According to the ABSL study, 76 percent of surveyed companies use simple automation (Robotic Process Automation) in company activities. Adding artificial intelligence and cognitive automation, software robots are able to perform repetitive and predictable actions without the need for employee intervention (automatic mails, virtual agent, Interactive voice response). 21 percent of the interviewed companies use cognitive automation.

Most companies, 57 percent, internally develop these simple automation solutions. 25 percent of the interviewed companies developed internally centers of excellence for the development of automation processes.

"Automating certain activities means enabling employees to engage in activities where they can better express their skills and creativity. The team has more time to devote themselves to projects and initiatives that bring high business value, and so people will have more satisfaction than a trivial and repetitive activity. At the same time, robots will need to be coordinated, becoming more and more "assistants" for employees, helping them to do their work more efficiently, and in many cases ensuring ongoing processing for standard activities," said Bogdan Barbu, ABSL vice president.

ABSL Romania and the Academy of Economic Studies in Bucharest launched in 2016 the Business Services Masters program, organized by the Faculty of Accounting and Management Information Technology, which is available for 50 students every year.

"In 2018 he graduated the first generation of students in the Business Services Masters program. The fact that 98 per cent of them have already engaged in companies in the industry at the end of their studies, confirms how important it is to continue the investment in the education of the next generation of specialists," says Catalin Iorgulescu, ABSL vice president.
