The Key to Scalable Workflows Lies in the Underlying Workflow Platform & Process Documentation

Business app development platforms, such as HighGear's no-code workflow platform, empower business users to create and deploy an application within a day.

Optimizing Organizational Time through Automating Workflows

How does a team of 25 put 410 work days per year back into their team time budget? In an environment where even simple workflow automation has been carried out, team members will interact with workflow-driven tasks at least 10 times per day, and each interaction will save on average 3 minutes each interaction. 10 interactions x 3 minutes x 25 staff x 5 days = 63 hours per week x 52 weeks/8 hour working day = 410 work days Three minutes is not a lot of time in isolation, but when an employee...
