Times of uncertainty call for reliable technology. You have likely deployed a “work anywhere” workforce and have employees working from their home offices, living rooms, kitchen tables or backyards. During this time we at Metafile, along with many other technology providers, are touting the benefits of cloud technology. And for good reason! For organizations that typically operate within an office environment, cloud technology may not have been a priority. However, times have changed and, whether deploying a remote workforce is a temporary or permanent transition, it’s important to understand the advantages of technology, especially automation technology, hosted in the cloud.

Today’s workforce is becoming a remote one. More and more companies are transitioning their employees to remote workers, allowing them to save money on office space and equipment, as well as expand their hiring to a wider group of prospects.
Is your accounts payable department “next level?” When you consider your AP department, would you call it “innovative,” “agile” or “best-in-class?” Today’s top AP departments are embracing technology, streamlining processes and automating manual tasks. As automation becomes more commonplace, more AP departments are adopting it and reaping the benefits of it.
Technology is getting smarter and smarter, which is making companies more efficient, agile and competitive. We have artificial intelligence, machine learning, robotic process automation and more tech-savvy buzzwords that are digitizing workplaces and automating tasks that we never dreamed could be automated. Most automation efforts start with accounts payable, as this department has historically processed the most paper and typically has the most manual procedures.
Sometimes we don’t realize that what we’ve been doing isn’t ideal until we take a good, hard look at it. In this case, we’re talking about information management. Many companies have spent years managing their data in certain ways, even if it’s inefficient and cumbersome. Why? Because it’s comfortable and familiar. However, in this day and age of information technology and innovation, comfortable and familiar doesn’t cut it.
You and your team have experienced a whole list of benefits since implementing document management/robotic process automation (RPA) software at your organization. But your accounts payable, accounts receivable, human resources and leadership teams likely aren’t the only ones enjoying the perks of paperless automation – your customers are benefitting, too!

Digital transformation strategies are innovative, exciting and comprised of many moving parts. Some enterprises totally nail it, planning, implementing and monitoring new digital technology.

So, you’ve decided to implement a robotic process automation (RPA) solution but are wondering what the pay-out will be for your organization.

And we get it, making sure that your company is seeing a return on your tech investment is essential, especially if you’re considering scaling that investment and implementing it into other areas of your company for a full-scale digital transformation in the future.
