Do any of the following sound familiar?
A custom business automation solution can pave the way for sustainable double-digit growth, while replacing manual work and disparate spreadsheets with efficient, reliable custom software. We’d like to help you build a solid foundation of extensible software that won’t need to be re-architected every 3 years to keep up with changes in your business. While every project is different, the fundamentals of building reliable, scalable, efficient software is the same. The process begins with a thorough investigation of your business needs. This helps avoid building something that’s not right for both your short and long-term goals.
Next, our team of senior software engineers gets to work. During the development process, we meet weekly and are in contact daily. You’ll always know in plain, easy-to-understand terms what’s going on with your project, when you can expect to go live, and how much it’s going to cost. Before you begin a business automation project, we’ve learned that it’s vital to have answers to the following questions. Use this short list of questions to make sure you’ve considered the issues that are absolutely critical to the success of the project:
- Do you have staff that spends a lot of time doing repeatable or redundant work that you feel could be automated? If so how much time do you estimate could be saved if those things were automated or made more efficient?
- Do you feel you have processes in your company that are overly complex, error prone, and are difficult to train employees on involving software?
- If so, describe those processes and also list the negative consequences of their complexity (i.e. mistakes lead to decreased customer satisfaction, missed sales opportunities, increased costs, higher employee turnover, increased lead time to bring on new clients, etc.)
- If you were able to simplify and automate complex and labor intensive processes in your business, what would be the positive consequences?
- Do you have paper based manual processes where it’s difficult to track what’s going on at any given time and/or report on how smoothly those processes are running?
- If you could create reports around those processes or track specific things what would you report on and what would you track?
