In prevailing disruption, enterprises who focus on standardizing and building Process Centers of Excellence will be able to thrive. With increasing digital interactions among employees, customers and business stakeholders, organizations are looking at process automation solutions to forge their business forward.
Ensuring business continuity, enhancing employee efficiency in the new hybrid work model, and delivering better employee experience are some of the leading priorities for business leaders today.
How can you enhance employee efficiency through workflow automation?
Automating core processes and workflows play a pivotal role in enhancing both operational as well as employee efficiencies. Workflow solutions enable seamless collaboration wherein work gets done effortlessly from person-to-person, system-to-system, to the cloud and back – without any bottlenecks or breakdowns.
The workflow solutions help to automate core business processes, thereby removing routine and manual tasks from your employees, allowing them to focus on meaningful productive work and improving the quality of collaboration between cross functional teams .
In this blog, we’ll outline how you can enhance the efficiency of your employees through process automation and workflow solutions. We will share insights on:
- Process mapping
- Document generation
- Robotic process automation
- Advanced workflow
- Process analytics
Process mapping software is a robust business tool that makes it easy to view your organization’s processes step-by-step so you can better understand them and ensure continuous improvement, quality assurance, and risk management.
Using process mapping software, employees can document procedures, forms and attachments, images/videos, links to policies, and reference to content across departments and job types.
Process Mapping helps to put collaborative processes in place wherein every team member has a clear idea of what they need to do, how to do it, and why it matters. When process information is easily accessible and gives visual representation of how processes work , it helps team members to identify areas in need of improvement and increases the overall efficiency in a workplace.
Document generation automates the process of creating critical documents like invoices, contracts, sales proposals, work orders etc., thereby removing the need for busy employees to search for information, create and layout the documents themselves.
Basically, a template gathers all the necessary information to generate a document automatically, thus removing the risk of error and allowing employees to transfer accurate information into document templates in just a few clicks. Some of the solutions offer features like e-signature and integration with cloud storage solution such as Salesforce, SharePoint, Box, Google Docs, Dropbox, and more.
A lot of document generation processes are also leveraging AI-driven technologies such as machine learning and natural language processing (NLP) which helps to intelligently pre-populate documents with relevant information.
Robotic Process Automation
Robotic process automation (RPA) enables enterprises to use preconfigured bots to perform routine and manual tasks instead of their employees doing it on their computer. These trained bots can quickly and cost-effectively automate routine tasks without the use of code in an easy-to-use drag and drop interface.
It’s even possible to build workflows which can now, delegate tasks to an RPA bot that can interact with apps, systems, and websites using the same screens as human workers. All these features help the employees to focus on more value added work, thus leaving the routine mundane tasks to the trained bots , who can perform these tasks faster and more accurately.
Most organizations run multiple processes across different systems like CRM, ERP, HR systems, collaboration apps, storage systems, legacy systems to name a few. All these systems are extensively used by employees to perform their work using emails and spreadsheets that get moved across these systems involving manual input. The manual workflow system results in bottlenecks and breakdowns in processes, thereby limiting the employees ability to perform and succeed.
Using automated workflow solutions, processes can be executed smoothly at every step across different departments. Integrating and automating these workflows delivers process optimization and improves employee satisfaction while increasing productivity .
Process analytics helps to measure the efficiency of your workflows with specific analytics tools, and track their performance to develop a benchmark for success. It helps to optimize and enhance the existing workflows.
Process analytics allows visibility into your business processes by tracking and measuring the status of the workflow instances, billable and non-billable workflow count, engagement, business impact, and more.
Workflow solutions for everyone
Each of these five workflow solutions can transform how your employees operate especially when your employees are spread across multiple geographies and new hybrid model workforce configuration is going to be the new normal.
