Why You Can and Should Automate Business Processes Today

“Automation is to your time what compounding interest is to your money”

Ever got excited about automating a process or adding new software solutions to your operations, only to be put off by the price?

And we are not even mentioning maintenance costs that follow…

Today custom development and business automation can be much more affordable. The majority of our everyday development requirements tend be straight forward and around common systems. Examples of this are distributing files and emails, connecting data from separate systems, spreadsheet operations or automating repetitive human tasks. Technologists have noticed this trend and created software development platforms, especially on the cloud, to remove the development challenges and the need for highly skilled programmers, resulting in a profound positive impact on capital investment.

Where companies prefer to stick to traditional development practices because of the fear of the unknown, the interventions are very often capital intensive and can’t be justified against any savings generated by the implementation.

By leveraging newer technology and development methods for my clients, I have managed to consistently price my solutions between 40% and 60% lower than competitors, resulting in return on investment that is positive for all stakeholders. Additional benefits to clients are:

  • Shorter development timelines
  • Cheaper maintenance and future expansion
  • Greater focus on practical business applications
  • Less time wastage on technical challenges

In order to cut your operating costs and reduce human-error, you should be looking at automating repetitive tasks that are consuming unnecessary man-hours.  If you would like to know more on business automation, contact me at marius@fortyone.co.za.
