The new environment created by the pandemic has tested operational workflows of all companies across multiple verticals. Many businesses realized that their procedures are not as impermeable and automated as they believed. The realization imparted a sense of strong necessity to automate and digitize as many regulatory procedures and workflows as feasible.
