Automation 101

Contrary to popular belief, automation is essentially nothing new. Throughout the years, various manual processes have been automated to help businesses keep up with demand, mitigate human error, and ensure time is efficiently used. The printing press, sewing machine, and mechanical car assembly line are a few examples of how some forms of automation have made lasting impacts in business today.

However, automation is far from reaching its pinnacle. With new technology like Robotic Process Automation, mundane technological tasks can now be streamlined using internal digital bots. The future of automation is growing rapidly, and evolving in various areas of the business. Understanding the basic fundamentals of automation is the first step in building out and executing an innovative workforce.
