Business Process Automation (BPA)
Business Process Automation (BPA) is the design and development of systems to help your business run more efficiently, increasing margins, reducing unnecessary costs while delivering a consistent product or service. We aren’t just the folks who build a business system for you, we are the folks who build a business system with you. Here are a few powerful benefits a custom PHP developed system will deliver driving Business Process Automation:
Business Process Automation Reduces Manpower :
Business process automation reduces the overall needs for manpower. Quality BPAs develop over time. These systems get smarter as they are continuously refined to work better and better. As the system become more efficient, less manpower is needed to perform all of the work. This automation process reduces the overall need to have everything administered by people. Much like an assembly-line at a car factory, custom PHP web development can serve as the robots of the business development process.
Reduced Costs & Time Savings with Business Process Automation Systems :
Once a Business Process has been automated and the kinks have been worked out, production costs are almost always reduced and time is saved. The biggest contributor to the time savings factor is streamlined communication. An automated workflow allows your team to rally around the core business tasks at hand. Custom PHP web development will allow a business owner to tweak the systems that make all of the processes work. Thus an organization is able to continuously refine its productivity, saving more money and saving more time.
Once an online process has been implemented, consistency will increase as well. Automatic triggers will enable your business to follow specific timetables to get things done. Increasing quality and consistency will allow you to drive more sales volume with little or no increase in production time and costs. Additionally, consistent customer interaction will drive more brand awareness and ultimately build a better brand experience.

Simply put, a quality BPA will reduce the time it takes to achieve a specific task. Of course it will then also reduce the costs associated with that task. Imagine building a web based system for your business that automatically launches tasks for certain people based on specific triggers. For example, when a customer is added into your CRM, you want that customer to receive a personalized welcome card. Thus a trigger could be programmed that would alert a specific member of the team to send such a card immediately. The beauty of building such a system is that it continuously becomes smarter and smarter making your business more and more efficient.
Shorter Turnaround Times
Workflow automation is crucial for any business that has to develop (or produce) a product in order to be paid. As order for specific products (or services) roll in, the faster these products or services can be provided, the faster the business is paid. Thus fast turn-around times are essential components to any businesses success. A quality application will assure specific tasks are done in a specific amount of time, thus assuring a product or service is delivered in the fastest way possible.
That custom application is not going to call in sick. It will always be there when you need it. Not only can a custom php framework be setup to be extremely robust, it can also deliver extreme consistency for all aspects of a business’s operations. When you deliver reliable services because your entire operation is built on a reliable online system you increase your brand reputation and ultimately sales.
Business Performance Metrics
As a business grows, it gets harder and harder to manage all aspects of the operation. Eventually you’ll have to delegate certain tasks. Having a system in place that provides up-to-the-minute information about the status of your operations is key to your success. You need a system that feeds you all of the key information to help you make split-second decisions about customers, jobs, staff ,etc. Metrics need to be in place to provide you with accurate measurements for all of your busi9ness operations. The beauty of any custom designed system allows the system owner to program any type of report he/she wishes to receive. As all of the data is at a programmer’s fingertips, he/she will merely have to create a custom report to provide whatever metrics a business owner is looking for.
There are many more factors that contribute to the power of a custom Business Process system, but the above listed items are the key factors we have run across in our years of developing these types of applications. For further information, feel free to contact us to discuss your specific needs.
