Robots in salesWe may not as a society feel quite ready for robot salespeople, but whether we’re prepared or not, robots are already in the sales world. They might not be reaching out their shiny, robotic hands and leading us to the product we’re looking for, or telling us in charmingly robotic monotone about in-store promotions, but they are transforming the way organizations around the world run their sales processes.

The Greek myth of Sisyphus tells the story of a man doomed to continually roll a boulder up a steep hill. Each time he nears the top of the hill, however, the boulder tumbles back down, leaving Sisyphus laboring in vain for all eternity.

With the speed of business moving so quickly that it feels almost impossible to keep up, and with markets being more demanding than ever, businesses might find themselves feeling a bit like Sisyphus, fighting an uphill battle.

Faster, faster, do it faster: that's the mantra of today's fast-paced business climate. Office automation can certainly help to speed things up. Yet in itself it doesn’t answer the question of what should be accelerated or how. Contrary to what you might expect, squeezing more and more activities into smaller and smaller timeslots doesn’t always yield gains in productivity. Like with money and financial investments, a little reflection on where you put your automation can help sort out the projects with good returns from those with poor or even negative ones. Automation Anywhere has both tools and information to help users do that.

There’s the old adage that “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”Perhaps processes in your business aren’t “broken,” but they could potentially benefit from some analysis to determine if they can run more efficiently, faster, and more cost effectively—particularly as repetitive choke points are revealed.

There’s an enormous difference between doing something and making something a way of life. 

Take fitness for example. Exercising 2-3 times a week makes a difference, perhaps  in terms of maintaining a level of energy, boosting mood, and giving you just enough to claim you’re keeping up with your New Year’s resolution of “exercise more.” But when it comes to being a transformative practice that actually produces tangible benefits, experts agree that fitness needs to be a way of life. For those people who work out 30 minutes every day and are reaping the benefits of weight loss, metabolic increases, and improved cardiovascular health, exercise is more than something they “do;” it’s ingrained. Fitness is a habit. Fitness has become a discipline.
