Technology continues to reshape our business environment at a rapid pace, and accounting and finance are by no means immune. The role of accountants is changing, and it is vital that you are well-equipped to support businesses.

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) eliminates the need to do menial tasks, allowing accountants to escape the ‘daily grind’ and develop higher value-add skills instead. The modern-day accountants will have to embrace automation, but that will make their work more interesting.

More and more companies are relying on RPA tools such as UiPath to streamline their manual and time-consuming processes. While RPA tools can automate processes in many different areas, Finance and/or Accounting can certainly benefit from RPA in capturing and transforming data, making rule-based decisions, and interacting between applications.

This hands-on workshop will help Finance and Accounting professionals without coding and/or programming background develop the basic skills required to start automating processes using UiPath.

With his background in Accounting and Tax, the Trainer will be using data sets and processes familiar to Finance, Accounting, and Tax professionals in the examples and hands-on exercises. This will facilitate learning and allow you to directly apply your knowledge learned in the workplace.

What you will learn

By the end of the workshop, you will :

  • Be able to automate data capture and transformation processes
