Software Robots Pioneer Blue Prism Debuts on the London Stock Exchange’s AIM Market


Blue Prism, the pioneering developer of enterprise Robotic Process Automation (RPA) software, today announced its debut on AIM of the London Stock Exchange (LSE). The first developer of software robots to trade on the public markets, Blue Prism, working closely with its global network of partners, grew 35% last year and has deployments with more than 74 customers, including a number of the world’s largest banks, insurers, utilities, healthcare, telecommunications, service providers and other regulated industries. The initial public offering (IPO) will allow Blue Prism to support its global growth plans and enhance its profile within the RPA marketplace.

“Today’s milestone follows a successful year for the company, and marks a shift in acceptance for software robots as a mainstream choice for the enterprise digital workforce,” said Alastair Bathgate, co-founder and CEO of Blue Prism. “Software robots have been deployed successfully and strategically by large, blue chip organizations that have derived tremendous value from this new solution to the labor market, it’s not science fiction.”

First commercialized in 2008, Blue Prism’s software robots are trained to automate routine back-office clerical tasks. The company’s enterprise-grade software enables the automation of manual, rules-based, administrative processes to create a more agile, cost effective and accurate back-office. The principal market opportunity for Blue Prism’s software robots lies within the increasing adoption of RPA by large enterprises with significant back-office operations, in applications like CRM, ERP, HR, billing, claims management, customer service, financial management and transaction processing.

As a pioneer in the space, Blue Prism coined the term “robotic automation” in 2012 to describe software robots used to automate clerical processes in the business services industries and the company has been a driving force to define product standards expected by large enterprise; the company worked with its early customers to develop the commercial requirements for enterprise compliance, resilience, repeatability, scalability and security of RPA technology that are considered standards of today’s deployments. It is this “industrialization” process that has enabled the concept of software robots to be considered a mainstream labor alternative for enterprise back-office work.
