The flow of information is critical to the success of any business, no matter how large or small.
In many businesses information flow is often hindered by manual processes, old fashioned systems and paper-based processes. Staff are bogged down with repetitive, manual tasks and managers are frustrated by hold-ups and information black holes.
That’s where workflow automation comes into play.
Having the right information, at the right time, is the key to being a smart, agile and competitive organisation.
Automating your business processes with workflow automation can transform your business into a more productive and responsive environment. The removal of repetitive manual tasks streamlines processes and enables better decision making by management, through the availability of real-time operational data.
3 Benefits of Workflow Automation:
Your staff are more productive
Think about all the potential mishaps which may occur in a traditional, manual workflow process that relies on paper forms or people. There is data entry errors, mislaid paperwork, a staff member away on leave causing a bottleneck or misunderstood instructions.
All these issues have the potential to hamper business productivity and stifle growth.
With workflow management software, the responsibility of completing processes shifts from humans to a program, enabling workflow to become consistent, error free and much faster.
Rules and forms ensure staff have a clear idea of what they have to do, when. Furthermore, the burden of repetitive manual tasks reduces, so your people have more time for work that requires innovative thought. Good for them, means good for your business.
Management can make better decisions
When business processes become automated, data is captured more efficiently and accurately; eliminating complexity and risk.
Improved data leads to more informed decision-making for management. For example, they can see the state of any given workflow in real-time. They can view how many similar workflows have been completed in a given time period and what the issues were. All this powerful information is available at their fingertips through reporting tools and dashboards that workflow automation software offers.
Tasks can be completed on smart devices, anywhere
In our modern, digital workplace staff rely on their mobile phones and tablets to perform their work. Whether approving orders, checking invoices or responding to customer inquiries.
Relying on manual processes and paper-forms, limits the productivity of staff to a physical location, within traditional work hours. This scenario is becoming more obsolete as the mobile workforce continues to rise.
A workflow automation business application which operates on mobile devices gives your staff the tools they need to perform tasks off-site, including visiting a client, on the factory floor or out on the road.
For organisations with dispersed teams and departments spread across multiple sites or global offices, innovative business apps are necessary to facilitate collaborative workflows in real-time.
