Cutting costs, improving efficiencies, adhering to compliancy regulations, and going green – that’s just a sampling of the myriad pressures affecting the modern business. In today’s climate, even simple tasks can become overly complicated, creating an undue amount of stress and confusion, wasting time and money in the process.
Everyone knows that businesses with well-connected resources function much more elegantly, but what’s the underlying secret to businesses that gracefully flow versus those that totally freak out?
KISS: Keep it simple, stupid.
In a world of complexities, simplicity is next to godliness. Businesses that get with the times and embrace the right technology can significantly reduce complexity and improve their ability to compete in the market.
On December 7, IBM announced the release of IBM Forms 4, a product that provides exquisite out-of-the-box functionality for businesses that want to reduce complexity with workflow tools and process automation, and create exceptional web experiences for their customers in the process.
This simple product offers a modern departure from an age-old task from which no one was exempt: filling out the paper-based form. The reasons for businesses to go electronic on this one are vast and compelling. As a customer, it provides a whole lot of freedom from the ball and chain of the paper-based, in-person process (I can never forget the first time I filled out a passport application online, and the happy dance I did when I found out I didn’t have to stand for hours in the paper-based application line-up). And, for businesses that are keen on getting on top of the pressures of modern times, the benefits are wide:
It also integrates easily with existing IT investments, is scalable, and boasts security features like military-grade digital signature. It’s also available in 28 languages.
At the end of the day, I’d like to think that life is meant to be pretty straightforward. Even though business can sometimes be tough, the tools we use should help take us to that happy place in which we can get things done with ease and simplicity.
In our day and age, electronic forms are pretty much a no-brainer for me. If you agree, you should definitely check out IBM Forms 4.
