Do you feel like your workflows are slow, unwieldy, and perhaps harming your company?  If so, you’re not alone. From delays on document approvals to hard-to-track expenses, many businesses struggle with effectively managing their documents and processes. A technology assessment may be the answer you’ve been looking for.

Technology Assessment

More than just a simple walkthrough, a technology assessment is an in-depth look at your infrastructure and workflows to determine which areas you should focus on to improve your business. When done thoroughly, it can guide you towards decreased expenses and increased productivity, allowing your business to grow.

A technology assessment should look at three distinct areas within your business:

  1. Workflows – Your processes may be slowing you down and hindering your business from operating at peak performance. Looking at these document and information-based processes is an important component of an assessment, and can help uncover ways to streamline and automate processes for increased productivity.
  2. Print – Printing and all that goes with it can be contributing to unnecessary costs and delays. A thorough assessment will take into consideration your devices, your print volume, and your costs to help optimize your print environment.
  3. Networks – Your company is only as secure as your network. A technology assessment will look at your network infrastructure and security to help identify problem areas.

Tips for a Successful Assessment

A technology assessment should be thorough, and there are a number of ways to help your assessment be more successful.

  • Management and stakeholders should be engaged in the assessment, and support the vendor providing the assessment.
  • Objectives should be clear and focused. Understanding your current state is only part of the puzzle – clear goals for your company are necessary as well.
  • The assessment should be done in context. Different industries will have different needs.
  • Make sure the necessary information is available to the vendor. This can include a list of assets, their costs, and performance data.
