Where are you going? How are you going to get there?
Two simple questions, the answers to which determine the future of your business.
As the structure of business changes, you must get more from your investments. Changes that don’t deliver real-world value are dangerous distractions. The shift of operations to the cloud can deliver substantial value, if done properly. If you just move lousy practices and processes to the cloud, all you’ll get is a lousy cloud.
Redwood’s RunMyJobs® scheduling lets you leave the past behind with industry-leading automation that’s designed to get the most out of the cloud.
The cloud promises scalability, agility, good governance and control. The cloud promises to cut across silos and give you the big picture across the whole business. The cloud promises to free and integrate islands of resources spread across your business. The cloud promises a lot. Redwood gives you the ability to deliver on that promise.
To truly leverage the cloud, disparate systems must work together effectively. Unfortunately, legacy schedulers often can’t do much to make that happen. Most only trigger simple pre-programmed operations through basic logic. Automation with Redwood handles complex processes across multiple platforms and directly connects your systems with APIs. Exceptions don’t trip up our automation, either. You can set things up to deal with contingencies on their own.
Change can be difficult and uncertain but do it right and you’ll get maximum value from the cloud. You’ll be able to improve on how you do things today and do things you couldn’t do before:
- Scale up or down faster and easier
- Integrate efficiently with your ERP
- Keep better records, from enterprise-wide audit and governance to automated version control
- Use dashboards to quickly update analytics with the most timely data
The biggest and best change that Redwood automation brings is freedom for your people. With automation, your staff don’t waste time on manual handovers from one department to another. They don’t have to manually monitor report generation or constantly check for errors. They don’t need to hand-enter data from one system into another.
Instead, they’re free to plan. They’re free to forecast. They’re free to do competitive analyses. They’re free to take you into the future.
Where are you going? The future.
How are you going to get there? Automation.
