Workflow has been on my mind a lot in recent months. In order to remain current and successful in this industry I need to step it up a bit and be looking for additional workflow opportunities.
What is workflow? It's my guess that we'll see many different definitions of workflow from the different guest bloggers I have lined up. For me, workflow means that I can shorten a manual business process, which would then save the client hours of labor. In addition, the client may benefit from improved customer service to their customers.
For one of my clients it was the ability to scan documents, and extract data in a certain area of the form and then move that data so that it would populate in SharePoint list. Previously the client was scanning the documents in order to save them to a folder and then manually extracting the data from that form and then keying that data into an excel spreadsheet. The time savings by creating this new workflow was tremendous.
During the next 30 days, I'll be reaching out to some of my contacts and ask to them to provide us with a guest blog about workflow. As of right know there will be a five part series for Workflow.
Stay tuned, I'm thinking we'll enjoy these immensely. Blogs will posted for 24 hours for FREE and will then convert to Premium/VIP Blogs, please let me know if you are interested in obtaining a Premium/VIP Membership. firstname.lastname@example.org
"A workflow consists of an orchestrated and repeatable pattern of business activity enabled by the systematic organization of resources into processes that transform materials, provide services, or process information. It can be depicted as a sequence of operations, declared as work of a person or group, an organization of staff, or one or more simple or complex mechanisms."
