AXON Ivy has entered into a technology partnership with leading RPA vendor Blue Prism
AXON Ivy has partnered with Blue Prism to offer an end-to-end digital transformation solution. The Axon.ivy Digital Business Platform combined with Blue Prism RPA enables seamless collaboration between human employees and digital workers.
Imagine this payment processing scenario. An invoice arrives by e-mail, after which an employee checks it and enters it into the ERP system. It is then forwarded for approval after which payment is processed. It’s a simple process with many individual steps. All these steps, from entering, checking, and approving to initiating payment, can be automated. An employee only needs to be involved if error messages are reported during the validation process. Invoice processing is performed by Blue Prism's Robotic Process Automation solution, while the exception handling workflow is automated by the Axon.ivy Digital Business Platform. This is just one of many processes that can be optimized by combining RPA and Digital Process Automation (DPA).
"Digital workers" such as Blue Prism's software robots perform monotonous and repetitive tasks such as data entry. In return, employees can devote themselves to more demanding tasks which require human decision-making. In this way, "quick wins" can be achieved. The probability of errors is reduced, the speed of innovation is improved, and creative problem-solving in the company is fostered.
Digital workers are able to use AI and machine learning to learn and optimize their processes. Furthermore, RPA can be extended by DPA to achieve true end-to-end automation within the enterprise. In order to progress beyond the automation of individual tasks to entire processes, you need a DPA solution like the Axon.ivy Digital Business Platform. The platform focuses on optimizing complex processes with many intermediate steps and stakeholders. When both DPA and RPA technologies are combined, automated subtasks can be embedded and orchestrated. The Axon.ivy Digital Business Platform is integrated with Blue Prism via a plug-and-play connection. Digital workers, humans, and systems work together seamlessly. This enables consistent and complete end-to-end digitization.
