FLORHAM PARK, N.J., March 02, 2023 -- According to new research of more than 400 professionals more than 80% of respondents cited the benefits of intelligent automation. The survey found that workflow inefficiencies remain one of the biggest business challenges for enterprises. However, the research also shows that lack of internal capabilities and resources create barriers to implementing automation technologies.

Top findings from the cross-industry study conducted for Conduent Incorporated (Nasdaq: CNDT), a global technology-led business process solutions company, include:

“This research clearly shows there is a significant opportunity for companies to transform many of the manual processes embedded in their business through automation and working with experienced partners for implementations,” said Michelle Hernandez Vice President and General Manager at Conduent. “Research participants are very aware of the significant benefits from automation. The barriers they face can be overcome with the right solution, partner and planning to harness the benefits of technology.”

Survey respondents cited benefits of intelligent automation including:

“Most large organizations have gone through at least one wave of automation projects and now look for advanced automation expertise to resolve industry-specific and sub-process level challenges,” said Ivan Kotzev, Lead CX Analyst at NelsonHall . “In CX services, this requirement for domain expertise drives outsourcing partnerships to the next level towards shared outcomes and benefits.”

“For automation to impact business results, companies need to look beyond technology as the solution and start with the business process first. Finding a partner that has the experience in process transformation is critical to the success of the project,” said Hernandez.
