Digital transformation means is the process of using digital technologies to create new or to modify and simplify existing business processes and customer experiences to meet changing business and market requirements.
As we move from outdated systems and begin to create seamless, integrated systems and modernise processes to include smart applications for managing our business, we have the chance to change how we do business and ultimately how we engage our customers by leveraging on digital technology, both internally and externally.
This constant re-evaluation of business in the digital age is no longer a challenge, it’s a necessity.
Power Automate, formerly known as Microsoft Flow is a component of the Microsoft Power Platform that allows the business users to automate workflows within the organisations, streamlining mundane tasks and saving time without having to invest in expensive digital experience platforms, new systems or technology. Modern businesses are forever gearing up for a faster and automated environment to tackle most of the previously handled manual tasks. These tasks can be as simple as automating leave requests, payslips or sending an email.
The way we do business has changed drastically over the past two years. With WFH, in office or hybrid work models being introduced, time wasted on mundane and manual processes can lose valuable man hours as well as cause unnecessary frustration. Power Automate is the perfect money-saving solution to alleviate these issues.
With its tailor made solution that are guaranteed to keep your business equipped with the latest technology in system integration, Power Automate already comes in with several pre-defined templates to choose a workflow to start working with straight away.
Users can pick up any of these workflows from the templates or can also start building their own workflow from scratch. All these workflows can be further divided into three main types which are based on the trigger of any workflow as follows:
Automated Workflow – These types of workflows are triggered based on some other action. For example, send a mail when a task is completed.
Scheduled Workflow – These workflows are scheduled to execute at specific times of the day, week, or even month. Think payslips and other date driven tasks.
Button Workflow – These workflows are triggered by the click of the button, when and if required.
This means now is the time to be proactive. It has become critical to conserve cash for core activities and operational requirements within your business. If you have been wasting time on manual tasks and process that are vulnerable to human error, you may want to consider intergrating Power Automate.
