Modern Office Methods Case Study | Fujitsu RunMyProcess

Modern Office Methods streamlines operations in various business areas

With RunMyProcess DigitalSuite, the office equipment supplier Modern Office Methods quickly developed applications that streamline and automate the company’s expense management, sales lead tracking, and credit application processes – creating efficiencies for several areas of its business.

Challenges Faced by Modern Office Methods

Modern Office Methods (MOM) decided to migrate its operations to the cloud to reduce hardware and administration hardware IT costs and become more flexible in software deployment. The company was also struggling with time-consuming and error-prone manual business processes that it wanted to eliminate. In particular, MOM sought to improve three areas of its business: sales leads, expense management, and lease credit applications. In search of a solution that offered cloud-based, pre-built application connectors, Dave Bandy, Senior IT Development Manager at MOM, came across the flexible, cloud-native platform RunMyProcess DigitalSuite and was impressed with the minimal coding required.

The first solution developed with RunMyProcess DigitalSuite was for sales leads tracking. Within several weeks, MOM created intuitive, personalized dashboards for each service tech, displaying all their leads and their current status – accessible through the techs’ mobile devices.

Regarding the company’s expense management process, MOM developed a new online reimbursement form that automatically compiles receipts with all related information, and queues each request for review and approval.

As for the lease credit applications, an automated solution was implemented in just three weeks, drastically simplifying the process. Now, credit applications are submitted and returned within 5-10 minutes, rather than several hours.

“The pre-fabricated connectors of [RunMyProcess DigitalSuite] make building new cloud solutions very easy. That gets people thinking outside of the box about how maybe there’s an alternative to just creating another paper-based form. It’s an innovative platform.”
