, so individual work adds up to a far more powerful whole,” says Alastair Bathgate, CEO and co-founder at Blue Prism.

Looking to extend automation capabilities even further, Blue Prism introduced its Digital Exchange (DX) last November to make it even easier for everyone to access and exploit leading-edge cloud, AI and cognitive technologies. This online RPA community and partner ecosystem provides business leaders drag and drop access to hundreds of intelligent automation capabilities from companies like Appian, ABBYY, Google, Microsoft, IBM and more. It is an enterprise “app store” for intelligent automation solutions, with Blue Prism providing the foundation.

Blue Prism also closed its acquisition of Thoughtonomy in July, which will see its connected-RPA offering distributed and supported as a turnkey SaaS offering. Thoughtonomy gives customers an easy to manage SaaS offering running on Microsoft Azure resulting in an on demand virtual workforce. This acquisition will make RPA more accessible across mid-tier enterprises worldwide and accelerate customer adoption in key market verticals including financial services, telecom, insurance, retail, healthcare and pharmaceuticals, professional services, energy, utilities, public sector and outsourcing providers.

And in South Africa, companies of all sizes including brands like Old Mutual are fast embracing RPA to drive innovation and reinvent themselves. To support these businesses and meet customer demand Blue Prism has launched a South African RPA community.

Blue Prism has been at the forefront of helping organizations drive their digital transformation strategy for more than a decade via a Digital Workforce. The company has never wavered from its vision, which continues to deliver unprecedented capacity and operational agility to customers worldwide. Moving forward the company is poised to drive the next wave of innovation, what analysts and pundits are calling the 5th industrial revolution. Welcome to the new world of automation.
