Let's face it. Focusing in on specific business challenges can be daunting, especially in today's hectic work environment. It can be downright overwhelming sometimes - what do you address and when? How do I deal with shifting management objectives? What should our top priorities be? Where can the most impact be made?
If we are honest, most of us know where the problems lie in our businesses when it comes to process operating efficiency. Depending on where we work and what our responsibilities are, you cannot help but see areas where the use of automation technologies would make a significant improvement.
One of the interesting trends we see with customers using Oracle WebCenter Imaging solutions is that once they have identified and resolved particular process bottlenecks with our technology, they then find themselves in the welcome position of being able to address other process challenges using the same technology. For example, one customer initially bought WebCenter Imaging to eliminate the reliance on paper in their Accounts Payable invoicing process with E-Business Suite. But then they realized they could use the same automation, recognition and routing technologies to optimize Accounts Receivable and General Ledger processes. Then the HR department saw that they could use the same technology to improve employee on-boarding and personnel document routing.
It's an unwritten law that business priorities will change. The new boss will see things differently. Mandates from the executive team will drive new business projects. But as we have seen from other customers, there is comfort in knowing that the technology you purchase to drive down costs and improve business efficiency in one area can be used to help out with new businesses priorities when they inevitably arise.
Which leads us to our plug for the day. WebCenter Imaging is designed to help you focus in on business process challenges in a way that is flexible and can adjust to meet your particular priorities - even when they change. We encourage you to learn more and we are here to help you understand how our technology can be of value to you and your business. Find your first business challenge, address it and then be ready to move on to the next one.
