Impact of Process Automation on Business Processes
The 1920’s saw an uproar in the economy after the downfall that were the 1910’s. But all the efforts combined still couldn’t amount to getting out of the economy pinch, when the stock market crashed and the Great Depression began. Evident from the current state of the world, we seem to be spiraling towards the same fate. So what is it that we can do differently, a 100 years later?
Well for starters, technology helps. While it has been a century since, people still forget to put to use one of the biggest leaps we have made in the past 100 years; harboring the power that is technology. Technological aid and the impact that automation of business processes brings to the productivity of the business is a genius and unprecedented idea, and a very much true one at that.
Here are some ways how automating your business processes can offer turnkey solutions for your enterprisal problems, leading to a leg-up above the others:
Over 40% of workers surveyed that they spend at least a quarter of their work during the week in tedious, repetitive and manual tasks. Automating tasks in a set order not only reduces these redundancies but also saves time and makes room for other endeavors within your enterprise. Workers waste countless hours of their week in tasks that can otherwise be reduced to the tap of a button on a screen or on a machine that would make the process a lot easier.
A well-oiled system pumping out its operations left and right without any reprehensible holdup increases not only the quantity but the quality of work as well. Automation can handle up to 45% of repetitive work. It gives workers time for more higher-value tasks such as problem-solving, finding solutions and developing new ideas. This will empower employees, and generate a more engaging and challenging work experience.
Untangles the workflow
Think of it this way, the more tangled your ball of yarn is, the more trouble you’re going to have in knitting a sweater better than any of your competitors. A system run all by hands, run through the head and kept manual copies of, is bound to cause that mix-up that you have been dreading and it is going to get in the way of your other tasks as well. A centralized system, with designated departments for each function gives you clear visuals of every single needle spin of that yarn.
Better relationship with clients
Automation allows companies to take a back seat for once on all the front-line operations and let them take their course while they can focus on building better relationships with their clients. This gives room to understand the strategic ground on which better and tighter relationships with clients can be built consequently leading to an increased cashflow.
Allows a better customer service
A customer’s satisfaction is a front runner factor for success in any business. Without a satisfied customer, automation of any kind does not mount to any feasible results. Research shows that 66% of adults believe that the most important thing a company can do is value their time during a service interaction. Process automation leads to reduction in time to solve customer issues and by doing it in a sequential and organized manner without having to go through the troubles of dealing with them in person.
