Hershey Technologies: Streamlining Businesses Processes through Automation

Neal Fischer, Founder
The Microsoft ecosystem is incredibly rich and continues to be one of the most important agendas for CIOs. Technologies like cloud and mobile are challenging IT and pushing businesses to transform themselves. “And amidst such changes, companies don’t have time to play with technology,” comments Neal Fischer, Founder, Hershey Technologies. “We provide companies real business solutions that hit the bottom line and make a difference.” Hershey is an established leader in ECM solutions including transactional content capture, imaging, enterprise content management, records management, InfoPath eForms, collaboration, and workflow automation leveraging Microsoft SharePoint.

Hershey helps companies focus on improving productivity and realizing measurable results. The company offers a wide range of SharePoint solutions. “Whether you have Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) 3.0, Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007, 2010, or are yet to install SharePoint, we have a solution,” states Fischer. Being a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner, Hershey is adept at installing and configuring SharePoint to maximize efficiency and accuracy. In addition to helping companies create detailed electronic forms and workflows, Hershey also trains client’s staff on the ways to leverage SharePoint to the fullest.

“We can convert your existing paper forms into electronic eForms using Microsoft InfoPath,” adds Fischer. The company utilizes InfoPath and SharePoint to reduce companies’ need for bulky paper forms and make data entry more accurate, timely, and accessible. Hershey’s expertise extends to workflow technologies as well. The company expands the basic SharePoint workflows to incorporate virtually any complex workflow and improve efficiency, accuracy, productivity, while reducing costs.

With nearly 20 years of experience and expertise, Hershey is leading the pack in SharePoint, document imaging, and workflow technologies. “Most of our business is repeat business and referrals because we focus on quality and our customers know what they can expect,” states Fischer.
Hershey differentiates itself by showing real value in the business. “It’s not just installing servers, but in the adoption and understanding the needs of the users,” he adds. Hershey is all about transforming a business, not just by enabling, but by focusing on key business processes and automating them.

Over the years, Hershey has delivered solutions that have impacted a number of large and small businesses. “Our typical customer has a manual process that needs to be overhauled,” reveals Fischer. This was the case with the County of San Diego, where Hershey helped the client automate invoicing and streamlined workflows using data capture technologies including email, scanning, and faxing with Optical Character Recognition (OCR). “Hershey saved staff time and costs, prevented document loss, and managed access including, providing a disaster recovery solution while limiting legal liabilities,” says Fischer. This was a good example of what Hershey can do for customers who may already have SharePoint or multifunction printers, scanners, and fax machines, but are looking to simplify and streamline business processes.

With enterprise content management going to the cloud, Hershey is expanding and aligning its product offerings with this shift. “In addition, content management and collaboration are evolving and it’s very exciting to see where 3D data capture and printing is going,” comments Fischer. “We will be helping businesses adopt the latest technologies that really are transformative.” Hershey is investing in areas where they can most impact the customer’s bottom line and help them as they embrace automation of data capture, enterprise content management, business processes, workflow, and the ever evolving SharePoint and Office 365.
