SINGAPORE and HONG KONG, Aug. 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Blue Prism (AIM: PRSM), today announced the opening of its Asia-Pacific headquarters in Singapore and new offices in Hong Kong, providing local sales and consulting support to help meet increasing demands for its Digital Workforce platform.

According to IDC Financial Insights estimates, RPA will be in use in at least 40 percent of Asia-Pacific banks and insurance companies by 2020. In addition, the latest IDC FutureScape predictions state that use of RPA enhanced by artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities will grow threefold by 2021. These market adoption numbers are being supported and validated by the strong customer growth Blue Prism is experiencing in the region.

"We are the local provider of choice for intelligent automation and operational transformation in Asia. The Blue Prism ecosystem in Asia continues to grow with local language support, employees across Asia, partners in-region and multiple successful Digital Workforce deployments," said Martin Flood, Blue Prism's EVP of Global Sales.  "The new office locations will strengthen and augment our existing capabilities in region, including our expansion in Japan, India and Australia. As the market leaders serving an estimated 1,000 organizations worldwide, we are excited about our commitment to customers in the Asia Pacific region."

Blue Prism's Digital Workforce augments, supports and assists humans to increase productivity, improve experience, and deliver true operational agility for business-wide RPA deployments. It helps organizations automate and scale business processes via AI, machine learning, intelligent automation and sentiment analysis. The open nature of this platform provides reusable, modular software objects that can be configured with minimal intervention from developers, allowing business users, process excellence engineers and subject matter experts at leading global enterprises to quickly deploy Blue Prism's digital workers (software robots) that automate and complete increasingly complex tasks through a single platform.

Blue Prism also eliminates vendor lock-in by providing access to the best of breed AI technologies and Intelligent Automation skills through the company's Technology Alliance Program (TAP). Unlike uncontrolled desktop scripting and macro recorders, Blue Prism is driving enterprise RPA adoption through a business led and IT-endorsed, methodology and architecture that enables long-term success, true digital transformation and overall lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
