Why now is the best time for your organisation to embrace intelligent automation

Posted by Allan Hendry

It’s not just about making things easier, it’s about making things smarter.

Seventy-three percent of organisations have adopted some sort of automation technology for their business, and with good reason. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, many companies are having to adapt to smaller budgets and decreased workflow. Yet, they’re still expected to reach the same output. That’s why executives are investing in automation and creating enterprise-wide intelligent automation strategies to go with it.

Many assume that automation is too costly or too complex to implement. But, with potentially huge returns on investmentand more readily available tech than ever before, it can be much simpler than you think.

Let’s explore why now is the perfect time to embrace intelligent automation.

What is intelligent automation and what are the benefits?

Robotic Process Automation

If you’ve ever wished that you could just sack off all those monotonous tasks that bog down your employees, automation is the answer. Using robotic process automation (RPA), you can automate many of your day-to-day business processes, reducing wasted time and boosting productivity.

RPA is the foundation of a well-automated system. It lays the groundwork for more intelligent automation. Right now, two-thirds of businesses are in the early stages of process automation.

Artificial Intelligence

A sprinkle of AI over your automation can really seal the deal. Incorporating AI functions such as Natural Languagepowered chatbots, text mining and deep learning will really personalise a customer experience.

In a global survey, 56 percent of companies surveyed said they have adopted some sort of AI into their business. Not only that, two-thirds say they’re looking to increase their AI investment in the future. So, adopting intelligent automation quickly is key in remaining competitive.

Smarter businesses

Nearly three-quarters of businesses using automation are ‘very’ or ‘entirely’ satisfied with the returns to date, so it’s clear that this isn’t some fleeting trend. It’s intelligent business decision-making.
