Are your business processes fit for purpose?

Tony Baulch, Ashdown Solutions – Managed IT

Is your business full of monkeys? We don’t mean the animals, rather are you getting your team to complete the same processes and tasks over and over again? If you are, that means you’ll likely be gradually demoralising and demotivating your team over time, as well as preventing your business from accessing the opportunity to use it’s people to progress, differentiate and develop your business (and themselves!). This is where business automation fits in.

In this presentation, Tony will introduce you to different automating process technology and how it can work to add value in different business contexts.

Tony has a wealth of IT experience, starting out at British Caledonian, before working for BT and then supporting projects such as the Dartford River Crossing  and Faslane submarine shiplift. He spent 12 years in a senior role supporting retail operations of some 400 Texaco petrol stations.

With a young family, and not wanting to travel into London, he started Ashdown Solutions to look to bring his years of automation and project management skills to serve SME’s based in the Gatwick Diamond.
