Customers Globally Achieved Cost Savings and Business Benefits, Finds an Independent Research
According to Deloitte, “While 85% of CEOs accelerated digital initiatives during the pandemic, most can’t articulate their overall strategy and progress beyond that they made a tech investment.” Realizing the emerging needs and goals of organizations, Newgen provides and continuously upgrades its low code and cloud-based digital transformation platform, NewgenONE, to help organizations across industries accelerate their digital transformation journeys.
The Total Economic Impact™ of Newgen Software, a Forrester Consulting Study Recently, Newgen commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study and examine the potential return on investment (ROI) enterprises may realize by deploying its solutions in digital transformation. The study provides readers with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of Newgen on their organizations. Forrester interviewed three decision-makers with experience using Newgen Software to better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with the investment.
The study found that Newgen provided a 371% ROI and a $29M NPV for a composite organization over three years with a payback period of less than six months. The study further described how a composite organization experienced improvements in areas like employee productivity, workflow efficiency, customer experience, and regulatory compliance, leading to significant cost savings and business benefits after deploying Newgen’s solutions for digital transformation.

Digital transformation has undoubtedly become a critical part of the boardroom agenda for organizations of all sizes and scales. Gartner states that organizations accelerate digital transformation processes for long-term growth and profitability. Yet: “53% of the organizations surveyed remain untested in the face of digital challenge and their digital transformation readiness therefore uncertain.”
But you can be ready to face the digital challenges by utilizing hyper-automation tools. The range of tools includes automation technologies such as robotic process automation (RPA), artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), natural language processing (NLP), optical character recognition (OCR), process discovery, and others. A digital transformation platform helps business leaders like you build a connected enterprise. These automation solutions will help by engaging employees, customers, and third-party across regions, functions, and departments through their preferred location, time, and channel. It helps fulfill your initiatives and bring together people, processes, and systems seamlessly in real-time.

Newgen has conducted a poll on LinkedIn, asking our followers, “What does ‘Transforming Experiences’ mean to you?”
The results were that 45% of respondents said they interpreted “transforming experiences” as enabling anytime, anywhere operations, and 28% responded with end-to-endcustomer journey enablement. It’s no surprise, especially during a disruptive global pandemic, that most organizations are focused on improving customer experience, uninterrupted business operations, and secure remote accessibility.
But the question is how can enterprises, like yours, transform the end-to-end experience for your internal and external users?
Let’s see if the answer lies in digital transformation.
What is Digital Transformation Anyway?
In a separate poll, we asked our LinkedIn network what “Digital transformation should mean.” 38% of people responded with simplified work, while the rest of the respondents were split evenly between paperless operations (24%), new innovations (22%), and happy customers (16%).
All of them are right! Based on our experience over the past nearly three decades, we believe that effective digital transformation should involve:
Enhancing your customer experience through omnichannel interactions and prompt communications
Empowering your employees with tools to rapidly develop and update business applications
Providing visibility, connectivity, and accessibility to your employees, across your end-to-end operations
Implementing an agile IT infrastructure, with new-age technologies, that can grow with your company
Transforming Experiences through Digital Transformation
As “transformed experiences” is becoming a competitive differentiation, enterprises must accelerate their digital initiatives. In fact, analysts at Forrester said, “In 2021, we predict that companies will accelerate digital transformation with a focus on customers and the products, practices, platforms, partners, and places to sell to and serve them.”
To us, “transforming experiences” means enabling anytime-anywhere operations, seamless customer journeys, omnichannel engagement, modernization of your existing IT systems, smooth collaboration, and more.
Remember the time when we could touch any document and meet our colleagues freely?
With COVID-19, things have changed drastically. We have become physically distant and wary of handling documents. This has affected our decision-making, customer service, and overall organizational efficiency.

To locate information easily, you must index documents by associating metadata with the respective documents and folders
For seamless processing, you must define the role of maker and checkers so that documents are auto-routed
Organizing the repository based on your enterprise’s departmental structure is key. All departmental documents must be stored under the respective entities and business documents should be organized based on the lines of business
Search Operation at Document and Folder Level
Easy access to information is one of the main value-adds of a document processing system. When you are selecting a system, ensure that it supports advanced and intuitive search operations at multiple levels
Permission Access and Administration
It is critical that you secure your information using the restricted access permission capability so that only the intended users can view, add, or modify documents. You can grant access permissions at the user group level, rather than to specific users. Also, setting access permissions at the folder level will simplify the management and maintenance of your documents
A digital document processing software is key to thriving in a remote working environment, especially as employees and documents continue to be physically separated for the foreseeable future.
