SINGAPORE /PRNewswire/ — Asia’s #1 Shared Services & Outsourcing event returns for the 19th year in Singapore on 15-16 November 2016. Against the backdrop of economic uncertainties and tightening market competition, the 19th Shared Services & Outsourcing Week (SSOW) Asia, which will be held by SSON, a division of IQPC, will gather shared services leaders in the region to explore and exchange transformational strategies driving business agility and value-add in their organisations.

According to the latest research from Shared Services & Outsourcing Network (SSON), more than 80% of shared services organisations in Asia are committed to delivering value beyond costs savings. In particular, they are turning to robotics process automation and data analytics to fast-track their business targets.

“Under current market conditions, shared services and outsourcing (SS&O) leaders in Asia are under pressure to do more with less. The good news is – the industry has never been more ready to make the transition from cost-savings to value-add. Advancements in new technologies such as robotics process automation and data analytics are key enablers in the redeployment of shared services resources and talent to focus on value-added work,” said Ann Liu, Asia deputy divisional director at SSON. 60% of respondents in SSON’s Mega Trends Report 2016 ranked robotics process automation as a radical game-changer and 90% believed data analytics to be critical to improving business decision-making.

While it is still early stages in Asia when it comes to robotics process automation and data analytics uptake, SSON predicts that this scenario is likely to change. On that note, Ann Liu further said, “If you look closely at the speed of current adoption and the results thus far, the prospects for future applications are immense. Robotics process automation and data analytics will lead to process improvement and that in turn, will bring shared services closer to supporting their organisations as critical business partners.”

SSON’s flagship SSOW Asia 2016 will shine the spotlight on robotics process automation and data analytics implementation. In addition, the event will feature key discussions on priorities such as Talent Management, Cost-Control, Shared Services Governance, Customer Experience and Outsourcing. Do not miss this opportunity to network with more than 400 SS&O senior leaders, forge new relationships and equip yourself with the knowledge and skills to drive continuous success in your organisation.

“With more than 100,000 senior level SS&O members, we at SSON, have always prided ourselves on being the best platform for industry practitioners to keep their pulse on the industry. This year is no exception. Let SSOW 2016 be your guide in formulating your SS&O roadmap for 2017 and beyond,” said Ann Liu.
