When the pandemic struck the Philippines in March 2020, almost all small and large businesses were forced to adopt remote working, hoping that the current digital infrastructure could support the demand of companies. More than two years into this health crisis, many firms are still implementing a hybrid setup despite easing COVID restrictions across the Philippines. 

The IT and business process management (IT-BPM), considered one of the major sectors in the country, previously urged the government to allow companies to continue the work-from-home and hybrid work setups. Months later, the administration finally heeded the call, enabling many Filipinos to complete their tasks and deliverables away from the corners of a usual workplace. 

The Information Technology and Business Process Association of the Philippines (IBPAP) branded the decision as a “game-changer” for the nation. 

According to a study conducted by global technology firm Cisco, most Filipino employees prefer hybrid work options, believing their well-being improved as they no longer need to deal with traffic woes going to the office. However, the same study revealed that less than 30% of the employees believe their companies are “very prepared” for the switch

With employees working remotely, how can these organizations maintain or even increase work productivity using automated tools? The heads of these companies might think they have a concrete plan to implement a project or assignment, but are they assured that it will always run smoothly?

A reliable workflow management system can complement the remote working setup. This is where the expertise of Monstarlab Philippines’ Attaché Docs comes in. It enables companies to customize their workflows, a platform where they can manage business activities and track employees’ assigned tasks. 

What are the benefits of having a workflow management system?

— Less confusion

When you have good workflow management, your business will be organized, and ensure that every employee is informed about the plan, deadline, and assignments. Employees are also well-connected since the platform keeps everyone in the loop. 

— Increased trust

No one wants to feel they are being micromanaged. Since everybody knows their job and is updated about each other’s tasks, managers can be assured employees are on top of their duties. 

— Boosted productivity, reduced costs 

Employees are now free from sending emails to alert and change information as they can do it within the tool. Attaché Docs has easy-to-use features that allow employees to add notes to documents, remind users of due dates, and drag and drop widgets for better sorting. Finishing documents and projects will not take much time as the platform can be accessed in real-time to monitor if they are on track for completion. 

With Attaché Docs, businesses will also not have to dwell on mounting documents as the technology provider can automate how they manage their documents, from collecting to storing them. Using its barcode technology, businesses can also attach scanned documents, search contents within the uploaded documents, and sort documents based on date. 

To ensure that a hybrid or remote work setup will be effective and beneficial for a company, the management must deploy the needed digital tool to help employees adapt to the new normal.
