Facilitated Learning (F2F)
Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is the application of technology that allows employees in a company to configure software or a “robot” to capture and interpret existing applications for processing a transaction, manipulating data, triggering responses and communicating with other digital system. Any company that uses labour on a large scale for general knowledge process work, where people are performing high-volume, highly transactional process functions, will boost their capabilities to save money and time with RPA software.
Just as industrial robots are remaking the manufacturing industry by creating higher production rates and improved quality, RPA “robots” are revolutionising the way we think about and administer business processes, IT support processes, workflow processes, remote infrastructure and back-office work. RPA provides dramatic improvements in accuracy and cycle time, and helps to increase productivity in transaction processing while elevating the nature of work by removing people from dull, repetitive tasks. In particular, this course will show how businesses can automate some of the internal processes to bring about an improvement in productivity and get employees to move up the work value chain.
Participants with basic knowledge and practical skills in using RPA will be able to gain more knowledge and skills to implement RPA for complex automated operations and processes in their organisation/area of work.
