— Overview, Process & Tips —
Intertech’s specialized teams work in universal best practices, no matter the framework or technology required, whether concerned with security or dealing with workarounds because the software is outdated or not meant for the task at hand.
Intertech consultants upgrade and create new solutions that impact decisions in the boardroom based on your proprietary data and help to identify hidden issues while speeding up your business processes that impact customers and employees.
If You Can Think It Up, We Can Help You Build It. If It’s Already In Place And Needs To Be Updated… We Can Do That Too!
Our team leaders listen to your ideas, identify solutions that fit your requirements, and propose technology upgrades or new technologies, toolsets, and libraries suited to your environment.
Intertech follows a proven process that ensures that all bases are covered, whether our consultants are taking on the project by themselves, we are working with someone else’s consultants, or teamed up with your employees. Next, we get to work using universally accepted development best practices and document each step so you realize an end product that does what you need and is maintainable. And finally, if requested, we can suggest ways to collect and filter your proprietary data so you put it to work through predictive modeling and process automation, reducing manual errors, increasing efficiency, and helping with more accurate forecasting.
If It Is Repetitive, We Can Probably Automate It.
Almost any area that is repetitive can be automated. These areas can fall under clerical tasks, customer service, global manufacturing, support services, data modeling, compliance, and just about anything you can think of that is repetitive, based on timing, or links to historical precedence.
For example, consider any high-volume area within your department or across the company that may have to follow compliance laws, is time-sensitive or generates recurring data. BPA can reduce the time related to these tasks. Moreover, personal expenses related to repetitive work can be eliminated, allowing for more satisfying and less stressful work conditions. As your business changes, the software can adjust, and this elasticity does not fight change. Well-developed software provides output immediately and links your entire company together, so everyone realizes the benefits discovered.
Determine Where Automation Fits Into Your Business Process.
Ask These Questions
Question #1 – Do you currently have a set of tasks that follow specific rules? Most repetitive tasks are based on a set of rules. When programmed into the software these rules allow the application to take over and increase efficiency while providing consistent data across the process, improving accuracy and efficiency.
Question #2 – Does the task have anticipated inputs and outputs? Even if the input and output have multiple options, it is still redundant. It can be designed to react specifically to each condition, eliminating time to respond and providing a seamless transition forward.
Question #3 – Does the task have multiple repetitive steps? Collecting and evaluating content can be laborious. By automating steps to react to specific responses, the data can be collected, evaluated, and calculated in a split second while instantaneously analyzed and stored for AI and decision-making later.
Ask Yourself If The Benefits Are Worth The Investment Before Proceeding.
When it comes time to invest in a new application, the software feasibility study is crucial in understanding what you need. Before making a decision, it is essential to understand the current situation, pinpoint the pain points, and work with an experienced technical asset to assess the various options available to you. Next run your numbers through an ROI calculator.
Rule #1: If a prepackaged Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution does what you need, it should be considered. However, any Software-as-a-Service will begin to dictate your decisions, hamstring you to a solution that may appear less expensive but, in the end, require time-consuming process changes and additional services to do what you wanted in the first place.
Determine Your Company's Appetite For Updates & Automated Improvements
Determine the mood of your organization toward upgrades and automation. Buy-in from key stakeholders is required. Software upgrades and process automation changes impact how work gets done and can generate fear that jobs will be eliminated rather than create a more efficient and enjoyable workplace. And when considering budget make sure to calculate ROI over a realistic period, understanding that your business will need to rely on automation to stay competitive.
Identify Processes That May Lend Themselves To Upgrades & Automation
There are two items to consider. The first one is which of your processes take up considerable time and are repetitive. The repetition can be spread over hours or days, but it is likely they can be eliminated. The second item to consider is what is being generated from the current process. If data is the result, stakes are higher because all data generated should allow your business leaders to peer into the future, helping steer the company based on accurate data.
