Performance considerations

In general, new technology can offer all kinds of positive effects. For example, the application of a workflow management system may result in less time that is spent on logistical tasks.

A Document Management System will open up the information available on cases to all participants, which may result in a better quality of service. New technology can also change the traditional way of doing business by giving participants complete new possibilities.

The purchase, development, implementation, training, and maintenance efforts related to technology are obviously costly. In addition, new technology may arouse fear with workers or may result in other subjective effects; this may deteriorate the quality of the workflow.
