What to automate?

Reporting automation journey starts with the assessment of current business processes, their automation potential and selecting the pilot automation project. Good candidates for automation are manual and repetitive processes where decisions are made based on well-defined business rules. Some of such are processes that involve multiple functions, for example, Supply Chain, Master Data Management or HR.

Together with you we prepare automation opportunities mapping and go through risks and development opportunities of each process in interactive workshops. We select the most valuable processes for automation where investment will pay off soon.
