With today's increasingly remote-first work environment, teams are looking for ways to empower and streamline their workflows with the help of innovative new technologies. And, with remote workforces likely here to stay, no other time in recent history has been more ideal to implement new solutions that redefine how employees interact and collaborate.

Because of this, more organizations are looking at no-code automation. In doing so, businesses empower the average employee to become a no-code developer. And with so much room for growth in the workflow automation industry with no-code solutions, it's safe to say we are merely at the start of the era of the no-code developer.

No-Code Developers Are Empowered to Improve Their Company's Workflow

In any kind of business or industry, the efficiency of operations are a major contributor to how successful an organization can be. Wasted time on mundane tasks limits productivity, which in turn can minimize output.

For example, rather than an employee submitting a ticket directly to their company's IT team, they can submit a form that automatically creates a ticket within the system. This accelerates the process of organizing information for the specific issue and saves time for the IT team by eliminating the need for manually completing a ticket form.

But, it's likely that the average employee lacks the ability or knowledge to create a function like this, which is where no-code solutions come into play. With the proper no-code solution, any employee can improve their own workflows — as well as processes across the entire company.

There are many benefits to doing this. First, a refined workflow means employees will have more time in their day to focus on strategic, less tedious tasks. Tasks that require critical thinking will receive deserved attention without being backlogged by other work. It's also important to factor in the current state of the global, remote workforce. Although it has become the new normal, connecting to a video conference room to brainstorm or have productive meetings can still feel fruitless at times. An improved workflow enhances and unlocks more potential for how these remote collaborations can take place.

Work-life balance is another consideration when it comes to adopting no-code solutions as it frees up time to take more breaks and reduces the potential burnout that so many have faced over this past year. Not to mention the positive impact more streamlined operations can have on creativity across the workforce, a crucial part of driving business success. Taking on the role of a no-code developer can spark renewed creativity when employees realize the power and magnitude of what they can accomplish with these solutions.

IT Teams Can Concentrate on More Critical Issues

Aside from the benefits to themselves and the business, empowering more no-code developers can positively impact the IT teams within the organization as well. In addition to ensuring their staff's technology is in working order through longer-form remote interactions, IT professionals must maintain a remote infrastructure that limits disturbance to their company's operations while also being more vigilant to new security vulnerabilities that have surfaced due to increased remote work. With these factors in mind, the last concern IT teams should have is how effective an employee can be in their role.

No-code solutions give employees the power to take control of their day-to-day workflows and allow IT teams to focus on critical issues related to infrastructure, security and ultimately business continuity. By implementing these solutions and training employees to use them to the fullest potential, all parties reap the benefits. We're still in the early days for digital transformation — the sooner organizations give their employees the chance to become no-code developers, the better chance they will have to remain successful and ahead of competitors.
