Manual tasks steal time from the workday, cause delays, and introduce errors to your business processes. They also cost you money. Automating these tasks can create predictability and improve ROI by controlling the workflows. Take for example, the mailroom – an entry point to your company that is often a bottleneck and a hinderance to efficiency. Legacy mailroom operations can be improved by upgrading to a modern digital process. The Digital Mailroom offers the productivity benefits of digitalization and automation, less risk, and the results are better financials.
The Legacy Mailroom is a Dinosaur
Entrepreneur.com notes, “One of the best places for an organization to jumpstart its digital transformation is the mailroom — the main point of entry for documents. On-premise mailrooms are slow, error prone. They require too much labor and valuable real estate — not to mention they simply cannot support today’s ‘new world of work’.”
The solution is to move to a modern version of the mailroom that is more secure and efficient.
How the Digital Mailroom Automates Workflows
The Digital Mailroom is not a futuristic vision. It is here now and offers a streamlined system that upgrades manual handling and sorting of mail to a new level. Using sophisticated scanning technology and OCR software, the digital mailroom autom
atically scans mail, applies selected processing rules, and then sorts and routes the mail to the appropriate recipients. Simultaneously, critical processing data is automatically merged into other business workflows and systems, such as your ERP system.
The Digital Mailroom digitizes the secure delivery of mail, resulting in a game changing impact across the entire organization. The key benefits include faster and more reliable access; improved security; better data for measuring/predicting business continuity; lower operational costs; and improved customer service. Your staff will discover work that is more productive, valuable, and rewarding.
