The struggle to keep up with rising costs and the complexity of managing a tribal community persists. Thankfully, technology has improved day-to-day operations for tribal governments and made it not only manageable, but highly effective and convenient to get things done and make work easier.
With workflow automation, you can improve your processes for staff and tribe members alike at less cost than you might think.
What is Workflow Automation?
Part of a bigger digital transformation strategy, workflow automation is defined as creating predefined processes to complete tasks automatically rather than manually. Automation brings visibility and structure to everyday tasks that may not currently have a solid order of operations. This means you’ll gain increased efficiency while also providing a better, more consistent experience for your community.
By using metadata, or information related to a document for additional identifiers around it, search retrieval and organization gets a lot easier. You can use tags, links, or updated versions to help you track down what’s needed quicker than ever.
According to the Harvard Business Review, 51% of executives say their primary goal for AI is to enhance the features, functions, and performance of their products. The purpose of automation and why so many businesses are adopting it stem directly from the benefits and adaptability that stack atop their existing processes.
What are the Benefits of Workflow Automation?
Significantly reducing or eliminating paper use, automated tasks are all housed digitally and easily accessible for anyone you desire needing to access. The savings from printed documents, making paper copies, and other traditional office supplies make automation well worth pursuing. It’s also worth mentioning time saved over the course of weeks, months, and years adds considerable savings to your tribal government’s bottom line.
Research indicates 80% of business and tech leaders say AI boosts productivity and creates jobs according to Business Wire. Establishing predefined steps for electronic document retrieval and incident reports free up time for your staff to help other tribal members on a more human level.
Increase Community Satisfaction
As the saying goes, it takes a village to bring everyone together – and tech certainly doesn’t alter this concept in the slightest. The ability to adapt and let technology take the high-volume, rules-based tasks from your staff gives more opportunity to see big picture items and make improvements to the tribe’s operations as a whole. While this results in concrete benefits like saved time and money, it’s important not to discount the soft benefits such as job fulfillment and happiness across the tribe.
