This article introduces the topic of workflow automation and is based on a Ricoh eBook which explores the issues surrounding workflow automation.
Workflow Automation is a key way to reduce costs and provide improved services.
If your workflows are inefficient then processes take longer. In addition, optimising workflows is a crucial part of the process of adopting new technologies.
Are you approaching Workflow Automation the wrong way?
Think about your organisation and its employees. How many tedious functions and tasks still require you to be physically involved or present? Submitting invoices? Shuffling through folders? Perpetually bugging your manager to finally approve an expense? These types of time wasters are a real problem that often go unaddressed.
Is Your Efficiency Sluggish?
- More than 70% of today’s businesses would fail within three weeks if they suffered a catastrophic loss of paper records due to fire or flood.
- The digital universe is doubling in size every two years, and by 2020 the data we create and copy annually will also grow by 10 times – reaching 44 zettabytes, or 44 trillion gigabytes. This compounds the stress for organisations when deciding what they need to do.
Capital Document Solutions can help you automate virtually any business process within your organisation.

Workflow analytics will be the next investment
Analytics have always played a role in document solutions, particularly in the area of print management. However, as the amount of data on connected devices increases, and as the tools to manage this data mature, the opportunity exists to further leverage big data to improve security, optimise print and document workflows, strengthen customer service, and even pre-emptively address service events.
As a result, the ability of Capital to integrate analytics with device management, Print Management Software, and Enterprise Content Management offers clients more intelligent systems that will have success across many vertical markets.
