Where do you want to be 3 months from now? Digital Automation. – the way to go. Part 1.
Many businesses take up digital automation technology to grow revenue, reduce operational costs, increase efficiency and improve customer experience.
Digital innovation can deliver significant benefits by helping you solve problems, generate profit, increase your market share and edge out competitors.
How you approach digital automation will depend on your business. It can be an improvement to your existing product or service, a complete change of direction or an expansion to your business.
Doing something new, untested or unproven may seem risky. Still, a reluctance or inability to improve your products or services may leave your business unable to compete, diversify or operate.
Not changing might be the more significant risk of all for a business.
Embarking on digital innovation enables problem-solving and provides creative insight that allows you to look at things from a different perspective. This could be developing a new product, refreshing strategy or finding an original way to stay ahead of the competition.
For the most significant benefits, businesses should look at putting a carefully selected range of smart technologies into their processes and products.
In simple terms, digital automation technologies enable you to get the information you need to make the best decisions for your business. This allows you to optimise your processes and deliver more products and services in less time and with fewer resources.
Regardless of the size of your business or sector, you can apply digital automation principles and the associated digital technologies across many areas of your business.
You can at least become paperless. Use technology to digitise your business documents, like online order forms and using collaborative product design specifications.
You will save time and money and reduce the likelihood of outdated or incorrect information.
Using the Internet of Things (IoT) technologies, such as sensors and weighing devices to track and locate your assets and resources, is a tremendous time-saving innovation.
For example, you can use IoT systems to monitor the structural health of all types of articles, from production equipment to entire buildings.
Embedded sensors in factory machines can be used to collect data on the conditions and safety of the devices. Advanced scientific tools can then process and analyse this data in real-time to identify and correct problems and optimise asset utilisation.
The best production and maintenance scenarios will contribute to the business profit margins.
