As we rebound from the pandemic, we all want to rise in unison to a better tomorrow. All along as we had stepped on a back foot, technology had still kept us connected. Even in this narrow path to recovery, it is the technology that seems to be the Noah’s Arc for us. Of the many avtaars that technology dawns, cloud-based practices offer that much desired scalability and productivity to boost the anytime anywhere business paradigm. A cloud-based Digital Workplace solution powered by Enterprise Content Management (ECM), configurable workflows, business rules, Intelligent Data Capture, robotics (RPA), and Artificial Intelligence / Machine Learning (AI/ML) seems to be the need of the hour.
What is the Digital Workplace solution?
Digital Workplace is your eoffice away from office. It supports remote operations and work from home in a secure enterprise framework. The solution strategically uses intelligent data capture, ECM, and digital workflow to capture, store, and move office documents and files in a safe environment.
The Digital Workplace solution is much more than a collaboration platform. It is your paperless digital office. The solution accelerates the pace of regular office transactions in an exponential manner. It even outs the bottlenecks encountered in the approval process and eliminates loss of documents.
For example: A user raises the requisition through his reporting-to officer along with requisite documents and quotations without any loss of documents or approval bottlenecks and procures the required assets within two days as against weeks earlier.
The solution can be easily integrated with your enterprise email and synchronized with your email contacts as well as your enterprise messaging systems. It can be implemented through all the enterprise horizontals and verticals.
The Digital Workplace imparts the much needed digital dexterity to an enterprise and can be extended beyond to enable adaptive learning platforms, and much more, through systematic design thinking. The cloud-paradigm eliminates the need for colocation and enables you to move towards one global office.
The solution with multi-factor authentication and digital signatures has the capability to immensely improve process visibility and individual accountability. It also improves the cycle time and productivity at the same time.
