What is Workflow?
Workflow is the movement of documents and tasks through a work process. Commonly, workflow includes documents that need to be routed through a task or process because documents are the channel by which information moves through your organization. Without documents, your information flow would stop.
To increase operational efficiency through workflow optimization, businesses need to move consecutive processes to simultaneous processes. Building a process that will require former consecutive steps to occur at the same time is a simple and effective way to improve most business processes.
Another way to increase operational efficiency through workflow optimization is to automate manual processes. Not all manual processes can be automated and many automated processes will still require manual intervention. However, something as simple as automating the routing of documents after a manual step can reduce document processing time, thus increasing workflow efficiency. The increase in workflow efficiency can often directly influence higher profits as labor costs are reduced.
