How robotic process automation can empower CIOs

Proactive business leaders in the asset finance sector should assess the impact of robotic process automation (RPA) and its potential to revolutionise traditionally manual processes. RPA involves the use of software to replace business tasks that are repeatable, effectively mimicking the employee, who can then be deployed on tasks that provide more value to a business. Roles suitable for RPA might include gathering data from different sources or producing reports; replacing manual work with automated processes helps to manage business process complexity, increase efficiencies, and dramatically reduce costs.
