e-Workflow Best Practices for CIOs & CTOs: An 8-Part Series

Every day, your business or organization uses workflow to handle tasks and processes. Even if you do not consciously think about every workflow, each step you take as part of your duties is also a part of a workflow. 

Many steps and processes are performed manually when they could be automated. This represents a loss of time and productivity. With an e-workflow platform, processes and tasks can be automated, managed, and monitored in a secure, streamlined way.
