Workflow Automation for Multi-Step Business Processes
There is no denying the old cliché that “time is
money,” especially in the context of the multi-step business processes relied
upon by today’s financial institutions. How are you losing both time, and
money? Manual workflow processes slow your institution down, diverting
attention from members, increasing operating expenses, and creating unnecessary
opportunities for errors and compliance issues.
Workflow simplifies business processes by fully automating, streamlining, and
standardizing any procedures that involve multiple steps, individuals, groups,
departments, and systems. It supports virtually any process that is performed
with a series of consistent steps; automatically routing assignments based on
established credentials, permission levels, and availability, and strictly
enforcing established approval processes.
These business processes may include multiple JHA products (core, content management, and more) along with 3rd party applications to provide unmatched integration.jhaEnterprise Workflow facilitates business processes that spans various people and departments to ensure that all tasks are completed both timely and properly.

responsible for every part of the process. For each step in the process,
there is one person designated to perform a specific action. By doing this
you are creating a system of accountability, where everyone knows what specific
tasks they are responsible for. This also reveals which tasks take the most
time to complete and where the process seems to get held up the most
By implementing workflow
automation, everyone at your credit union knows who is responsible for each
task, and everyone is clear on their tasks and deadlines. Workflow automation also
enables you to make better future decisions to create more effective processes
and assign work accordingly. The most
effective way to implement a new workflow is to include the stakeholders who
are involved in that process during the design phase. This ensures that all touchpoints are
