Examples of Document-intensive Process Problems Merkur Group Solutions Solve 
  • No centralized management, routing, visibility, and storage of incoming and outgoing documents and transactions.

  • Manual outbound faxing and emailing of documents such as purchase orders invoices, and statements is inefficient and time consuming. 

  • Manual routing, storage, and data entry of received fax documents and scanned documents are inefficient, time consuming, and prone to errors. 

  • Manual processing and responding to supplier and customer communications via fax, email, and Web forms, is inefficient and time consuming. 

  • Using pre-printed forms or using raw, unprofessional documents generated by business applications is inefficient and does not project a good company image. 

  • Not knowing if a document you sent via mail, fax, or email was received and processed by the intended recipient causes order delays and delayed payments.  

  • Not taking advantage of the Internet for fast, secure business communications is costing your company millions.
