One of the many uses in our company
As an outsourcing company, we send our customers regular reports on work performed, acceptance reports and reports from monitoring systems. Previously, the reports had to be generated from the system, saved, converted to PDF and worked with. Now the whole process is automatic, reports are saved in a folder by customer and month, a link is sent to the relevant department manager for approval, all within Team. At the moment of approval, all the reports, including the tailored text, are sent directly to the customer. The hours of time saved can then be used more efficiently.
