How Workflows Can Help Increase Your Organization’s Productivity

Workflows were a much talked about feature during the release of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 and rightfully so since they can revolutionize the way we  conduct our daily business.  Here are some of my favorite reasons why you should make the investment in applying workflows to your business practices:

  1. Streamline your business processes.  By doing so, you are able to create a process and stick to it.  It reduces the urge to circumvent the process which has been put in place and could throw off future steps therefore making it a more lengthy process in the end.
  2. Memory is unreliable.  These days where our inbox is constantly filling up with requests and where your office line and cell phone could ring simultaneously, there is a chance that a request can slip through the cracks.  With a workflow in place, you will now be able to receive automated reminders or status views of all outstanding requests, by doing this, you will have reminder or a double check if something passed you by the first time around.
  3. Eliminates bottlenecks.  By breaking down and automating the task process, everyone can treat their portions simultaneously therefore reducing the number of roadblocks within a particular task.
  4. Treating urgent issues.  Credit holds are a popular one, with a workflow you can see it and treat it right away, decreasing the issues where, in the past,  there would be lags if someone was out of the office and needed to approve something manually.
  5. Enforces accountability and compliance.  This allows you to better manage your information by protecting it and following processes put in place based on your role within your organization.

By creating workflows, you are extending your connections outside of your traditional Microsoft Dynamics GP user base; you can include more people in the process without slowing it down yet still contain the level of information needed to make informed decisions. These connections extend not only to approvals but also to sending Word and Excel documents thereby making it easier to do business; this is a great step in the right direction for Dynamics GP.
