Automate Processes to Drive Business Outcomes

One of the first tasks enterprises must do to improve business processes is identify and migrate workflows away from paper-based systems. Workflow and content automation (WCA) is a new enterprise software category for automating business workflows, document processes, and transactions.

WCA technologies automate workflows and produce intelligent documents with valuable data analytics that make businesses more productive. We help our clients choose WCA solutions that accelerate how quickly information flows between enterprises, people, and important business systems to accelerate process cycle times and increase accuracy.


What is workflow and content automation?
Crafting Your Content Automation Strategy

From Content Management to Content Automation

While many businesses have begun digitally transforming through digital transaction management (DTM), most have not yet taken the next step: workflow and content automation. We're leaving the content management era and entering the content automation era and today, the demand is to automate the entire content lifecycle.

By consolidating forms, workflow, and customer communication management (CCM) software, WCA can streamline document processes, improve operations, and accelerate time to revenue.
