DeLynne Ano is the Founder of Runli, a business workflow automation app that simplifies business back-office workflows by automating the hand-off between employees and departments, thereby improving efficiency and reducing the margin of error. DeLynne has over 25 years of executive experience with Fortune 100 companies. Her mentoring of businesses has resulted in billions of dollars of client revenue growth in dozens of industries, from food, beverage, and packaging to entertainment and media. She started her consulting business, Scape Group, Inc., in 2010 where she helped her first client grow from $750,000 annually to $24 million.

Systems and processes are essential for a business to run efficiently. They promote consistency, improve time management, and help reduce errors. To start, DeLynne Ano advises business owners to identify the work they do very well and surround themselves with people who are experts in the things they don’t do well.
