Intranet Portal Mistake #6: Overlooking the importance of workflows

Business Process Intelligence (BPI) is commonly ranked the number-one priority for CIOs. What’s driving these changes? Improved productivity, reduced cost and accelerated processes, to name a few.

Companies everywhere are eager to turn time-consuming, paper-pushing tasks into streamlined, online processes that help to eliminate paper forms, file folders, manual forwarding and the inefficiencies associated with them.

Pick an Intranet product that supports workflows, and plan to offer a few streamlined workflows as part of your initial launch. Automating common processes like vacation requests, expense report reimbursements and purchase approvals will catch the user’s attention, and give them a vested interest in using the intranet.
