Are you looking for better workflow solutions to improve productivity and save money for your organization? Workflow automation transforms established business processes for increased visibility, streamlined communication, and improved accuracy throughout your organization.
Here are three questions to ask yourself when considering whether automated workflow solutions can help your business.
- Do you have established processes that are ready to go? Applying automated workflow solutions to a process that’s mostly unstructured could lead to a bad start. Trying to develop workflows in combination with automation will likely end in frustration and little desire on the part of your staff to try again. When applying automated workflow solutions, begin with a process that’s already well-established and working. If printed paper forms exist, that means your employees are familiar with the process. Instead of wondering where to start, they’ll see the time-saving benefits of your new workflow solutions as soon as they get off the ground.
- Is there a lack of visibility into your processes? The steps in most manual processes are difficult to track. In many cases, the only way to finding out where a project stands is to contact individuals and wait for them to get back to you. Automated workflow solutions allow all parties to see each step of the process, check on the status of individual actions, and find out long it is to project completion.
- Are communication roadblocks a constant issue? Relying on email for project management can send even the most well-planned process into the slow-lane. Just one missed email or voicemail could put your project past the deadline and over budget. Workflow solutions that include project status bars and automatic notifications for critical players can eliminate the problem of miscommunication.
