Workflow Automation In the Digital Age

Is your organization struggling to remain competitive because your businesses operational costs are higher than you had planned.  Perhaps your competitors seem to be able to get more done with less employees or maybe they just process more orders with the same staff.

These are real world indicators that your business would benefit by implementing Workflow Automation solutions like cDevWorkflow.  Any business process can be automated; either fully automated or partial automated but there is an optimum level that is both affordable and benificial.

In this world of Workflow Automation In the Digital Age the object is to establish an information system that will support the organizations growth not hinder it.  With workflow automation we focus on one workflow instance or process step at a time, seeking incremental gain.  Continuous improvement.  Some workflow automation processes  require little to no user interaction while others are a team effort.  A process that computes sales figures at the end of each month and posts them to the sales intranet site would be a very straight forward workflow automation task.  While a complicated workflow automation process might require several different user interactions for data entry, material allocation or design changes, and perhaps labor hours as well as requiring several departmental authorizations from users within an organization... would be achievable, and would pay great dividends to the organization.

Workflow automation and continuous improvement go hand in hand in the digital age.  In the past documenting processing savings was not only a team effort but in most cases the effort became a full time job.  With cDevWorkflow's Business Intelligence features, workflow automation is not just another tool or 3 ring binder to stack on the shelf.  cDevWorkflow will run in the background of your applications powering your business workflow designs.  The system will enforce compliance with organizational standards and procedures for you.  And more than that, cDevWorkflow will create a database of business intelligence the likes no SixSigma team has even brought before you.

Without a team, without a focus group, without you working all night or weekend the data is there.  All you need to do to discover where your customers order is in the process is select the tab, selected the customers workflow instance and press render.  Real time data at your fingertips.
