The Service Automation Foundation (SAF) course is an introduction to the Service Automation Framework for the design and delivery of automated services. Service providers who use service automation deliver their services through a self-service portal, platform or application directly to users.
Service Automation – the concept of delivering services through smart technology – is a rapidly growing area of interest for most organizations. Companies such as Spotify, Netflix and Uber (who deliver 100% automated services) have proven that organizations can achieve rapid growth and gain a competitive advantage by relying on Service Automation. The core objective of Service Automation Foundation training is to learn you how to transition analog (or manual) steps of service delivery process into automated steps.
By making this transition, service providers are able to deliver their services instantly, cost-effectively and to a potentially bigger market. Taking the steps towards the delivery of automated services is however not straightforward. Many organizations struggle with the question of where to start or which services to automate. The Service Automation Framework was developed to provide an answer to this question.
This Service Automation training course will give you deep insight into the concept of Service Automation, the concept by which you can automate your service offering. If you adequately apply Service Automation in your organization, you will see both employee and customer satisfaction rise and significantly increase the number of people who will ‘like’ your company.
