Why is Business Automation important?

Businesses can stick with the same manual operations that started 20 or 30 years ago despite advances in automation technologies and operate at a “good enough” level. Can your company thrive in a world where automation enables competitors to be easier and faster to work with than you? A global pandemic has shifted the risk proposition to where failing to change is no longer an option. Organizations must accelerate and scale business process automation in order to have the resiliency and agility to survive. Among the drivers of this change, there are three key elements to consider: volatile demand, industry disruption, and workforce productivity.

The following questions can help you focus your investment in Automation:


Will automation make it easier for customers to do business with me?

Customers won’t choose, or stick with, a difficult and time-consuming process if an easier, faster process is available.


Will automation drive growth?

A key benefit of automation is the ability to easily scale. If you can attract and retain new customers, then your automation investment will achieve higher returns for you.


Will automation reduce costs?

This question gets closest to easily quantifiable ROI. Cost reduction is often achieved through automation.
But remember that you may get even more value from a better, more modern system that increases revenue for an overall net benefit.


Will automation help reduce errors and improve consistency?

Errors are expensive, but you can’t always compute their costs. Greater consistency and reduced errors have significant value, even if your number isn’t exact.


Will automation make compliance easier?

You must comply with regulations, so if automation can reduce the resources you need for compliance, then you have a business win.
