Automation is key to finding success in today’s marketplace

By: John Hansen

Study after study shows that businesses that rely on manual processes, regardless of the level or quality of staff, have incident rates far higher than businesses that employ automated solutions. These incidents can expose banks and their customers to financial loss, or worse.

Additional studies show that businesses that rely on manual processes for day-to-day operations are slower to react to market changes than those that employ automated solutions.

In today’s ultra-competitive marketplace, companies that implement technology-based solutions set the pace for the competition; they get to market faster, with more innovative solutions, at a lower cost than their non-automated competitors.

These organizations enjoy many benefits, including: 

  • Greater ability to bring new products and services to market
  • Improved operational controls and workflow management
  • Increased throughput capacity to support growth
  • Stable cost base with very low incremental costs as business grows
  • Positive impact on error rates
  • Real-time risk management reporting  
  • Powerful security access and audit functionality
  • Support for best practices procedures that adhere to compliance and regulatory policies
  • Automated integration with other internal and external systems
