harmeen mehta

Reggie Twigg

Director of Product Marketing, Data Capture, ABBYY

Organizations need AI to improve the way they understand customers, gain insight into their processes and operations, and to proactively identify potential business challenges and opportunities. However, while AI in the enterprise has lots of potential it often lacks a clear focus on use cases and benefits. This session will outline how Content Intelligence is AI for documents, where unstructured content is turned into structured, meaningful information that can be processed and acted upon. The session will highlight how organizations can transition to higher value AI use cases improving operations and the customer experience by incorporating content intelligence “skills” into their robotic process automation (RPA) software robots making them smarter, while forming the foundation for intelligent automation.

CMO, Celonis

RPA isn’t always straight forward. Lack of clear processes, poor visibility and confusion over where automation potential lies, can cause bottlenecks and slow-down even the most enthusiastic project team. Advanced organizations such as Siemens, Vodafone or Merck are combining RPA with the Intelligent Business Cloud to identify opportunities for automation, check process conformity and benchmark internally. All this helps ease implementation and demonstrate the value of your digital transformation project in clear metrics and cost savings. This session discusses how you can transform the way you operate to enhance process performance, mobilize internal stakeholders and save significant time and money.

USING ROBOTICS IN FINANCE AND ACCOUNTING TO INCREASE EFFICIENCY BY 50%

speaker Ann Furlong FCCA, Director, APAC Customer Team and Global Enablement, BlackLine

Robotic process automation (RPA) can automate manual tasks, manage workflow, and standardise finance and accounting (F&A) processes across complex organisations and IT landscapes. Organisations utilising RPA and finance automation within their F&A operations have been able to:

  • Automate accounting and finance processes up to 80%
  • Increase accounting productivity by 50%
  • Improve shared service centre efficiency by as much as 75%.

RPA, rather than ushering in the robot rebellion, will free CFOs and their teams to finally do what they’re meant to be doing – performing analysis, advising the business, and providing impactful financial data to shape their organisations’ future. At this session you will gain insight into the technologies driving the future of finance. Learn how to separate RPA fact from fiction so you can prepare for finance automation transformation and build a robotic accounting department.
