Many remote workers these days become routinely frustrated that they don’t have everything they need at their fingertips to do their jobs. For them, the days they could run down the hall to quickly talk to someone are long gone.
There is a better way! It centers around harnessing the power of Digital Transformation (DX).
To learn more about how DX can benefit organizations, I interviewed Michael Cantu of Accelerate. I wanted to discover how the use of workflow automation software, a major component of DX, can radically transform organizations and can also make remote working much more productive.

So, what is workflow automation software? Here’s a definition:
It connects disparate systems, people, data, content, and workloads to accelerate your workforce. It streamlines your work, enabling you to have at your fingertips what you need to do your job more effectively and efficiently.
There are too many benefits to list, so here are some highlights:
1. Increased Productivity
Some platforms, including Accelerate, connect siloed IT systems. With Accelerate, these systems can be integrated into the platform, so you only need to use one interface, negating the need for employees to log into multiple systems to do their work.
2. Improved Customer Experience
It allows businesses to quickly communicate with customers and provide immediate answers to their concerns and queries. Automated data entry saves time as well and offers consistent services while minimizing errors.
3. More Effective & Efficient Remote Working
Remote workers often spend too much effort going back and forth with email, and work can be disjointed. Everything you need with a tool like Accelerate can be at your fingertips in one system for better working-from-home scenarios.
4. Quicker Implementations & Increased Ability to Innovate
Lower costs and quicker implementations leave more time and money to launch more innovation projects with lessened lead times. Because Accelerate has a drag-and-drop user interface, simple processes can be automated in less than two hours!
Workflow automation platforms truly deliver outstanding results. Here are some real-life examples that Accelerate clients have achieved:
In the first two examples, layoffs weren’t necessary, despite the productivity increases. They are now able to take on more sales and grow their companies.
As you can see, workflow automation tools can improve remote working experiences, increase productivity, and reduce overhead and development costs.
And who wouldn’t want that for their organization?

Speaking about workflow automation, Michael Cantu and I are excited about our upcoming paperback launch of our book, No-Nonsense Digital Transformation. It was the #1 New Release in IT on Amazon (Kindle) in November, 2022!
In it, we talk extensively about workflow automation platforms. We also provide a step-by-step roadmap of how to successfully plan for and implement these platforms in companies.
