Blue Prism® announced the availability of Blue Prism Service Assist on Amazon Web Services (AWS) – a comprehensive, no-code, intelligent automation contact center solution that combines intelligent digital workers and native AWS services so enterprises can deliver faster, more efficient, and more engaging customer experiences.
Blue Prism Service Assist for AWS combines the capabilities of Amazon Connect and Amazon ElastiCache with Blue Prism’s Service Assist to create a scalable intelligent automation contact center offering that expedites the time it takes to deliver across the entire customer journey for a simplified agent and customer experience.
Optimized for quick deployment and extensible with Amazon Connect, the Service Assist for AWS solution is available in AWS Marketplace and is pre-configured to simplify and speed deployment for Amazon Connect customers to augment their capabilities with Blue Prism’s digital workforce. Invoke, Inc., a longtime, triple-certified Blue Prism partner, will be the first implementation partner to offer this solution in AWS Marketplace.
How it works
- Blue Prism Service Assist connects Amazon Connect to any front-office and back-office systems, including cloud and previously inaccessible legacy mainframes. Service Assist’s unique architecture enables digital workers to simultaneously multi-task and support agents with attended automation, freeing them from repetitive tasks and allowing them to focus on creating better customer experiences.
- The native integration with Amazon ElastiCache ensures that enterprise data is available nearly real-time to digital workers to further speed up automation. Benefits include reduced average handling times (AHT) and abandon call rates, an improved average speed of answer (ASA) rates, more calls handled per agent, decreased agent turnover, and reduced operating expenses.
Blue Prism has a complete library of native integrations with Amazon Textract, Amazon Rekognition, and Amazon Comprehend
Enterprises can also add powerful AWS artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) services to customer workflows. Blue Prism has a complete library of native integrations with Amazon Textract, Amazon Rekognition, and Amazon Comprehend for out-of-the-box integrations. Organizations can quickly scale cognitive workflows and easily add intelligent document processing, computer vision, and natural language processing.
"Service Assist for AWS combines intelligent automation and multiple API integrations with AWS for a solution that enables Blue Prism’s digital workers to assist and accelerate contact center transformation - instantly retrieving customer information in near real-time for every incoming call," said Madhu Raman, Worldwide Head of Intelligent Automation, AWS.
"Consumers want a more personalized, engaging, end-to-end digital experience – they don’t want to be put on hold. Service Assist for AWS streamlines contact center operations for a better experience and helps enterprises create value with every customer interaction," said Linda Dotts, Chief Partner Strategy Officer, Blue Prism.
"Using Service Assist technology on AWS enables us to deploy simple digital interactions to our staff globally, 24x7. The International arm of Fidelity Investments has been using the solution for more than two years, together with Blue Prism digital workers, accessing modern and legacy systems to automate repetitive work, allowing us to provide much better service to our customers,” said Karen Rooney, Head of Process Simplification & Optimization, Fidelity International.

Collaboration builds on the existing relationship with AWS and Blue Prism’s cloud-first intelligent automation strategy
The solution is ideal for enterprise contact centers with up to 25,000 agents where the value of cost savings and impact on customer satisfaction is important to the customer mission.
Contact centers that have seen the most value have a substantial investment in omnichannel technologies, as well as extensive KPI and SLA measurements for client satisfaction.
This expanded collaboration builds on the existing relationship with AWS and underscores Blue Prism’s cloud-first intelligent automation strategy – a three-pronged approach that includes flexible deployment to meet ever-evolving IT strategies; native integrations that combine process automation and smart workflows with cognitive technologies like machine learning, advanced analytics, natural language processing, and AI capabilities; and expanded delivery options for intelligent automation in the cloud that puts enterprises in control.
