Without knowing it we have turned more and more into creatures of habit. Be it voluntarily or out of necessity.
Every day we are often completing the same tasks.
Automation is the use of electronics and computer-controlled devices to assume control of processes. The aim of automation is to boost efficiency and reliability.
While automation is best used on entire Process-Chains and big systems there are also smaller day-to-day things that can be automated.
Simple examples of what we can help automate:
Every business that offers services or products through observed entry in an access-restricted area uses some sort of management system for their clients.
A prime example for this is a gym. Every gym needs to control the monthly membership fees and allow or restrict access to the facility whether they have paid their fees or not.
In the more modern cases this is already done via some sort of membership card that will open a door automatically when presented to a card reader. Once a card has been scanned the system will consult the data saved in a database to allow access or not; fully automated. This can be supplemented with a payment system at the gym or online to fully automate the entire experience.
There are also very modern use cases for this: In some gyms face-recognition is used to consult the data. This eliminates the use of any membership card at all. With that saving costs and making it easier for the client.
To manage a chain of complex processes such as a logistics company, with subcontinental size and hundreds of customers, we need to ensure a total commitment to internal controls and reducing costs.
Only with the standardization and optimization of routines, together with increased controls, can you generate gains like these:
To stay competitive it is important to be able to price your services correctly. This only works if all processes are manageable and streamlined.
The emergence of Big Data largely changed the digital landscape and organizational operations. The disparity of data was effectively mitigated by its intensified analytics. With the evolution of newer trends in this realm, the technologies are getting polished. Automation of Big Data is the most disruptive technology changing its dominion completely. The power of Big Data lies in finding the patterns having some predictive values. It is further enhanced by automated processes that help in identification of some specific ‘data features’. These features help in making a predictive analysis of the data.
In short this means: Being able to analyse your processes automatically can help you see trends or find problems to make better operational decisions. With that, streamline your business and run it more efficiently.
Why is it successful?
As mentioned: The aim of automation is to boost efficiency and reliability. With that comes saving of time and cost which are essential in all business operations.
