The manufacturing sector has changed dramatically in recent years, with companies integrating new technologies into their operations and building relationships with customers through digital channels. This means that manufacturing companies have more opportunities than ever to innovate and make improvements across their organizations.
However, there's room for improvement in automating critical business processes in manufacturing companies. ServiceNow can help manufacturers improve efficiency, reduce errors, and streamline workflows, freeing people to focus on more strategic tasks.
The manufacturing industry is highly digitized. Companies use digital tools to improve efficiency and reduce costs, from the design process to production and delivery. Yet, companies still need to be more dependent on paper-based and manual steps regarding the processes involved in how things get made.
This disconnect between how things are designed and manufactured has led to several problems for manufacturers. For example:
The ServiceNow platform can help manufacturing companies connect the dots between people, systems, and processes to speed delivery, reduce errors, and increase productivity.
ServiceNow uses artificial intelligence to automate repetitive tasks that humans would otherwise perform. This can include sending emails or texts when equipment needs to be serviced or updating customers on their orders without having to crunch numbers in a spreadsheet manually.
Automating manufacturing tasks can increase efficiency and accuracy while streamlining workflows, freeing people to focus on more strategic activities.
Process automation can handle administrative tasks like creating a purchase order or getting approvals for a vendor invoice.

Processes in which data is entered, processed, and analyzed by machines are called digital processes. Digital process automation is when you use software to automate an otherwise manual task to be done faster, cheaper, and more consistently. For example, if you're working with vendors and suppliers regularly and have the same requests for information each time (like invoices), this could be automated using software programmed via APIs or other programming languages. You could also create dashboards showing KPIs related to your business: how much revenue has been generated each month over the past year? These dashboards go beyond financial metrics; they could include things like customer satisfaction scores or employee engagement levels- useful information all packed neatly into one easy-to-read screen!
