The power of the Blue Prism ecosystem comes from the strength and diversity of our Blue Prism Partners – and that’s why we run our annual Partner Awards. It’s our way of celebrating the partners who’ve done the most to move our ecosystem forward in the past 12 months.
This year’s Partner Awards took place on June 24th, as part of the Partner Forum section of our Blue Prism World Virtual event – our very first full-scale virtual conference. While we hope that next year’s awards will be a face-to-face event, it was wonderful to bring together the cream of the partner ecosystem in the virtual space.
A celebration of our talented Blue Prism Partners
The Partner Awards 2020 was a chance to congratulate our partners for their hard work and dedication in 2020 – in what has been a hugely challenging year for most of us.
The virtual awards ceremony was presented by Linda Dotts, Chief Partner Strategy Officer at Blue Prism, alongside Gavin Simpson, from our EMEA office and Gregg Brett, from our North America office, who were there to announce the winners for their regions.
We’ve seen the usage of robotic process automation (RPA) continue to grow and diversify in 2020, as more and more organisations push their digital transformation agendas and expand their use of Blue Prism’s connected-RPA and Intelligent Automation. Our partners play a huge role in promoting and demonstrating the role that automation has to play for ambitious digital-led organizations, so it’s always a joy to acknowledge each and every partner’s commitment.
Our global winners
RPA and Intelligent Automation have had a global impact in recent times, and we believe that automation will have a significant role to play in the coming year, as organizations look to technology and distributed workforces to ease the negative impact of the coronavirus crisis.
We believe our global award winners this year are at the cutting edge of the digital revolution, and it’s been an honor to recognize their achievements.
