Workflow automation solutions: What are they? And do you need them?

Posted: 22nd February 2017

Your multifunction printer may already print, copy, scan, and fax, but did you know that the addition of software solutions can help you to multiply your productivity and improve your company’s efficiency?

Workflow automation solutions address pain points in document management in many industries, by assisting with the simplification and automation of everyday processes.

They enable users to better manage their information, improve document security, and get the most out of their investment in their printers. The result is not only simplified and quicker processes, but also a reduction in paper waste and an ability for organisations to interact with their customers, employees and suppliers on any platform, which is vital in today’s increasingly digital and mobile work environment.

Using workflow automation solutions, you can transform manual, error-prone processes into automated and accurate approaches that take significantly less time, therefore boosting productivity.

In addition, these automation solutions organise and collate important information originating from multiple sources – both paper and digital – which enables organisations to serve up content across multiple channels with much greater ease.

Workflow automation can help to streamline the management of controlled information, thereby accelerating the traceability of documents whilst improving audit reporting. It can also help to ensure that you complete processes consistently and on time, with improved quality through automated checklists.

Many organisations use workflow automation to eradicate complicated processes that radiate inefficiency and cost. The use of workflow automation services can lead the way to greater productivity and to digital transformation.

Workflow automation solutions may be useful to you if your business is made up of time consuming processes and you’d like to reduce the amount of time spent on these tasks.

To find out more about how these solutions may be able to assist you in the running and efficiency of your organisation, contact Richard Sweeny on 07500 004 563 or email richard.sweeny@xeretec.co.uk
