Is Your Firm Too Reliant on Spreadsheets?

While automation has gained more and more speed in recent years, many asset management firms continue to rely on spreadsheets for at least some of their operations. This spreadsheet dependence is often born through workarounds that are created when the normal IT channels aren’t able to meet needed deadlines.

Process and Technology Drift: 6 Steps to Efficiency

Designing and implementing superior processes supported by top technology may yield valuable business results, but taking a “set it and forget it” mentality can lead to process drift. The deterioration can be subtle and happen slowly, but over time erodes margins. Because that erosion is not noticeable until it reaches a level of emergency, the importance of preventative maintenance can get lost in the argument of “if we’re hitting our goals, everything is fine.” However, even small improvements can have a big impact and allow teams to not only hit goals but surpass them.

The Benefits of Intelligent Document Processing

Intelligent Document Processing (IDP) enables businesses to accept end-customer data in any form and turn the written word into actionable and decision-ready data.

Embedding AI in the front of your automation strategy means data is intelligently extracted and routed for decision making, and work is prioritized and contextualized based on data to fit directly into current business processes, improving every downstream workflow.

3 Trends in Automation: Evolving to a New Normal

Many organizations have accelerated their plans for digital transformation, driven largely by the COVID-19 pandemic and remote work conditions that appear to be the “new normal” moving forward. In the face of the “great resignation,” there is an increasing emphasis on and benefit from adapting to hybrid models of employees working both in the office and from home on a more permanent basis. The growth of those hybrid workforces is in turn driving the need for more efficiency. As a result, organizations are relying more heavily on process mining and AI to achieve their operational goals.
