Document Routing: Definition, Process, & Benefits

With the increasing complexity and volume of data, manual document handling can be time-consuming, prone to errors, and laborious. Important documents can easily get lost or overlooked in the deluge of information. This is where document workflow and automation come into play. Document routing, a pivotal part of document automation, can enhance your business operations, streamline workflows, and eliminate delays that might affect client relationships or payments. This comprehensive guide delves into the nuances of document workflow, OCR automation, and how it brings tangible benefits to businesses. 

Understanding Document Routing in the Document Workflow

Document routing refers to the workflow or system that navigates files to the right locations in a document's lifecycle. This aspect of document automation is vital for successful navigation through different document lifecycle stages, with a focus on delivery. These deliveries can occur in various destinations, from email addresses, network folders, web folders, and databases, to CRM and ERP systems. 

This organized document workflow ensures seamless approvals between departments and team members. Document routing leverages advanced technologies like AI and machine learning to ensure accurate and sophisticated outcomes. It creates an automated document workflow that keeps employees in the loop about the documents requiring their attention. It can be programmed to proceed or redirect to someone else for approval if inactivity occurs.

The Mechanics of Document Routing in Document Automation

Document routing follows specific rules the enterprise or user establishes, essentially creating a document automation system. To set these rules, an administrator must first define criteria like the content group and type, then establish the file destinations. Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) automate this process, helping intelligently resolve any discrepancies that may arise.
