Become an Automated Company: 7 Ways to Integrate AI In Your Workplace

Artificial intelligence will revolutionize every business on the planet; it’s only a matter of time. If you want your business to become an at least partially automated company, this article will give you 7 ways to integrate AI in your workplace.

The future of the automated company is in artificial intelligence.

In fact, only 15% of startups are using AI… but that’s expected to more than double over the next year.

You need artificial intelligence on your ultimate startup checklist for:

  • Seamless processes
  • Preparation to grow
  • Automated processes
  • Increased profit margins

Sounds great, right? Here’s how to implement AI as part of your workplace now so you can start seeing all those benefits.

1. Embrace it as the Future

Whether you’re going into startup life or growing an existing business, AI is the wave of the future.

The first step is acceptance. Before you can fully integrate AI into your business, you’ll need to embrace the trend.

The best way is to educate yourself on the ways AI is shaping your industry is to educate yourself. Read blogs, search online, and talk to your network about how they’re using AI to create an automated business.

Here’s what you can do:

  1. Move out of denial. Become aware of how AI is affecting your industry. Find out how your competitors are using AI to better their business.
  2. Start planning for AI integration. Even if most of your processes are still handled by manual work, you can start to plan for AI now. Be forward thinking and visualize scenarios using AI in your processes.
  3. Deconstruct jobs into tasks and think about which ones can be automated and those that can’t. Begin to hire people with particular skill sets that match the job requirements AI won’t cover.

Ultimately, embrace humanity as you embrace AI. It isn’t about ‘replacing the world with robots’… it’s about assimilating a world where tech and people work together.

Change your mindset and become part of the movement.

2. Take Advantage of Existing Platforms

To create AI on your own can be expensive and messy. The best way to use it as a tool to enhance your systems is to leverage what’s already out there.

Big brands and companies do this by open-sourcing their AI efforts and using task-specific AI that’s already created for its purpose.

There’s already a ton of existing platforms out there with the power to integrate with your processes. Rather than create new applications, find how you can make them work for you.

Many AI resources out there will naturally integrate with your business. Look for industry-specific AI if you want to make sure it’s as seamless as possible.

For example, there are construction apps out there made for project management on site.

Another example is CRM software specifically for creatives and service-based businesses.

But keep in mind, a lot of AI will suit multiple industries for application specific purposes.

3. Keep the Customer Experience in Mind

Becoming an automated company is supposed to streamline efficiency. But this can’t take away from the customer experience if done incorrectly.

When integrating AI, make sure it’s going to be easy to use for you and the customer.

Review the platforms you choose to integrate from both perspectives. Remember, AI can affect your reputation as a brand if you don’t keep this in mind.

Start with productivity and customer experience as the foundation for your AI implementation.

Ask yourself:

  • Does this improve efficiency?
  • Does it make it easier for my customer?
  • Will my customer miss out on a personalized experience?
  • How can I get feedback from my customers about their experience when engaging with the AI to ensure quality?

4. Use it to Fix Your Bottlenecks

Where’s the first place to integrate AI?

Wherever your KPIs show you have a bottleneck in your company. These are great places to consider improving efficiency with AI!

Start with a small problem that will have a high return on investment.

For example, can you implement an automated business booking system for your company’s calendar?

The allure for many companies is to go big right at the beginning when it comes to AI. But one of the best ways to ease into AI and ensure an ROI is by starting small.

Then, be sure to create clear expectations for performance. Know what the AI can do for you and apply it to your processes.

Then quickly test the AI and decide if it worked. Fail fast then move on to finding a new solution or area to test implementation.

5. Keep it Personal

It’s not easy to have the finesse of personal touch when it comes to creating an automated company.

How can you incorporate AI and make sure it still has a personal touch for your customer?

Start with using AI to create a more personal experience for your leads. For example, use it to create a follow-up sequence of engagement.

This can be a cost-effective way to show your customers you care about them engaging with your business or content.

6. Connect to Your KPIs

You’ll need to connect your key performance indicators to your AI to keep track of performance.

In fact, before even integrating AI, you can consider your KPIs and where technology can improve company performance.

Otherwise, AI can become an unnecessary distraction that isn’t driving growth.

Once the AI can be discussed regarding the KPI metrics it can help improve, it becomes a way to improve productivity to consult with the team.

7. Consider Your Team

Artificial intelligence will replace 16% of American jobs by the end of the decade… but that doesn’t mean AI has taken over completely.

Consider your team as they’ll be dealing with AI as part of their day-to-day. Ask yourself:

  • How can you find a system that will create less work for your team?
  • What ways can you train your team to use AI efficiently?
  • Will it replace jobs in your company? How can you prepare for that?

Next Steps for Your Automated Company

There’s been a 14x increase in the amount of AI startups since 2000.

Creating a more automated company is clearly in demand for many organizations!
