Our primary goal is to help you get the ball rolling on your RPA journey – part of that lies in the projects we offer, which set up the framework, tools, and methods that make up one part of the foundation. The other lies in training your employees to be self-sufficient in identifying the right processes, analyzing and documenting them, building and maintaining robots, and supporting the business in their use.

If you need training in the SmartRPA Kapow platform as a developer or admin, and you can’t bring a handful of colleagues along for the training, fear not. SmartRPA hosts a training session every second month, where our customers’ employees are able to join us for training sessions on our premise. Check out our Open University page to see more.

Technical Training

Developer Training

Duration: 7 days (4+3)

Open University
On-site

At the core of our training offering lies the developer training, which is tailored to newcomers to the SmartRPA Kapow platform and RPA in general. The course takes place over two weeks, with four days of training in each. In your first week of training, you will focus on the inner workings of SmartRPA Kapow and building web-based robots – and further, understanding how to build robots robustly. In the second week of training, the focus shifts from the web-based robots that are run directly on the server to Device Automation. In very basic terms, you will be automating from your machine, with another machine carrying out the tasks as you go. Device Automation is used for automating processes that rely on more than just browser-based systems.

Points covered

  • Data extraction
  • Building robust element identification
  • Regular Expressions
  • Data transformation
  • Looping
  • Error handling
  • Input/output for a robot
  • Deploying robots

Admin Training

Duration: 1 day

Open University
On-site

Our admin training revolves around managing the SmartRPA Kapow platform and robots on it. The course will take your through how to keep your robots running optimally by keeping track of robot and server performance, scheduling them to run at times fit for both business and underlying systems, and handling errors that may occur. Most of this training is in the Management Console and RoboServer.

Points covered

  • Scheduling of robots
  • Getting an overview of the robot solutions
  • Maintenance
  • Capacity management
  • Error handling
  • Pushing robots to production

Business Training

Business Analyst Training

Duration: 4 days

On-site

This course is aimed at business analysts, who will be identifying, analyzing, documenting, and designing processes for automation. Participants are instructed on the fundamentals of identifying processes suited for automation, what parameters are critical to gauging the potential for automation with RPA, how and with what tools documenting processes is done most easily, and how to hand over the material to allow a developer to successfully create robots.
A course can take up to 4 participants.

Points covered

  • The basics of how a process should be presented to a developer
  • Tools and methods for analyzing and documenting processes
  • A framework to prioritize processes for automation

Management & leadership Workshop

Duration: ½ day + 1½ day preparation

On-site

To you, RPA may be a simple topic. You may know the ins and outs of what it is, how it is used, and how the organization should position it. Your managers and leadership might not be on the same page.
We often work with organizations, where there is a not a clear understanding of what robots are. Where will the robot sit? What can it do? Can I talk to it? How does it learn? While seasoned RPA veterans know that the robot does not, in fact, take up a seat or talk to anyone (that would be the chatbots), these are questions we are often met with.
This workshop touches on what RPA is – and what it isn’t – and gives managers and leadership a clear understanding of what robots they are bringing in, what they’ll be doing, and what types of tasks the robots can free up their employee’s valuable time from.

Points covered

  • Introduction to RPA
  • Tasks a robot can perform (well)
  • Tasks a robot cannot perform (well)
  • How RPA will impact the organization
  • The roadmap for automation

Employee Workshop

Duration: ½ day + 1½ day preparation

On-site

Just as management and leadership may not fully grasp what RPA is, your employees are likely to not fully understand what these robots you are bringing into the organization are, and how they’ll work with them. This seminar aims at communicating your organization’s stance on RPA: will it mean less boring and repetitive work, freeing them up for the fun tasks, or are you actually planning to bring down costs by taking employees out of the company? We are strong advocates of choosing honesty in your communication on how you plan to use RPA – and we’d like to help you in deciding which approach to take with RPA, and voicing your message in the right way.

Points covered

  • Introduction to RPA
  • Aim of RPA in the organization
  • How employee can work with robots
  • How RPA will impact the organization
  • The roadmap for automation
