One tool, all the processes
Does your team use different tools for different processes? Or maybe your business uses an expensive process automation tool for even the most basic workflows. Well, we’ve got great news for you.
Flock’s very own Process Automation module can help you automate recurring tasks and processes— from common to custom workflows and even the most complex repetitive functions. Process automation helps your team be more productive on a daily basis by doing the work in the background which frees you up to do more of the work you enjoy.
What is process automation?
Process automation removes the hassle of manually processing repetitive or redundant tasks that often take up too much of your time, can cause unnecessary delays, or possibly lead to human error. Many processes you do over and over again—like employee onboarding and reimbursement claims— can be done automatically and in real time with process automation.

What is an example of process automation in Flock?
Say you’re the HR head of your company. We bet that one of the most routine things you do is onboard batch after batch of new hires. Now, this can be rather tedious — you need to constantly follow up with multiple stakeholders and teams. We’re thinking seat allocation to laptop requisitions.
So, tell us...in a case like this, would you rather:
1. Send out dozens of emails to onboard employees one at a time?
2. Just start a process and have tasks automatically assigned?
Managing multiple manual processes or tasks can become quite cumbersome (not to mention time-consuming). Flock’s Process Automation tool integrates seamlessly with Flock's messenger to give you real-time updates on the tasks you are a part of, or processes you have started.
Benefits of Process Automation
- One platform for all the processes: The module allows you to automate any process within your organization. The module’s flexibility ensures that even complex workflows involving several departments (e.g., employee onboarding) can be easily designed and managed.
- Increased productivity and faster resolution: If you’re working on a task, all requested details and communication are documented within the task. This coupled with smart reminders ensures increased productivity in your team and helps get work done faster.
- No technical skills required: As the module does not require an extensive setup, anyone can start automating tasks using Process Automation with little or no assistance from the IT team.
- Much cheaper than existing alternatives: The module comes free and completely integrated with Flock's messenger. Even better, using Flock Pro with Process Automation is always available at a fraction of the cost of other process automation tools on the market.
