CareWorx Tech Talks – Dec 12th @Central Bierhaus Kanata
The New Wave of Technology: Why Automation is Good for Business
From humble spores of possibility, automation technology has mushroomed into a service phenomenon edging on sci-fi surrealism. The journey was long and careful, having to confront angles of doubt and obstacles to vision. But the cards are now on the table: Amazon Go, Autonomous Vehicle Technology (AVT), Robotic Process Automation (RPA), pizza delivery from a self-driving vehicle. From transportation to shopping, to smart phones and homes—there is no evading the inevitable: automation has deeply infiltrated our lives.
Our worlds have been made easier by this technology—but what about where we work? These days, automation is a trending buzzword, but what has your business done to leverage its efficiencies?
Adopting automation can allow you to:
- Meet more customers
- Save time, resources, and talent
- Do away with the tedious to make way for the innovative
- Deliver revolutionary products and services
- Creatively resolve issues
- Take your business to the next level
CareWorx and Cisco Systems will present together for a Tech Talks about how technology automation advances can transform your business.
