Business Process Automation
Reduce labour costs, increase profitability by leveraging experts who understand your specific business needs and can demonstrate working concept in as little as 2 weeks.
- No more manual updates
- No running the business on Excel sheets
- No dependency on others for running your business
Businesses rely on people to come up with solutions to opportunities. Many times approaches that were necessary at one point in time rely on Excel skills, custom developed database solutions or other “fly by the seat of the pants” solutions that prevent your company from scaling up. These solutions tend to have a lot of dependency on key people and unique processes that create significant labour costs and errors in the manual operations. Why spend hours slogging through things like:
- Processing orders
- Sending emails to your customers
- Get a listing of customers sorted by types to email
- Getting lists of people interested for an event with constraints
- Running a support desk
WHEW – All that can be EXHAUSTING – when it should be EFFORTLESS!

For businesses that need to bring various unique skillsets together to deliver an event.

Let the end clients pay via credit card online and automatically calculate the pricing based on business rules.
- Supplier process automation

The Powerful CMS team have provided an outstanding service to us, helping APLS create a new website, new customer database and linked administrative processes with a lot of business automation which will save our company a lot of time and money in the long run. Their flexibility, understanding and conceptual ability to realise our business needs has been outstanding, and developers have been available more or less 24/7 in the week of our launch as we worked through urgent site updates. Both our clients and our staff are delighted with the final product, which is a great improvement both in quality and efficiency from what has gone before. This has been a major project for APLS, and Powerful CMS have implemented our needs exceptionally well.
Very complex site but very reasonable price, very accomodating staff even though we had constant changes and presented with new involved ideas which were always recieved with interest and positivity
