There are so many vital tasks a business owner must complete successfully to remain relevant and grow in this ever-changing business world. From deciding how to grow your customer base to creating unique marketing and branding efforts, managing employees, establishing new business partnerships, and of course, planning for the future of your company, business owners can quickly become overwhelmed and stretched for the proper amount of time needed to complete all these tasks adequately.
Knowing that your time and your employee’s time should be used wisely, the question is: Should more time be spent on high-value activities that can support the company’s growth and less on administrative work? The answer is simpler than you might think.
In the past, check writing and check printing processes have been largely manual. Using manual check writing and check printing processes results in numerous amounts of employee time being consumed. And the results can be, at times, less than ideal when considering human transaction errors. Considering the cost of labor, amount of human errors and employee time consumption, it is logical to wonder if your check writing and check printing process is as productive as it should be. The simple answer is probably not.
As with many business processes, check writing and check printing internal business tasks should be outsourced simply based on the cost-savings and increase in employee productivity. For example, paper invoicing, which is still actively used today, relies on printing, stuffing, and adding postage to envelopes. It also includes reconciling bills, issuing bills and sorting through files to accomplish this. Adding all these efforts together can drag an accounts receivable process into long windows of time and even over-time expenses all in the name of processing check writing and check printing needs in-house. If you have not considered outsourcing your check printing and check writing process at this point, you should. There is no reason not to increase your business productivity and gain cost-savings at the same time by outsourcing your check writing and check printing needs.
Business process automation offers a built-in oversight feature that will increase employee accountability. With business process automation, executive management can monitor what is happening throughout the business process and determine if any issues exist without asking employees and interrupting workflow progress. The result encourages employee efficiency and accountability, while providing a more effective process completion result.
When considering implementing business process automation, it is important to consider what roles are involved, who the process effects, and how the process is currently completed. Once you have a clear picture of how the process beings and ends, what the deliverables are, and who plays a part in that process, automating the process is as simple as pie. Automating workflows also automates communication.
