Join Hampton Roads Women in Tech for our September event hosted by Ferguson Enterprises, LLC!

As the hype around robotic process automation (RPA) accelerates, the acronym RPA is gaining broader recognition. Automating business processes isn’t new, but recent advances in RPA platforms make it easier to implement – and easier to see a solid return on investment quickly. RPA is best for automating transactional processes where there are repetitive swivel-chair tasks with structured data. Join HRWIT with three pros that are well on their way to RPA and Beyond.
