Blue Prism and RBC bring RPA solutions to UK charity Mencap

Royal Bank of Canada along with Robotic Process Automation (RPA) provider Blue Prism have deployed an RPA software at UK-based learning disability charity, Mencap in a bid to assist in the automation of daily transition of data from spreadsheets to the charity’s HR platform Resource Link.

Alex Davies, Director at RBC, and Jeff Howarth, Lead Robotics Developer at RBC, assisted Mencap in the creation of a Proof of Concept to illustrate the solution’s full potential to Mencap.

Alex said. “We’re delighted to see that the agile solutions we continue building for clients internally are showing equally positive impacts among community partners like Mencap. RBC is committed to its communities and philanthropic activities, but this project demonstrates a totally new way for us and for other commercial enterprises to partner with charities. We also believe that a partnership between a bank and a charity to deliver RPA is a UK first.”

Implementing RPA, as RBC states, has allowed for the identification of time-consuming and repetitive tasks in various business lines that could be optimized with the system. The collaboration allows Mencap to capitalise on RBC’s resources and capabilities around RPA.

Matt Juden-Bloomfield, Head of RPA & Global For Good Lead at BluePrism said, “We’re really proud to be involved in this opportunity and excited to help Mencap leverage our market-leading connected RPA product, in order to help them unleash the human potential within their business, by freeing up precious hours and resources in a critical area of the charity, HR. We are now tailoring a non-profit offering off the back of this pilot to help other charities realise the benefits of RPA.”

Blue Prism’s board will be piloting a non-profit strategy for helping firms harness capabilities of robotics.
