Do you magnify efficiency?

When you think about designing [something] using technology, do you magnify the efficiency or the inefficiency?

I came across this quote from Bill Gates in The 4-Hour Workweek:

“The first rule of any technology used in a business is that automation applied to an efficient operation will magnify the efficiency. The second is that automation applies to an inefficient operation will magnify the inefficiency.” — Bill Gates
