Cloud workflow software is rapidly becoming a widely effective staple for improved productivity. While many may assume these types of platforms are just fancy online calendars that have taken the place of the planners and organizers professionals once lived by, there’s actually a bit more to consider before looking the other way. 

Imagine having a detailed checklist to break down each task and subtask required to complete every assignment. Day-to-day operations would likely flow a bit smoother, right? Well, standard operating procedures (SOPs) do just that!
