Blue Prism Continues Rapid Global Expansion Opening New Offices in Singapore and Hong Kong

Company boosts Asia-Pacific market presence by opening APAC Headquarters in Singapore and sixth new office location in past year, highlighting increased market demand for its Digital Workforce

SINGAPORE and HONG KONG — August 13, 2018 —Blue Prism (AIM: PRSM), today announced the opening of its Asia-Pacific headquarters in Singapore and new offices in Hong Kong, providing local sales and consulting support to help meet increasing demands for its Digital Workforce platform. These new offices will support Blue Prism’s growing list of Fortune 500 customers in Asia, which includes marquee clients such as Great Eastern Life, Maybank, and Schroders to name a few, across multiple vertical industries including banking, insurance, manufacturing, government and retail.

According to IDC Financial Insights estimates, RPA will be in use in at least 40 percent of Asia-Pacific banks and insurance companies by 2020. In addition, the latest IDC FutureScape predictions state that use of RPA enhanced by artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities will grow threefold by 2021. These market adoption numbers are being supported and validated by the strong customer growth Blue Prism is experiencing in the region.

“We are the local provider of choice for intelligent automation and operational transformation in Asia. The Blue Prism ecosystem in Asia continues to grow with local language support, employees across Asia, partners in-region and multiple successful Digital Workforce deployments,” said Martin Flood, Blue Prism’s EVP of Global Sales. “The new office locations will strengthen and augment our existing capabilities in region, including our expansion in Japan, India and Australia. As the market leaders serving an estimated 1,000 organizations worldwide, we are excited about our commitment to customers in the Asia Pacific region.”

Blue Prism’s Digital Workforce augments, supports and assists humans to increase productivity, improve experience, and deliver true operational agility for business-wide RPA deployments. It helps organizations automate and scale business processes via AI, machine learning, intelligent automation and sentiment analysis. The open nature of this platform provides reusable, modular software objects that can be configured with minimal intervention from developers, allowing business users, process excellence engineers and subject matter experts at leading global enterprises to quickly deploy Blue Prism’s digital workers (software robots) that automate and complete increasingly complex tasks through a single platform.

Blue Prism also eliminates vendor lock-in by providing access to the best of breed AI technologies and Intelligent Automation skills through the company’s Technology Alliance Program (TAP). Unlike uncontrolled desktop scripting and macro recorders, Blue Prism is driving enterprise RPA adoption through a business led and IT-endorsed, methodology and architecture that enables long-term success, true digital transformation and overall lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).

Reaction from our Customers and Partners


“Schroders chose Blue Prism as our Robotic Process Automation platform because it is the leading enterprise offering that provides us with robust security and controls. As a financial services firm, this is a critical consideration for us as we must ensure that risks are addressed in order for our operations and processes to proceed smoothly,” said Lilian Tham, COO Singapore and Head of APAC Technology & Operations from Schroders. “The Blue Prism platform has allowed Schroders to empower our business to leverage Robotic Process Automation to enhance our efficiency.”
