What is Workflow?
During our working life we all carry out lots of repeatable tasks, many of which involve paper documents and a logical set of rules. Workflow software, or as it’s also known, BPM (Business Process Management) software, allows us create the business process, with its rules and logic but in a paperless environment.
Users would normally interact with the workflow process via email or a web portal on their intranet. Benefits of this type of system range from reduction in labour, faster processing of tasks, accountability and ability to remodel a process rapidly.
Formate eVo & infoRouter Workflow
Workflow software offers many attractive benefits and associated savings, however many products on the market are expensive and complex and only suitable for large corporate companies with big budgets and IT resources.
Formate eVo & infoRouter can perform simple workflow functionality as they have the ability to follow a predefined set of rules and have interfaces into email (client and server), MS Excel, XML, Adobe LiveCycle Forms and MS SharePoint (web portal); all of which can be used to build a workflow process.
These software solutions aren’t suitable for very complex workflows with thousands of users across a very large organisation but in many instances they have worked effectively and efficiently, for a fraction of the cost of a dedicated workflow product.
