Relying on Docs and Spreadsheets to Capture Critical Processes?
Documents and spreadsheets were not designed for managing critical processes. They don’t provide an easy way to improve your processes, and they don’t provide any engagement metrics.
See why below….
Documents vs Flowster
When relying on documents and spreadsheets, there is no way to avoid the chaos that is the result of multiple versions and multiple folders.
Flowster makes it easy to keep all your workflow templates up to date and organized.
Imagine that you needed to update a critical paragraph about regulatory compliance within hundreds of documents. How to you find all these docs, much less update them all manually?
With Flowster, pushing out updates to all your workflows is as easy as a single click of your mouse. As soon as you update the template, Flowster will auto-update every related workflow for you.
After you’ve invested countless hours building your procedures in documents, all you have is a static document that can only be read. It is impossible to run a workflow, give it a due date, and assign it to one or many people on your team.
With Flowster, every time you want your team to do work, all you need to do is run the respective workflow, assign it to the right people, and give it a due date.
If you are publishing your processes in ‘read-only’ documents (PDFs, printed documents, etc.), the person reading the document may have a great idea for improving the process. Trouble is, they have no way to interact with the process, so the idea is lost.
Flowster allows users to ask questions and suggest changes right within the workflow; thereby making it easy for this suggestions to be reviewed and implemented.
Documents don’t allow you to easily embed videos – leaving the reader and writer to rely on only static words and pictures.
Short videos make it fast and easy to explain things that might be confusing if the explanation has to rely on words and pictures alone.
If you aren’t running workflows, you can’t collect data on who is doing what, if they are behind schedule, etc… You can’t improve what you aren’t measuring.
With Flowster, you can easily see the status of all your workflows. Need to see who is behind schedule, over-resourced, or skipping steps? Flowster makes it easy.
Critical process documents often need editing and updates. With spreadsheets and docs, anyone who can input information can tamper with your valuable content.
Flowster’s permission features ensure that only certain people can edit a workflow template.
If you are relying on documents and spreadsheets and you need timely reminders to run your critical processes (monthly account review, employee review, KPI review, etc…), you will need to use a separate application to send you these reminders.
Flowster’s recurring workflow feature ensures you never miss a beat.
