A look ahead into the years to come Happy New Year! I wish you all great success in 2015! Many people write and talk about year-end reviews or upcoming trends. Today, I’ll be taking on the latter for a little bit, but at a higher level. For much of 2014, you’ve seen us talk about how adopting automation really helps improve employee output and earn more money overall. But we never really touched on how the role of workers as a whole can be impacted. Well, today we will!

How a Single Bank Saved Hundreds of Thousands in Telecom Expenses

New Case Study Series Highlight Achievements of Business Automation for Expense Management Today, I’m taking a brief break from talking about BYOD and mobile phone issues to shift back to the topic of automation. As readers of this blog know, I’ve written a fair bit on business process automation (BPA), and its many benefits to businesses. In the past, I’ve mainly discussed BPA in a relatively abstract manner. In this installment, I’ll be speaking about this topic much more concretely since Cimpl will be highlighting one of our bigger success stories in automation in a series of case studies that we’re releasing!

Smartphones become Superphones – The Next Step in Workplace Evolution

Scientists have been trying to get robots to think and act and see like humans… For years now, researchers have been working to develop technology that can recognize objects and events in the same way that humans do. There are software and robots that navigate their own path across different terrains, map out sound sources, and which have actually been programmed to be curious. This research has been, by and large, pretty successful.

Single vendor vs. multi-vendor: 8 factors to consider

on June 4, 2014 12:00 PM By | Henry Cheang | 3 Comments | Telecom Expense Management Business Automation SaaS tem BPA Software
Time to ponder: Single vendor? Or multi-vendor? Over the past few months, we’ve published multiple posts on business process automation (BPA). I’m pretty sure that I’ve made the case for automating these processes cogent, and that you’re seriously looking up vendors by now. Which, of course, leads to one more challenge: How do you decide between engaging a single vendor or multiple vendors to automate all the myriad tasks that can benefit from technology adoption?

A Detailed Primer on Business Process Automation, Part 2

on April 23, 2014 3:30 PM By | Henry Cheang | 0 Comments | Business Automation implementation
*Please note that Etelesolv changed its company name to Cimpl in 2016. Last week, I posted Part 1 of my interview with Robert Al-Jaar, Vice-President of Product Engineering here at Etelesolv. He was gracious enough to share his knowledge on business process automation (BPA) – both in terms of concept and advantages. In this week’s post, Robert discusses the critical success factors that are implicated in properly implementing BPA. Note that the interview is mildly edited for length and flow, but not for content. And so, without further ado…  So, there seems to be many advantages to business process automation. But these things don’t exist in a vacuum, and they do require effort to carry out. What would you consider to be the critical success factors for proper BPA implementation? In my opinion, the most important critical success factor would be to have an executive sponsor who truly champions the initiative. You need an executive sponsor who will support the implementation team – the executive sponsor has to take charge of removing roadblocks (which can come from resource limitations or resistance from other personnel for example).

Drawing from the experience of a master Now, I’ve recently been writing a fair bit on the benefits of automation and the advantages of SaaS, but let’s face it – I will never know as much as Robert Al-Jaar, on these domains. And so, I was lucky enough to sit down with Robert and ask him a few questions on automation and its place with business practices. The following is the essence of our conversations (mildly edited for length and clarity):  Even before getting to the benefits of automating business processes, can you give me your breakdown of how they’re categorized in real-world business settings?

Business process automation is here. There are many conflicting views on the impact that automating business processes will have on organizations. To clarify, Business Process Automation is a process wherein data, information, and processes related to business are managed with technology as a means of driving down costs. Some claim that spending money on such automation yields poor returns on investment, or will outright create losses on the bottom line. Others believe automation can only be a boon.
