Get buy-in for automation

Use the data Next Matter offer to convince the management that automating workflows brings value.

The Next Matter Dashboard shows a calculation of how much time Next Matter saves every week.

We assume that each completed step saves you, on average, three minutes.

Not only does the time saved on the activity itself count but also the hidden cost of lost focus and employee overwhelm. Research indicates, that one context switch alone costs 23 minutes and decreases overall employee satisfaction and health.

Indeed, your very own Next Matter use cases might lead to a different minute average per step. Still, looking at the research and having analyzed and discussed this with our customers over and over again we are confident that this figure is conservative.

That's why the calculation we use is the following:
(Steps completed this week x 3 minutes) / 60 = Hours saved this week

Additionally, it's worth mentioning that each Next Matter step automates many aspects of operations at once:

  • Writing a task
  • Assigning it to the right person or team
  • Explaining to them how to do it right
  • Follow-ups
  • Escalations
  • Keeping the team in the loop
  • Updating the spreadsheet tracker
  • Remembering to make the quarterly budget adjustment
  • Validating customer input
  • Writing the auditor report
