The world has been through a turbulent decade in terms of the global economy with very few countries escaping the global downturn and increase in energy prices. Businesses have suffered to varying degrees and are now looking for ways to cut costs and future proof their organisations

Benefits of Automation

Automation is one of the areas where businesses across all sectors are looking to make savings and increase profits. It is true that automation can be implemented across various industries and can help reduce costs and at simultaneously deliver greater efficiencies and profitability for businesses.

There are considerations for a company before implementing automation. The setup and implementation cost, the frequency of use and overall life span of the technology are only a few of the questions that must be answered before automating systems. Taking the time to research where automation could work within your business can help you find ways to make it more affordable.

With finance options available to help you future-proof your business and increase production and manufacturing outputs. We have partnered with Equigroup to offer our clients finance packages on our full range of products, see the full range of packages here.

Some of the benefits of automation

  • Cost reduction – In some cases, labour can account for 75% of the costs associated with running a machine over its life span.
  • Scheduling – Automation means you can process continuously on a 24/7 basis when required
  • Consistency – An automated system ensures you are receiving a consistent and reliable output saving you time checking the production line and your end product.
  • Safety – reduces incidents of human error or negligent behaviour leading to accidents.
  • Ergonomics – The introduction of automation means less repetitive strain and muscle injuries for employees leading to a more positive, happy and efficient workforce.
