Deloitte has formed an alliance with Blue Prism, a robotic process automation (RPA) vendor, to bring RPA services to its clients.

The two companies worked together before forming their alliance, implementing RPA and intelligent automation technologies for clients across a range of industries and sectors, including financial services, retail, life sciences and energy.

Blue Prism software helps organisations to automate manual, rule-based processes, in order to reduce costs and improve accuracy through the creation of a ‘digital workforce’.

Deloitte has used Blue Prism’s technology internally for their applications and to build and deploy automations. It has also used the technology to address a variety of client business issues and opportunities.

Deloitte Consulting LLP principal Scott Sopher said: “Organisations around the world are looking to accelerate high-volume, highly repeatable tasks. Together, Deloitte and Blue Prism automate these tasks for our clients, helping to optimise their operations and provide support as they transition to a digital workforce.”

Everest Group’s practice director Amardeep Modi added: “The demand for RPA expertise and skills will only continue to sky rocket as enterprises start to unlock the full potential of automation.

“The market leaders continue to build a robust partner ecosystem for global distribution; implementation and support services; collaborative technology; and sharing best practices. Such an ecosystem play is becoming a key to effectively delivering a holistic automation solution for enterprises. The alliance between Deloitte and Blue Prism in one such example.”
