Put Office Automation to Work for You!

Put Office Automation to Work for You!

The days when organizations can avoid automation technology are gone!  And, this is true for small businesses, large corporations and government agencies alike.  Today, if you hope to provide products or services to your customers and clients, you must employ office automation. 

The reasons for this are simple:

  • Customers and clients expect easy access and fast response
  • Competition is fierce
  • Information volume is enormous
  • Resources are limited

If you’re trying to perform your job with a computer, a printer and manual data entry, your success is limited.  But, there are simple, low-cost changes that your organization can make that will pay off big!  Here are a few:

  • Eliminate data entry -- replace paper-based forms with E-Forms
  • Reduce manual hand-offs --- create an electronic workflow
  • Streamline correspondence and processing – move to the Cloud
  • Eliminate paper – go paperless

Process Improvement Solutions for Everyday Office Problems

Process Improvement Solutions for Everyday Office Problems

Business process improvement” is an important sounding phrase that means improving the way your company provides:

  • Customer satisfaction
  • Cost containment
  • Timely responses
  • Consistent branding

I’ve put customer satisfaction first, because, let’s face it, without your customers/clients, you don’t have a business that requires the other items on the list.  Customer satisfaction is often thought of as a “front office” issue – for instance, the way your front office staff interacts with clients or the way your sales people approach customers.  While these are important, your back office issues may be even more important.

E-Forms:  How Businesses Stop Paper at Its Source

Posted by Molly McGowan on Mar 17, 2016 5:55:55 PM

E-Forms:  How Businesses Stop Paper at Its Source

As a process improvement expert, one of the areas I’m interested in is the number of paper forms that are used by, and that come into organizations. From membership forms to order forms, tax-exempt forms to registration forms.  How many paper forms does your company use and/or receive every day? 

The cost of paper forms can quickly pile up and both businesses and their customers feel the pain.

Electronic forms, also known as E-forms can improve the situation, while cutting costs, and reducing the use of paper.  Companies who stop paper at its source see big increases in efficiency, control and bottom line improvement.
