There’s no doubt that automation is the best way to eliminate last-mile risks. Automating the last mile is easy and cost-effective. There are lots of options. You can develop in-house software, purchase and install on-premises applications, or sign up for cloud-based services.
No matter which approach you choose, make sure your automated solution:
- Eliminates every human touch point in your process – data should go “straight through” from sources systems to end sales and client documents.
- Has built-in checks for required regulatory elements and compliance approvals, with an alert or do-not publish default if the presentation is missing vital pieces.
- Provides for a single pool of data, approves it within the system, and only then publishes it for use in various sales and marketing materials.
