UKAA News Buzz 29/09/2020 – Getting started with automation


Hello UKAA Members. 

We hope you’ve made the most of summer holidays—September has been so busy they already seem like a distant memory for us. For the last few months, we’ve been working a lot on new Robotic Process Automation (RPA) solutions for our clients.  
Did you know that you can have a virtual robot securely log into your Real Estate Systems, copy the data you need, and paste it into an Excel file so you can easily run reports you need without the manual effort usually involved? These RPA bots can send emails, read data, and follow processes to a tee.  
If you’re ready to become as efficient as possible, making use of RPA might be your next tech step. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of tasks that a bot can take on. To learn more, we’ve got all the resources you need, simple read on!

Introducing this week's UKAA News Buzz sponsor:
