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.
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.
So, you’ve decided to implement a robotic process automation (RPA) solution but are wondering what the pay-out will be for your organization. It’s a question we hear all the time – how much ROI can I expect to see in the first six months? In the first year? In the first 18 months? 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.
When it comes to launching a process automation strategy, the first step is often the hardest one to take. Today’s customers are moving faster than ever before. They expect faster responses, want to make faster decisions, and want products at their doorsteps or implemented into their organizations faster than ever before. Because of this, it’s imperative that companies embrace automation where they can.
Your accounting and finance department is probably used to the daily grind of collecting, processing and filing invoices and other financial documents. And we have serious respect for all that accounting and finance employees do on a daily basis. Because of that, we are constantly looking for ways to help you do your job more efficiently and accurately.
“What’s the problem?” is often part of every day conversations. At the doctor, in your manager’s office, when your kids come to you crying. We ask (or get asked) “What’s the problem?” so that a solution can be discovered.
Having a company with great culture and employee morale is important. It’s often why organizations host pot lucks, holiday parties, outings and other various team-building activities. But did you know that you can also increase employee morale by upping your technology game?
We love robotic process automation (RPA), and our customers have seen some serious success and ROI after implementing RPA technology. However, we also recognize that there are many RPA implementation projects that fail, or that don’t generate the expected ROI or efficiency gains. This does not mean that the technology is bad or that the vendor did not implement correctly. In fact, a failed RPA project can occur for a variety of reasons.
