What is Business Automation?
Business automation is a means to seamlessly incorporate policies and procedures into the company’s system environment and your staff’s daily activities. Automation eliminates routine decisions, redundant tasks, and maximizes your employees’ efforts for decisions best suited to their expertise.

Business process automation guarantees your procedures are effectively implemented within the organization, prevents exposure to non-compliance issues or mishandling of your business information, which can negatively impact your revenue. Workflow automates the routing of all types of business documents and information to eliminate time-consuming, cumbersome, and error-prone tasks. Significant time is saved each day by task automation, and the impact on your staff is minimized when policies and procedures change. Protect your staff and your company’s assets from overlooked critical steps in your processes and achieve:

The term “workflow” is defined in different ways. Products vary greatly, and are often nothing more than approval routing processes. When a workflow solution is implemented, it may meet the needs of the company at that point in time, but the goal is process automation, and processes will certainly change, therefore, serious consideration should be the ease with which the solution can adapt to future needs. Some workflow solutions fall short on supporting true “Business Automation” and limit your ability to fully implement your vision and achieve your goals. Ascend’s Advanced WorkFlow software solution is a robust solution that is highly adaptable to your needs, easy-to-use, and is managed through a graphical user-friendly facility.
