Every process that a business performs involves a workflow: it is essentially the set of steps that are used to perform a given task. Workflows in many businesses, however, are composed of a series of manual tasks that can be time-consuming to complete, introduce the possibility of errors and are probably expensive in terms of man-hours spent.

Digital workflows take these manual steps and transfer them to the digital sphere where they are automated, where possible, and information about them is stored in digital form where it is easier to maintain and manage.

Some of the benefits of digitizing workflows include:

• Reducing paperwork
• Simplifying document management and storage
• Ensuring compliance at each stage of a workflow process
• Integration of data with accounting software
• Ability to implement smart payroll systems
• Enables easy collaboration with other employees
• Saves money by identifying bottlenecks and inefficient processes
