  • Cloud-based solution
  • Supports any document
  • Data validation
  • Easily manage line details

Cloud-based solution

Cloud-based solutions emerged as the top priority among respondents, with 50% highlighting its importance. It offers several advantages, including accessibility from any location, real-time collaboration, and scalability. These solutions enable employees to create and manage documents from anywhere, using any device with internet connectivity. This flexibility is particularly valuable in today’s hybrid work environment, where team members may be dispersed across different locations. Additionally, cloud-based solutions provide scalable resources, allowing businesses to easily adjust their capacity based on demand without the need for significant upfront investments in infrastructure. Robust security measures in cloud solutions also ensure that sensitive data is protected, and compliance requirements are met.

This capability enhances efficiency, reduces errors, and streamlines the document creation process across different departments and functions within the business.

Data validation

25% of respondents also highlighted data validation as an important feature of document creation workflow solutions. Data validation ensures that all documents created within the workflow comply with predefined standards and business rules. This feature is essential for preventing errors, reducing discrepancies, and maintaining data integrity throughout the document creation process. Data validation tools automatically check the accuracy and completeness of documents, flagging any issues for correction before they impact the workflow. By ensuring data accuracy and compliance, organisations can avoid costly mistakes and maintain smooth, efficient operations.

Easily manage line details

While the ability to easily manage line details did not receive any votes in our poll, it is important to consider it as one of the factors affecting document creation workflows. Managing line details involves handling specific data points or items within a document, such as line items in an invoice or individual clauses in a contract. While the ability to easily manage line details was not a top priority, it remains a useful feature for specific applications.
