Automated workflow has been an overriding focus of manufacturing for decades. Marketing and sales automation has really come into vogue over the past ten years or so.
But smart businesses are now automating their workflow for all kinds business processes. In fact, a recent survey by Gartner Executive Programs of over a 1,000 COO’s found that their top business priority was business process improvement 1, of which business process automation was a key objective.
Most business processes and functions these days can be automated using software.
Here at Kintone, we’ve enabled companies to build custom business applications and automate all
sorts of business processes, including:
- sales leads management,
- inventory management,
- supply chain management,
- project management,
- expense reports,
- time sheets,
- asset management,
- fleet management,
- training operations,
- retail operations,
Automating processes can be simple and done quickly for little cost relative to the cost savings and benefits, in most cases. ROI can be almost instant.
With Kintone, the benefits can be further enhanced with our everywhere collaboration tools.
For example, Michael Callahan & Associates have experienced an incredible 6-fold productivity increase over the course of 2 years by fully implementing Kintone and automated workflow for their entire business process.
Automation streamlines the flow of the business, actually reduces workloads, lowers expenses, improves information access and transfer, improves management of supplies, services or tasks and adds to accountability and ultimately the bottom line profits of companies.
But again many smart businesses know all this. The difficulty sometimes comes in getting your team to adopt automated workflow.
