What is workflow automation?

Workflow automation is your missing link. With workflow automation software, you can empower your employees to improve the way they work. Automatically generate business-critical documents, assign tasks, and digitally sign, send, and store data and files across multiple systems. Tasks are simplified, processes accelerated, and unnecessary manual work is eliminated.

Streamline the processes at the core of your business

Workflow automation enables collaboration on an entirely new level. Work moves effortlessly from person-to-person, system-to-system, to the cloud and back – without bottlenecks or breakdowns. Transform paper-based, manual tasks into sophisticated digital processes that move your business forward.

Fewer repetitive tasks

Eliminate paperwork, accelerate digital transformation, and maximize productivity by automating almost any business process.

Automated document management

Quickly and easily create consistent, compliant, up-to-date digital documents. Automatically send files for redlining, approval, e-signature, and storage.

Real-time process analytics

Establish a culture of continuous process improvement by monitoring workflow performance and discovering data-driven, actionable insights.
