The Robotic Revolution


We are pleased to invite you to the 95th session of NASSCOM Product Forum at Coimbatore.

Continuing to do “business as usual” is a landmine for any organization in any industry.

“Robotics Process Automation – making the back office operations more tightly coupled, efficient, faster and reliable. A trend the system integrators actively leverage to work directly with business of client’s organizations and help them achieve significant cost savings and faster time to market as well as higher revenue yield”

We aren’t talking about futuristic mechanical robots, but rather “software robots” that automate virtually any activity or tasks. Robotic process automation enables you to create a virtual workforce where software robots are dispatched to inject time-saving, accuracy-assuring process automation, saving time, money and the hassle once associated with manual intervention. Organizations making effective use of robotic process automation experience transformative efficiency gains, develop more intelligence around their process, and deliver superior customer service.

We look forward to your valuable participation.
