Workflow automation is an increasingly important factor in productivity. A research report from Formstack released this year found that half of managers are spending the equivalent of one full workday each week on administrative tasks, many of which could be automated. And 44 per cent of managers reported that their workplace has invested significantly in workflow automation tools within the past two years.
Managers are spending significant amounts of time, up to half of the average workday, on administrative tasks. In many cases, these tasks could be automated.
“Few business owners really grasp the concepts of what automation in technology can do,” said Martin Webb, a founder of Tudodesk. “When they start a business or look to grow it, they instantly assume the problem they need to solve is by hiring help.”
There are times when automating repetitive or administrative tasks can free up time and mental space, allowing for focus on more important matters.
