As RPA picks up speed, CFOs need tech fluency

Though process automation is a staple in business, adding robotics to the mix is how efficiency, accuracy and cost reduction pick up value and speed.

RPA can handle numerous functions — repetitive, compliance-oriented and historical. Staff time, focus and efforts can be repurposed to gain insight on future expectations and solve client-facing issues such as product mix, margin and pricing.

  • Greater efficiency
  • Increased accuracy and throughput
  • Reduced costs
  • Improved compliance
  • More valued focus of staff time

To determine the best uses of RPA at your organization, begin with an assessment. Choose business functions to examine, then overlay characteristics applicable for RPA. Prioritize the robotic processes that can deliver optimal benefits.

To participate in the assessment and in building the technological infrastructure, the finance department must be fluent about automation technologies. This skill set will be required as CFOs and CIOs work closely to develop functions around innovation.
