Everything you need to know to get started with Robotic Process Automation (RPA)

Posted on Posted in Chapter News, Meetings

Session Summary:

Want to learn more about Robotic Process Automation (RPA)?  Want to make your customers happy faster and with more accuracy?  How about being able to get to those tasks you just don’t have time for today?  RPA can help free you from the mundane work that ties you down, it will improve accuracy, consistency, and get the work done with or without user intervention!

During this session we will explore Robotic Process Automation (RPA), explaining what it is, when to use it, types of RPA software, benefits, and strategy for implementation.   At a high level, RPA is a software that can automate anything that a person does on a computer (keyboard and mouse clicks), as long as any decision that needs to be made in the process are programmable.  It works best with repetitive processes such as data entry, financial processes, application processes, etc.  It can even work across applications!

Meet our Speaker:

Angie Dahl has been in the IT profession for 26 years, working in all aspects of IT from second level support to infrastructure to continuous improvement for IT, to an IT business systems analyst.  Her passion lies in servicing her customers through automation and continuous improvement.  Angie was a continuous improvement analyst for about 5 years prior to starting to work on RPA implementations for the last 3 years.

Angie has experience as an IT business systems analyst for all functions and business units in both implementing and supporting RPA.  She has built up the processes, governance, and support for RPA in two different companies, one using Blue Prism and Automation Anywhere, the other using UiPath.

Angie leads a UiPath RPA user group for the Fox Valley and would welcome you to join the conversation.  The user group is very informal and hosts topics of interest for the user group.  Members of the group are part of a team at their company that supports UiPath from an implementation and governance perspective.  We meet virtually on a quarterly basis.  If you are interested in joining the group or presenting to the group, please contact Angie at [email protected].
