Any organization, no matter what the size, large or small, there is always a wide variety of workflow involved. Whether it is the recruitment process, getting the employees on-board and familiarizing them with the processes, purchase or invoicing processes, payroll activities, employee exit processes and so on. Every process involves multiple people providing information or approvals at different stages of the workflow. Even various departments involved like marketing, project management, operations management, account management, sales team; they all need to collaborate with each other for the organization to make concrete decisions and eventually run smoothly.
In the initial stages, the processes can be fairly simple without involving much complications and can be completed in a few steps hassle-free. Spreadsheets and emails are more than enough to manage all these processes efficiently. But as and when the organization grows, the processes evolve and there is a need for a sophisticated tool that addresses the specific needs of a business and yet at the same time is as user-friendly as it gets.
Checkbox is one such brand that has established itself in this particular arena. Especially in a world where the world is becoming all the more digital and hence innovation has increasingly become the need of the hour. It is a far-fetched aim to rely only on people who can code or for that matter expect everyone to learn coding. Checkbox has successfully bridged the gap by enabling the power of digital creation for the masses. The workflow automation seems rather simple with the Checkbox touch. First and foremost it completely eliminated the tedious manual processes by building Workflow Automation solutions like scheduled tasks, approvals, reminders and so on. What’s more, one can easily create parallel workflows and automatically assign different workflows to multiple users.
The popularity of workflow automation by Checkbox has found favour among various industries such as:
