We’ve moved beyond the Digital Age into a new era of continuous improvement. And alongside it, there’s an intense scrutiny on becoming leaner. No it’s not another diet fad or fitness craze. It’s about efficiency combined with overall worth. Today companies are constantly striving to do more with less, while simultaneously delivering better value to their customers.

Originally spawned during the 80s and 90s with SixSigma and Lean Manufacturing, it’s blossomed into the survival of the leanest. Companies are applying this philosophy to every aspect of the business. Each department is actively seeking new improvements that will transform an aspect of the business with an eye on the long-term operational advantages.

Offshoring, outsourcing and automating are becoming the norm and give companies a competitive edge. There are apps, software and enterprise systems available to automate virtually every manual process imaginable from HR to marketing to finance. Departments everywhere are tightening their belts.

One of the most labor-intensive areas of any business is manually processing orders and invoices. Yet it doesn’t have to be.
