Introduction to WorkflowChapter 5: Preparing Outbound Faxes
- Analyze use cases of document-intensive workflows that need an automation tool
- Provide a solution for substantial volumes of critical faxes that can cause real strains and bottlenecks
Organizations that rely on document-intensive workflows need an automation tool that can securely send those critical documents while maintaining compliance with state and federal regulations. By adopting a document delivery workflow solution, your organization can ensure it can continue to drive automation and optimization of transmitted documents.
The Workflow Platform for RightFax has an extended feature set allowing embedded directives to perform more complex document assembly and “programmatic” post-processing instructions, rather than just simple and static document delivery. In other words, when delivering a batch of fax documents to multiple recipients, the contents of every document are different for each recipient, based on the embedded fields and commands within the document or meta data. Customers in healthcare, financial services and other document intensive businesses have used the Workflow Platform for RightFax to process tens of millions of outbound documents and faxes into complex workflows that require synchronization with multiple third-party systems.
With the Workflow Platform for RightFax, organization can utilize:
- Barcode generation, detection and parsing for reliable, accurate indexing of both 1D and 2D barcodes even under harsh receipt conditions, plus barcode stamping to add key identifying information to an outbound document; when the signed document is returned, the system already knows where it goes.
- Single/multi- page TIFF/PDF support and file separation to enable each document to be delivered to different locations in different formats according to business rules.
- Automatic overlay of dynamic data fields from multiple sources for both inbound and outbound documents.
- Intelligent “retries” to control subsequent attempts to send a fax document based on whether the line is busy, a human answers or the number is not valid.
The Workflow Platform for RightFax provides a combination of features, functionality and price unmatched by any other solution on the market. It can introduce easy automation to outbound business processes to improve automation for transitional business processes that must support both paper and electronic information.
