Process Automation & Digitization

The digitization of the finance function gives rise to not only major challenges, but also considerable potential. The successful integration of such new technologies is developing more and more into a decisive competitive factor. CFOs, for example, simplify and accelerate their processes many times over with digital workflows. Many standardized processes can now be automated to a high degree, even in complex and heterogeneous system landscapes, with the help of Robotic Process Automation (RPA) or initial methods involving artificial intelligence (AI).

Repetitive and error-prone processes should be a thing of the past thanks to Robotic Process Automation (RPA). The application of these software solutions is already part of everyday life in large companies and even smaller companies can benefit massively from their application in order to make processes faster, more stable and more cost-effective.

RPA is based on the use of software robots, which imitate the clicks and inputs of employees in order to execute the processes fully automatically. RPA serves not only as an interface between different systems, but also as an opportunity to save costs and shorten process times, so that employees can concentrate on the value-adding tasks in the company.
