I've told this story a hundred times. Heck, I may have even written about it a time or two. You see, long ago, when the MpS ecosystem was young, wild and free, I had this client who engaged with us for a 36-month MpS project. The client realized how equipment-heavy it had become and was convinced we could reduce the overall number of devices from 1,100.

Whenever there’s a paradigm shift in the fundamental way people access, use, share or create content – for everything from technology to entertainment to education – it’s always a really good idea to take a look at what the leaders are up to. That’s especially true today with workflow and business process optimization.

Mobile devices and the use of cloud collaboration services are growing rapidly. This is true when it comes to sharing information among business partners, customers and even internal users. It’s very easy to drag files on a PC into a folder and access them from a smartphone, tablet or another computer. It’s also easy to sync information among multiple devices quickly. I love that I can save something on my iPad and have it available almost immediately on my laptop or a partner’s device.

In today’s converging world, we are all increasingly using technology in our workflow. Gartner Inc. recently projected that by 2020, 30 billion devices will be online 100 percent of the time and another 200 billion will connect intermittently. This increased use of technology allows users to easily access information anywhere electronically. Dealers have the opportunity to provide this accessibility to their customers. Many of us have looked toward document management solutions (DMS) to resolve our technology needs and increase our efficiency in the workplace.

Although the word itself was not often used, one of the main focal points of Hewlett-Packard’s Discover conference in Las Vegas last week (June 10-13) was workflow. And HP considers itself well positioned for the transition most offices are beginning to make (if not already entrenched in) from paper to electronic document management.

While document scanning and document management technologies and services successfully eliminate paper problems, it’s workflow automation that generates the greatest return on investment because this is where business processes are truly streamlined.

One of the first articles I ever wrote was about implementing a managed print services program and the risks of ignoring corporate culture in the process. Back then, we were primarily concerned about the impact that reducing devices would have on the way people felt about their jobs. MpS engagements were new; they changed the way toner was ordered and revealed how the number and location of printers could be a shock to the system.

Workflow, according to some of the articles you’ll find on this website and other places, is the motion of content – from creation to management, delivery and storage. While it’s something we often talk about on an enterprise level, it’s something that any of us who work with content on a regular basis incorporate. And after reading a number of these articles, I began thinking about my own personal workflow.

We've been traveling the imaging ecosystem together for some time now. What started back in 2008 as a basement hobby is now a bona fide endeavor. Together, we've seen all types of managed print services players: professionals, posers, teachers, and cool-aide drinkers. Over the past five years we've lived through the greatest technological shift in history, watching our technology titans try to steady themselves on foundations of sand, shedding the chafe and the devoted as they fell.

As someone who has worked in IT-related jobs his entire career, the term “workflow” is certainly not one that befuddles me or defies my understanding. Just the opposite, in fact. But that may not be the case for everyone.
