In these turbulent times it is even more important to focus on the right projects and initiatives. Too often an automation is implemented without really knowing why, or what the expected benefit will be. Or worse, no improvement is made even though there may be hundreds of potential projects identified (analysis paralysis). In this brief overview and live demonstration, we will proudly introduce a new platform and approach: Automation Compass. Easily identify potential opportunities from process maps and documentation, quantify those opportunities using simulation and analysis, prioritize them in an intuitive automation pipeline, and measure the actual results to make sure we are getting the returns we expected. With this set of capabilities organizations can confidently map out a realistic path and immediately realize the benefits of business automation while mapping out a strategic path to larger business transformation.
