If only there were more hours in the day

If you ask any small to medium sized business owner their greatest challenge, the answer is often the same – there just aren’t enough hours in the day. Generating sales, managing staff and their safety, invoicing, payroll and purchasing all take time. On top of that you have compliance and regulatory requirements, including ensuring your insurance is up-to-date and implementing workplace health and safety measures. With Autofile Business Process Automation, SMB’s can automate these key business processes, so you can spend less time on repeatable tasks and more time growing your business.

Are you still unsure about how this technology could work for your business? Here are the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions:

What is Autofile Business Process Automation?

Autofile is a customised business service that automates key business workflows, including administrative, customer service or regulatory processes. Essentially the technology enables you to capture key business information from PDF’s, email attachments and digital forms and automatically send that information with pre-defined worksteps to key users and decision makers. The software also offers integration with all the major accounting software platforms, including MYOB, Reckon and Xero, enabling you to automatically process sales orders, payroll and creditor invoices.

What manual tasks can be automated?

How many forms does your business currently use? Do you have forms for timesheets, a form to fill out when a staff member has an accident or purchase order forms? As a rule, if your business has a form than there is a good chance you can convert these into digital webforms and automate the processing of those forms.

Here are some common workflows that our clients have automated with Autofile:

  • Sales order processing
  • Accounts payable automation
  • Payroll automation
  • Workplace health and safety (WHS) management
What are the benefits for SMB’s?

Automating your business workflows results in a raft of benefits, including efficiencies in digitally storing and accessing information, reduced data entry costs and the ability to automate workflows and tasks, based on pre-defined rules. Security and transparency is also improved, with business owners able to identify what information their staff members are accessing (and editing).

These benefits lead to improvements in business efficiency and productivity, saving you time and money. Business process automation also enables you to spend less time managing monotonous tasks and more time on work that matters.

Is my business too small for this technology?

Autofile Business Process Automation suits businesses of all sizes and across a range of industries. If your business relies on manual business processes, then Autofile Business Process Automation can dramatically improve your business productivity and profitability.
