If you’re a leader within shared services, you are increasingly being asked not just to reduce costs but to “give hours back” to the business and improve the speed and quality of service delivery. While the first wave of RPA was predominantly a narrowly deployed cost-cutting tool, technology advancements that pre-package solutions (e.g., AP, O2C, etc) and enable faster deployment and better scalability make RPA a more powerful capability for wider SS transformation. Bigger impact RPA requires some form of Center of Excellence (CoE) and a roadmap for scaling from early stage to maturity.

From this session you'll obtain:

1) A set of internal and vendor capabilities required by SS organizations at each of the 4 stages of RPA maturity

2) Best Practices for building the framework for your Target Operating Model

3) Lessons learned from client implementations, and how to apply common sense strategies right away
