Automator

In today's age of digitalization, automations are inevitable in every company. Many processes can be automated or simplified through programs, interfaces or corresponding plugins. Good for you as an entrepreneur. You save time, sources of error and therefore money - and you and your employees can spend more time on essentials, creative processes or customers.

Often the devil is in the details and unnecessary minutes of work add up day by day and week by week. It may well be that we break years of habits with digital solutions or that processes can change completely. But all with one goal in mind: for the sake of the company, for the sake of profitability.

What is Automator?

An alternative explanation.

Hans and the Empire

Once upon a time, in a galaxy far, far away.., Hans was dismissed by the Galactic Senate, even though he was the founder of the empire. They argued that the Loxo-holders would no longer tolerate the poor figures and that costs had to be cut. Hans had to find a solution. Back in his office, Hans walked in circles thinking about ways to rescue his job, but he couldn't focus because of the loud noises coming from his computer. "I'm about to destroy everything here" he thought to himself and hit the wall. With the force of the blow, a black cape with "Automator" printed on it suddenly fell into the middle of the room. Hans examined it and found a pinned note. "Name of me is, Automator. Speak I do, 7000 languages. May Loxotipu be with you" Hans shook his head. This Automator thing was too late and it also should rather go to grammar school. Fed up with the noise of the computer, he made his way there to turn it off. Upon closer inspection, Hans realozed that 4 programs were currently grumbling. "ÜÜÜ ÄÄ ÖÖ", "KKK LL MMM", "RRR FFF SSS". They should ALL be in grammar class, he thought to himself and opened the translator program on this computer.

CRM: "I'm bored, every day I have to watch a customer spend 10 minutes being entered into my system"
Merchandise management: "What do you say? I have to manually re-enter dozens of orders from the shop system on my end every day! What a waste of time!"
Project management: "I don't understand you! Type it in manually, please!"
Accounting, "I'm freaking out! I've got dozens of mistakes from all of you again, don't you understand me!"

The programs didn't understand each other and started fighting out of this misunderstanding. Hans, still angry, went to the cape, put it on and ran back down at the computer ready to fight. But in that moment CRM looked at Accounting with his mouth wide open: CRM just understood a word Accounting said. Accounting understood CRM too, something completely new to him, so naturally Accounting reacted with pure panic. "CRAZY!" Hans thought to himself. He realized what happened and ran to the Galactic Senate.

Hans proudly announced that his cape can reduce their costs many times over. The Senate recommended a psychologist, but Hans did not give in. The cape is called Automator and with it they can enable communication between all their programs. Hans went on to explain how much time is wasted manually entering an order in 4 different programs and how this is a big source of errors. And that wouldn't have to be the case anymore! The Automator understands the languages of their systems and can automate all their processes! And do it the exact way they need it for their processes! The jaws of all senators dropped. What exactly happened then, nobody knows until today. But the efficiency in the Empire had increased several times and so Hans lived as the most powerful Emperor until the end of his days.

Moral of the story: The Automator allows communication between different programs, and thus the automation of various processes.
