Thoughtonomy deal key to sales growth

Blue Prism has invested heavily in organic and inorganic growth, with the RPA specialist acquiring Thoughtonomy earlier this year in a deal valued at around $100 million.

The 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.

The deal is an important step in Blue Prism being able to target mid-tier enterprises which will help revenue growth and assist the stock in making further gains.
