Today’s strategies in driving operational cost out of most business processes begins with exploring opportunities to automate and create self service frontend data entry applications. When you think about the ways in which commerce is transacted over the web, including making a reservation, requesting information, or an online purchase, the user is presented with a form which they enter required data and submit it. Paper documents are no longer part of this process and subsequently most of the operational costs associated with processing forms can be eliminated.
Manual based paper forms used today in organizations are expensive, difficult to distribute, and drive up operational costs to manage and file them. Integrated content management solutions like FileBound provide a framework for the automation of these processes. The FileBound Electronic Forms System allows you to create and store a library of on-demand forms to automate the creation, distribution, and filing of transactional forms. These forms can be configured as Microsoft Word, HTML, or Excel documents and made available within the FileBound system or posted on an outward facing web site or portals.
Completed forms are posted directly into the FileBound system for secure storage and retrieval when needed. Also, forms posted into FileBound automatically initiate a workflow process to route those forms to users based on configured business rules. The data entered on the forms can be extracted to feed other systems or databases, and can be used to create custom reports.
The FileBound Enterprise Document Management Solution E-forms module extends the functionality of the system and when coupled with the automated workflow can be used to create highly efficient Business Process Automation solutions.
