3 Ways to Profit by Automating Manual Supply Chain Processes


July 15, 2014

Does your team spend hours a day-each-on manual updates?

You may have tried to automate, only to hear it isn’t possible. But worker automation is VERY possible, and organizations across the supply chain and around the world are saving significant time and money with Kapow’s integration and work automation platform.

Download this whitepaper and learn three ways your organization can:

  • Automate handling payment processes - assess your own organization by organizing a review of your receivables process. If you need to provide multiple documents prior to payment, include those steps in your review.
  • Automate responding to email - review your customer-facing service organizations and seek cost containment opportunities from automatically processing email-but cost containment isn’t the only possibility.
  • Automate procurement processes - examine high-volume manual updates to partner web portals and evaluate replacing those updates with a direct integration using Kapow automation. Download the white paper now.
