What Is a Standardized Process? And Using it to Boost Productivity and Quality

In large companies, it’s common for teams to develop their own ways of doing things. A single process — like billing or accounting — might happen in a dozen different ways.

In a best-case scenario, this only leads to confusion when teams have to collaborate. In the worst case, untidy process management can also lead to issues like double-billing, lost deliverables, delays, poor work quality, and more.

Without a reliable system for managing mission-critical business processes, your company isn’t running efficiently.

That’s where process standardization comes in. It can help you break down and document processes so that there’s no friction between teams, and you can cross-assign tasks without issue.

In this article, we’ll cover what a standardized process is, its benefits, and how you can easily standardize and even automate processes using frevvo’s automation software.
