Backstop Support Services

Backstop – a noun. First definition, to stand behind something as support. Second, to stand behind someone for reinforcements. Third, an emergency precaution/ last resort. Whatever the definition, a backstop is present to prevent undesired or unintended happenings.


Your circumstances shift over time as you adapt and scale intelligent robotic process automation (RPA/IPA). As such, you need a quick resource to access answers from true subject matter expert practitioners. Connect with our experts to find out if Backstop is right for you.


We believe that the RPA/IPA programs should never lose momentum due to unanswered questions or a shortage of expertise. Our Backstop Services offering is based on a simple concept. It provides whatever you need, whenever you need it.

How it is delivered

Backstop is a minimum 6-month or more commitment for hours, typically a quarter of an FTE. You can renew Backstop year after year. And, most of our clients do.

Our approach encourages and drives interactions to ensure our clients receive optimal value. Backstops are generally performed remotely. However, we will come on-site as needed for executive or steering committee meetings. If your needs outgrow the Backstop approach, we work with our clients to shift the work into an advisory project.
