Austin, TX – 19th June 2023: BP3 Global, a leader in designing and delivering business process automation solutions, today announced it has completed the acquisition of Cape Town based Intelligent Automation consultancy DigiBlu. The acquisition enables the combined organization to address the rapidly growing client demand for Intelligent Automation services in North America, Europe and Southern Africa.
DigiBlu, internationally recognized for its expertise in automating processes and innovating digital workforce solutions - including consumption based as-a-service models - assists clients across Africa and Europe. BP3’s offerings in Design, UI/UX, Intelligent Document Processing (IDP), Artificial Intelligence, Process Orchestration, Application Modernization, and Workload Automation will bring additional depth to the South African market.
“We are excited to welcome the DigiBlu team into the BP3 family. Our joint development centre offers a great opportunity in helping our clients transform their business and modernize critical applications. Together, DigiBlu and BP3 bring more focus, more foresight, and more follow-up in everything we do,” according to Scott Francis, CEO of BP3.
The transaction, BP3’s eighth acquisition and second since Horizon Capital’s investment in November 2021, represents a continuation of BP3’s strategy to become the leading provider of HyperAutomation services globally. DigiBlu’s team, a mix of experienced management consultants, process analysts and cutting-edge technologists specializing in Intelligent Automation, will be integrated into BP3. DigiBlu will continue to serve clients in Africa, as well as greatly expanding its Robotic Operations Center in Cape Town to provide remote delivery and digital operations for clients globally.
The synergies between BP3 and DigiBlu will enable clients of both companies to benefit from a broader portfolio of top-tier Intelligent Automation solutions and expertise to accelerate the impact of their own automation programs.
Scott Francis noted that “by combining DigiBlu and BP3, we’re creating an incredible opportunity to deepen our client impact in North America, Europe and Africa. We have great opportunities to go farther, faster, together.”

BP3 shares our passion for Intelligent Automation and for enabling transformational outcomes as demanded by our clients. We aspire to be a world leader in automating business processes, operating digital workforces, and by combining with BP3’s broad and deep suite of capabilities, along with their international footprint, we now have the scale to fully realize that vision. Between the cultural alignment and the unmatched expertize of the combined organization, I am confident we are entering an exciting new chapter for both organizations.”
