Businesses of every size have processes that keep their businesses running. Many of these processes, from invoice processing to insurance claims and contract reviews, are done manually and even still on paper or in email inboxes. Companies may not realize how negatively this is impacting their business. These manual processes slow the company down, making them inefficient and unproductive, while the rest of their industry is making their processes faster.
Paper records specifically, can take up large amounts of space and are time consuming to search through and work from. However, any document-driven process that may be slowing your company down can be automated. Examples of these business processes that can be automated include:
- Accounts Payable Invoice Processing
- Insurance Claims Processing
- Human Resource Documentation
- Benefit Enrollments
- New Hire Onboarding
- Contracts and Legal Documentation
- Digital Mailroom Services
There are an increasing amount of benefits to automating the manual processes in your business. From getting things done faster and cheaper, to increasing accuracy and reducing risk. As we’re all well aware, Artificial Intelligence and computers in general can perform at a much faster speed and with less error than human beings. This frees up your team to focus on tasks that will actually impact your bottom line, and also save you the cost of reworking processes that were riddled with human error. Allowing your employees to perform higher-level tasks also makes them feel more valuable and fulfilled, making them happier and your business more productive.
Process automation also ensures that processes and procedures are performed the correct and exact same
way every time, giving you critical and precise data. Automating your manual business processes also enables you to use that data when you might not have otherwise, such as when making informed business decisions. You’ll have the structured data and analysis to prove that you’re making the right decision for your business.
Other benefits of automating business processes include:
- Increased accountability
- Immediate ROI
- Increased data security
- Enhanced visibility and control
- And the ability to route documents automatically
Curious about how it works? Your documents, whether paper or electronic, are collected and then are scanned and uploaded into your system. Those documents and data are then routed automatically via a workflow to alert the correct person to complete the process. Your documents and data are then stored securely in the cloud and available for easy retrieval with the touch of a button.
