"It's a great time to be in the accounting profession because now you're FULLY equipped with all these options"

How would a firm get started with RPA and automation technology? In this audio version of their October 2020 LinkedIn Live session, AICPA & CIMA's Penelope Johnson speaks to previous podcast guest Jotham Ty of Gappify in California, and Lesley Mast, a CPA at REA and Associates in Ohio. They discuss firms' key questions and considerations about RPA (robotic process automation), data analytics, and AI (artificial intelligence).
