Put an end to the daily grind

Cost savings and efficiency improvements are key drivers for almost any organisation today, regardless of size and sector. In many cases, there are opportunities to transform everyday tasks with technology in order to make those gains.

Consider, for example, the time and effort it takes to process incoming paper-based mail (like invoices) manually; or to maintain corporate inventory or customer contact information using spreadsheets. If you could manage tasks like these by digitising documents, implementing workflows, or by introducing automation, how much money could you save? And how much more time would employees have to focus on higher-value, strategic activities?

The first step to transforming time-consuming, repetitive processes generally involves converting paper documents to digital; or switching from spreadsheets to more specialised applications, such as enterprise resource planning (ERP) or customer relationship management (CRM) systems. Once you get that information under control — stored, managed and accessible digitally — you'll find you can simplify sharing and collaboration, monitor the progress of a task, maintain information security, increase productivity, and enable more in-depth data analytics and reporting.

Other repetitive processes that generally rely on people also lend themselves to automation. For a manufacturing company, quality inspection of parts or products may be critical to revenues — helping you avoid costly rework and disappointed customers. But human inspectors may become tired, get distracted or make mistakes; or you may have a heavy training burden owing to high staff turnover. Automating quality inspection using video analytics can ensure a much higher degree of consistency and accuracy, leading to better quality products, improved customer satisfaction and increased revenues.
