Efficient and secure online workflow software, like Kontinuum, offers the following:

  • Complex Password Mode: This allows Administrators to switch the level of complexity of a user’s password with ease.
  • Added security: Koninuum offers additional security by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certification.
  • Integration: Kontinuum integrates with Active Directory, meaning that users only have to remember one password.

Why use Workflow Software?

Online Workflow Software Speeds up Processes

Online Workflow Software Speeds up Processes

Here are just some of the ways that workflow software can benefit your business:

Improved efficiency: You can eliminate unnecessary steps by automating your processes.

Greater process control: Workflow management is improved by streamlining working methods and  the availability of audit trail.
Better customer service: Customers get dealt with in a consistent and efficient way – no more complaints getting “lost in the system”.

Adaptibility: Workflow software, particularly online software, allows the flexibility needed for changing business need.
Improved business processes: Simplified and streamlined processes that are visible in real time (web based workflow software) will save you time and money.

A small, initial outlay spent on workflow software will generate extra free time, allowing you to concentrate on what is really important – growing your business.


Work satisfaction and workflow

August 26, 2009

All jobs require some form of administration. Reports, spreadsheets and sales charts are just some of the papers required in most businesses.

Businesses need administration procedures to maintain order within a company. Forms need to be filled out, records must be kept, and documents must be filed.

Often, though, it is the paperwork that annoys employees and takes them away from doing their job. If employees are constantly bogged down with mundane tasks, they don’t have time to pursue the more interesting aspects of their jobs. This leads to frustration and their job satisfaction levels decrease. As their overall satisfaction levels decrease, they are less likely to give their company their best – and are more likely to become a “place holder” in the organisation.

If employees have automated processes in place, where their administration was easily captured, and they could see the whole picture of their contributions, they are more likely to be positive about their roles.

Web based workflow software can provide an online, real time snapshot of a company’s processes. If employees understand where they fit – and how important their little bit is – they will feel appreciated and know how much they contribute.


Leadership and Workflow Management

Workflow Management and Leadership

Workflow Management and Leadership

Managing processes while leading people is a consistent challenge. Although you cannot automate the human side of leadership, you can automate your processes.

Efficient processes are  the key to delivering consistent results. Good processes ensure better customer service, higher financial returns and successful leadership.

Figure out what your ultimate end result should be.

Although this may seem obvious, a detailed focus on the process often takes over. Keep your eye on the goal.

Break it down

If things aren’t working, or workflows are interrupted, an in-depth analysis will show that this is often because some of the smaller stages or goals are missing or incomplete. Define all goals leading to your desired outcome.

Break down your workflow

Who does what? When do they do it? What order do they do it in? Break down the goals into smaller stages. Work out  how much each step costs and how long it takes.

Watch it

Put steps in place to find bottlenecks before they become a problem. Automating your processes will make your life easier and leave you free to continue with the most important part of your job – leading your team!

Improve your workflow management and improve your leadership capabilities by using workflow software. An online workflow solution means that you can analyse processes in real time and immediately fix issues, before they turn into a negative experience for your staff and customers.
