iGaming Workshop: Betting on Automation

Summary

A complimentary workshop offering insight on the optimisation of iGaming operator processes through the use of bespoke robotic solutions.

Overview

“About half of all the activities staff carry out could be fully or partially automated by adapting currently demonstrated technologies”

This complimentary workshop marks the launch of the KPMG Gaming Faculty. Attendees will gain insight on emerging technologies, with a focus on Robotic Process Automation (RPA). This technology enables the optimisation of manual, regular and repetitive processes through bespoke bots. This has already allowed a number of operators the chance to broaden their margins. At a time when operator’s margins have been tightened due to ever-increasing compliance demands, this technology has been well received. Following this workshop, a drinks mixer will be held on our 7th floor terrace, allowing all attendees a chance to unwind and enjoy the views of the Marina!

Furthermore, we invite you to join our gaming courses which have already been announced including:

Responsible Gambling – Training for Customer Support Professionals
General Awareness Training on Responsible Gaming
Gambling and Sports Betting in Austria
AML Training for the iGaming Sector

Workshop Outline:

  1. Launch of our Gaming Faculty
  2. Introduction to Emerging Technologies
  3. Robotic Process Automation (RPA) Overview
  4. Identifying RPA Candidates within the Gaming Industry
  5. RPA Benefits Realisation and Return on Investment
