A*Star Sharing on Digital Tools for Productivity: SIMTech wfMOBILE™

SMEs today are under pressure to transform digitally to continue to remain competitive in a difficult business climate. Many SMEs today still rely on paper based systems to record and transmit information from one party to another and this often leads to issues of mistakes, miscommunication and overall low productivity.

Additionally, SMEs may find it difficult to choose and decide on the right tools that are able to meet their needs, with IT systems often being costly, complicated and lacking customisation options. Furthermore, most SMEs do not have the level of in-house ICT skills necessary to maintain a complicated IT system.

Hence, SIMTech’s wfMOBILE™ system was developed to help SMEs digitise some of their work processes. As a system with built-in configuration capabilities to capture various forms of information, various types of workflows may be designed to meet the needs of the company with no programming. The benefits that the company may gain is reduced use of paper, shorter process cycle times and better visibility of work processes.
