Webinar Recording

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) for Small and Medium Businesses (SMB)

Date: Wednesday, September 27, 2017
Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
Like all companies, the small and midsize business (SMB) encounters unique operational challenges to successfully operate in today’s global economy. Some of the current business challenges for SMBs include managing uncertainty, reducing operational costs, increasing business growth, increasing profitability, attracting and retaining new customers, improving workforce productivity, and improving quality of products and processes. These same challenges are being overcome by large global corporations with Robotic Process Automation (RPA).

Historically the cost to deploy RPA solutions was prohibitive for SMB companies. However, the tide is turning as the cost to deploy and maintain these systems has come down significantly. As a result SMBs are well-positioned to take advantage of the various benefits of RPA and can achieve the same benefits as a much larger company.

With RPA implementation, SMBs can quickly see productive and streamlined business activities, improved customer service, and great scalability opportunities. With RPA the SMB can reduce costs, better address customer needs, and more efficiently respond to changing market conditions. With RPA SMBs will be able to reach a more level playing field with global enterprises and will be able significantly reduce the competition gap between themselves and their competitors.

In this session we will share several examples of RPA solutions that we have deployed for our SMB customers that have yielded an enormous ROI.
After attending this event you will be able to:
Understand how SMBs can level the playing field with global organizations through Robotic Process Automation (RPA)
See several examples of RPA solutions deployed in SMB firms
Learn the benefits of automating your finance function through RPA
Understand considerations an SMB company must factor in to deploy RPA in a strategic and efficient manner
