Product Details

The future is here.

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is reshaping the accounting and finance profession. 40% of transactional accounting work is expected to be automated by 2020 and predicted to touch 230 million knowledge workers, 9% of the global workforce, according to McKinsey Research.

Driven by the need to stay competitive with decreased costs and increased efficiency, RPA is quickly making a significant impact on the profession. Companies no longer think about "if" but "when" to implement RPA.

As a strategic business partner, you will be affected by RPA. Whether you sponsor, drive, initiate, or manage RPA strategy, this webcast will prepare you for the future. You will get an overview of RPA, learn how automation is transforming businesses, and understand how RPA provides a significant competitive advantage. You will also learn key considerations and steps needed to begin building your RPA strategy, including how to address the cultural shift needed to overcome the "fear of robots" and understand the critical role human intelligence plays to ensure a successful strategy.
