Deloitte has announced an alliance with Blue Prism to bring robotic process automation (RPA) solutions to its clients. The two organisations have been working together to implement RPA and intelligent automation technologies for clients across a wide array of industries and sectors, including financial services, retail, life sciences and energy. This announcement formalises that relationship.
The Blue Prism software enables organisations to automate manual, rules-based, mission critical processes, thereby helping to reduce costs and improve accuracy through the creation of a new “digital workforce.” Deloitte has used Blue Prism technology to address a variety of client business issues and opportunities, as well as for internal applications — building and deploying automations to confirm they are configured within an organisation’s governing information technology framework.
“Organisations around the world are looking to accelerate high-volume, highly repeatable tasks,” said Scott Sopher, principal at Deloitte Consulting LLP and leader of Deloitte’s Robotics & Cognitive automation practice. Together, Deloitte and Blue Prism automate these tasks for our clients, helping to optimise their operations and provide support as they transition to a digital workforce.”
Deloitte has a national and global network of practitioners skilled in robotics and automation, trained to help clients improve their operations and navigate their cognitive journeys.
"We share a common vision with Deloitte for helping customers drive innovation by automating mission critical work processes that can also be easily integrated with best-in-breed AI-enabled technologies and services,” said Ron Raczkowski, senior vice president of alliances and channels, Americas, for Blue Prism."
"This alliance enables Deloitte to deliver new and unprecedented efficiencies to their clients without having them overhaul underlying IT systems. We’re delivering a digital workforce that not only augments, supports and assists human colleagues, but one that provides operational agility — making it a true competitive differentiator."
