Participants of this course will be eligible to apply to implement RPA in the firm using funding from the RPA Adoption Support Scheme



Note: This course was previously known as Robotic Process Automation (RPA) for Accountants and Finance Professionals.

Programme Objective

The accounting sector is commonly plagued by voluminous work, manual and repetitive processes. Accounting practices are also under pressure to cut overhead costs in these trying times.  

RPA is a simple and intuitive tool which can help reduce inefficiencies and inaccuracies of repetitive mundane tasks due to human error and limitation. Anyone without prior programming knowledge can easily pick up the skill to create and deploy an RPA robot to perform tasks such as data entry of journal entries into the accounting system, preparation of reports, and automating repetitive processes done by employees on a daily basis. 
 
This course aims to equip participants with the skills to easily create simple and useful RPA scripts to identify such processes and implement automation on accounting and finance processes. Participants do not need to have prior coding or programming knowledge. At the end of the course, participants will be able to automate their own manual and repetitive processes, freeing up time for more value added tasks.
