SharePoint automation makes processes work faster, which is ideal for companies that want to streamline their business operations. Automation can save you lots of time and money, resulting in substantial cost savings and increased revenue.

Which Processes Should You Automate?

There’s no doubt that SharePoint automation will surely improve your company’s processes, if it’s done in a strategic way. While automation will certainly help increase your company’s workflow, it’s best to speak to a professional SharePoint consultant to advise you which kind of process will render the most efficient automation results.

 What’s the Point of Automating Your Business?

The eSoftware Associates team understands that not every business is sold on automating their processes. Some companies are comfortable carrying out manual tasks—because quite honestly, they work! However, because these tasks are conducted manually, the risk of human error is very likely.   In addition to human error, there is also more reliance on individual people to complete certain tasks.  If someone calls in sick, this can disrupt an entire process, rippling into unfulfilled or delayed tasks, which negatively affects your productivity and revenue.

For those who are still somewhat skeptical about SharePoint automation, we’ve provided 4 reasons companies like yours should implement an automation process into their operation.

  1. Increases Efficiency

Automation allows for a quicker execution of data, resulting in a smoother workflow free of errors, bugs, or glitches. Something as simple as a using a template that auto fills in data stored in the cloud that is then ready to print.  This can be executed in seconds— significantly reducing the time that it would take for a manual process to complete.

  1. Inventory Management

Automation can take care of everything from processing orders, the logistics of shipping and handling, to keeping track of outgoing and incoming inventory. An automated SharePoint management system will allow you to store all of your invoices in a cloud-based system, eliminating the need for paper and filing cabinets. With a customized SharePoint platform, you’ll also have the resources to research new products and, , seamlessly add them to your existing inventory, if you so choose.

  1. Organize Human Resource Documents

Due to the amount of day-to-day volume of activity, many human resources department can quickly become disorganized, especially for a growing company. Keeping track of payroll and payroll-related information such as taxes, social security, 401K profit sharing, etc. are all essential to keep your operation afloat. Other operations such as annual evaluations along with onboarding and off-boarding processes are important to maintain as well.  SharePoint can help organize all of this and more!

  1. Tracking Tickets

If you’re operating a business that is highly oriented in customer service, implementing an automated ticketing system will be the best solution for your operation. Your team will be able to better manage and address all of the issues from your customers. We can design a process that automatically notifies a specific department or team member based on the type of issue.
