Automated Work Processes Empower Teams

Ashley Sava

Do you realize how many hours you are losing completing manual, mundane tasks at work? When it comes to time and money, both can be wasted. Waste money, you can always make more. Waste time, you can never get it back. What if you could spend your hours in the office on the rewarding duties that you were hired to perform, instead of tedious, repetitive tasks such as data entry?

That’s where automation comes in. Automation alleviates those drone duties and empower workers to devote their workdays to the more human, gratifying aspects of their jobs that directly contribute to the success of the company, and in turn, the employee’s career potential.

But isn’t automation complicated? Well, it certainly can be. The struggle in enabling automation is that most work management systems require technical expertise to configure automated processes. In these cases, workers must be patient as their demand is likely one of several on an IT department’s lengthy list of requests. The frustrations spark if the newly automated process fails to meet the user’s expectations, as the requester will need to go back to IT to write new code or to reconfigure the correct system steps.

Here’s the thing: automation can be much simpler than this. Unlike other work management platforms, Pipefy enables users to automate processes on their own—regardless of just how tech-savvy they are. Non-technical users feel comfortable using Pipefy to write their everyday processes without the assistance of the IT department. Rather than demanding daunting codes or intricate formulas, Pipefy gives users the capability to automate processes by merely stipulating clear and defined rules. This benefits businesses by:

  • Enabling Productive Collaboration: Keep track of all your team’s tasks: who’s doing what, which items are being prioritized, when each assignment is due, etc. and stop wasting time reminding others of due dates and wondering who was assigned what. With Pipefy, you can manage all aspects of the task, such as priority, due date, resources and essential information by creating required fields on your start form and the process’ phases to make sure all necessary information is provided to keep track of all tasks. Teams can focus on top priority items and on executing them. Planning, coordinating and monitoring work progress has never been more straightforward.
  • Empowering Teams: No one can tailor unique work processes to fit immediate needs better than the ones working on them daily. Let your IT team focus on system integrations and complicated process and empower your team to establish best practices specific to their responsibilities and goals. Encouraging teams to become responsible for improvements that yield immediate business impact is the key to success.
  • Accelerating Work: Stop waiting around and take matters into your own hands. Pipefy users can automate workflows at a moment’s notice. By eliminating the “middle man,” teams can meet or exceed their goals much faster.
  • Providing Room for Growth: As processes evolve and change, a flexible system is critical. Pipefy customers can instantly adapt and adjust their automated processes to grow with their clients, business and teams. Customization and flexibility make Pipefy what it is. Edit and customize virtually everything about your processes from defining the number of phases a process has, to adding key fields to each phase.
