UK-headquartered robotic process automation software company Blue Prism has announced an agreement to acquire intelligent automation platform provider Thoughtonomy.

Announcing the agreement on Thursday, Blue Prism said the acquisition would advance the company’s cloud strategy with a turnkey SaaS offering available across market verticals and into mid-tier enterprises worldwide.

Blue Prism says the acquisition, expected to close by the end of July, will see its connected-RPA platform distributed and supported as a turnkey SaaS offering, helping accelerate the deployment of digital workers across market verticals and into mid-tier enterprises worldwide.

Thoughtonomy’s secure SaaS solution leverages Microsoft Azure, to enable an on demand virtual workforce and robust intelligent automation platform.

“This acquisition joins the power of Blue Prism’s connected-RPA platform with Thoughtonomy’s SaaS capabilities, allowing customers to accelerate automation projects more easily to drive improved productivity and customer experiences, without needing to set up a dedicated infrastructure to support their program,” Blue Prism said in a statement.

"The acquisition of Thoughtonomy will support a broader strategy to strengthen our portfolio with cloud offerings that deliver value and enhance customer experience,” says Alastair Bathgate, co-founder and chief executive, Blue Prism.

“Thoughtonomy brings valuable knowledge and experience in the development and implementation of cloud-based intelligent digital workers, with a successful track record delivering its solutions to mid-tier enterprises in a number of industry verticals complementary to the areas of the market Blue Prism has served.”

Terry Walby, chief executive and founder of Thoughtonomy, said, “We’ve been working with Blue Prism since our foundation in 2013, and we’ve built out our unique SaaS and intelligent automation capabilities to leverage their best in class RPA software.

“Together as leaders we plan to broaden and simplify access to the most advanced digital workforce capabilities on the planet.”

Blue Prism established a sales and customer support office in Sydney in 2017 as part of a strategy to expanding its presence in the Asia Pacific region.
