Automate your business processes — up to 10x faster

Kushagra Pal on September 10, 2020

Companies of all sizes experience complexities when competing and reforming in a software-driven ecosystem owing to the shortage of programmers, as well as IT resources that lack support for strategic objectives of a business. Every business wants to achieve more out of fewer efforts and resources. Automation has traditionally been the most effective way to do more with less. The formative years of automation begins with the industrial revolution in the period from 1790 to 1840 which paved the way to produce more without the need of any additional resources, making automation a revolutionary term that signifies the digital transformation of a business.

Today in the modern times – automation has entered in the digital world. There are three types of automation under the umbrella of business process automation.

  1. Basic Automation- simple automation to perform repetitive tasks to make the job simpler. e.g. centralised messaging tool for a group.
  2. Process Automation- automated management of business processes for transparency and control. e.g. automation of employee onboarding process.
  3. Intelligent Automation- machine learning-enabled automation with decision-making capabilities based on data. e.g smart AI chatbots. 

As a cumulative of all types of automation, business process automation is the application of technology in which manual effort can be substituted with technologically advanced apps and softwares to perform repetitive tasks and processes. This process streamlines and optimizes the workflow, reduces the cost and increases the efficiency.
