SS&C | Blue Prism® Desktop is an application that allows you to run pre-configured Blue Prism processes which often involve the automation of other software applications on your computer. You can choose from a list of processes that have been made available to you in Desktop. Some of these may prompt you to enter additional information at the start of, or during, the process.

On‑screen messages will guide you as you use Desktop, and will tell you what to do next if something doesn't work as expected. If you need more help with Desktop, please contact your system administrator.
