In addition to document and print management, WorkflowOne provides analytical services and technology to help hospitals and IDNs manage their brand-related spend. These include a document needs assessment and output management analysis to determine the optimal ways to produce, store and distribute documents. Recommendations cover the role of internal print shops, better ways to manage fleets of copiers and desktop printers, and advice on migration to electronic medical records. The company also offers a web-based system called WorkflowOneAccess to facilitate e-commerce, inventory management, digital asset management and reporting.
