What is Process Automation?
– A Definition

Process automation is the process of automating work and tasks. In concrete terms, this means transforming manually executed processes / services into digital / automated processes – workflows. The purpose of process automation is to save costs and time for manual administration and execution of processes. Another goal is an automatic, error-free handling of routine processes at a very high speed. On the one hand, process automation maintains competitiveness. But automation can also overcome problems that medium-sized companies in particular face – especially a shortage of skilled workers.
