How To Save Money Using Automation Software?

Source: Zapier

Nearly two-thirds of knowledge workers (64 percent) currently use automation software at work—and nearly a fifth (18 percent) intend to use it in the future.

No one dreams of doing the repetitive work that we’ve been told is a necessary part of our job. This could explain why people are turning to automation (i.e., software designed to automatically complete tasks/processes) to help them work smarter, complete tasks faster, focus on important work, and make them better at their jobs.

That’s according to a recent survey, conducted by The Harris Poll on behalf of Zapier, which explored who’s using automation at work—and why. This quarterly report will measure knowledge workers’ use of automation at work over time to better understand how it’s impacting their work.

Ask knowledge workers why they use automation software, and the most common answers are all about self-improvement and agility: completing tasks faster, focusing on things that matter, and being more organized are all near the top of the list. Here are the most common responses.
