Measure Your Business Processes

This enables us to make appropriate business decisions based on facts and real-time data.

- Monitor your business processes in real-time without involving IT or database administrators. This will allow managers to make timely decisions, eliminate bottlenecks and receive notifications, if thresholds or metrics are not being met.
- Manage and measure from anywhere. You will have the ability to access and analyze business processes via mobile devices or a workstation.
- Audit your business process. Is there a document missing or expired? Is there a task that needs finalized to complete an order? Receive notifications to keep your processes moving forward.
- Report via comprehensive reporting tools as well as charts and graphs to provide accurate data, metrics, process status and outcomes without burdening IT for reports.
- Analyze the data in your own way. A quick overview is convenient, but sometimes a deeper analysis is required. OnBase by Hyland can export data to Excel for thorough analysis.
