Automate Your Business Processes…
When I talk to office administrators I am constantly amazed at the amount of time they spend on highly repetitive tasks. These tasks are often repeated many times a day, with others done weekly and then there is the regular routine we all know as “End of Month” or end of quarter.
Often these routines call for financial or processes analysis to enable managers to see how the business is doing- a very important part of running your business. These typically involve collecting or exporting data from a financial system. Then the repetition starts:
2/. Open Excel and import the data (-Can’t find it! Where did I save it to?)
3/. Export the data again noting where I saved it!
4/. Open excel and import the data. (Yay, I found it this time)
5/. Check the data – (Oops! I only exported the revenue and forgot the expenses!)
6/. Delete the Spreadsheet and re-export the Correct Data. (grrrr…)
7/. Open Excel and import the data. (Phew got it that time!)
Then the actual analysis starts. This frequently involves many steps with sorting, deleting, cutting, pasting, etc. Each of these must be done correctly and in the right order for an accurate result. –Inevitably the phone will ring with an urgent matter about half way through, so the call is dealt with…
…and back to the analysis… Was I up to step 12 or step 15? Bother! –Delete it all and start over!!!
