"Digital transformation" has been making the rounds for some time now, so why is now a good time to get started?
1. Lightweight, mostly hands off projects abound
When you work with DTI, we roll up our sleeves and do the work. A digital transformation project sounds daunting, but truth be told AP automation, certain kinds of bots, and other projects take weeks or a few months to stand up with little to no disruption to your team.
2. Know your ROI in advance
In today's topsy turvy business climate, there are very few sure things. One of the key reasons to get started is in a world of uncertainty, we can calculate your cost of doing business as usual, compare that to what you would expect to save from automation, and you will have a pretty good sense about the time that it will take for the project to pay for itself.
3. A rising tide lifts all boats
At the risk of dragging out a tired, trite phrase, automation is a win-win or even a win-win-win. The business itself wins from lower operational costs and more accurate back office operations. Employees win by becoming more satisfied in their jobs as they focus on interesting, high value work. Customers win with quicker turnaround times and customer service.
4. Data security is more important now than ever
Access controls, audit trails, and document retention are all data security tools that automation gives you more and better access to. We also work with and recommend ITS to augment your content management security protocols with a strategic, cybersecurity plan. Watch our recent interview with ITS to get some actionable tips for a more secure organization.
5. Automation = Productivity
This is a bit of a no-brainer, but with inflation, a tight labor market, and it being harder for businesses to access capital, productivity is paramount.
Automating manual, intensive processes such as Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable, Human Resources, and other critical business applications enable you to streamline operations, reduce costs, and increase productivity.
If you have gotten this far you may be wondering what's next? We can help you assess what digital transformation projects will bring the most benefit to your organization, calculate your return on investment, and most importantly, turn the idea into reality.
