Workflow automation_journey_technology

Workflow automation solutions capture, route and deliver information securely (1), allowing employees to focus on adding value to your business.

Globally, office workers spend 69 days per year completing repetitive, administrative tasks that could easily be automated (2), costing businesses $5 trillion USD annually. According to a McKinsey report, 60% of businesses could save 30% of their time with automation (3), including processing documents, approving paperwork and increasing collaboration across teams.

Here we outline three reasons why you should implement Workflow Automation.

1 – Increase business efficiency and your bottom line

UK businesses consistently lose 20-30% of revenue every year to inefficient workflow management (4). By combining your current processes with a modern, digital strategy, you can streamline your current infrastructure and increase your bottom line.

2 – Productivity & Collaboration

Studies show employees record an 8% to 15% increase in productivity when they use workflow automation (5). Implementing a workflow automation solution allows your employees to collaborate more easily, across multiple, remote sites. This, in turn, leads to increased employee job satisfaction, which can only be a positive for your business.

3 – Decrease time to market

Multi-tasking can cost companies 40% of productivity output simply due to constantly switching between tasks (6). Workflow automation does a great job at standardising and streamlining existing organisational processes, making it easier to prioritise tasks and see projects through to completion.

Automating your workflows can help you set accurate and reliable timescales for your projects allowing you to allocate and schedule tasks amongst your team, minimising the need to continually switch tasks. The consistency that automation brings to your plans will ultimately save you time, money and allow you to get to market faster.
