BP3, a global leader in designing and delivering business process automation programs, today announced it has completed the acquisition of specialist automation consultancy Extra Technology. The acquisition will strengthen BP3’s position in a rapidly growing intelligent automation market in EMEA and the US, with Extra Technology having proven itself to be resilient to market changes over recent years.
The acquisition of one of the global leaders in workload automation is the seventh in BP3’s history and plays a key role in BP3’s growth strategy, ensuring BP3 remains on course to become the leading provider of intelligent automation services globally.
The addition of Extra Technology’s unparalleled workload automation capabilities and expertise, backed by a team of fully-certified experts, many whom come from workload automation vendor and senior IT manager backgrounds, will allow BP3 to significantly expand its current offering.
The synergy between BP3’s offering and client base and that of Extra Technology will allow customers of both companies to benefit from a broader portfolio of top-tier workload automation and intelligent automation solutions, as well as intelligent document processing, process
automation, robotic process automation (RPA) and artificial intelligence.
The acquisition will also provide customers with support for additional software packages and access to an increased number of experts in the field of automation and artificial intelligence.
Together, these expanded capabilities will allow customers to scale and reap the rewards of automation faster, while cementing BP3’s expanded presence in the EMEA market and allowing it to broaden its appeal to US-based customers.
In addition to Extra Technology’s robust workload automation business, BP3 will acquire Extra Technology’s 20 employees and London office, with all employees at both companies expected to remain in their current roles.
