Why Automate Business Processes?

A SharePoint Flows tutorial by Peter Kalmström

Flow iconBefore we start looking into Microsoft Flow in this tutorial series, we will discuss why you should automate business processes in the first place.

In the demo below, Peter Kalmström, CEO and Systems Designer of kalmstrom.com Business Solutions, talks about the benefits of SharePoint automation compared to manual processes.


A flow always works in the same way, so once you have tested the flow and made sure that it works as it should, you can rely on its accuracy. The flow follows the same process in the same way every time. It does not make mistakes or variations now and then, like we humans do.


With a flow, it is easy to track processes. Flows can log and document what has been done, something that is often requested by the management and sometimes even by law. Such tasks are often boring to perform manually.


Even if flows normally have a delay of 5 minutes, they perform most processes much quicker than a human can do.
