What is task automation ?

Task automation is a process by which an organization uses computer systems to perform actions without human intervention. These actions can range from simple time-consuming tasks to more complex processes requiring thorough analysis.

Task automation can be achieved through advanced technologies such as SaaS (Software as a Service), artificial intelligence, machine learning, or IoT (Internet of Things). The goal of automation is to eliminate, or at least minimize, direct human involvement in the execution of certain activities to gain efficiency. Its implementation varies depending on the needs and structures.

For example, in the field of human resources, automation can be used to process leave requests or automatically generate performance reports. In quality management, task automation allows real-time data collection to trigger automatic corrections if necessary. This innovation represents a major revolution in the management of daily operations.

What are the advantages of task automation ?

The benefits of task automation are numerous. It not only frees up time for workers by eliminating routine tasks but also enhances their accuracy. Indeed, the automatic collection and transcription of data prevent errors and streamline resources.

Cost reduction

Task automation is a critical factor for the profitability of the company. On one hand, this process significantly reduces unnecessary labor costs and charges related to daily work. For instance, if an employee used to spend 2 hours a day collecting attendance sheets, now everything is done automatically in a few seconds. If an operations manager used to drive 100km per day to check consumables levels, now they are remotely alerted in real-time about potential shortages.

In addition to the saved labor costs, this system helps secure your client relationships and thus prevents disputes. Automated machines are programmed to perform tasks precisely and consistently. The risk of errors is almost nonexistent, and so are the associated costs. If a light bulb goes out at the reception, a nearby agent is immediately alerted to intervene, keeping your customer satisfaction rate high.

Finally, task automation promotes better responsiveness to market changes. Organizations use resources more efficiently, minimizing waste and optimizing production processes. Automated systems can be easily reconfigured to adapt to organizational or regulatory changes.

Individual and collective productivity

On one hand, automated tasks can be performed 24/7, without interruption or breaks. A simple task that required two employees can now be carried out day and night seamlessly by a computer tool. The time savings are considerable, and the overall productivity of the organization is greatly boosted!

On the other hand, task automation enhances individual productivity. No need to waste time on low-value tasks; now, employees can focus on more strategic aspects of their roles. An HR manager can concentrate on developing employees’ skills rather than formalizing payroll sheets. A customer relations manager can implement loyalty actions instead of dealing with constant disputes.

Improvement of service quality

Finally, task automation can also contribute to the improvement of service quality in various sectors. Automated systems provide continuous services without variations related to human fatigue, moods, or other subjective factors. The customer experience is thus more consistent, and waiting times are reduced.

Furthermore, automation allows for the rapid analysis of vast amounts of data. Companies can quickly identify trends and user preferences. The services offered are personalized based on customer behaviors. Moreover, automated systems easily adapt to fluctuations in demand. Automation ensures a quality service delivery even during peak periods.

When AI is at the service of task automation

MoveWORK has developed a unique automated module for the replacements of service agents within the Armonia group.

How to choose the tasks to automate in my company?

Task automation must be implemented thoughtfully. To automate operational processes, it is crucial to consider human aspects in the equation. Human supervision and user-centered design are critical to ensuring the success of automation and the improvement of service quality.

Here are some steps to follow for informed decision-making :

  1. Analysis of existing processes: Identify repetitive, time-consuming, error-prone, or highly precise tasks
  2. Strategic objectives: Why automate tasks? To improve daily team operations? To ensure compliance? The tasks to be automated will vary based on your needs
  3. Prioritization: Rank identified tasks based on their impact on business outcomes. Start by automating tasks that will bring the greatest advantage in terms of time, cost, or quality
  4. Complexity and feasibility: Ensure that the necessary technology is available and affordable. Some tasks may be more easily automated than others
  5. Consultation and staff training: Involve employees in the decision-making process. They can provide crucial insights into daily challenges, critical aspects, and improvement opportunities. Plan for a smooth transition for full adoption of new tools
  6. Cost-effectiveness: Evaluate the return on investment (ROI) of task automation to remain profitable in the short, medium, and long term
  7. Testing and continuous adjustment: Conduct pilot tests to assess the effectiveness of automation before full-scale implementation. Therefore, plan mechanisms to continually assess and adjust your automated solutions based on evolving business needs

By following these steps, you can develop an effective task automation strategy that minimizes risks for your business.
