digitize paper documents and forward faxes and electronic files to DocumentMall
IKON Professional Services provides content management solutions such as DocumentMall that automate manual business processes. Manual processes create competitive disadvantages. These processes need to be identified, analysed and re-engineered. For instance, let’s take a look at a manual accounts payable process – • Typically, invoices arrive in a mail room, waiting to be sorted. • At the next mail run, maybe that afternoon, or the next day, the mail is delivered. • If the recipient is busy or away, he or she may not actually examine the mail until the next business day. After waiting in a queue, it is opened and read. • If it requires another level of approval, it may have to go through the same manual process a few more times before any action can be taken. • Staff typically have to search for back up documents, or call suppliers when they need information. • Also, with a manual system, only one person can access a file at a time, unless multiple physical copies are made. • Manual processes are prone to time delays, errors, lost documents, and dissatisfaction – and they’re expensive as well. CLICK Now let’s look at an automated electronic accounts payable process. • Capturing, sharing and storing information electronically means it can be quickly pushed to the people, processes and devices that need it. • Images of invoices are stored electronically. • Information is available from remote locations even when in use by others (in case you want to check purchasing or proof-of-delivery files). • And system administration features allow processes to be measured and improved. This example clearly shows how IKON efficiency solutions: • Digitize information so it can be stored electronically and shared instantly with anyone, anywhere • Eliminate hard costs of manual document management (space, couriers, lost documents, filing costs, redeploy FTEs) • Speed workflows to save time and money And when applied to additional areas of a business added benefits emerge, such as: • Increased customer satisfaction due to faster response (inquiries can be answered instantly, while customers are on the phone) • Increased revenue from reduced cycle times, (such as faster time to market) • The security of knowing your information can be backed up to avoid catastrophic loss (Disaster Recovery)
