AUSTIN, Texas and RESTON, Va., Oct. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Blue Prism, provider of the world’s most successful Digital Workforce, today announced that its Robotic Process Automation (RPA) software is now available to federal agencies on GSA IT Schedule 70 (GS-35F-0511T), through the company’s value-added distributor EC America (ImmixGroup). The addition provides government agencies a direct, streamlined method to procure and implement Blue Prism’s RPA solutions that provide intelligent digital workers, which can augment, support and assist their human colleagues.
The United States’ federal government has placed a strong focus on modernizing and improving service delivery as outlined in the recent President’s Management Agenda. This has resulted in additional pressure on existing government agencies that are becoming increasingly cash-strapped, understaffed and often lack modern capabilities. These factors, in addition to workforce reductions and changing regulatory expectations, make management of expanding workloads a challenge.
With this in mind, Blue Prism offers federal agencies a “digital workforce” of software robots that helps them automate and scale mission critical processes via AI, machine learning, intelligent automation and sentiment analysis. As the leading RPA software provider, Blue Prism makes government agencies’ business operations more agile and cost-effective by augmenting their existing human workforce. This new GSA Schedule underscores Blue Prism’s commitment to the public sector and its support of the overall mission of government.
“Securing our GSA Schedule is another step forward for the Blue Prism Government Solutions team in building our reputation as a leader in public sector RPA,” said Jim Fawcett, Vice President of Blue Prism Government Solutions. “We are experiencing strong demand for Blue Prism’s RPA software in the government market, and this vehicle makes it much easier for our agency customers to acquire the software on very favorable terms.”
RPA helps federal agencies modernize, increase overall efficiencies and improve the quality of interactions with their citizens through automation. This empowers employees to leverage “digital workers” to manage certain tasks/applications within an organization – such as help desk, finance and human resources – enabling human employees to focus on higher-value activities.
Blue Prism’s public-sector practice is designed to enable quick and easy RPA deployments across federal, state and local government agencies, via its broad partner network including the likes of Accenture Federal, Appian, Booz Allen Hamilton, Deloitte, EY, Guidehouse (formerly PwC Public Sector), IBM and KPMG. Through this network of partners, Blue Prism is helping the government create the workforce for the 21st Century.
