Did you know your business is leaking profit because of robots?
There simply aren’t enough hours in the day. And if you’ve ever thought, I don’t have enough time or I’m already working too hard, or I just feel stuck, you know what I mean? You’re right. If you’re running a solar business, you’ve got to keep on top of sales and accounting and all the usual businessy stuff on top of the solar-specific stuff like grid connection, paperwork and STCs and more.
There are plenty of tasks that you and your staff are doing that robots could actually do more quickly. On top of saving you time and money from reducing the amount of double entry that you do and the amount of effort it takes to keep things in sync, Automations are actually also going to reduce the amount of errors that you make, and they’re also going to free up your staff to use their talents, and that’s going to result in reduced staff turnover and the effort they have to put into new staff training. All that’s going to improve your business profitability at a structural level, which will then improve the valuation of your business should you come to sell.
Automation isn’t as easy as you think, but that’s not a bad thing because it’s that exact barrier that makes a difference between the manual process that you’re currently operating and all the benefits of automation, because that barrier is going to leave behind your competition still in manual. So stop trying to haggle your suppliers each and every week just in an effort to squeeze a little bit more profit out of your business and instead invest in a one off impact to your business that’s going to give you an instant impulse and pay dividends each and every week. So I hope you understand why to automate your solar business. In the next couple of videos, we’re going to run through what to automate and then how to automate it!
