The digital age is here, but some companies and organizations aren’t. In fact, a lot of the business leaders who come to us admit they are still largely (or even completely) dependent on manual processes to execute everyday operations. In a world where computers and software are teaming up to do more and more, they are still pushing papers, filling out forms, and updating records by hand.
It goes without saying, that falling behind in this way puts you at an enormous disadvantage. Even if your company or department is profitable, why wouldn’t you make it more profitable by using the proper tools for each job?
Automation is more than a business buzzword – it’s a way to cut costs and do away with your biggest hassles. Today, we want to shed light on a few areas of your business that can be greatly improved with custom programming. Let’s look at some of the areas where companies tend to waste more time and money than they should…
Most data entry tasks can be automated quickly and affordably. That means paying for fewer staff for temp hours, but it also means getting higher-quality data into your records more quickly. As any experienced business person can tell you, the toughest part about managing information is having it entered cleanly and rapidly in the first place. Why not let your website, or piece of custom software, handle the job without errors?
Data is only valuable when you can use it to improve your business. Unfortunately, contact details, marketing touch points, and other pieces of information are routinely lost or missed because decision-makers don’t have a good way to spot big-picture trends. With custom software and automation, though, you can get all the data you need at your fingertips, and present it in a way that’s easy to browse and understand.
Many businesses struggle with document management and its various forms. Manufacturers have to pass along manuals, rebate cards and sales materials. Physicians have to keep hundreds of thousands of patient records together. Accountants can find themselves drowning in a sea of invoices, receipts, and statements. With custom software, you can store, catalog, and deliver documents securely in real-time. How much money and aggravation would that save your company?
Getting employees, volunteers, or vendors to the correct places at the correct times can be a logistical nightmare if you’re working through phones, emails, or even faxes. However, savvy companies are integrating online tools, mobile apps, and other resources to automate scheduling processes. The result is a system where these issues can be managed in real-time without gaps or duplications.
