In this session, we will explore why robotics process automation (RPA) is important to the accounting, audit, tax, and advisory profession and learn what can be automated with RPA by looking at specific use cases where RPA has been applied and proven successful. Then, you will learn how to build a bot through an interactive, gamified experience.
Bring your tablet or laptop so you can play the game (a link will be provided) and build your own bot. Your goal in this game is to save your human team and client from mental exhaustion by building a bot that automates highly repetitive, routine, and voluminous tasks humans typically perform. The more efficient you make the bot, the more time and energy you will save your team to focus on other tasks that require human thinking and judgement.
