Top 4 Benefits of Automated Workflow Processes for Businesses

electronic document managementIt cannot be argued that one of the major changes in business all over the world in technology has been the automation of workflow processes. Compared with the traditional methods of paper based work flow process which are not only slow but can leave a lot of room for error, the automated workflow processes are efficient, quick and can streamline one’s business functions.
It is not difficult to have document scanning and such middleware with the multi-functions products in existing system architecture nowadays. It is worthwhile to note that the learning curve for such systems is short because of the employees who already have experience interaction with the multifunction devices. Thus, implementing workflow automation in the office can bring a number of benefits for the business. Here are the top four key benefits that companies can get:
1. Controlled Costs, Access and Result/Impact: Automated workflow process can control costs that the business incurs. It can be easy to switch to it which will allow the company to accomplish not only cost cutting goals, but also provide easy access and instant impact upfront.
2. Increased Security: traditional workflow methods are not as secure and therefore, installing a proper workflow to automate business will be able to offer a company a range of security tools ranging from document management system to network.
3. Streamline Business Cycles & Limit Cycles: Automated processes in a business mean that there is more error-free workflows which can streamline the entire office and spread the efficiency on board.
4. Improved Efficiency: the traditional methods are time consuming, take more effort and are inefficient as a result. Switching to automated workflows can reduce the amount of work needed to regulate the business processes and also cut down on time – which is a cost too. This can in turn allow the business to spend more time on other important things.
These benefits can impact any organization in the longer run, very positively.

Laserfiche Winners Circle

Sobrekk Business Technology Solutions
Reaches Winners Circle Status
GOLDEN VALLEY, MN (Solbrekk) – October 14, 2009 — Solbrekk announced today that the business technology solutions provider has reached Laserfiche “Winners Circle” status for the second time. This means that Solbrekk will be recognized in January 2010 at a special event for accomplished value-added resellers.
“This year, customers have been careful to select a reliable, cost-effective solution that creates efficiency, and adds value to their organization, “says Larry Phelps, Solbrekk’s vice president of sales. “Laserfiche has been a great fit because their enterprise content management software suite is open, easy to integrate, loaded with functionality and easy to use, reducing the complexities for IT staff and end-users, and frankly, this is exactly what our customers want.”
As a case in point, Phelps points to Solbrekk’s work for the Minneapolis Star Tribune, one of the largest newspapers in the United States. “It was a very challenging project,” Phelps explained that the company needed to replace a legacy imaging system and migrate massive databases from shared servers.
“As part of that task, Chad Brinkman, our senior network and integration engineer, deciphered their existing integrations and workflows and then implemented them in the new systems. All told, he integrated Laserfiche successfully with PeopleSoft®, RightFax® and Oracle® applications,” said Phelps. “These integrations will help the Star Tribune streamline key processes in accounts payable, human resources, travel and contracts. This project is a great example of how Laserfiche serves as a versatile and flexible foundation for enterprise solutions.”
Solbrekk’s other recent successes include Laserfiche deployments for I.C. System and the City of Shoreview, Minnesota. Looking ahead, Solbrekk plans to focus on delivering solutions to clients in the medical, local government and manufacturing fields, as well as developing enterprise-wide solutions for corporations of all sizes.
Based in Golden Valley, Minnesota, Solbrekk, Inc., was formed in 2003 to bring together the combined knowledge and experience of four complementary businesses that had each been in business for a dozen years or more. The group included Software Tailors, Inc., Phelps’ former company, which had been a Laserfiche VAR since 1995. With 20 certified network engineers on staff, Solbrekk has quickly become one of the largest computer service companies in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area. Larry Phelps and Chad Brinkman lead the company’s electronic document management solutions team.
