The independent community for disruptive business and technology leaders
Gartner cited “hyperautomation” as one of the top strategic technology trends to look out for in 2020. Indeed, as organisations see cost savings of up to 20% from automation, the need to rapidly automate low value business processes is a crucial tactic for opening up opportunities for revenue, cutting costs and enhancing customer experience.
Join digital leaders to examine the benefits of sales order automation and the best practices for overcoming implementation challenges, as well as to understand the role that automation has to play in building long-term business resilience.
