Agenda Day 1

8:15 AM Intelligent Automation – Design, Development and Delivery

According to SSON’s 2018 Report, over 50% of European SSCs have yet to start to test or implement RPA, despite all of the hype surrounding this exponentially growing industry. Given the enterprise-wide benefits, efficiency savings, and increases in productivity associated with automating mundane, repetitive tasks, what is holding them back?

In this session, learn how:
•RPA should be considered in the wider context of your intelligent automation strategy
•How to kickstart “digital” – understanding what to prioritise when it comes to automation
•“Bot PR” – the importance of getting buy-in from your human workforce, and how to tackle the “fear factor” associated with automation
•Training, development, and setting up a centre of excellence – how to harmonise your human and bot teams
•Do processes need to be standardised and simplified before you can “take the plunge”?

Agenda Day 2

3:25 PM Transforming the Finance Function of the Future for the Digitalised, GBS Age

Discover how Ingram Micro, 45bn turnover technology company, has transformed its finance shared service centre into a GBS model with 80% process coverage. Discover how they kicked off the SSC journey with a lift-and-shift approach but without a global mandate, but how, in the last two years, they have established a clear mission, strategy and vision which is connected to culture and end-to-end processes ownership and accountability.  Understand their plans for further standardisation, further bot automation (targeting 100 by the end of 2019) and their future plans to establish GBS as a strategically imperative part of the business.
