Effectively capturing and managing documents and content is necessary to move an organization forward. But intelligently incorporating this incredible amount of information into the flow of business also is required to truly transform processes — making them more automated, accurate and agile.
Workflow software unlocks the full potential of an ECM system, distributing information anywhere it’s needed across an organization. Sophisticated products also automate processing steps, simplify work tasks and provide real-time monitoring to advance any document-based business routine.
Optimized workflow eliminates the common obstacles that get in the way of sustained efficiency:
- Manual, paper-based business processes are stifling productivity
- Large amounts of information are untapped or being used inefficiently
- Existing workflow is inflexible and changes are extremely difficult, costly
Driven by efficiency. Created to solve problems.
Perceptive Software workflow products energize existing routines, improving productivity and speeding document processing time. Benefits materialize quickly as documents and other business content is directed automatically to the right place at the right time — so staff always have relevant information at their fingertips in ImageNow or WebNow without having to search for it.
Flexible routing options put an organization in complete control of where and how captured information is delivered. ImageNow Workflow can direct documents to work queues based on linear and parallel process steps; business conditions; specific data inside the documents, eForms or databases; and a number of other methods that support virtually any process.
Additional functions make it easy to monitor the status of items as they progress through workflow using customizable, real-time notifications. And ImageNow Tasks further simplifies processes through task-driven to-do lists that prioritize work and establish deadlines.
