Improve your processes & Improve your business
Automated processes don’t get tired, lose focus, make mistakes in data handling, or spend time on other business activities. They allow the business to take the time-consuming, repetitive tasks, which are better handled by the computer anyway, out of the hands of the users and refocus those users’ efforts on other business activities that can be more in line with business goals and needs. Doing this multiplies the effectiveness of both users and applications.
Your key business processes can be high-level or basic in nature. But the answer is the same- business process automation makes key business processes faster, more efficient, more manageable and secure, and less prone to error and delay.
In summary, Network Automation and its offerings drive real business value by:
By automating the movement of data between applications, common errors that occur in the process of re-keying data entry are eliminated. Once the BPA process has been tested and deployed, there are simply fewer opportunities for common user-introduced errors to have an impact. This reduction in errors results in saving both time and money that would otherwise be spent fixing the errors and any problems that the errors introduce further down the process chain.
Improving performance and process effectiveness
In many cases, tasks that must be done manually are the bottleneck in the process. Automating those manual tasks speeds up the effective throughput of the application, thus allowing your existing software solutions to deliver their results more efficiently and effectively.
Making users more efficient and effective
By automating tasks that were consuming personnel resources, those resources can be redirected toward core business needs. This allows your business to effectively gain available man hours that it can apply to other business projects without additional expenditures. People can focus their energies on the tasks they do best, allowing the computers to handle those that machines are best suited for.
Making your business more responsive
With a good BPA tool, your business can easily automate new applications and processes as they are introduced, and so allow your business to become more responsive to business and customer needs, without significant new expenditures. BPA deployment can take days/weeks instead of the months required to implement a manual process change. Furthermore, a good BPA platform will enable an organization to implement BPA without requiring highly technical development resources making the automation application life cycle much easier to implement and maintain.
