    Workflow - Makes the Work Flow

    Workflow automation cannot be applied to every process, but in the areas of practice that are routine and repeatable, workflow automation can pay big dividends.

    Thanks to the team at Mitratech for this helpful guide on workflow automation ROI (registration required - you give to get)...

    My favorite - #7 - Digitizing Archiving. The costs of managing paper - as presented in this section - will help you gain support of a paper-to-digital effort in your firm or department..

    Increasing Productivity Across the Firm

    Imagine: you arrive at work around 9:30 a.m., and as you walk through the suite to your office, all you hear is.. well, the quietude of a library. And you observe, associates, partners, secretaries, paralegals.. each heads down reading a book.

    Sounds daft? But this radical approach may be the key to unlocking new levels of productivity across the firm.

    Thanks to the AICPA blog for the informative article about the FIRST 15 - a remarkable way to do a reset for the individuals involved. Check out the link in the article.. then put in a call to your CPA. They can deliver resources to help launch the program, although it sounds pretty straight forward.
