Through efficient process management, organizations can achieve better performance, resulting in reduced operational costs. Whether automating a process in your day-to-day environment or supporting compliance and administration, the ability to design and automate processes in a simple way is not only powerful, but is now achievable! Transforming manual processes to automated workflows in areas such as shop-floor control, quality assurance, or customer requests can provide the answer to both visibility and process improvement. Both senior and middle management are constantly looking for ways to monitor and assess the effect of a business process change while that change is still relevant. This is a key element in achieving process improvement and better business results. In a focused web seminar held by Microsoft and its preferred partners, we will discuss the most common issues in manufacturing while demonstrating a solution to overcome some of the most up-to-date problems that the industry faces. During this web seminar, we will demonstrate solutions, share the experience of other companies in the industry, and answer any question that you may have.

You will discover:

  • Ways to achieve compliance and governance in manufacturing organizations while minimizing bureaucracy
  • A solution to constantly monitor and improve workflows and processes that are either mission critical
  • Ways to achieve process improvement while reducing cost
  • How to improve upon your company's manual processes that are labor intensive and/or paper based
