Intelligent Automation: RPA Brown Bag Lunch

UC has started a programme of work to assess and implement intelligent automation opportunities across the university and form a Centre of Excellence in process automation.

The aim of this programme is to utilise intelligent automation to provide improved service to students, clients, suppliers and staff and provide staff with more time to complete unfinished tasks, solve complex problems, and perform additional tasks.  UC has now completed development of five automated processes, with a further two in development.

What: 3rd RPA Brown Bag Lunch
When: 12pm – 1pm Tuesday 8 October 2019
Where: Puaka James Hight 210

The aim of this session is to cover the following four topics:

  • What is Intelligent Automation, and where does Robotic Process Automation (“RPA”) sit on the spectrum between rules-based and adaptive thinking.
  • What is UC currently doing in Robotic Process Automation, including case studies and end-user experiences.
  • Could RPA be a potential solution for a current pain point you experience that is effecting your ability to complete your required tasks, or provide the required level of service to UC’s students, clients and staff.
  • What are the required skillsets for working with intelligent automation, and how can I upskill myself.

So bring along your lunch and have a chat.  If you have any questions, please get in touch with the team at intelligentautomation@canterbury.ac.nz.

Intelligent Automation: Call for Potential Processes

UC has begun a programme of work to access and implement intelligent automation opportunities across the University.

The aim of this programme is to utilise intelligent automation to provide improved service to students, clients, suppliers and staff and provide staff with more time to complete unfinished tasks, solve complex problems, and perform additional tasks.

The programme is following on from the bank statement coding and reconciliation process that was developed as a proof of concept in January of this year.

The key requirements for automation candidates is to be rules based, have high volume and repetition. If you have a process or part of a process that you think has aspects ready for automation please get in touch with a member of the team at  intelligentautomation@canterbury.ac.nz.
