5. Improves customer engagement:
Whatever kind of services/products you offer, your customers need a way to reach out to you! An app will bridge this gap by providing a platform/medium for your customers to communicate with you. Also, the reviews of public on the app that are visible to your customers help build trust in your business amongst the customers (when the reviews are positive) or help you rectify any errors (in case the review is a negative one).
6. Helps you stand out of the competition:
These days, the mobile apps and small business level is still a little rare. This is where you can take a big leap ahead of your competitors!

Automation- Myth busted16-03-2019
Automation/Business Process Automation (BPA) is generally associated with manufacturing industries, but in reality, automation makes businesses in any domain to run smooth and efficient.
Automation in simple terms is managing information, data & processes to reduce costs, resources, and investment. It increases productivity by controlling key business processes through computing technology/software.
It involves initiation, execution, and completion while achieving enterprise-wide workflow efficiency.
Top 5 Reasons why automating your business is important and something that is worth being invested on:
Increased efficiency and stability: BPA is designed to maintain efficiency and increase the stability and operational productivity of an underutilized workforce by integrating business-critical software applications.
Reduces person hours: The right automation solution will reduce the number of labour hours that go into achieving a particular company goal.
Reduces error: Since automation is done through software or computer technology, the errors due to human interference, generally known as human errors get limited.
Customer consistency: With business process automation, customers will receive the same standard of care with every interaction.
Reduced costs and overhead: By diminishing errors and improving employee efficiency, companies often see a decrease in expenditures while simultaneously improving revenue.
Automation helps your business move with the trend, makes the process, faster, reliable and efficient (both in terms of cost and quality).
It can be vaguely said that business automation is the key to a successful business!
Challenges faced while automating business processes16-03-2019
Business process automation (BPA), as the name says is the automation of various processes that take place in a business. While on one hand, BPA has many perks that could help a business reach sky heights by streamlining the processes and reducing errors, there are a couple of challenges that one will face while bringing in Automation to their business.
Listed below are a few such challenges with solutions on how to overcome them:
Challenge 1: Integration of various systems and tools can be difficult
Automation that integrates multiple systems or business processes is mostly very helpful, but it also poses a significant challenge.
Solution: Take help from an experienced IT consultancy, so that they can guide you on choosing the right solutions which will enable easy integration of the systems thus maximizing the benefits of Business process automation.
Challenge 2: Automation usually brings in fear of job cuts
It is true that some automation can result in the loss of jobs for workers who only perform repetitive and easily automated tasks.
Solution: In reality, Automation actually opens up opportunities for many more workers. It actually provides them ample time to focus on customer relations, generate leads, improve the existing products/develop new products, or engage in other tasks that directly enhance the overall business growth.
Challenge 3: Automation needs constant follow up
When major changes are brought about in the processes, it is important to perform honest reviews of the cost and productivity benefits. This means establishing standards of pre-automation work compared to employee tasks and the business gains after automation.
Solution: Again, an IT consultancy will play an important role in guiding you on choosing the right processes for Business Process Automation, the ones that will produce clear long-term gains.
Challenge 4: Taking on Too Much at Once
When you have an efficient automation software, naturally you would want to put it to work right away. But trying to bring in changes in your business processes all at once can lead to confusion and disappointment.
Solution: It’s better to start with one clearly definable workflow, automate and test it, and then, once it proves its ability to withstand, choose another workflow to automate. You’re better off starting by automating simple, standalone processes before attempting to automate complex business processes.
Challenge 5: Automation Steps that are often taken for granted
Solution: To create automated workflows, you have to understand them thoroughly, on a step-by-step basis. The entire process must be defined in discrete steps so that the right conditions trigger the right sequential actions.
Types of Business Automation18-03-2019
Business Automation, commonly referred to as workflow automation, streamlines business processes, makes the processes faster and reduces error (due to the absence of human intervention)
In this blog, we shall discuss various types of business automation which can be primarily classified into four types:
Department Specialized Automation
The word robot usually brings up a picture of a mechanical figure with arms, but robotic automation does not involve the literal robot with arms and legs, it involves software robots that handle the business processes.
Robotic process automation (RPA) program is effectively designed to perform high-volume repetitive tasks at a much faster rate than that at the rate a human could perform and with minimal errors. While they perform routine tasks like data-entry and form checking with absolute efficiency, humans can perform tasks that involve creativity and strategic thinking. This way, the business can grow at a faster rate and expand into new horizons. Though this involves a high initial cost, in the long run, it will be extremely beneficial.
This type of automation is usually required in companies that are geographically widespread like they have multiple branches/stores or maybe separate businesses running under one parent company. In such companies, there would be a database that stores all the critical data related to the business. In the absence of database automation, the database administrator, along with storing all the information, will have to perform tasks like duplicating all the data in a cluster with minimal variations. Also, the Database administrator will have to be called upon again and again to perform more and more tasks. This will slow down the Database administrator and also the entire business.
The solution to this problem is to introduce database automation into the system. This way, the database administrator will have more time to handle tasks that involve manual entry. This not only makes the entire system faster but also reduces error.
Server automation is not very different from database automation. Just like companies have databases to handle and store business data, a server is present to manage the company’s application. In the absence of server automation, the server can take up a lot of time of the IT administrator. This yet again slows down the IT system in the company.
Server automation not only allows easy installation of new server software, but it also helps in easy inventory management and reduces the margin of error.
Department Specialized Automation:
Well, the above three types of automation may not fit into all departments of a business. With the technological era setting in and technology entering into every department of businesses in most domains, there is still some lacuna left. But nowadays, automation softwares can be customized to any department’s needs, be it HR, Finance, sales or marketing.
Automation at the department level leads to a significant cut down in time and cost as the process becomes fast, almost error free and very efficient.
