Paper and manual-based forms are fast being replaced by automation and new digital tools, and it’s a boon for businesses, adding significant value to their organization.
Even as digitization and automation sweep across the industry, there are a few companies that continue to believe that their departments & processes are better off as a paper-and-spreadsheet process.
Many argue that the costs incurred for automation outweigh its measurable ROI. However, it is always found that in a highly complex regulatory landscape, an outdated approach to paperwork, leads to human errors, delays, operational gaps, dented productivity, loss of customer interests, thus requiring more time, money and effort on customers and thus cost escalations.
In defense of a paperless automation setup, let’s look at its 4 key value drivers
The best thing about automating manual or paper-based processes is that it makes things easier. Turnaround times are sped up, as employees have instant access to the data points they need, and they quickly complete any action items that help your business.
No matter how diligent your data entry team may be, human errors are almost always inevitable.
A mistake, an incorrect number or misspelled email address, could result in a lost business opportunity, as you’re now missing that small, critical piece of information to connect with someone.
Entire processes can be both sped up, error- free, and the data can be protected from a breach.
In today’s world where both employee & customer engagement are key to business success, an automated program will help an employee perform their tasks better and faster, making the lives of the customer simpler, ensuring the perfect connection.
Not only will this boost motivation for employees, it will also keep them focused on critical business targets and increase their productivity.
Customers and clients too will enjoy the streamlined processes, not having to do as much work related to form-filling.
Automating manual processes or forms is not dependent on what industries you are part of or what function you handle. Whether you are in HR, Sales, Account Management, or whether your businesses are into FMCG, Education, Manufacturing, Financial Services, IT etc., automating all manual tasks will carry over into all industries and departments.
Not only will it boost performance, but it will open up more time to focus on higher value work.
Our Take on This
The future of any industry or function lies in holding the arms of automation. You do not need hefty sums of money or be technologically savvy to have one of the numerous technologies available in the market, implemented at your business. All you need is to understand the power of automation and how this will benefit you, your employees, and your customers in the long run, allowing more time for meaningful connections.
