Automation for a Smooth Workflow: Best Tools and Applications
January 9, 2019 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
This FREE workshop includes lunch and networking with like-minded colleagues.
As a small business, you could save time and money with automation, but it can be daunting to pick out the right tools. There is no need to purchase a big (and expensive) software package.
Join expert Pamela Bradford, Program Manager and Supply Chain/Logistics Management Analyst, to learn about the best automation tools and hands-on ways to apply them to your business.
Ms. Bradford will introduce you to open-source and inexpensive ways to organize work and information and discuss how you can write the requirements that articulate your needs to a database or application developer.
Things you will learn:
• Define your workflow and refine it in context.
• Distinguish your unique value proposition and product.
• Roadmap your strategy and identify process improvement projects.
• Learn how to describe what it is you need to a developer.
You will come away from this meetup with free tools and templates that you and your organization can use to make all of the above a breeze.
