Automation versus Paperwork
There are certain strategic decisions and dilemmas that every enterprise happens to come across.
To build an app or buy
To do or to outsource
To excel or sustain
And, to automate or do the paperwork!
Although automation has effectively taken over a lot of businesses operating in varied industries, there are still some tech laggards skeptical about whether or not they should replace paperwork with automated workflows. If you too are one of those enterprises that still consider automation as a matter of choice, and are okay being buried deeper into paperwork, you may have already lost it to your smarter competitors.
Here are some pros that give automation a clear edge over paperwork.
Optimize Your Workflow
Sure, it’s your prerogative to decide whether you would automate or do it manually, but keep in mind that paperwork only makes a job redundant, monotonous and boring. And factoring in all three, the chance for errors as a result of a job done half-heartedly increases exponentially.
In the present-age business world, you do not necessarily need to spend hours entering data, managing recording or proofing information on your own. Let automation do the job, so you can spend your time in more strategic work, with the peace of mind that all of your routine business processes are being performed on time with optimum efficiency.
Minimal Risk and Better Compliance
When a task is manually performed, you cannot rule out the probability of a human error. If the same task is performed on a regular basis, it turns monotonous, and the risk of mistakes increases multifold.
Wrong entries, missed information, lost invoices, and incomplete contracts – all of this and more can be effectively overcome and minimized through automation. The outcome: the reduced risk will translate into minimum errors and eventually lead to better compliance.
If you think technology is expensive, you haven’t estimated the overall cost of paperwork, including the inefficiency, delays, and compliance issues it entails. Automation is a one-time investment that can be scaled to deliver to your changing needs and continues to perform in the longer run, without requiring any further investment.
Smart Data Management
Data has become the make or break catalyst for businesses, and enterprises of today – regardless of their size and industry – are awash with a whirlwind of data, carrying vital information crucial to an enterprise’s strategic growth and success.
Data management is no more a matter of choice, but a critical success factor and the key to survival – more so for enterprises pursuing digital transformation. It is practically impossible for manual paperwork to sort, manage, store, categorize, profile, store, and analyze the constant influx of data pouring in from almost untraceable sources – making automation as the only way to go about.
