What Kind of Processes are Subject to Automation?

When we consider processes that can be automated, we are faced with the opportunity to increase efficiency and reduce costs. However, which processes should be automated? Let's find out together.

Before moving forward, we need to understand what automation means. It's not just about implementing technology, but also about improving processes to work more efficiently. Automation allows you to optimize the company's operations, resources, and finances, improve quality, reduce task time, and reduce errors.

Types of processes that can be automated

Certain processes require constant execution within a limited time frame. Such tasks can be optimized through automation, freeing people from monotonous tasks: 

- processing a large amount of information that needs to be processed or analyzed
- establishing interaction and communication with customers and partners
- managing processes and tasks, with the distribution and control of deadlines

Where to start?

1. Analyze the efficiency of processes

The first step in selecting objects for automation is to analyze existing processes. Comparing time, costs, and errors can help identify critical points and areas for growth.

2. Implement automation at critical points

Sometimes automation is important at bottlenecks in business processes, where even small optimizations can have a significant impact. For example, automated order confirmation in online commerce can increase your website's conversion rate and customer satisfaction.

3. Identify processes with high potential

Efficiency gains can be achieved by identifying processes that already have a certain degree of automation but can be further optimized. For example, using artificial intelligence to analyze data can help save hours or even weeks of team work and allow for more informed decision-making.

What criteria should be considered?

There are several aspects to consider when choosing processes to automate:

  • Frequency of execution: The more frequently a process is performed, the greater the benefit of automating it.
  • Time and costs: Estimating the time spent on execution and the costs of automation compared to manual execution.
  • Accuracy and errors: The quality of the task and the likelihood of errors due to human error.

Examples of objects to automate

Below are some examples of objects for automation in business.

Interaction with partners: The PRM system allows you to personalize the terms of cooperation, simplify the control of activities and collection of statistics for analysis, and implement a loyalty program to further motivate partners.

Customer service and support: Using chatbots to answer common customer questions or automated systems to track and process requests. 

Financial transactions and accounts: Automate recurring payments, invoicing, or managing accounting transactions to increase accuracy and avoid errors.

Identifying potential objects for automation is only the first step in improving business processes. A thorough analysis and understanding of what can be automated opens the door to more efficient and productive work.

Automation is becoming a key element of business development, simplifying routine operations and freeing up time for strategic tasks. The above examples are just drops in the ocean of opportunities that automation opens up for us in the modern world.
