What are some of the prime reasons automating document workflow would enhance your business?
How often are you in the middle of a project that requires team involvement and you have no idea where your team stands? Automating document workflow you will always allow for notification of the progress and what steps are needed next. The responsibility of forward progress on any effort should never fall into the hands of one individual. Taking the necessary steps to increase productivity by including automation will ease the burden of misguided steps along the way.
Project Communication – By automating document workflow you will systemically realize an improved communication. When every person involved in the project has the same access to all the notes and communications during the process, there will be less redundant questions and more new thoughts. Acting upon information is less of a chore and far more productive when the task remains on point.
Project People – Keeping the right staff informed not only makes the process run smoothly, it empowers the people involved to be more proactive. Thus they will have the ability to be more involved in the entire process and possibly have the foresight to see potential pitfalls before they arise.
Project Efficiency – Knowing that each team member is reliant on the previous member’s contribution, automating document workflow enables an efficient chain of events to happen while recording each previous step. If at any time during the workflow something is either missed or neglected all team members can be made aware.
Project Errors – Let’s face the fact, most people will do the work they are inspected to do, not what they are often expected to do. If an electronic trails points to any one team member as a potential stumbling block, more team members will perform to their best ability. No more blaming “the person before me”!
Project Delivery – Once all of the team members have been able to review and sign off on the project, there is a much greater chance that all of the steps have been completed. Knowing that each person involved has the confidence in their part to insure a successful project will make the final delivery much easier with less worry.
By making the necessary investments in automating document workflow will not only insure the accuracy of the project, it will empower the people to realize the job has been completed to the best of everyone’s ability. No longer will the thought of new projects bring the fear of missed deadlines, poor planning or even missing team members.
