A Quick Overview of Business Process Automation & Intelligent Process Optimization – The Benefits and What Can Be Automated?


What Does Business Process Automation Do For You

Business Process Automation (BPA) (sometimes called Intelligent Business Automation, IT Process Automation or Process Optimization) implements technology to orchestrate business processes and minimize human intervention. Unlike salesforce or other off-the-shelf solutions, BPA customizes a solution to your workflows and helps to eliminate manual errors, verifies compliance with laws unique to your business that may be missed, generates efficiencies that deliver consistencies through standardization, and makes your employee’s life more satisfying and less stressful, improving retention.


The Immediate Benefits of Business Process Automation

The benefits are entirely different for each industry. Still, the results are astoundingly similar – removing human error from the system and eliminating manual entry after the customer or employee’s initial contact saves time and minimize mistakes. In addition, you generate proprietary real-time data that can be collected and modeled instantly. Imagine the power of forecasting predictive maintenance, identifying buying patterns that were not available earlier, and understanding your customer better.


We Bring Exceptional Value At A Fair Price for BPA

Almost any repetitive task can be automated. Think of any high-volume area within your business that must follow compliance laws, is time-sensitive, or generates recurring data. These are perfect candidates for BPA. Examples include.

  • Decision-Making Automation Helps Employees Follow Standards
  • Robotic Process Automation (RPA) Eliminates Repetitive Tasks
  • Workflow Automation Helps Eliminate Common Manual Errors & Combine Departments
  • Data-Collection Automation Helps Format Data For Instant Modeling
  • Understand The ROI On Your Workflow Automation Investment!

    Have you ever wondered how much your manual tasks cost and how long it will take to achieve a return on your investment in automation? Understanding the numbers will set the stage for a good strategy and validate that the journey is worth the investment. Walk through the calculator yourself or let one of our field specialists estimate your project so you know how long it will take to repay your investment and start saving money.

    Why Is Intelligent Process Automation The Future?


    • The most significant benefit of IPA & BPA is increased productivity and decreased costs associated with specific tasks. Software may have a lifecycle, but when it is up-to-date, it does not require time off, does not make mistakes, hits your deadlines, and impacts your bottom line with an ROI worth celebrating.

    • Cost reduction is an essential benefit of Intelligent Process Automation. Time-related tasks are reduced in time and stress. Moreover, personnel expenses related to repetitive work are eliminated, allowing for more satisfying work and better retention of key employees.


    • As business changes, the software adjusts. This elasticity does not fight change. Well-developed software provides output immediately and links your entire company together so the benefits discovered by one department can be realized by another.


    • Proprietary data creation will add predictive modeling, machine learning, and artificial intelligence to your business process. Suppose your data is still on spreadsheets or collected without consideration for its potential as a proprietary edge over the competition. In that case, we can ensure your data is collected and configured to be used across the company as a valuable enterprise resource.

    Where Should You Start?


    • Determine Your Company’s Appetite For Automated Improvements.

      Determine the mood of your organization toward automation. Buy-in from key stakeholders is required. Business Process Automation changes how work gets done and can generate fear that jobs will be eliminated rather than create a more efficient and enjoyable workplace. 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 Automation.
      There are two items to consider. (1) The first is that processes take considerable time and are repetitive. The repetition can be spread over hours or days, but a job is typically based on repeat. (2) The second item to consider is what is being generated from the process. If data is the result, stakes are higher because all data generated and collected in the correct form allows your business leaders to predict upcoming events and forecast more accurately.

    • Identify Specific Steps Within Each Targeted Process For Automation.
      After identifying potential processes for automation, outline the specific steps within each process. Once clearly outlined, consider areas within these steps for improvement or elimination. Once drafted, try and identify the time to enact, from beginning to end; this will allow you to calculate the time saved by automating the entire or portions of the process. Finally, evaluate each step to determine if it is worth the investment to automate.

    • Identify Quick Wins And Areas For Long-Term Expansion And Sustained Growth!
      To show the benefit of automating your manual process, in the beginning, select small projects that contain strategies that take up considerable time but deliver significant returns. Success leads to more success and cross-organizational support. In addition, think ahead to where automation can impact growth. Finally, automation allows communication between departments and leaders, making important decisions.

    • Additional Expenses Relate To Your Tasks, But The Future Is Efficiency.
      It is essential to understand that parts of a workflow will always include manual tasks, and your feasibility study will discover additional costs that offset some savings. However, no matter what you find in the end, business is changing, and the more automation you can include in your daily task load, the more efficient you will become, impacting the bottom line.
