The impact of technology across the workforce is truly remarkable. Further, automation has changed how we work and the definition of work. And, a necessary part of this definition is the automation journey goals. These goals will involve people establishing the guidelines, what needs automated, what still needs human intervention, and what’s too complex to automate.
All of this sets the stage for purposeful intent by the areas of technology, finance, operations, and lines of business collaborating to streamline the processes.
00:43: Aaron Tran explains the purpose of Workflow86, how they came up with the name and the purpose of its solution.
05:07: The genesis of Workflow86 was to automate workflows for risk assessment, risk analysis, and cybersecurity. There were significant issues using Zapier and Intgromat due to complexities in the business logic.
11:02: Many large organizations still have archaic systems and spreadsheets. Additionally, a lot of teams know what they need to automate, but have run into multiple barriers. A disconnect exists between the operational expertise and trying to scale the processes.
14:54: One customer of Workflow86 needed to generate hundreds of custom contracts. The workflow put in place enables them to create the contracts as part of its funding of organizations.
18:52: Many times the issue when trying to streamline a process is due to tribal knowledge. The finance department, for example, knows the steps, knows the process from beginning to end, but isn’t sure how to automate it.
22:04: The most popular approach is leveraging components to keep people involved. This approach is termed “human in the loop”. If the CFO, for example, needs to make a decision, they can approve or reject something which will trigger the next step.
26:21: Workflow86 partnered with CyRise to fill the gap between cybersecurity experts and the resources and tools. This helps thousands of small and medium-sized businesses that have no cybersecurity tools.
31:50: There has never been a better time to start automating than now. Using a low code tool to get you out of using spreadsheets, or if don’t know how to code, can help jumpstart your automation journey.
Workflow86 is an all-in-one no-code workflow automation platform. Other solutions allow users to automate workflows by connecting different external apps together. This approach works great for certain types of workflows, but it makes the entire workflow reliant on external dependencies. This introduces technical limitations, transactional inefficiencies, and reliability issues.
