About the Topic:

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is not a physical robot. RPA is a software configured “robot” that performs structured, repetitive and rule-based computer-based tasks and offloads human workforce for higher value tasks. In this seminar, you will get an overview on what and how RPA can help on back-office processes of a company. I will share what factors affect the adoption of RPA, and recommend tips for implementation, and the experience of adopting RPA in a company.
