Top 5 HR processes our customers have automated

hr-process-automation.pngThe HR Department usually has broad reach within most organizations and often deals with a high volume of processes and policies. Yet many HR specialists still routinely manage requests through email, phone calls and paper forms. In fact, 40% of their time is spent on administrative work such as entering data from one systemto another.

JPMorgan Software Does in Seconds What Took Lawyers 360,000 Hours

legal-1.jpgI came across this article yesterday and was amazed by the numbers. JP Morgan Chase uses software to perform a routine task in seconds instead of 360,000 hours. Imagine the ROI on this automation?

“The push to automate mundane tasks and create new tools for bankers and clients — a growing part of the firm’s $9.6 billion technology budget — is a core theme as the company hosts its annual investor day on Tuesday.”

Not everyone is as big as JP Morgan Chase. Automating your routine day-to-day tasks isn’t likely to save you that much but investing in technology, especially to automate routine tasks is an absolute must in today’s world. It’s amazing how much this waste actually costs you. Automation brings huge benefits and return on investment.

If your people are wasting their time on routine stuff like moving information from Point A to Point B, your company should be investing in automation. As we’ve said many times: is it better for your employees to focus on customers or chasing down an approval for that purchase order? Should teachers and faculty focus on students or on getting signatures for that conference travel authorization?

“People always talk about this stuff as displacement. I talk about it as freeing people to work on higher-value things, which is why it’s such a terrific opportunity for the firm.”

Like JP Morgan, which spends 9% of revenue on technology (double the industry average), you can’t sit around and wait to know what the endgame looks like. The environment is simply moving too fast.

Safety Technologies Inc. uses frevvo instead of InfoPath for approvals

Safety Technology Holdings, Inc. (STH) is a global leader in the design and manufacturing of critical safety related test and measurement systems.

STH was using a mix of InfoPath forms, custom-built applications or e-mailing paper/PDF documents around for approvals. They decided to standardize on a single product to automate their approval workflows starting with HR and I.T. and then branching out to other departments.

“We are truly happy with frevvo Live Forms. Our primary considerations were adoptability, simplicity and integration.

frevvo forms look good and they’re very user friendly. They also integrate with our existing business systems. Our users have to enter less data, make fewer errors and don’t have to chase down approvals by email.

Live Forms is the best web-based forms & workflow solution on the market today to address our needs.”

– Michael Ruggirello, MIS/IT Systems Administrator

frevvo Live Forms works with their existing Microsoft infrastructure and ERP system. The forms and workflows are extremely dynamic, eliminate typos and errors and dramatically improve efficiency. Live Forms provides end users with a fantastic user experience on all devices yet is powerful enough to meet their unique business needs.

ROI in less than 3 months

roi-1Sometimes, we get asked in the sales process about the ROI (Return on Investment) of buying and implementing a digitized frevvo workflow vs continuing with the current way of doing things. Typically, this means sending an Excel or PDF document around by email for approvals.

Emailing Excel and PDF documents for approvals is incredibly expensive.

The manual approach is fraught with problems:

  • How do you ensure that you have the latest version? Shared folder? Intranet?
  • How do you actually get the approvals? Via e-mail? Schedule a meeting? What happens if someone is on vacation or fails to respond in a timely manner? What if there’s an error? More e-mail?
  • What if a signature is required? Attachments? Does this mean printing, signing and scanning?
  • How do you keep track of and formally record who has approved the document? Save multiple e-mails? Meeting notes?
  • What will happen months from now when you need to find the signed and approved document?

An automated approval workflow from frevvo can quickly save you a lot of money. In most cases, you will start seeing ROI with frevvo in less than 3 months (even faster at higher volumes). Check out this ROI calculator for a Purchase Requisition or click on the image to see how frevvo can save you $$$.

As a bonus, you’ll have happier employees who can focus on customers and new business opportunities rather than chasing down paper. Interested? Contact us now to learn more.
