Details of Document Management
NWIA’s follow these steps for each document management project:
In this initial step, we assess your existing processes. We develop workflow charts that show:
- Where a document originates
- Where that document ends up
- Every decision point in the document’s lifecycle
Through the process base-lining step, you can gain insight into your current and potential processes.
After our baseline assessment, we analyze your specific processes. With this step, we uncover:
- Duplicate processes
- Processes that have become unnecessary
- Potential options for easing workflow and increasing productivity
Once we analyze your processes, we use that information to take stock of your processes overall. We deliver a report that focuses on how much time you spend on:
- Preparing files
- Creating files
- Creating folders
- File management
- Manual routing
- Manual storing
- Manual file retrieval
You can then use these measurements to determine the cost benefits of process improvement. You can develop specific, verifiable metrics for figuring out your expected ROI.
Next, NWIA performs a feasibility analysis that covers:
- Software options
- Hardware alternatives
- Platform options
- A review of the metrics included in the benefit summary
- An outline of benefits and costs relating to your ROI
This analysis helps you accurately evaluate the results of implementing a new system.
We use all of the documents prepared in the steps described above to design systems for your business. Our experts work alongside vendor partners and help you identify needed changes (both technological and non-technological).
NWIA document technology-based changes in the system design document, including:
- New workflows
- Application modules
- User interfaces
- Client-requested management reports
System design reporting includes all the information necessary for developing acceptance-testing criteria
