Hollywood frequently will fantasize storylines of computers taking over the humans but the real power of robotics process automation (RPA) lies in augmenting processes. RPA “robots” or “bots” are transforming the way we think about business processes, IT support, workflow, and back-office work. Tasks that are redundant and has a well-defined process can potentially be a candidate for RPA which would empower accountants to focus on transactions that may require more analysis.
