First, let’s break up the question. If you’re still wondering what Business Automation is, then be sure to check out our handy definitions or download our Executive’s Guide to Automation eBook.Next, let’s focus on what you are investing. As a time-starved business executive, responsible for delivering complex products and services while managing the expectations of a growing customer base, your number one investment would be your precious time. Then, assuming you’ve managed to find the time, the next question is… is it worth investing your money? This blog post seeks to explain why investing both your time and money into business automation software is the smart thing to do as it is ultimately both your time and money that you will be saving in the long run.
Investing your time
When deployed the right way, the adoption of a new software tool doesn’t have to be a painful process. The business world is awash with stories of implementation nightmares that have resulted in countless rollbacks and false starts. With product specialists who understand the inner workings of their solution and who have the expertise to steer a project to completion with minimal unforeseen problems, new system implementations don’t have to be the stuff of nightmares. Of course, much of this depends on the software provider you choose, so be sure to investigate the reputation of both the product and those that are behind it.
Investing your money
Traditional software packages have involved massive capital investments for companies. In today’s software world, people are expecting more for less, with cheap month-to-month signups, little to no obligations and the option to terminate your service at the click of a button. But as is too often the case, if you pay peanuts, you get monkeys. However, the converse also need not be true. You don’t need to break the bank in order to deliver on your business automation needs. In fact, if implemented properly, your business automation software will show you a return on investment (ROI) sooner rather than later. By offering an end-to-end view of processes and allowing departments to work in close unison by integrating your disparate systems, you will find that your business automation software will help to reduce revenue leakage, speed up your time to market, increase your customer satisfaction, reduce your process complexity and increase your business visibility. Further ROI is seen by IT departments as a result of less complex infrastructure and licensing requirements - all of which helps to justify your spend.
