5 Examples How AI Can Simplify Your Workflow

Tuesday, August 1, 2023 / Michael Kettenring

It is no secret that work overload can lead to exhaustion and employees resigning. As a result, HR departments are looking for new and effective ways to retain team members and help their team to reduce stress.

With Artificial Intelligence on the horizon to reshape job descriptions, we have researched how AI can actually help simplify the workflow and reduce workloads. Yes, AI can have a positive effect on our loves. Here are 5 examples:

1. Document Processing Automation:

This idea sounds a bit futuristic and expensive, yet it can be achieved. AI can automate the processing of documents, such as invoices, receipts, and forms. Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology combined with AI algorithms can extract relevant data from documents, populate databases or systems, and eliminate the need for manual data entry. This automation reduces processing time, minimizes errors, and increases productivity. Large organizations with deep pockets have the resources today to tackle this. We recommend to make a cost-benefit analysis before engaging in this project.

2. Email and Communication Management: 

Let's get closer to reality and talk about overflowing email inboxes! Microsoft and other email systems already offer plug-ins that assist in weeding out less important emails, creating priorities for the recipient. These AI-powered email management tools can automatically sort, prioritize, and categorize incoming emails based on predefined rules or machine learning algorithms. They identify and flag urgent or important messages, filter spam, suggest appropriate responses, and route emails to the relevant team members. It streamlines email communication and ensures timely responses.

3. Task and Project Management: 

The trend to remote teams has put a spotlight on how projects and tasks are being managed. In the past people simply used spreadsheets to document them. More progressive managers are utilizing project management software to track the progress of tasks. There are many tools available to chose from. Adding Artificial Intelligence methods to this mix may be overkill for most organizations. We nevertheless want to mention this new technology. 

AI tools automate task assignment, tracking, and scheduling in project management workflows. AI-powered systems can analyze project requirements, team availability, and individual skill sets to intelligently assign tasks and allocate resources. They can also monitor task progress, send reminders, and provide real-time updates to project stakeholders, improving collaboration and ensuring timely completion of projects.

4. Customer Support and Ticketing Systems:customer service 

Customer service has earned its reputation as a cost center, being inefficient and customer-unfriendly. What could be a better department to reorganize. So it is no surprise that "automating customer service" has become the focus of many AI applications. 

AI chatbots and virtual assistants can automate customer support processes by handling routine inquiries, providing instant responses, and escalating complex issues to human agents when necessary. These AI-powered systems can also create and manage support tickets, track customer interactions, and provide self-service options, reducing the workload on support teams and improving response times.

5. Data Analytics and Reporting: 

We have looked at data analysis and reporting from different angles in other posts. AI is all about data, a lot of data. One of its biggest strengths is its ability to automate the data analysis and reporting processes, saving time and improving accuracy. AI algorithms can collect, clean, and analyze data from various sources, identify trends, generate reports, and present insights in a visual and easily understandable format. This automation enables faster decision-making, reduces manual effort, and helps associations gain valuable insights from their data.

These examples highlight how AI can automate repetitive and time-consuming tasks, optimize workflows, and improve overall efficiency in various domains. There is no "one size fits all" when it gets to Artificial Intelligence. It's essential to carefully design and implement AI solutions to ensure they align with specific business requirements and integrate seamlessly into existing workflows.
