Description

This course provides a concise overview of robotic process automation (RPA) -- technologies that conduct high-volume, repeatable tasks that previously required humans to perform. These "bots" can automatically log into applications, enter data, do calculations, complete tasks, make decisions based on predefined parameters, and log out. While still evolving, RPA applications have the potential to automate many accounting functions, transform business processes, and accelerate financial workflows. This event may be a rebroadcast of a live event and the instructor will be available to answer your questions during the event.
