The Value of Business Automation


Business automation involves automating complex and redundant steps from your business processes and modernizing them in order to maintain simplicity and increase productivity. To put in simple words, Automating Business processes is an innovative method to put systems in place for critical business processes. How can we automate business processes? This is the multi-million dollar question on the minds of several business executives around the world.

Before we get into how we can automate our business processes, let’s discuss some of the effects of automating your business.

Like I have stated previously, automation involves removing the bottlenecks around the business processes thus making them simpler and more efficient. Businesses that automate their process usually cost down on operational costs and as such human resources are now handled which in turn reduces the risk of human errors.

Automating businesses involves identifying the tasks that must be accomplished in order to complete production in the business process.  Automating your business examines your whole business process in general and takes a look at the part of your business that could be accomplished by making use of technology and technological tools rather than humans.

Here some reasons why you should consider automating your business processes. 

  1. Minimize Human errors and costs: By replacing human weakness with the efficiency of a computer you have succeeded in removing the associated costs linked to inefficiency and manual error.
  2. Modernize communication: Getting everyone in sync is paramount to the business process, automating the workflow allows for different individuals working on a project to get an idea of what the status of that project is in real time. There are software that provides a dashboard for collaboration and enables members of a team to view all request in real time.
  3. Keeps you informed about your business processes: Automating your business processes doesn’t only provide you with information about the status of any ongoing task or process, it also provides you with a holistic view of the entire system. Automating your business means you can track the number of request that comes in your business and how many were fulfilled and the number that wasn’t, how much time was spent executing a task and which tasks are more difficult to complete.
  4. Implements accountability: Automating your business means there is always someone responsible at each stage of the process. There is someone who initiates the process, another who approves or reject the process, all tasks are usually left for someone to carry out an action. Allowing this level of openness in your business ensures that all stakeholders are accountable for their actions.

At this point, it is safe to say that you now have a clearer understanding of what is involved in automating your business, the effects of automating your business and the benefits you stand to derive if you automate your business. The next question now would be how can I automate my business? There are several tools and applications out there that can help you to automate your business. However, if your business involves you maintaining an inventory, I suggest you make use of the enormous features the EMERGE App has to offer.

A large number of people feel that inventory management only deals with keeping tabs on raw materials and sales. If you are one of them, I would urge you to have a rethink. Inventory control has to do with taking care of all associated costs accrued by your company. Not being able to keep up with these costs could lead to the downfall of your business.

Being able to monitor all these required numbers could be an overwhelming task and sometimes could take your eyes of other important areas of your business. This is one of the reasons why the EMERGE App was created. EMERGE App is a web-based application that provides users with several options to keep an eye on their business. It is ideal for both small scale and medium scale businesses, being a web-based application, users can have access from anywhere in the world as long as the user is connected to internet.

EMERGE App also allows you to monitor your inventory and it takes into account changes that occur in stock, from movement to sales. It has a multi-channel inventory that allows you to keep track of inventory across multiple channels.  The EMERGE App also allows file sharing which allows collaboration amongst employees, the app also provides multi-currency support which allows users to carry out businesses in different countries and currencies.
