“As we continue down the path of automation, virtually every city will have 24-hour convenience stores, 24-hour libraries, 24-hour banks, 24-hour churches, 24-hour schools, 24-hour movie theatres, 24-hour bars and restaurants and even 24-hour shopping centers.” — Thomas Frey
What is Automation?
Automation is a process to structure a system, machine, procedure or apparatus that includes no or less human intervention and effectively increases the productivity and efficiency. Automation helps to reduce the human errors and labor, thus deducts the overall labor cost. Automation makes a system self-working and this automated system doesn’t require any sort of input from external entities. Automation pushes professionals to focus sharply on big picture projects that can bring benefit to organization at a large scale.
What is Business Process Automation and why it is important to your Business?
Business process Automation (BPA) is a procedure to automate some business processes which are highly time, effort and resource consuming. These processes might be prone to human errors and need no human involvement to get accomplished.
BPA is very important to the business world today but each business activity can not be accelerated through it. Very first an entrepreneur needs to have a detailed information about the process only then he/she can identify if the process is human-driven or machine-driven.
According to today’s market study the very striking competition among the market leaders is who introduces the new item or stuff first in the marketplace so if you still use a manual way to deliver your products in the market, your business might lag behind. The most successful business giants have been using the automation system for so long and are flexible enough to incorporate all technical advancement with no delay.
Benefits of using Automation in Business
Maximum productivity, least error in work, increased efficiency and lower payroll cost are some key points that help every business to gain maximum revenue. Here I am going to discuss some important points that prove why your business should make a strong bond with automation world.
Automation gives any business more managed shape. For any information,staff need not to look everywhere rather the automated system keep all the required information at the same place which, in turn, saves time and enhances the productivity level.
Taking business to the next level of growth is only possible when you have a detailed information of all the ongoing and already done activity records. Also, each information must be authentic as decisions based on hollow data might lead your business to end in couple of seconds.
Each small or big task contributes a significant portion of profit hence it must be done correctly. But, don’t you think employees’ more attention on less revenue generating projects divert them from big projects? These menial tasks can be accomplished with the help of automated systems that too with no error and less time. This drags the overall human efforts to the big targets and raises the growth level of the company.
Sales team is the base of any organizational growth and they perform best under the monitored network. The Route Tracking App tool connects big brother persistently to the field staff and enables him track all ongoing sales activity like how many prospects are being dealt at a time and how long a meeting takes to close the sale. The round the clock connectivity pushes sales reps to come up with their best.
Once the system is tuned up for required up-gradation, it then accelerates the whole process accurately. The error free results and time to time service drive more customers and make them trust in your products. Human can make mistakes but machines can’t as they have no emotions hence psychologically businesses believe adopting business automation more smarter than relying on manual efforts.
Automation brings a transparency in the system. For any wrongdoings, document-mix or incorrect activity executives can’t blame to each other as everything remains in front of manager. Also, the manager checks what is going wrong and who is accountable for the mistake.
