“We are bringing new intelligent automation capabilities to the cloud with Blue Prism which help will 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.
