Webinar to explain how to get finance teams on board for automation


TreasuryONE’s Rudolph Janse van Rensburg will be making the finance case for automation.

On 26 November, CFO South Africa will be hosting a webinar in which TreasuryONE CTO Rudolph Janse van Rensburg will highlight the benefits of automation.

“Robotic process automation (RPA) promises efficiency, time savings and better use of your staff’s time. But finance teams often resist an RPA implementation because of the uncertainty of new technology and the fear that they might become redundant,” says Rudolph. “In reality, RPA holds massive benefits for the teams who will be working with these newly automated processes.”

In this webinar, finance professionals can get a grasp of how to communicate RPA initiatives to finance teams to get everyone on board and to make the project successful. “We will help them understand how RPA projects affect the ‘process owners’ of processes, which end up being automated.”

Attendees will also hear from Renault South Africa VP of finance Kobus Volschenk, who will explain why they embarked on the automation process, how successful it’s been and how he achieved team buy-in.

Kobus will also be joined by his finance team members, Amanda Ndlovu and Christel van der Walt, who will outline how the implementation has radically improved their working days. There is significantly less pressure at month-end, and the quality of work that they produce is greatly improved. You will discover why, as on-the-ground users, they are ardent supporters of automation.
