Digital Operations Through AI-Driven Automation
  • Brian Briggs - Global Head of Presales, WorkFusion

The lifespan of established companies is declining while born-digital companies take market share and create new markets. Why is this? It isn’t just that they’re small and agile. It’s that they’re built on technology designed to continuously learn and adapt, which makes their people better equipped to make better decisions and execute faster. Leading enterprises in every industry are using AI-driven process automation to digitize their back and middle operations to provide the same speed, accuracy and efficiency of service delivery as born-digital companies. In this presentation, you will learn:

  • The 5 operational problems that limit growth and compromise customer service
  • How AI-driven RPA works within an operation
  • Case studies in banking, insurance and healthcare
  • The critical capabilities to look for in business process automation software
