A better way to route, review, and approve: The Kiefer Review and Approve Solution

Updated: July 22,2020: Many agencies have processes that are highly manual in nature. These processes are typically dependent upon the serial review and approval of critical documents. We have often encountered processes that require multiple staff members to review, approve, and route documents to numerous stakeholders across an organization.

With organizations adjusting to a distributed workforce, certain processes are unsupportable. One of the most common processes to be impacted is a review, route and approve process.

The Challenges

  • Since many review and approval processes are manual, there is a chance that critical documents can sit with an approver for an extended amount of time, which will slow your review/approval process.
  • It’s often difficult to know which reviewer is reviewing the documents.
  • Manual processes can be unpredictable. It’s difficult to estimate how long an approval process might take.

Typical “serial processes” require reviewers to review critical information and route to another reviewer for approval.

The Kiefer Review and Approve Solution simplifies the process of routing information for internal review and approval. This innovative solution transforms a traditionally manual and paper-based workflow into a fully electronic one. Internal stakeholders have improved visibility to where certain documents are in the approval workflow and the system has automated alerts to keep the process moving.

The Benefits
