As Covid-19 restrictions are gradually being lifted many businesses across the country are facing the task of preparing the workplace for the return of their workforce. Through their Return To Work Safely Protocol, the Irish Government has laid out a range of conditions that companies must satisfy before they can be deemed safe to return to operations.
The impact innovative technology has had on the business world has been immense. It’s not just been in customer services and manufacturing; it’s also made traditionally laborious areas, like accounting processes, more efficient making the tasks of AP departments that bit easier to undertake.
These days, remote work is more a necessity than a preference. Even if offices are closed or manned by a skeleton staff, the work still has to be done. With so many people working from home, businesses face different challenges but, even in the coronavirus crisis, Document Management doesn’t need to be affected.
It’s already widely accepted that paper-based processing procedures are too slow, too labour intensive and ultimately too costly. The modern business world demands greater efficiency in every department – and there are no signs of this trend relenting. So, making 2020 the year of the paperless Accounts Payable department could be the most critical investment your business makes.
In the midst of the COVID-19 global pandemic, businesses have been forced to face challenges that would not normally have appeared as key challenges. One such area is Control and Visibility, with procedures now largely being operated through remote working. But through AP Automation, these are elements that are already greatly enhanced.
Today’s working office is a place where technological and traditional methods are expected to work in harmony. Yet, some remain satisfied with paper documents in a filing cabinet. But the twin obligations of document management and data protection has made Cloud storage a necessity rather than a luxury.
With the ongoing COVID-19 lockdown restricting travel to work as well as everywhere else, the requirement on businesses to have employees work from home places pressure on productivity. It is especially true for Accounts Payable departments, but AP Automation offers Cloud-based solutions in these strange times.
Through the decades, technology has provided a major boon to businesses and how they operate. From photocopiers to management apps, each generation has helped to fine-tune business processes. But digitally capturing your documents – Document Digitisation – remains much more than just a neat tech trick. Here are 8 of the main benefits of digitally capturing documents and data can offer when complementing your business process.
Expanding your business is an understandable ambition, but there is a consequential challenge to keep things running smoothly. Documentation builds up, processes come under pressure and project teams can feel the strain. Effective collaboration is the secret to overcoming such challenges, and AP Automation the key that boosts it.
