Optimize process and enable productivity
Workflow and content automation can have a significant impact across business functions, cutting down on clutter, increasing productivity and leading to a sizable increase in efficiencies. Check out a few of the examples where workflow automation improves operational effectiveness.
Most HR departments and organizations have automated their data processes, but not their management of content and unstructured information. For those, they are still mired in paper-based processes. Digital Workflow Automation helps HR teams increase efficiencies and remove risks in their recruiting and selection, employee onboarding, file management (like leave requests and timesheet tracking), policies and procedures administration, compliance and notifications, performance review management, and employee separation processes.
More importantly, automating these routine processes allows HR pros to focus on developing and implementing employee initiatives that really make a difference for employee experience and morale.
Business-critical processes like contract management, vendor and contract approvals, invoice processing, expense and travel approvals, expense management, budgeting, and mergers and acquisitions, all demand timely attention because they drive core functions in your organization. digital workflow automation streamlines these processes, and helps ensure fiscal responsibility and consistent ROI across the enterprise.
The hub for all-things technology related, your IT department provides technical support to both internal and external customers, and processes many different requests and tasks in any given day. An IT team’s success is largely measured by the speed and quality of their service request management. After all, nothing impacts productivity more than when an employee’s computer doesn’t work, or they can’t access the network. Digital Workflow Automation will help your IT team more quickly and effectively manage help desk requests and provide better service and increased productivity all the way around.
Effectively marketing and selling your services and products is the foundation of business success. Automating and streamlining the most common sales and marketing processes frees up your team so they can spend more time building meaningful relationships with customers and prospects, creating more effective targeted marketing campaigns, and developing stronger collaboration among their own team members.
Legal organizations process staggering amounts of information every year, much of which is paper-based. That can translate into hundreds of hours being spent manually generating, reviewing, and managing documents. These inefficient manual processes can impact your business with costly delays, inaccuracies, along with unnecessary security and compliance risks. Digital Workflow Automation will help reduce costs, ensure security and compliance, increase efficiency and productivity, and allow your team to work on higher value tasks and provide more responsive and reliable delivery of services.
Visibility into day-to-day business operations is what allows organizations to stay competitive. That means having the ability to quickly know where a purchase order is in the approval process, or when the materials needed for manufacturing are going to arrive, and other mission critical data at your fingertips at any given moment. This kind of workflow automation gives you clear insight into your business processes with real-time reports, digital trails for document routing, automated approval processes to track each change and next step, and the ability to reduce errors and time-to-market.
Digital workflow automation will transform your business and your team, providing new capabilities and improving existing ones. It is essential to the process of Digital Transformation.
