Blue Prism Continues to Drive Intelligent Automation Capabilities Through New Affiliate Technology Alliance Partnerships
K2, Loop AI Labs, re:Infer and Rossum join Blue Prism’s Technology Alliance Program As Affiliates Making it One of the Broadest and Most Innovative in the Industry
Austin, Texas, and London — November 13, 2018 — Blue Prism (AIM: PRSM), today announced the addition of K2, Loop AI Labs, re:Infer and Rossum to its Technology Alliance Program as affiliates, strengthening an already broad array of technology and independent software vendors (ISVs), that provide new and breakthrough intelligent automation capabilities. These partners enable customers to leverage Blue Prism’s Robotic Process Automation (RPA) platform to build out best-in-class solutions that incorporate cutting edge, artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, OCR and data extraction capabilities.
“From the outset, Blue Prism has been focused on the democratization of IT, but we realized we couldn’t do it alone,” said Anne McClelland, Vice President, Global Technology Partners for Blue Prism. “We’ve worked to build out one of the world’s broadest and most comprehensive technology ecosystems that provides easy access to best-of-breed software and service providers for RPA and AI. By adding K2, Loop AI Labs, re:Infer and Rossum to the fold, we’re bringing forward more options for intelligent automation capabilities that our enterprise customers can use to drive efficiencies and innovations in order to digitally transform.”
Companies participating in Blue Prism’s Technology Alliance Program at an affiliate level can easily customize their solutions, accelerate product development and minimize time to market for their products, using the market’s most advanced RPA software. It also allows partners like Loop AI Labs, K2 and re:Infer and Rossum the opportunity to expand market awareness of the benefits of RPA by delivering digital enablement, and ultimately increasing sales of their own complementary products to Blue Prism’s ecosystem:
K2: K2 is one of the leading low-code digital process automation (DPA) platforms for enterprises seeking to rapidly and intelligently create modern process applications, automate workflows and transform their business. Integration with Blue Prism means users can now accelerate digital transformation and modernize their legacy systems.
“By leveraging the integration between K2 and Blue Prism, it’s easier and faster than ever to automate end-to-end business processes including repetitive, manual tasks like data entry. This helps teams focus their efforts on high-value work,” said Eyal Inbar, Vice President of Technology Alliances at K2. “Organizations can now intelligently automate their processes, ultimately increasing productivity and delivering a better customer experience.”
Loop AI Labs: Loop AI Labs brings added cognitive computing capabilities to Blue Prism’s Digital Workforce. The integration enables users to evolve to Cognitive RPA and quickly create digital workers that learn from humans instead of from a human created rule set. This is the first time that self-learning cognitive digital workers will support any language and any enterprise-specific lingo: Loop Q understands concepts from all enterprise data in any language.
“By leveraging its own continuous learning and reasoning capabilities, Loop Q boosts the existing benefits of Blue Prism RPA complementing rule-based robots with self-learning capabilities learned from the jobs performed by the actual employees,” says Loop AI Labs’ Chief Customer Success Officer, Andrea Pitrone. “Our clients want to rapidly launch Cognitive RPA and start achieving the relevant correlated benefits as quickly as possible. At the same time, they want to reduce the time, cost, and complexity of maintaining a deployed RPA task force. Loop AI Labs’ unsupervised, self-learning cognitive platform allows for extremely fast deployment on-premises in a matter of days rather than months.”
Re:infer: Integrating Blue Prism’s Digital Workforce with re:infer’s deep learning platform enables enterprises to unlock hidden value in their unstructured communications data and accelerate Digital Transformation efforts. Re:infer automatically discovers the intents, sentiments, entities inherent in enterprise communications and is able to quantify manual processes, inefficient workflows or operational risks that can be replaced by Blue Prism’s Digital Workforce.
“The combination of re:infer’s deep learning platform and Blue Prism means that all of the unstructured processes that are initiated in opaque communications channels across the enterprise are now visible, quantifiable and actionable,” says Dr. Edward Challis, CEO of re:infer. “By mapping the semantic intent of communications to structured data, we enable high volume requests in emails and chats to be automated by Blue Prism’s Digital Workforce. Our clients can deliver enhanced customer experiences, digital operations and rapidly improved processing times.”
Rossum: The cognitive data capture technology of Rossum enables users to easily capture data from documents with variable layout such as invoices. Traditionally, data from invoices needed to be captured by humans or expensive, manually configured solutions. This was an impediment to the automation of invoice processing, but Rossum’s deep neural networks can understand complex documents without the setup of rules or templates. Blue Prism customers now benefit from Rossum’s end-to-end automation with minimum human involvement.
“At Rossum, we believe that manual data entry is literally a waste of human time and we are working together with Blue Prism to simply eliminate it from business processes,” explains Petr Baudis, the Chief AI Architect of Rossum. “Our first focus is invoices, where our disruptive technology truly streamlines accounts payable for companies of all sizes. Rossum users can automatically capture information from all kinds of invoice layouts from day one and leverage Blue Prism to easily integrate our service with their existing systems.”
The expansion of Blue Prism’s Technology Alliance Program’s Affiliate Partner Ecosystem also coincides and supports the company’s Digital Exchange launch — an intelligent automation marketplace. Unlike other technology marketplaces that offer limited capabilities, the Blue Prism Digital Exchange makes it possible for anyone to find and apply pre-built AI capabilities, in the form of open APIs and other means of integration, to automate mission-critical processes. These APIs connect and integrate to existing IT systems and processes while making Blue Prism a platform and solid foundation for both AI and IA that is scalable, secure and sustainable.
