How no-code automations can help you with your work
Do you get tired of doing the same thing over and over again? With task automation you will be able to optimize your work, increase productivity and make better use of your time. In this article, we will tell you what no-code automations are and how they can help you.
What are the no-code automations
RPA (Robotics Process Automation) or robotic automation of processes consists of the use of software to intervene in the process of performing repetitive tasks and program them to be performed without human interaction. In this way, tasks that used to be performed by a person can be transferred to technological solutions, achieving a lower error rate and an improvement in working conditions since these employees could focus their time on more varied tasks of interest to them.
Much of the importance of automation lies in the role it plays within companies. Automation, then, becomes a fundamental link in the digitization of companies as it helps to create dynamic, modern and scalable work environments. Among its main advantages we find:
Time savings and efficiency, because repetitive tasks are automated.
Optimization, because human resources are used in a better way.
Improved customer management because the margin of error is reduced.
Better control of information and better monitoring of the tasks performed.
What is task automation for
Almost every area of a company has tasks that can be automated. The challenge lies in analyzing workflows and identifying which tasks are repetitive. These can be in the areas of finance, accounting, production, human resources and even marketing. Let's look at some examples:
Lead capture, implementing a system that gathers the captured data in a single database.
Recruitment, selection and maintenance of personnel.
Compilation and classification of accounting and financial reports.
Automation of price updates in online stores.
Order processing and shipment tracking.
Implementation of chatbots for better customer service.
And many more! These are just a few examples of all the possibilities offered by RPA.
No-code tools for automating tasks
Although many tools allow process automation, here are some of them:
Integromat: An online platform that allows you to connect and integrate the applications you use to transfer their data to each other without programming anything, but through a visual editor. It connects with any application that has an API entry such as Keep, Google Maps, Google Drive, Gmail, Google Analytics, Help Scout and others. It has several plans with prices but also a very useful free version.
Zapier: If we talk about no-code application integrators Zapier is the winner. This online tool allows you to integrate applications, with very few clicks and without code, to chain actions between them and thus achieve automated workflows. Its functionality is based on creating workflows (called Zaps) by adding functions to the queue so that they are executed when the user determines. It has a free version and several paid options.
NoCodeAPI: This tool allows you to create APIs of Google Analytics, Instagram, Medium, and Twitter among others and without code. Among its main advantages are the easy connection it offers, the security it provides to the data through encryption and the fact that the tool does not require server maintenance.
Mautic: It is a marketing automation tool that allows you to run complete campaigns in an automated way, from lead acquisition, and email marketing campaigns, to the creation of landing pages; being able to track all the activity of your customers through your website. It is open-source software that can be downloaded for free but also offers a paid service.
Parabola: A drag & drop automation tool that focuses on data-intensive workflows, allowing you to format, combine and move data between different applications. These flows can be about e-commerce, sales or marketing, among others. Parabola helps us eliminate repetitive copying and pasting of a spreadsheet by the simple process of setting a "source" (where your data set lives at the moment), a "transformation" (the action you want to trigger, e.g. sort, filter, sum) and a "destination" (where your data will end up).
There are many possibilities to implement automations in companies, which undoubtedly bring a lot of value to the work environment both directly and indirectly in people. From Fluo, a no-code agency in Argentina, we can help you implement robotic automation of processes in the sectors that need your work and we will do it without code, making it faster and more accessible.
