Would you like to increase your revenue, reduce your costs and improve your customer satisfaction? If the answer is yes, then you need to know the duo that is revolutionizing the business world: Automation and RevOps.
RevOps stands out for its holistic approach to business growth. Instead of having isolated departments working independently, the RevOps approach seeks to integrate sales, marketing and customer success teams, creating a well-oiled and coordinated machine. This synergy ensures a shared vision and customer-centric approach, resulting in a seamless and consistent experience for customers.
It is in this search for synergy and efficiency that automation plays a crucial role. Automation allows you to optimize operational processes and reduce the manual burden on teams, allowing them to focus on strategic and high-value tasks. From automating marketing campaigns to managing workflows in the sales department, technology has allowed us to unleash human potential and increase productivity.
For many companies, the main reason for investing in automation is precisely for Revenue Management.
Automation can increase the effectiveness of many functions that involve the RevOps team or teams. While automation performs more repetitive tasks, the team can develop other more human or creative skills that can be the great differentiator between a business and its competition.
It also improves the ability to achieve critical objectives for the company such as increasing sales velocity. Although for this the RevOps context and framework must be correct and very strategic.
Companies that do not worry about learning or understanding how to get the most out of implementing automation will not be able to adequately optimize the processes that they could streamline.
The combination of Automation and RevOps is a winning strategy for any business, as it allows you to:
All this with the support of RevOps, which allows you to:
1. Use automation to optimize entire processes:
A misconception about automation is that it replaces people or individual tasks. The reality is that it is not like that. In fact, to use it this way is to completely limit its scope and affect the performance of your business, since the teams that make up the operational infrastructure of a company are symbiotic by nature: no function or person should operate without collaboration.
Changes made to a workflow, for example, affect all interested parties regardless of the nature of the change. This often forces all parties to make changes to the way they operate, often resulting in the well-known bottlenecks and information gaps.
So that this does not happen and the efficiency of the processes can be improved (such as closing sales, returning to the original example), all improvements must have a comprehensive scope. Avoid automating isolated or individual tasks or empowering individual employees with any tool. To increase efficiency, the scope must be comprehensive. And that is why the focus of automation must be directed at changing entire processes.
2. Be strategic when determining who will be in charge of implementing automation processes:
To fully understand how to get the most out of automation and how to comprehensively increase the efficiency of processes and flows, the person responsible for carrying out this implementation must also have a comprehensive understanding of the company's operational infrastructure and the departments.
This is where the operations teams and those in charge of revenue management come into play, as they are the ones who actively manage the interaction of the different teams and systems that drive business. They are the ones who have the information about which processes can benefit from automation.
3. Don't forget human beings
Quality data is said to be critical for the effective utilization of data platforms. And it couldn't be more true. It is also true that data and people are essential to the effective use of automation tools and technologies. Automation, as we have mentioned, should be considered as a means to optimize processes as a whole by improving subprocesses, systems and people in a comprehensive manner.
Think that automation is a tool for your collaborators to exercise their strategic vision. It should not be done by removing people from the equation.
Additionally, the presence of people allows adjustments to be made to the process if necessary or guide certain steps toward completion. The idea is that the process is never interrupted, and people are the only ones who can mitigate these risks and make crucial decisions when necessary.
4. Integrate and continually improve
An important piece of automation is integration: this allows everyone to have access to the same information, to understand it in the same way and, therefore, to reach more valuable conclusions for the growth of any business. Best of all, if the right tools are chosen (that adapt to the type of company, its size, number of collaborators, objectives, clients, etc.) the transition is simple and scalable over time. It's a matter of taking the first step.
RevOps and automation are a perfect pair in the pursuit of business success. By integrating teams, eliminating manual tasks and optimizing operational processes, organizations can unleash human potential and focus on activities of greater strategic value. With RevOps as their guide and automation as their ally, companies are prepared to dazzle the business world with their harmonious dance towards sustainable success.
Can you imagine being able to create web or mobile applications without needing to know how to program? Would you like to speed up software development and reduce costs and errors? Are you interested in taking advantage of the opportunities that digital transformation offers for your business or project?
Revenue Operations (RevOps) is a methodology that seeks to integrate and align the areas of marketing, sales and customer service to improve the customer experience and maximize revenue. The goal of RevOps is to make growth and profitability more predictable and sustainable.
