Enterprise Automation: Modernize your organization for increased productivity and efficiency.
Enterprise automation can sound like a massive undertaking, and it certainly can be. However, many companies have taken the strategic approach of using biting off smaller, departmental (and even sub-departmental) automation projects while keeping their focus on the larger goal of a fully-automated enterprise. Many of these projects fall under the broader framework of "Digital Transformation."
So what to do we mean by "an automated enterprise?"
Enterprise automation is the systematic review of an organization's processes to ensure optimal performance while looking for manual processes that can be replaced with intelligent digital alternatives.
By automating an organization's processes, especially those processes that have traditionally been handled manually, significant improvements can be made in:
Streamline and speed up internal processes by reducing manual entry and request handling.
Identify performance trends and bottlenecks and take action to improve output.
Provide verifiable evidence that a sequence of tasks or activities have been performed as expected and address exceptions.
Eliminate boring, rote work so employees can focus on higher-value, more rewarding activity.
Reduce errors by eliminating manual data entry, adding checkpoints, and running compliance audits.
An automated enterprise doesn't send emails and Excel spreadsheets around, they build smart, automated workflow automation software to automate critical, everyday processes. You can review the examples below or download our Use Case Examples PDF.

Companies like Kissflow, Pipefy, Flokzu, etc. provide simple automation tools for small businesses while companies like Integrify, Appian, and Nintex provide more robust tools for mid-size and enterprise companies. In addition, some existing ERP vendors like SalesForce, Oracle, and Microsoft provide some form of add-on automation as part of their product. Needless to say, workflow automation is a large and fragmented market.
The difference between SMB and Enterprise automation software is in the feature set, interoperability, scalability, and service/implementation component. The difference between an add-on to an existing enterprise suite and Integrify is that we are focused entirely on workflow automation for the enterprise, not ERP, CRM, Accounting, etc. We provide a best-of-breed workflow automation platform that connects to these other tools and makes them better while providing our customers with all the features, stability, and scalability needed for enterprise workflow automation.
Workflow automation and robotic process automation (RPA) are separate but compatible technologies. Workflow automation tools like Integrify allow your enterprise to automate a series of tasks that are performed by individuals or machines whereas, RPA digs deeper into a specific type of task performed as part of a workflow. These tasks could be taking data out of one system or document and entering into another system or monitoring an inbox for specific keywords. Read more on how workflow automation and RPA work together.
We have a variety of resources to help you on your journey to an automated workflow.
