Autopilot Workflow Solutions, a software company in Cape Town, has won the “new or emerging ISV” category of the Microsoft South Africa Strategic Partner of the Year award. The company makes low-code workflow software. This happened just a few months after integrating with the Microsoft Teams platform, which lets users streamline and automate their business processes worldwide.
Autopilot automates more than 100,000 workflows per month for companies in different industries. It replaces any manual business process with a seamless, automated solution that ensures compliance and reduces risk. Since the pandemic, companies have realised that working from home is a good idea, but they have had to deal with several problems related to HR processes and workflows.
Using the power of Microsoft Teams, you can create tasks and assignments, automate sequences, and get essential reports in a fraction of the time and at a fraction of the cost of using Autopilot, which was the 15th company in the world to be transactable on Microsoft Teams. Leave requests, expense claims, purchase order requests, IT support requests, and onboarding of customers, vendors, or employees are all handled automatically and can be accessed through the app.
South Africa is known for having people with world-class skills. Some of the most successful tech companies in the world were started by South Africans. But there is only a little talent, especially at the top. So that they can work on highly technical software development, junior developers need to find a way to speed up their careers.
This is a problem because companies don’t hire junior developers because they need to gain the skills to do these jobs.
The other option is to make it easier for people to join using low-code development tools like Autopilot. Low-code development is becoming more popular because it makes it easier for developers and people who don’t know much about coding to create apps and websites.
By 2024, low-code development will be used for more than 65% of application development, and 75% of large businesses will use at least four low-code development tools for IT application development and citizen development.
There’s no denying the longevity of remote work and the progressiveness of innovations that streamline operations. Low-code software development will be necessary to swiftly respond to ever-shifting business needs and situations.
Autopilot Workflow Solutions has been a valued Microsoft partner for many years, and we’re excited to recognise the innovative work they’ve done this year. One of the first of its kind in the world, the launch of an integrated ISV solution on Microsoft Teams brings local innovation to the forefront.
We congratulate them on this honour at our Partner Awards and look forward to more innovation and a solutions-based approach to solving business problems, says Lionel Moyal, global partner solutions director at Microsoft South Africa.
