Implementing Workflows for Document Automation Success
Document Automation Success Depends On Your Ability to Map and Automate Workflows
As more and more businesses embrace digital transformation, they are learning firsthand how important the process of workflow is to document automation success. Unfortunately, there are a lot of misconceptions about what “workflow” means and why it is so crucial to businesses.
What Are Workflows?
Workflows differ from the standard business processes you employ to remain operational. Automated workflows take each internal step of traditional document-driven processes and digitize them to mitigate vulnerabilities and allow you to measure results. Watch the video at the top of the page for answers to all of your workflow-related questions, including:
- Which departments can benefit from automating a document-driven process (i.e., Human Resources, Accounts Payable, Sales/Customer Service)?
- How can graphical workflow designers help organizations visualize operational steps more accurately?
- How can organizations create and automate workflow stages, routes, prompts, and settings without coding?
- How can organizations reduce their reliance on IT while maintaining fluid control of existing and future workflows?
- How can organizations eliminate tribal knowledge and create a repeatable digital process using workflows?
When you embrace workflow automation, your business will get faster, leaner, and more cost-efficient. Documents such as invoices and sales orders can be processed up to 90 percent more quickly without being compromised by human error or outdated filing systems. With Enterprise Content Management (ECM), you will gain the ability to handle most of the transactional content entering your system without any human intervention at all.
