The University of British Columbia (UBC) aims to continuously strive for operational excellence and enhance the experience of its faculty, staff and students. The implementation of robotic process automation (RPA) is a step towards achieving these goals. This interactive session will explore the implementation of RPA at UBC. The objective of the session is to provide information to teams considering RPA or looking to expand their knowledge on the subject.

RPA is a rapidly growing technology that allows organizations to automate repetitive tasks, freeing up time and resources for strategic activities. At UBC, RPA has been used to streamline and automate a range of tasks, including data entry, processing, and data validation. This has improved efficiency, while reducing errors and saving money. Outline of this session:

  • Overview of RPA technology and its benefits
  • Overview of technical and resource requirements for deploying RPA
  • Discussion of the implementation plan and timeline for RPA at UBC
  • Assessment of risks and challenges associated with RPA deployment
  • Case study and success stories
  • Next steps and the path forward

The session will provide an opportunity for attendees to ask questions and provide feedback on UBC’s implementation. Through participating in the session, attendees will gain a comprehensive understanding of RPA implementation at UBC and benefits. Our speakers will share how  the introduction of RPA at UBC has resulted in a substantial enhancement of operational efficiency and has positively influenced the overall staff experience.
