ABeam Consulting Ltd.
ABeam Consulting Ltd.

RPA, Robotic Process Automation, is attracting interest as a practical method of coping with decreases in the working population and of carrying out work-style reforms. It is rapidly being adopted by companies of all sizes across industries. Having formed specialized departments have completed proof-of-concept (PoC), the most advanced larger companies are now moving to put RPA into full-fledged operation. When RPA is implemented with business processes that span multiple departments or involve the handling of a range of personal and other information, it becomes necessary to ensure more robust security than ever. More sophisticated solutions of the kind that can support automation of large-scale complex processes also become essential.
Now ABeam Consulting is combining the knowledge and expertise it has accumulated from its own proven track record of successful BPR and RPA project implementation with Blue Prism® products, which feature highly evolved functionality and a strong reputation among major global corporations and financial institutions. This combination will enable ABeam Consulting to better meet the needs of companies that wish to implement RPA on a large scale, and to implement processes in a more secure environment. In addition to Blue Prism® implementation, we provide comprehensive support that answers the needs of large-scale implementation across multiple organizational structures. Services include help with the formulation of governance rules, as well as insourcing the development, construction of internal control functions.
While pricing for RPA BPR support services using Blue Prism® vary according to the needs of the customer and the scope of implementation, service fees begin at about 3 million yen, including Blue Prism® implementation, selection of automation targets, robot design, development and testing. (not including licensing fees). ABeam Consulting plans to proactively present this product to companies considering large-scale implementation and high levels of security, targeting to provide service to 30 companies by the end of fiscal 2018.
