UiPath will exhibit at the SAPPHIRE NOW and ASUG Annual Conference, the annual SAP conference for business leaders and information technology (IT) professionals in the extended SAP community.
We'll be there to show you how to get more returns from your SAP investment with Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and how you can adapt an 'automation first' mindset in your own organization.
Many attendants are preparing for a significant migration from SAP ERP Central Component (ECC) to SAP S/4HANA and we'll demonstrate how you can make that migration easier. Far from being a cause of stress, migration can open the opportunity to pursue the additional automation opportunities for an intelligent enterprise.
For many, automation has been the intelligent enterprise dream for decades, but it's often been difficult to find the right place, the right time, and the right automation solution.
Below, you'll find some of the exciting information we'll be presenting, who you can see at the event to get more details, and how RPA can take your SAP applications to the next level.
Automation accelerates digital transformation
Speed, quality, and employee satisfaction are all at risk if your organization is focused on processing large volumes of repetitive, manual tasks. The more repetitive a task, the more likely someone will eventually make an error. Errors accumulate, and can lead to inaccuracies in important records, compliance problems, and dissatisfied customers.
The possibility of solving these problems with automation isn't new. In the past, developers have spun up numerous process automations to address inefficiencies as they come along.
These one-off solutions, however, tend to suffer from isolation. When they work, they work, but if any part of the system they connect to changes, then they often need to be rebuilt. Automations on the edge can only provide limited value.
Through UiPath, you can get end-to-end automation that connects to applications inside and outside the SAP ecosystem. RPA can actually increase the value of your SAP investment by enabling you to do more tasks at a higher speed across a wider range of applications.
The benefits this provides to finance, for instance, are plentiful. With RPA, you can automate a range of important finance tasks you'd do in SAP, such as invoice entry and collection, validation, reconciliation, payroll, and expense management. Even if your purchase orders or invoices are coming in via fax, mail, or emailed PDFs, computer vision and optical character recognition (OCR) can enter that data automatically, so employees don't have to type it manually.
RPA enables you to design processes that are more consistent and enforceable, all backed by an audit trail. You can even use RPA to automate your quarterly and annual financial reporting. With the revenue-to-cash cycle spinning faster, you can free your team to work on more strategic projects.
Consider RPA your first step to having a digital workforce. If you're excited about this digital transformation—and no longer be dealing with mountains of manual data entry—automating your SAP processes can be your first step to RPA. The opportunities for automation are endless and you can start almost anywhere.

UiPath is the Platform for the automation first era
Automation has long promised a new paradigm in business transformation, but it has since crossed a threshold.
Enterprises are now automating essential processes and freeing their employees to do the kinds of critical and creative work that only humans can do. In the past, companies had internal RPA developers who championed automation. Now, entire boards are planning ambitious RPA programs.
In the automation first era, we envision a Robot For Every Person, continued collaboration to keep improving the UiPath Platform, and a commitment to Robots that learn skills.
We're committed to this vision, and we want to empower your enterprise to get started with RPA. UiPath makes it easy for employees and departments to discover processes they can improve, and build and use automations to achieve efficiency in SAP environments that was previously impossible.
We look forward to seeing you at the SAPPHIRE NOW conference next week!
