In battling the Coronavirus pandemic, life-saving and life-enhancing processes are required across many industries. Let me share with you our new reality.Read More
With the spread of Coronavirus’ crippling effect, there is a global effort to adjust behavior and avoid infection – both at home and at work. As the training and knowledge manager at Kryon (connect with me on LinkedIn), my department is adjusting quickly and responding to the changing regulations.
A Move of Necessity
Health regulations have forced people in different countries to stay at home, cancel conferences, avoid flights and, basically, avoid any unnecessary activity that may expose you to the virus.
For Kryon, getting customers onboarded and trained is for certain considered a “necessary” activity. For example:
As the world feels the effects of COVID-19 (“Coronavirus”), the business community has no choice but to cope with the millions of people quarantined, travel standstill and massive economic disruption, with plunging stock markets based on fears of global recession triggered by coronavirus horizon. Concern is building as entire workforces, university and school students are quarantined to their homes, resulting in billions of dollars of lost revenue.
The Future of Work is no longer a philosophical concept. I am one of the self-isolated millions currently working from home due to last week’s business trip. And I say that the future of work is happening now. With all of us talking about digital workers, and how ‘doing business’ will change, there is no doubt that Coronavirus is accelerating these changes at lightning speed.
So, what does this mean for enterprises and what can you do? Enterprises must maintain business continuity during coronavirus turmoil by accelerating their automation strategy.
Enforce Health-First Policies
First and foremost, protect employees’ health. Here at Kryon, we are strict in enforcing quarantine for those who have returned from affected countries. We too, after painful deliberation, took the decision to cancel our company events. Following employee disappointment, it is clear that the decision was the right one.
Initiate Automation Programs ASAP
Beyond these fundamental policies, enterprises must plan for both the short term and long term. When it’s in everyone’s best interest to stay at home and out of harm’s way, the virtual workforce is an unquestionable necessity. That means that if you haven’t yet rolled out a comprehensive Robotic Process Automation (RPA) initiative, you should. And quickly. And if you have, then look at how to optimize it and expand it across your company.
But let’s say, you are ready to push the RPA button. These projects start with Business Analysts executing discovery workshops and interviews with employees. This requires travel, hotel stay and considerable time spent sitting in close proximity of other people. But as quarantines and travel advisories become more severe by the hour, how do we maintain ‘business as usual’?
Business as Usual for Kryon Customers
Well… for Kryon customers it’s Business as Usual - they have a safe, continuous and revenue-building workplace.
Today is International Women’s Day. As women in technology, we’re part of a burgeoning community succeeding in a dynamic and challenging industry. We’ve chosen today to kick off Kryon’s global Women in RPA campaign to highlight the many accomplished women in our industry. Women are blazing trails in every part of the tech world, and many are leading digital organizational transformation in banking, telecommunications, manufacturing, travel, and countless other industries.
The equality gap / Closing the gap
Women in RPA mirror women in other sectors of technology – talented, committed and rising in the ranks but too few in number. The simple fact is we’re still underrepresented, especially the higher we climb.

We at Kryon started the year with a bang by hosting our Sales Kickoff 2020 event here in Israel. And coming as it did exactly one year into my own personal journey with Kryon, it was incredible to see just how much we’ve achieved as a company in such a short amount of time.Read More
Forrester’s recent guide on the Future of Work analyzes the ways in which automation is expected to change everything and anything to do with work – starting at the beginning, with fundamental questions such as what an organization is, what a company does, and how exactly the work gets done.
Automation is not happening in a vacuum – rather, in tandem with parallel trends that combine to create new types of business opportunities. Here’s some of how the intersection of automation and other trends are expected to pan out:
It’s that time of year again. The nights have drawn in, at least in the Northern Hemisphere, and the temperatures have dropped. As we approach the holiday season — and 2020 looms large on the horizon — our thoughts naturally turn to the past year.Read More
