Today, every business and industry, be it SMBs or large enterprises, are working on transforming their workflow to recover and gain benefits in the coming years. A workflow is created whenever data is exchanged between the workforce and/or the systems. A Workflow is a sequence of orchestrated and repetitive tasks that processes a set of data. Effective workflows can transform a basic activity pattern to a processed form of task by systematically organizing resources to change materials, provide services, or process information into processes.

It is crucial to have seamless continuity to cope up with the market dynamics, and AI and Automation are used extensively to solve this purpose. Progressive entrepreneurs are looking to augment their core strengths and empower their people to utilize valuable time on essential tasks. 

In a report recently published by Globe Newswire, the Global Workflow Automation and Optimization Software Industry is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 7.3% over the period 2020-2027 and reach 4 billion by 2027.
