Mid-August Quanton formally announced the first event in our DX Seminar series. Taking place on September 27th in Auckland, the event is designed to give innovative business leaders the practical knowledge they need to hero the conversation for Robotic Automation within their organisations. 


With a focus on Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and the emerging opportunities of Intelligent Process Automation, we are excited to begin officially introducing the speakers who will be sharing their knowledge and experience at the September event, starting with Anthony Scott, Chief Intelligent Automation Officer (CIAO) for Australia and New Zealand at illion
