Enterprises Are Switching To Workflow Automation: Here’s Why


According to McKinsey & Company’s analysis, “about 60 percent of occupations could have 30 percent or more of their constituent activities automated.” The statistics also claim that the “activities consuming more than 20 percent of a CEO’s working time could be automated using current technologies. These include analyzing reports and data to inform operational decisions, preparing staff assignments, and reviewing status reports.”

In its report, McKinsey & Company also states that “in many cases, automation technology can already match, or even exceed, the median level of human performance required.”

Beyond the points the McKinsey & Company made, automating manual tasks and connecting disparate systems will allow your team to focus on your key differentiators. Here are some of the benefits of embracing an integration powered microservice approach: 

Increases productivity

Automating manual tasks using workflows allows employees to invest their time in important tasks by saving the hours that were spent on manual, repetitive tasks. For example, by automating the hiring process, the Human Resources team can focus on selecting the right candidate instead of losing time on organizing the candidate’s data collected from various sources during the shortlisting process. 

Better coordination and communication 

To explain this better, let’s look at typical sales teams. Sales representatives, due to the workload, updates across applications are often delayed. This may result in multiple people working on the same lead or delayed responses because systems haven’t been updated. With workflow automation, you can have your sales CRM tools updated automatically in real-time, allowing your team to work efficiently and automate tasks like updating systems so that handoffs are smooth. This will avoid confusion, resulting in better coordination and communication across the team. 

Reduces human errors 

Human errors are unavoidable. With automated workflows, repetitive tasks and syncing operations can be completely automated to remove any chance of human error. 

Streamlines processes 

Workflow automation helps the key members to identify bottlenecks and monitor the performance hence making it easier to streamline the process. Workflow automation reduces human errors and allows employees to allot time to essential tasks; the outcome of which is, undoubtedly, increased revenues. As employees focus on tasks that are targeted towards profit, the revenues progressively improve.
