Automation in consulting can be strategically implemented across various areas such as client onboarding, data collection and analysis, report generation, proposal creation, project management, resource allocation, invoicing, CRM systems, task tracking, lead generation, and marketing campaigns. By identifying repetitive manual tasks or processes that are time-consuming, error-prone, or resource-intensive, consulting firms can effectively implement automation to streamline operations, improve efficiency, enhance client interactions, and drive overall productivity within the consultancy.
