Managing Your New Hybrid Workplace
We’re 15 months into this pandemic and most everything is on its way to being somewhat normal. But how companies work, particularly, where employees work, has forever changed. Some could say it’s been a positive change that the pandemic fast-tracked as companies discovered how to survive with employees working remotely. What has emerged is a new style of working – the hybrid workplace.
According to a flexjobs article about remote work statistics, a Gartner survey of company leaders found that 80% plan to allow employees to work remotely at least part of the time after the pandemic, and 47% will allow employees to work from home full-time. In a PwC survey of 669 CEOs, 78% agree that remote collaboration is here to stay for the long-term.
Whether your company’s hybridity consists of employees working solely from either their home or office, or employees working flexibly from both each week, you need to have an infrastructure that allows everyone to be as efficient as possible from wherever they work.
The most fundamental step a company can take to make this a reality is by becoming a digital business, a necessity in today’s world. That’s where a solution like DocLink comes in.
DocLink’s document management and process automation capabilities allow companies to go paperless, but it’s not just a matter of digitizing and electronically storing documents, it’s having a system in place that allows you to:
- access the data you need instantaneously, from wherever you are
- reduce human errors by minimizing manual data entry, reconciliations and matching
- streamline and automate processes including invoices, expense reports, sales order processing, contracts, etc.
- improve visibility and reporting by monitoring workflow statuses and automated audit trails
You might be thinking, “it can’t be that simple.” But with DocLink it really can. DocLink becomes your digital repository, providing one place for all your documents to live. But DocLink does so much more, automating workflows and streamlining all your vital document processes in every department, from accounts payable to legal to sales order processing. DocLink offers limitless visibility and control, allowing you to access and manage all your documents, data, and processes effortlessly – from anywhere.
Most importantly, DocLink inherently provides the flexibility companies need to support their new hybrid workforce. Many of our customers have outright stated that they wouldn’t have made it through the pandemic without DocLink. For example:
Pinder’s Custom Brokerage – “If we had not designed and implemented DocLink to the extent we did, I don’t really know how we could’ve managed this crisis. Having everyone work remotely has been barely a blip on our workflow, we’ve been able to continue moving shipments through our business really easily.”
Damuth Trane – “It’s been pretty amazing, we haven’t had any bumps in the road, and haven’t missed a beat with DocLink. Everyone’s completing their workflows and expense reports are done as normal. There was really no difference for us. We’re just as efficient as ever.”
