Automation: Increasing Efficiency, Reducing Cost

Despite what you may have heard, automation isn’t going to replace all your staffing, or run your business for you, but it can be a great tool in efficiency and decreasing the costs of running your business.

Advantages commonly attributed to automation include higher production rates and increased productivity, higher sales closing rate, more efficient use of materials, better product quality, improved safety, shorter workweeks for labour, and reduced factory lead times. Such operational flexibility lends stability and translates to extending better customer service, which results in loyal customers happy to continue doing business with you.

When establishing automation businesses shouldn’t have rose-colored glasses prior to implementing automation. Setting plans and bringing about the entire processes to automation can be satisfying. However, It isn’t the end-all-be-all of work. Automation technology needs to be frequently updated, and still requires some maintenance on the back-end. Still, with well-organized information within easy access, employees will save a substantial amount of time attending to their jobs.
