As technology evolves, more and more organizations switch to smart tools that streamline operations, enhance productivity and digitize their business processes. At Ascendro, we acknowledge the importance of such tools, that we, as software developers, also take full advantage of. This is why we decided to help companies of any size achieve their full potential through custom software solutions aimed at workflow automation, specifically the digitization and optimization of any internal process.

But more on that later; let’s track back for a moment and talk about how small businesses could take advantage of workflow optimizations.

Why does workflow automation matter for small businesses?

From our experience, organizations seek to automate workflows to increase efficiency, reduce errors, boost productivity and speed up processes. Here is why we think internal tools are an important asset for any department of any company, from finance, HR and marketing all the way to software development and operations:

  • Competing on equal ground: Small businesses often face resource constraints, making it challenging to compete with the operational scale of larger enterprises. Tools such as CV Generator, which allows companies to showcase the skills of their employees without revealing their identities or Skill Matrix, built to identify the right experts for different projects, act as the equalizer, as they optimize operations, reduce costs, and boost productivity.
  • Efficiency redefined: Imagine a world where repetitive tasks are handled seamlessly, allowing your team to focus on strategic initiatives. Our own example for this principle is PM Autotools designed to automate and optimize various data-related functions within our organization, from data aggregation to task processing.
  • Strategic growth: Beyond immediate gains, automating internal processes represents a strategic investment in the long-term growth of small businesses. This level of automation provides scalability, adaptability, and the ability to respond swiftly to market changes, by swapping technologies or informing colleagues in real-time of any important change.

What key things should you consider when teaming up with a company that focuses on building internal tools?

When embarking on the journey of finding a partner for the development of your internal tools, it’s crucial to consider certain factors that contribute to a successful collaboration. Here’s what you should look for in such a partner:

  • Proven experience: Seek a partner with a track record of experience in crafting internal tools. Look for a company that has successfully developed and implemented solutions, demonstrating a deep understanding of internal challenges.
  • Tailored solutions and flexibility: The ability to adapt and customize tools according to your specific requirements is essential for maximizing the efficiency of your workflows.
  • Efficient project delivery: Time is of the essence when it comes to internal management. Choose a partner with a proven track record of delivering solutions promptly. Assess their capabilities to ensure that they can provide efficient project timelines without compromising on quality.
  • Cost-effectiveness: Look for transparent pricing models and a commitment to providing value for your investment. Ensure that they can work within your financial constraints without sacrificing the quality of the final product.
