Today, businesses look to workflow automation to make themselves more efficient and increase productivity, accuracy, and profitability.
Small businesses often don’t have the staff to perform all the daily tasks required in running a business. Small business owners are often overstretched between sales, support, and billing. So, automating aspects of their business makes sense.
The term “workflow” refers to a set of steps that are taken to complete a particular task or series of tasks. Workflows are often automated with new tech tools – like Nagging Panda!
Here are 5 Impacts and benefits of workflow automation
Workflow automation enhances productivity. Mundane tasks can take time away from activities that generate revenue for your business, including manually sending payment reminders to customers, following up on quotations, and referring non-paying customers to a debt collector. These tasks are essential in your business, but all take a considerable amount of time and effort. Automating these tasks will increase your productivity and efficiency and help you generate more profit.
2. Cost-saving/ Decrease expenditures
Costs need to be kept as low as possible for profits within any business. By automating specific tasks, the need to have additional employee expenses is lowered. Staff costs contribute as the number one expense in many companies, and automation helps reduce these costs.
3. Reduce administrative errors/oversight
Human emotion can often get the better of us and sometimes spill into our work environments and affect work outcomes. This can lead to fatal errors for a business. Automated Systems will not forget to follow up on an overdue payment or neglect to follow up on quotations sent. They don’t take holidays, or breaks, or lose focus. They do as they are instructed and don’t lose their cool.
4. Improve and protect your cash flow
Automating payment reminders gets invoices paid faster, improving your cash flow, and helping maintain good relationships with your client.
5. Increases scalability
As your business grows, you will likely send more invoices. Automation will ensure that all invoices and quotes are followed up timeously – before, on, and after the due date – making sure you are on top of your game and portraying business professionalism.
However, one of the disadvantages is that workflow automation can be expensive and not user-friendly!
