Digital Process Automation in sales and marketing

Expertise in Sales Cloud integration and pipeline management automation for sales enablement.

Introduction

Until recently, process automation was one a top-level concepts beyond of the reach of most companies. With technology evolution and digital transformation, it has become a reality for most enterprises.

Digital process automation

The definition of what is digital process automation is simple. Business processes consist of business rules, data, and human decisions. If digital technology lets you automate those business rules, then you have a first process automation. In other words, digital process automation, use software to automate tasks that could be run by a human.

Beyond the obvious benefits, social, and cultural impact organizations that adopts it, digital process automation reforms the business processes.

Consider the simple example of a call center.

Sales people answered phones, took orders, and then posted them to their corresponding application for processing. The next step in process automation was phone menu systems that would guide call center representatives to more detailed order specifications or electronic submissions forms; or a website if the company’s website served as the customer gateway. Today, chatbots, or natural language processing bots, replaced people to become the most, common customer gateway, providing an automated salesman to the end customer.

Today, digital process automation covers almost all business functions

  • Composite applications that run cross functional business processes with properly integrated applications
  • Natural language processing bots or chatbots provide first level support in help desks -like iPhone Siri- or recommendation engines that customize content delivered, empowering customer experience -as in youtube.com or netflix.com-
  • - Intelligent decision-making processes that substitute human decision tasks or just simple processes that automate business rules

Application in Sales and Marketing

Sales and Marketing functions have always been pioneers in adopting new trends and technologies. The same holds true with digital process automation. For example;

  • - Customer support processes are almost fully automated. These systems generate tickets automatically, send notifications automatically, and provide resolutions automatically in most cases.
  • Inter-partner transactions in B2B environments are automatically executed in a B2BEDI implementation
  • Financial checks and validations held automatically through validation models or composite integrated applications checks
  • Payments can also be processed automatically
  • Using predictive prospecting analysis, where techniques from data discovery, predictive models, statistics, artificial intelligence analyze customer data to make predictions about future customer behavior, lead customers more efficiently by providing tools and analytical information for marketing models and campaigns
