Before implementing automation, there are some previous steps to consider. Besides the technical details, it is important to take in account the way the employees would interact with the software and the changes that will be made in the workflow.
How will automation change your company’s routine?
Once the repetitive tasks are automated, make an action plan with the new responsibilities that each employee will undertake.
Help your team with the changes
Adapting to change is not easy for everyone. Introduce the benefits for the company and the improvements in their daily routine that automation will provide. Training is also essential so that the employees can manage their new tasks once automation is implemented.
Do you fully understand the potential of automating your business processes? By getting to know all the possibilities that automation has to offer according to your workflow it becomes easier to detect further opportunities, risks and possible challenges.
Focus on business objectives
What is it that you want to achieve? Having a clear idea of the business objectives helps to focus all the effort and resources needed to accomplish the goal. It's also important to calculate the ROI of automation. Knowing the time and costs invested in each process will give you an idea of the major breakthrough that automation is giving to your company
