The announcement gives PwC the ability to sell Blue Prism’s connected-RPA software globally, alongside implementation services enabling clients to digitise their operation.
Over the past 24 months, PwC has been building out its RPA offering and becoming a Blue Prism delivery partner, achieving global certification for delivery capabilities and becoming a certified training partner.
In addition, Blue Prism’s digital workforce enables PwC to leverage a wide variety of artificial intelligence, machine learning, analytics, optical character recognition and other capabilities.
Together both organisations are working with leading Fortune 500 companies to help improve overall operational agility.
Jon Andrews, technology & investment executive board member, PwC UK, said: “Delivering the full value of RPA and intelligent automation requires far more than a simple focus on the technology. By combining these technologies with business understanding and human insight we can enable radical improvements in business performance.
“Blue Prism’s technology is key to how we help our clients solve their most complex business problems and succeed in becoming more competitive and responsive to customer demands. Our collaboration will focus on helping organisations across the globe looking to drive digital transformation.”
Jon Theuerkauf, chief customer advocate for Blue Prism, said: “PwC is incredibly well-aligned with our vision for what a digital workforce can deliver. They’ve built a well-deserved reputation as a market leader in helping customers adopt and drive value from our technology on a global basis as well as applying Blue Prism. Our technology along with PwC’s expertise will be a powerful combination and a catalyst for disruptive change in customer innovation.”
