This Tech Talk will introduce you to Robotic Process Automation (RPA), exploring an overview of the selection of business processes (candidates) for automation and its benefits. Our RPA evangelists will go over the technologies available in the market, as well as our home-grown “Hammers and Screwdrivers” ideology. They will also cover our delivery methodology and explain how a “Strategy First” approach helps setup a strong RPA maturity model. This first session will be followed by sessions on RPA in HCM, SCM, and Finance.
This presentation is all about the transformative powers of automation in Human Capital Management with RPA. By creating a competitive edge, it can transform the Human Resources department from being seen as a cost center to being the main forward driving force of the organization. Michael & Hari will discuss by attracting the right talent and retaining existing talent, automation shifts the focus of HR to building workplace experiences. They will also highlight a sample process and demonstrate how a hybrid automation handles this process.
The integration of RPA in Supply Chain Management and Logistics is helping streamline processes, efficiently saving organizations on their budget. This area not only benefits from traditional process automation, but also by increasing productivity through automated invoice/document processing and vendor management. Michael & Hari will also dive into how these benefits have been realized during the current pandemic through Machine Learning techniques, in supply-demand planning, and inventory management.
Finance and Accounting was one of the earliest areas to adopt RPA rule-based processes. Not only is it better, faster, and cheaper than alternatives, but it also allows you to manage risks and meets compliance requirements. The scalability within RPA in terms of adapting new rules, deleting obsolete items, and handling complexity makes RPA an attractive buy in today’s digital finance world.
