London – Partnership Combines Digital Workforce and Intelligent Document Processing Capabilities into Fully Managed SaaS Offering for Customers
Further enabling easy and flexible access to the latest intelligent document process capabilities, convedo today announced a partnership with Blue Prism (AIM: PRSM), a global leader in Robotic Process Automation (RPA) software. The partnership will see convedo’s Intelligent Capture Cloud solution and Blue Prism’s connectedRPA integrated and delivered into a single fully managed Software as a Service (SaaS) offering.
This offering will make it easier for customers to automate and analyze content-centric processes involving images, documents, physical mail, screen scraping, machine and handprint, barcodes and other communications. Unstructured data is handled effortlessly through convedo’s Intelligent Capture Cloud solution, which is powered by IRIS technology from Canon, and then handed off to a Blue Prism digital worker that can read, understand and contextualize the data to be executed upon in a process. convedo focuses on applying Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies such as OCR and machine learning technologies to identify and classify content and extract data – all while continuously learning from human input.
"We are bringing new intelligent automation capabilities to the cloud with Blue Prism which will help accelerate customer adoption of our respective technologies,” says Sascha Cutura, CEO at convedo. "We were looking to partner with the proven leader in the RPA market which is why we selected Blue Prism. Our enterprise customers are looking to explore what’s possible with a digital workforce and we’ve delivered a flexible SaaS offering. This is truly a better together story. Working with Blue Prism will be a game changer for us.”
Henning Krause, Vice-President, Channel Partnerships EMEA for IRIS Canon, adds, “we are delighted with our partnership with convedo in the area of RPA. Together, we strive to optimize document and information automation in ways that were unimaginable in the past.”
Organizations now have access to a fully managed, customizable intelligent automation solution being delivered in an easier more consumptive SaaS model. This offering gives customers more flexibility in the way they:
- Automate and analyze content-centric processes involving images, documents, texts, communications, emails, handwritten and paper letters
- Use AI and machine learning to deliver high-quality OCR and self-learning capabilities
- Sustain, measure and adapt digitalization processes over time
Users can buy a traditional on premises or cloud-based licensing model or opt to go with a no upfront licensing costs. They can buy a per-scan, per click, or volume of scans to use over a 12-month period, managed monthly. As a result, organizations can have a SaaS program where data is uploaded to a web portal, gets processed and pushed out locally installed.
