About You and Us
First About You
Many organizations are contemplating starting an automation initiative or have decided to restart their automation journey.
- But organizations do not know where to start
So, rather than just jumping in
- Organizations do nothing, or
- They make several false starts
Worse still, organizations start, deploy automation solutions only to discover they
- Selected the wrong processes and automation tools
- Did not have an effective communication channel
- Did not define their operating model
in advance for efficient delivery.
Much of the industry news around automation technology, such as Robotic Process Automation (RPA), is confusing and unclear.
- There are promises of large and fast ROI, but organizations are experiencing unmet promises
- Organizations have failed to identify and define the value that will result in a positive ROI
Too often, automation is focused on such things as
- The number of software robots deployed; This type of metric is the wrong focus.
- Reduction in labor hours is important, but there is much more offered from automating manual tasks that drive value-added benefits.
The founder, Charles Dents, founded Automation Strategy Consultants to help organizations
- Identify and get all possible benefits from automation
- Create clarity for their Automation (RPA & IA) initiative at scale (growth)
- Create organizational transparency for cost-benefit of automation
- Create clearly defined analytics for reporting positive ROI.

Automation Strategy That Scales
To be fair, the definition of scale can mean something different from company to company and from one person to the next.
We define SCALE with three pillars of growth.
- Delivery: Ability to meet organizational delivery demands
- Intelligence: Extending the capability of software robots with Artificial Intelligence enabled tools
- Complexity: Move from simple to complex Automation to deliver greater value
Automation Strategy Consultants help organizations realize a positive ROI by Identifying value to get all possible benefits from Automation.
The basic formula principle for calculating ROI is
- ROI = (Gain from the investment – Cost of investment) / Cost of investment
Organizations must look deeper to understand the value of their Automation initiative.
The following are key components for calculating Automation ROI in addition to the basic ROI calculation.
- Cost of automation investment
- Software licenses
- Hardware / Cloud
- Cost of staff to discover, build and deploy
- Cost to automate processes
- Cost of deployed Automation
- Cost of staff to support and maintain
- Cost of software robots (investment) performing tasks vs. humans (salary)
Our unique Strategic Framework will Produce Guaranteed Results and provide structure for tracking Automation value.
