You know why you’re here.
Staff are dealing with paper-based approvals and workflows, just because “that’s the way it’s always been done” which has now become tiresome. Now, filing cabinets are overflowing, or your online and offline files are just too hard to find.
Think about document management at your organisation.
- Inputting data manually?
- Storing files in multiple locations, both physically and digitally?
- Spending time searching for the information they need?
- Physically walking documents from one part of the office to another in order to action the next part of the workflow, such as, for example, getting an authorizing signature?
- Double-handling documents?
While each of these activities might not take up much time individually, collectively and spread across the business, this quickly adds up to hundreds of hours that could otherwise have been spent on revenue-generating activity.
An Enterprise Content Management (ECM) solution can work to streamline document workflows, because it:
- Eliminates the need to manually input data;
- Stores and tags all documents stored in a central location, avoiding needless duplication;
- Has a simple yet powerful search function so users can quickly find the information they need; and,
- Digitizes and automates businesses processes, thereby optimizing workflows, eliminating double-handling and physical transport requirements.
