Cleverbit is committed to delivering bespoke solutions that drive growth and enhance operational performance. Business Automation is one of the many tools we use to help pave the way for enhanced efficiency and business growth for our clients.
Business automation is the application of technology such as AI and the Microsoft Power Platform to replace manual processes with software, thereby increasing efficiency and accuracy.
It helps extract insights from data, and allows for quick decisions to be taken, and focus to be placed on strategic tasks that foster real growth. With business automation, your organisation can be more productive and competitive while reducing costs and eliminating errors.
The introduction and implementation of automated processes in all aspects of business operation is inevitable. Technology such as Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are key tools that will help businesses streamline processes, automate manual tasks, and make quick, data-driven decisions. Business automation, in essence, is about making your business work smarter and not harder, thereby enhancing overall business efficiency.
It’s only a matter of time:
66%of organisations are currently implementing or interested in automation.
64%of business professionals at enterprise organisations plan to build automations that focus on improving the employee experience over the next two years.
85%of businesses agree that implementing automation allows for employees to focus on what’s important for the business.
Automation can make many parts of running a business easier and more efficient. For example, businesses can set up automatic emails that get sent when someone new signs up for a newsletter or when there’s an update about a potential customer (a “lead”). Businesses can also use automation to create important documents like contracts or invoices, using information that’s already in their customer management system.
Another big help is system synchronisation. This means that when something changes in one system, that change can be automatically updated in other systems. This is especially useful for businesses with both online and physical stores, as it can help keep track of inventory and ensure that stock levels are consistent across all platforms. This saves time and helps keep everything consistent.
System synchronisation is also useful when pulling together reports, as data from different systems can be automatically combined.
Automation can help with scheduling meetings or events. It can automatically check everyone’s calendars and find a time that works for everyone, which saves a lot of back-and-forth trying to find a suitable time.
With today’s advanced AI technology, automation can even handle tasks like reviewing documents and extracting important information. This can save a lot of time and make sure nothing important is missed.
Cleverbit Software offers a complimentary proposal to kickstart your business automation journey. Our team will work with you to identify automatable tasks that are draining your resources and will design a custom solution to address them. While we can start small, our ultimate aim is to make a significant impact on your business.
The process begins with a workshop to identify and understand the processes you’re looking to automate. This allows us to explore what tools you are already using, what is frustrating about the existing process and what should be automated. Following this, we present a tailored proposal free of charge with no strings attached and no commitments.
No, long-term contracts aren’t necessary. We automate one task at a time, and it’s up to you whether to continue our partnership. Most clients continue working with us after the first engagement on further automation, as more opportunities for automation become evident as the business becomes more efficient.
With business automation, value is seen as soon as it is deployed. We develop solutions in 2-week increments, deploying as frequently as possible to provide quick results. The benefits of automation are immediately obvious as businesses can focus on more meaningful work and not get bogged down in mundane tasks.
The cost depends on the specific automation required and the tools used. With low-code and no-code tools, such as the Microsoft Power Platform, business automation is significantly more affordable than it was just a few years ago. We make sure to leverage existing services, such as the Azure Cognitive Services or OpenAI GPT API for AI capabilities. We are firm believers in only building the software that is absolutely required to achieve efficiency, and we avoid extra development to keep costs down and have the highest return on investment. In our free proposal, we provide a detailed estimate along with a breakdown.
