TRUEUP STUDENT INNOVATION CHALLENGE

BUILD THE BEST BOT FOR THE ACCOUNTING WORLD

Bots are disrupting the accounting profession fast and it's become an opportunity for humans to automate repetitive, mundane tasks like reading invoices, data entry, or running reports leveraging bot technology and artificial intelligence so that we can put our brains to better use guiding companies toward financial growth.

 

This is your chance to BRING A BOT TO LIFE.

 

READY TO BUILD THE BEST BOT?

Each student or team of students get to design, develop, and deploy a real chatbot that supports an accounting function. BRING YOUR BOT TO LIFE!

DESIGN

DEVELOP

DEPLOY

Name your chatbot, pick a gender (or make it genderless), choose an accounting cycle, and start designing! TrueUp will provide you resources and best practices for designing a chatbot for an accounting function.

Using a user-friendly bot-builder platform provided by TrueUp, implement your bot design. TrueUp will provide resources and step-by-step instructions to guide you as you establish your bot's dialog, responses, and functions.

Once you've developed your bot, you will test it and then deploy to the TrueUp Bot Lot channel for registered professionals to access and interact with. You can include your name (or all team member names) as the author if you're interested in firms reaching out to you.
