5 Things to Know about Government Process Automation

What are the most important things about government process automation? Why should a government agency automate its processes? To get up-to-date answers, SimpliGov has been surveying government employees and users of cloud-based automation for government processes with online forms. Providing insights for better decision-making, the following are 5 things to know about government process automation: 


[1] Efficiency gains and cost savings for government are significant when you implement a process automation solution.  We’ve seen government customers reduce costs by 80% or more and speed up workflows by 10x, 20x and higher. The possibilities that next-generation, cloud-based automation technology have opened up for government are better than ever. 


[2] Government automation does not require a department to rip and replace legacy and outdated systems, yet it gives the benefit of providing better visibility across the government. Furthermore, a new wave of automation solutions is establishing unifying capabilities, such as process automation and integrated electronic signatures (i.e. SimpliGov + SimpliSign). 


[3] It is easier to transition to process automation than one might think. By moving forms into the cloud with high security and tight compliance, you gain access to all of the easy-to-use tools that simplify the migration to a digital government automation platform. 


[4] Government process automation is subscription-based, so it does not hit your capital budget; it’s an operating cost that gets spread out over time on a monthly basis. This makes the adoption of automation capabilities much more budget-friendly and easier to obtain internal approval within government.   


[5] Last but not least, you and your team do not need to do any coding to transition to government process automation. A cloud-based platform (such as SimpliGov) eliminates the need for you to do any coding. A government agency can even have non-IT personnel within government take the lead on creating their own web forms, significantly increasing citizen engagement and accelerating delivery of services to constituents.
