The RPA Award for the category was presented to the Bank for its end-to-end automation of User ID Management function which automates key Human Resources Management request processes.

The Bank revealed that the Application Programming Interface (API) of its User ID Management function is integrated with the Bank’s HR systems to obtain details of permanent and banking trainee employees, employment changes on the effective date, and backdated employment changes.
