Unlocking the true value of digital transformation

Digital disruption is everywhere today, rapidly changing how we both live and work. Simply put, technology is becoming an inescapable aspect of the modern world.

How do you keep your organizations’ business processes current in the age of technological disruption? You can buck the trend and take the risk, or you embrace digital transformation and reap the benefits.

In a nutshell, digital transformation is the integration of technology into all areas of the business, making changes to how your business operates and to how you deliver value to your customers.

It is a continuous process, that can significantly shape a business and its operations. And when done well, it will result in a resilient business that is harmoniously aligned with its customer’s needs.

Businesses that are prioritizing digital transformation deliver more than just products or services. They deliver experiences.

Digitizing the outdated form

Whether you’re trying to acquire, onboard, or provide a service to customers, the gathering of information is a necessary process which often requires asking them to fill out a form (or five).

Customers today are demanding an experience that is seamless, smooth, and engaging. Perhaps one of the biggest challenges in delivering this kind of experience is burdening customers by asking them to repeatedly provide data.

While many organizations have moved the form-filling process online, it is still a task that customers detest. It’s dull, tedious, slow, and often requires them to input the same information repeatedly.

How can we overcome this problem? Enter the next-generation form.

More personalization

The ability to provide digitally savvy customers with personalized experiences is key to customer engagement. From banking to retail, customers want businesses to anticipate their needs and offer just what they’re looking for with ease and convenience.

Traditional, static forms lack any kind of personalization. In fact, they seem tedious to a point that customers often consider abandoning the form altogether, leading you to lose the opportunity to do business together.

Next-generation forms, on the other hand, are more like digital conversations – or “adaptive interviews” which create an engaging experience. They present customers with questions based on known data and new responses, eliminating several headaches.

More insights

Outdated static paper, web and PDF documentation reduces the ability to derive valuable insights from data, limiting this solely to data re-keyed into business systems.

With next-generation forms, you can truly liberate neglected data, using it to improve and empower your operations. You can analyse your forms performance, test questions, and optimize in order to improve completion rates.

Having the ability to report across the entirety of your digital documents and forms allows you to pinpoint even the subtlest of trends which would otherwise have forever laid stagnant in the filing cabinet.

If you aren’t analyzing your data, you could be missing a valuable chance to improve performance.

More connected

Digitally transforming your forms brings businesses huge benefits in terms of customer satisfaction and form completion rates. But perhaps the real value lies with the ability to integrate next-gen forms with key systems you already have.

From your customer relationship management (CRM) solution in which you can pull in new information from forms, to enterprise content management (ECM) where you can archive documents and forms automatically; with true connectivity you can improve productivity and efficiency.

Now that we’ve covered some examples of how digitally transforming your document management process can unlock true business value, let’s take a look at some of the leading solutions in this space.
