Increasingly, disruptive technology is playing a critical role in transforming finance capability. In response to this, business leaders are recognising the opportunities and challenges a digital transformation of their business can deliver.

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is software that can be easily programmed or instructed by end users to perform high-volume, repeatable, rules-based tasks. It automates the logical transfer of data within processes quickly and accurately, freeing up valuable resources from mundane tasks.
