The Mera Dinner

Topic: Robotic Process Automation and The Future of Finance

Over the last 12 months, some of the greatest innovation in business has happened at the intersection of finance and technology. Robotic Process Automation (RPA) was introduced into the modern business world, along with always advancing cloud technology and finance process automation tools. Finance and accounting leaders are embracing the evolutionary benefits of RPA and creating a culture of continuous improvement that empowers employees.

  • How widely is RPA currently deployed throughout finance and accounting operations?
  • In what ways is this impacting the role of the CFO and finance professionals?
