Business process reengineering and automation: sounds fancy, but what exactly does that mean?
Business process automation involves leveraging technology to transform and streamline a manual process so that it becomes more cost and time-efficient. It takes an everyday business process, such as filing documents or onboarding new employees, and moves all physical documents and related workflows from filing cabinets to one centralized, web-based system. Basically, business process automation is the answer to the thought we’ve all had at one point or another: “there has to be a better and easier way to do this.”
What does this actually mean for your company? How can business process automation help you? There are endless ways that a company can automate their processes, and to be honest, only you and the members within your organization can determine what processes should be automated to increase efficiency and reduce costs.
In order to give you a better idea of how business process automation can be applied to a real organization, we’ve included two examples of how we have helped our clients automate their business processes, and what it means for their day-to-day operations.
In addition to the two examples above, we’ve helped clients across industries and sizes automate processes to manage their volunteers, members, studies, projects, legal cases, inventory, employee collaboration, and much more. We hope these real-world applications give you a better idea of what it means to reengineer and automate business processes, and how it can help your company.
