Why choose the FDM Robotic Process Automation (RPA) Graduate Programme?
Robotic Process Automation, or RPA, is changing the way we live and work. The term refers to the automation of rule-based and repetitive tasks and business processes, using AI and Machine Learning software. RPA has a vast impact on many industries, including data protection, crime prevention, finance and healthcare. In financial institutions, RPA completes administrative tasks such as credit card or mortgage applications or opening of bank accounts. Within the NHS, RPA has improved data handling, appointment scheduling and cancellation, resulting in big financial savings and freeing medical hours. This technology also helps conduct data migration and forms processing, it reduces human errors and allows employees to focus on providing better customer service.
