ScottMadden, Inc., a general management consulting firm, recently partnered with ADP, a leading provider of human resources management software and services, to host a webcast focused on implementing robotic process automation (RPA).
RPA has been a significant game changer for organizations and can yield substantial operational benefits. While many are considering the technology and others are piloting it, you may not know how to get started. There’s a lot of hype out there on the web, but there’s also some practical “straight talk” you need to understand the journey you are embarking on.
What is RPA and how can it make a difference? Is it right for your organization? And, if so, are you prepared? During the session, Brad DeMent, partner and finance and accounting practice lead at ScottMadden, reviewed this innovative transformation tool, while ADP shared its own case study. Attendees learned practical tips for selecting processes, determining IT needs, developing robots, and establishing a sustainable governance model.
“There are many RPA marketing myths that must be navigated by the newcomer. The best way to cut through these myths is to perform a small RPA process pilot and move it to production. The companies we have helped develop RPA pilots for have learned what IT infrastructure is required, what skillsets are needed, how much licenses cost, and what types of licenses are needed. More importantly, when we help companies point RPA pilots to production, we learn what role HR must play in managing change, and what governance roles must be in place to sustain an RPA program,” said Mr. DeMent.
