Automation software is software that automates a process that a human employee previously did. The purpose of automation software is to replace repeatable processes and remove human intervention to drive efficiency.
Let's use a real-world example. Sally is the owner of a recruiting business that employs two people, Jill and Beth. Her company is one of many used by two more prominent firms to recruit their employees. The market is highly competitive, and the only way Sally can compete with her larger competitors is by providing her customers with a weekly report listing potential candidates, their skills, and current salaries. Jill and Beth's responsibility is to extract potential candidates from their current database into Microsoft Excel, remove any sensitive information, add the client's branding, save the report as a PDF, and email it to the applicable people. Following extensive research, Sally determines that creating a single report can take up to two hours. The business also runs the risk of exposing sensitive personal information. In addition, the onboarding process for new employees is affected because of the time needed to train a new person on the steps necessary to create these reports. So Sally decided to hire a freelance automation software developer to automate the process so that Jill and Beth could focus on obtaining and screening new candidates. The resulting software automatically pulls a list of potential candidates, removes any sensitive information, handles the PDF creation, and emails the reports on a set schedule. By making a one-off investment, Sally mitigated risk and lowered the long-term operational costs of her business while still maintaining her competitive advantage.
