Synopsis

The world is moving fast, experience sets expectation, and expectations are increasing. Your customers – internal and external – assume you’ll deliver frictionless experience, faster care, fulfilling purpose. No wonder leading companies turn to automation to enhance the customer journey, boost productivity and efficiency, reduce costs, retain an overall competitive edge. To advance.

But (and there is always a but)… According to a recent survey of business leaders, digital transformation is the biggest risk factor facing organizations today.

It’s not hard to see why. This year alone, enterprises are expected to invest $1.3 trillion in digital initiatives to improve efficiencies, increase customer value and create new monetization opportunities. Yet, according to Forbes Technology Council: “research tells us that 70% of these initiatives will not reach their stated goals … over $900 billion worth of spend will miss the mark.”

You need to automate to deliver on the huge potential of digital transformation. You don’t want to be part of the 70%. How can smart businesses avoid starting off on the wrong foot and/or rescue projects that have lost their way?

Join WorkFusion and select group of finance, operations, retail and technology leaders for one unique, interactive, peer-to-peer conversation inspired by real use cases. With Q4 already in motion, are you set to meet your digital transformation goals? Are you prepared to succeed in 2020? How are you freeing your people from the mundane so they can focus on the meaningful? How are you organizing to fully exploit the automation revolution?
