The financial sector is no stranger to automation, as ATMs and online banking services have been around for a while. However, a new wave of automation is upon us urging financial service providers to embrace a new, robotic workforce.

The benefits of adopting solutions such as RPA (Robotic Process Automation) and AI (Artificial Intelligence) in finance go way beyond cost reduction. They lead to improved control, faster processing speed, increased data quality, better customer service and happier team members freed up from mundane tasks for interesting and value-added work.

On 4th March, we will have the chance to experience the Robotic Touch in Finance, by meeting the experts of the topic. The keynote of Zoltán Szegedi (IFUA Horváth & Partners) will examine how the human touch and the robotic touch can co-exist in the sector and how their interplay will impact financial institutions. After getting nicely warmed-up, three experts will share three real-life implementation examples shedding light on their successes and challenges. Angelika Benkő-Redl and her expert colleagues are bringing you insightful details on the adoption of RPA at K&H Bank. Zoltán Szoleczki is going to share the first results of OTP LAB's recently launched RPA Competence Center, finally Olivér Krizsán is preparing with key learnings about HeroBot's and Takarékbank's collaboration on the use of forward-looking RPA techniques.
