How do you determine where to begin? Baker Tilly can guide you through the process to figure out what your goals are, how you can achieve those through automation, determining the right technology for your situation, and how to change your organization’s processes to be successful.
Baker Tilly understands that in order to drive effective process automation, the value must be perceived from our client’s perspective, not ours. We can work with you to develop a strategic roadmap for automation that focuses on the following goals:
Deploying the right solution for each identified opportunity
The hard truth is that an automation strategy does not always involve one approach. To provide maximum value with the highest return on investment, we will look at the following solution sets:
Developing options that have a clear return on investment based on our client’s goals and objectives
This return on investment will have a four point focus:
Our professionals will conduct three core activities to determine your organization’s needs for automation. This process will incorporate estimated returns for each option, but based off your individual organizations goals for your automation projects – not a prescribed set of goals.
High value options come out of the intersection of these three activities:
Interviews of management and staff personnel
Observe several administrative activities
Leverage data analysis and subject matter expertise
We will take all the identified automation opportunities and evaluate cost take out, revenue improvement and soft benefits. This will allow us to develop a valuation matrix and prioritize each option based on value to the organization. Reviewing this matrix can help your organization in determining where to start with your automation projects, and is critical to developing an effective and practical roadmap for successful deployment.
Once your priority projects are identified, we will determine the technology options that drive the highest return associated with each opportunity. Solutions may include:
Simple, low grade automation
High complexity automation
Core technology automation
Once the automation strategic roadmap is completed and agreed to, the effort pivots to achieving your identified benefits in a timely manner.
Baker Tilly has the expertise to assist with the oversight and management of the implementation effort, as well as development and delivery of any required staff training. We can provide monitoring of results to document the level of actual return on investment achieved and help you in understanding your results.
We are your partner through the entire process and are invested in helping our clients obtain significant value enhancement.
