Why Finance needs automation finance solutions for streamlining daily operations
Try to imagine an organization that has document workflows without computers and software. When the financial industry neglects the adoption of tools for the digitization of processes, a massive amount of time is wasted while manually entering data and correcting errors. As a result, employees have a lower satisfaction level and succumb to burnout. Outdated processes can put employees off.
When organizations lack financial process automation it leads to the following:
Scattered data. A new client is a new document, a few new spreadsheets, and even new folders. To organize all of these documents and spreadsheets takes a lot of manual work and attention. If you’re a good organizer, you can manage to keep everything in a single place, but just imagine the chaos for those who store files in different cloud storage systems or even different folders within the same cloud storage; a headache.
The human factor. The financial industry is a specific beast with unique processes. . Therefore, if a process is managed by a single person or a group of people, mistakes can be very costly. People create a bottleneck called “the human factor.” By introducing robotic process automation in Finance, you’ll be able to prevent a lot of mistakes from ever taking place.
Data leaks. Financial processes are subject to risks and vulnerabilities. Whether you trust your employees or not, there will always be room for mistakes that can cost you a lot; sometimes even your business. For example, an accountant forgets to close their laptop when issuing or signing invoices and someone sees an HR manager’s salary and it becomes the main topic to gossip about. Not to mention the deeper security risks associated with the same idea of leaded information.
What can automation in Finance change about the financial industry as a whole?
Finance automation can fundamentally change your approach to business management. With the right tools, you can pull the
data you want from different sources and push it to new documents. Plus, neither you nor any other employee will need to
search for and copy a single line of text. You get as many records as you want in clicks without human intervention.
More importantly, get accurate information. Robotic process automation in Finance does not make mistakes if the software’s settings are set up properly and employees input data correctly the first time.
Finance automation completely eliminates the human factor, giving you the ability to process most documents around the clock. When your intervention is required, you'll get a notification directing you on what to do and where to do it.
If you’re concerned about security, financial process automation will take care of that too. Nowadays software offers advanced protection measures such as two-factor authentication. Additionally, a good solution must meet various requirements according to local, federal, and international laws and regulations.
Learning the ropes when it comes to accounting automation software
All of the above sounds a bit like a fantasy, but you can rest assured that there’s such a solution. airSlate is an all-in-one, no-code platform that’s helping SMBs to SMEs revolutionize how they implement tax automation and accounting automation into their daily finance workflows.
airSlate does this via Bots, software robots, basically, micro-software that automates various functions and actions within a particular Flow (workflow). You don't need to code a single line or hire developers to implement Bots. They are based on simple if-this-then-that conditional logic. When setting up a workflow, you should choose the Bot you need and configure it.
There are hundreds of Bots, some for importing or exporting information, integrating with different systems of record, and even sending out notifications. In addition, you can also check the actions your Bots have taken with the Bots log.
There are many courses by the airSlate Academy for walking you through all of the nuances of airSlate as well as automation in the finance industry. Check out use cases and recreate their Flows in your own processes. After completing each course, you'll get a verified certificate that proves your knowledge.
