Never underestimate the power of a strong, streamlined workflow. If you can find and eliminate inefficiencies, reduce overspending, and solve other common but tricky problems, then you're well on your way to happy customers, happy employees, and a happy bottom line--but how can you get there? Here are a few simple tips to help streamline your workflows!
There are all kinds of ways to "workshop" your workflows and find effective, efficient solutions--like managed print services. By helping you put your focus where it matters--for example, on enhancing security--managed print helps you take what you love about your workflows and enhance it, all while helping you wherever you're struggling. At the end of the day, no matter what solutions you choose, remember that your workflows need to be efficient for you rather than everyone else, so don't let "cookie cutter" answers be good enough. Instead, take what you learn from other places and companies and tailor it to work for your unique needs!
Ready to get started? Here are a few simple tips to help streamline your workflows!
- #1: Write it out.
Sit down and write out (or sketch out, or talk out) your workflows step-by-step. Follow a document through its entire life-cycle or list the tasks necessary to make communication possible. This can help you spot inefficiencies and reduce little problems.
- #2: Identify your pain points.
Where do your workflows continue to disappoint you? Are you overspending, or allowing documents to go unsigned and forgotten, or accidentally overlooking security risks? Take these problems and track them to their source, and then try coming up with solutions from there.
- #3: Go to the experts.
And by "experts," we mean the people who function within your workflows every day--your team! Ask them what they think can be improved and make sure they're properly trained on any solutions you implement.
