In a previous blog, we introduced how digital transformation is possible with the right technological framework, and how such transformation can help grow your business.
Now that you’re looking to move in that direction, or you’ve already decided to spearhead a project, you must consider an important aspect of digital transformation: integrating and automating your business processes.
While this can seem like a vast undertaking, we recommend focusing on automating tasks involved with client, supplier and prospect interaction. Improving communication and collaboration steps will free up more time for you and your team to be more proactive with your clients and help grow your business overall.
Business growth is as elusive as it is critical, in part because growing your business requires risk - the risk of disruption. For a business to transform from its "old way" of operating and become a transformed digital business involves integrating and automating - or altering - its culture and its most critical business processes.
Some business processes involved in digital transformation include end-to-end customer relationship management, supply chain management, human resources, manufacturing and sales. Automating these business processes eliminates tedious manual tasks, enabling stakeholders like leadership, sales and support teams to provide more substantial and customer client interaction.
While making such changes can be scary, an interview on digital transformation with the University of Pennsylvania Wharton School concluded unwillingness to transform likely means "game over" for a business. Without the ability to change with and in response to the market, you will lose customers to the competition.
Conversely, automation can improve productivity by 40%. By taking the leap into digital transformation and automating your business processes, your company will thrive.
