Automation – the booster in daily workhttps://appnavi.eu/wp-content/uploads/2022/07/AppNavi_News_Product_RPA_EN.jpg19201080Daniel BecksteinDaniel Becksteinhttps://appnavi.eu/wp-content/plugins/ultimate-member/assets/img/default_avatar.jpg
How automating unnecessary work steps speeds up employees while reducing error rates.
One of the goals of digitization is to eliminate redundant activities by automating individual work steps and replacing human labor.
The worst time wasters in everyday work are unnecessary actions and the obligatory “one click too many”. These cost companies vast amounts of time and therefore money every day. Especially when the unpopular click is made in an unfocused manner, mistakes happen quickly, which in turn cause expenses when they are eliminated.
Hidden and unnecessary costs that are easy to avoid if you know how. The remedy is the automation of processes through e.g. Robotic Process Automation, which is targeted by digitalization. But what is it exactly?
What is Robotic Process Automation?
Robotic Process Automation (RPA for short) is usually used when time-consuming, recurring and highly standardized activities are to be automated. These are often expensive and time-consuming projects that are performed by software through RPA. Since algorithms and automation follow stored and clearly defined rules, efficiency is increased and quality is improved. AppNavi has therefore integrated the idea of automation directly into the Digital Adoption Platform.
Between helpful training tool and comprehensive process automation
In the editor of routes, the digital adoption platform AppNavi offers the possibility to describe individual work steps, but also to automate them – even across applications. In detail, this means that each step within AppNavi can be declared as manual or automated. This includes the ability to set default or rule-based values for text fields. The user can then decide whether to run the route manually (step by step) or automatically. In the latter case, all steps declared as “automatic” are taken over by AppNavi. This relieves the user of tedious, repetitive tasks and speeds up his daily work.
From the practice
AppNavi was designed and simplified for departments. Authors can, without programming knowledge (this is referred to as low-code or no-code applications) and playfully describe work steps and then automate them as needed and with a click. This means that specialist departments, such as accounting, can clearly define how colleagues in the company can submit their documents and automate individual steps so that they meet the requirements of the accounting. By sending routes to specific recipients, authors can also specify that marketing, for example, can only post their receipts to specific accounts – thus preventing errors from occurring.
It’s the little things
With Robotic Process Automation (RPA), AppNavi is moving in the direction of process optimization without intervening too deeply in these processes, because companies often don’t even need elaborate and extensive process tools to meaningfully improve their own processes. In most cases, even the first assistance is sufficient to achieve demonstrable results.
With the possibility of Robotic Process Automation, AppNavi is more than just a tool to help employees with their daily software use, but a holistic solution to increase the efficiency of employees, processes and companies – so investments in Digital Adoption pay off several times over.
