Have you ever heard the saying, “To win in the marketplace you must first win in the workplace”?
How do you define “winning at the workplace”? For our purposes discussing automated workflow solutions, we’ll say that in order to win in the workplace you need efficient processes, increased productivity, and happy employees – and we all know that happy employees translate to happy customers (aka winning in the marketplace).
An automated document workflow solution enables you to improve customer service, streamline accounts payable and other internal workflows, and gives you an edge over competitors. We’ll show you how to leverage a document management software to effectively improve interdepartmental communication, process invoices and payments faster, and enjoy the benefits of going paperless.
Even the most efficient workers spend too much time performing manual, time-consuming tasks that ultimately slow down processes and leave room for human error. How much time is spent routing work to teammates or superiors and awaiting a response? Implementing document workflow software alleviates much of the burden associated with routing documents, approving requests, and managing customer files. This makes employees and customers happier, boosts productivity, and improves efficiency. Success!
Let’s take Accounts Payable as an example:
You want an accounts payable automated workflow software designed with user experience as the top priority and customized to fit your specific needs. Whether it’s invoice processing, check requests, payroll, dealing with delinquent payments, or more, AP automation standardizes processes to help employees focus on important tasks and work more efficiently.
Benefits of AP Automation:
The increased efficiency gained by using an electronic document workflow solution will allow your organization to significantly improve service to your customers, pay vendors faster without needing to increase staff or budget, give employees more time to focus on important responsibilities, and create more effective communication between departments.

In addition to enhanced productivity, the transition to an automated document workflow includes managing documents electronically — which will free office space by eliminating the need to store massive volumes of hard-copy records, improve compliance and audit preparedness (we’ll get into that in the next blog), and make it easy to retrieve documents from the convenience of your desktop 24/7.
