Enterprises have long strived to carry out digital transformation—the transition of workflows and processes from physical medias into completely digital domains. There’s no doubt the pandemic propelled many organizations to take the much-needed shift head-on. With workers forced to work remote, some operations temporarily ceasing, and other operations scrambling to find safe ways to deliver goods and services, workflows had to change. In some cases, customer experience did too.
The Business Breakdown in Working Remote
Challenges like staff acceptance, customer acceptance, technology limitations, project delays, business complexities, limited planning, and others made getting a transformation project from concept to implementation difficult to do.
Traditional digitalization techniques do not work for complex B2B business transactions. While the process is similar for each transaction a business undertakes, in many cases, each instance has its own unique twist. That complexity often negates the use of software platforms like ERP or CRM as a base for transformation.
The Trouble with Unstructured Content
One particularly difficult aspect for many transformation efforts, especially in business-to-business workflows, is the exchange of unstructured content. Legacy B2B processes often relied on the exchange of paper documents, physical signatures, overnight couriers, file folders, and other traditional elements of the business. Customers prepare documents, the business prepares documents, both sides exchange documents, documents change, both sides sign documents, and so on until the transaction either completes, or ends unfinished.
Regardless of the underlying software platform, transitioning a process’s physical elements, particularly as part of a single transformation effort, is difficult and, for many reasons, borders on impossible. This led individual workers to figure out their own document exchange workarounds. With those workarounds, the customer experience became inconsistent, documentation wasn’t in its required state, transaction status became unknown, efforts violated compliance rules, and on and on.
