Paperwork and PDFs are a primary source of bottlenecks when scaling technology solutions within insurance, healthcare, finance, or any other industry that relies heavily on paperwork. If you’ve tried to automate your paperwork processes, you know how complex and time-consuming it can be. There's a plethora of document management solutions out there, but none seem sufficient enough in serving as the end-to-end solution that scales with your business, or flexible enough to address all of your existing paperwork processes. As a result, companies are often stuck with the option of developing costly internal manual processes that don't scale, juggling multiple integrations that don’t communicate well with each other, or building customized software at a very high price.

Workflows are built to scale

Anvil Workflows are built on the idea that paperwork and PDFs do not have to be a bottleneck to growth. Workflows enable operations teams to have the flexibility and power to customize PDF-based processes so that they scale for the long term. We enable any business to replace manual paperwork processes with flexible, end-to-end workflows that handle any kind of paperwork. Here’s how in three steps:

  1. Create - Create simple and intuitive web forms that simplify data capture, auto-fills your PDFs and streamlines

collecting e-signatures. 2. Share - Share your Workflow with customers and contacts and simplify the paperwork process for everyone. Workflows can be completed from any device. 3. Integrate - Integrate Anvil into all of the tools you use. Eliminate data-entry by sending data to your CRM. Securely store completed documents in a shared drive. Automatically trigger new Anvil Workflow submissions from your proprietary code.

Given the overwhelming popularity of Anvil Workflows with our customers, we decided to ask our customers how we could make Workflows even better. Over the last year, we spoke with Anvil-powered businesses to better understand their evolving needs. With the valuable feedback, we’ve redesigned Workflows for a more intuitive and streamlined experience.

Workflows is built for everyone
