Business process automation uses technology to automate everyday business processes and workflows. Organisations utilising business process automation save time and money, while increasing efficiency and reducing the likelihood of errors. By automating repetitive, mundane tasks, workers can refocus their efforts on higher value work, which can have a transformative impact on the organisation. It allows staff to work more productively and frees them up by reducing the hours spent on administrative tasks.
With business process automation, employers are given the opportunity to make better choices about workplaces and workers. Businesses can achieve competitive advantages and create more meaningful and productive jobs. With much of the boring, repetitive work taken care of by technology, humans are free to take on more impactful, challenging and interesting work.
There are a few indicators to look for when choosing which processes to automate:
- The process follows a pattern
- The process is time consuming
- The process requires high attention to detail
- The process can be standardised and controlled by rules
Automating such processes helps to reduce staff turnover, gives staff the information they need to accomplish more important tasks and helps to increase operational performance. Essentially, the power of business process automation allows staff to work smarter by providing the following benefits:
- Collaboration: centralising information enables teams to effectively share knowledge, solve problems and keep track of processes, goals and deadlines.
- Insight: by allowing computers to manage your information, data is readily available and can be analysed to gain deeper insights into your business.
- Morale: automation frees up staff so they can innovate and focus on more creative and engaging tasks.
Business process automation is all about working smarter. Employees cannot put in their best work if they are overloaded with tedious and repetitive tasks. Once companies adopt automation, there is simply no turning back to the old way of doing things.
