Before we climb on to our soapbox to discuss one of our favorite automation efficiency topics, we wanted to start with a kick-off question: when was the last time you sent someone a letter in the mail? As in, you got some paper stock, you typed or wrote out your message, folded it neatly, inserted it into an envelope, purchased a stamp and walked it to the mailbox or post office to wait the appropriate number of days for it to arrive at its intended destination (in some cases never knowing if it did). Has it been a while? 

By contrast, when was the last email or instant message that you created and sent by pushing a button? It may seem trite, but this obvious and transformational improvement in the cost and timeliness of communications leads nicely to the subject of this post. Writing a check is like writing a letter when there is email or IM. It’s perhaps familiar, but wildly less efficient.
