Naviant boosts productivity on its document conversion jobs by as much as 87 percent with the OPEX Falcon® document scanning workstation.
Automation is the key to a successful document workflow, and something that service bureaus must manage on a daily basis. With razor thin profit margins, business process outsourcing (BPO) organizations know all too well the importance that technology plays in developing a successful document management system and their ability to meet customer timelines and requirements.
Nearly every sizable organization on the planet has at least one customer relationship management (CRM) software system. Over the years, as these systems expand and mature, most organizations compile a wealth of customer data that can be segmented for automated, ongoing customer communications. Unfortunately, the primary form of communication is a steady stream of unsolicited emails which, over time, results in diminishing response rates and click-throughs, doing little to drive meaningful customer engagement.
A recent consumer magazine survey showed that over 25% of the general public has had cause for complaint about their interactions with a product or service provider in the last year, and 64% would be put off switching their business to a company that had a poor reputation for customer service. “How satisfied are you with the service you received?” is no longer the key question for customer satisfaction measures.

The healthcare industry’s ability to streamline meaningful use and Health Information Exchange (HIE) efforts are largely based on the level of interoperability between management systems. Organizations have long been tasked with improving the accessibility of data throughout complex multi-channel workflows without sacrificing security, accuracy, time or budgets. With this natural progression of the industry’s efforts, Intelligent Capture has provided a critical bridge in accessing data held within paper medical documentation and making it available within the daily digital workflow, easing interoperability efforts and helping to facilitate an electronic industry.
As much as credit cards and digital wallets have tried to take over, checks are still a very prevalent and practical way to make payments and financial transactions. However, just because consumers and businesses are still relying on traditional, paper-based financial transactions doesn't mean that technology can't streamline deposits and improve customer satisfaction.
