The latest instalment in the LSE RPA white paper series – in this research paper Professor Leslie Wilcox and Professor Mary Lacity examine how Robotic Process Automation is being deployed in the shared services organization because of swivel chair processes. The paper includes case studies and benefits achieved such as FTE savings and more satisfied employees because their jobs are refocused on more interesting tasks that require judgment, empathy and social interactions.
In this report, we examine how Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is being deployed in shared service organizations as the next transformation lever beyond centralization, standardization, optimization, relocation to low cost areas, and use of enabling technologies.
