Leading Research Firm Recognizes the “Premier League” of RPA Professional Services Firms

Recognized leaders partner with Blue Prism to deliver successful transformational digital workforces powered by Blue Prism RPA software

New York and London—December 21, 2016—HfS Research, The Services Research CompanyTM and a leading analyst authority for business operations and IT services, recently released its 2016 Robotic Premier League list, the services industry’s widely-recognized annual assessment of the top transformational enablers of robotic process automation (RPA), as well as pure-play RPA specialists.  As the pioneer of RPA, Blue Prism has benefited from the focus and growth of these professional services firms and their successful deployments of transformational digital workforces powered by Blue Prism RPA software.

“Blue Prism’s go-to-market model depends on the transformational expertise and industry knowledge professional services firms bring to clients. These top firms have driven RPA beyond cost-savings initiatives to broad, transformational and successful digital workforce implementations,” noted Michael Laurenson, Blue Prism’s global head of alliances and channels. “We are pleased to see our partners overwhelmingly represented in HfS’s Premier League, and we’re particularly proud of the role Blue Prism has played in the evolution of the pure-play RPA service providers.”

Blue Prism’s partner ecosystem has continued to deliver stellar results for the company and is responsible for almost all of the 96 new Blue Prism customers in FY16 that are deploying a transformative digital workforce. More than half of the HfS Premier League partner with Blue Prism to deliver enterprise RPA, including Alsbridge, Accenture, Capgemini, Cognizant, CSC, Deloitte, EY, HCL, HPE, IBM, KPMG, PwC, TCS and Tech Mahindra, as well as the top four of the pure-play RPA companies: Symphony, Genfour, Virtual Operations and Thoughtonomy.

According to the report, HfS evaluated service providers against the following criteria:

  • Vision and credibility of RPA strategy
  • Driving value through end-to-end process view as opposed to short term cost cutting
  • Breadth and maturity of internal tools and external partnerships for RPA
  • Scale of deployments
  • Integration of RPA in delivery strategy
  • Commercial traction
  • Effectiveness of marketing effort behind RPA strategy
