Workflow for businesses of all sizes.
A business process is a set of activities or tasks that, once completed, will accomplish an organisational goal. These processes are designed to add value for staff and customers. At the heart of any successful business are a set of business processes. Automating these processes can start simple - with entry-level sequential actions and templated common business activities.
From there, automation can progress all the way to enterprise-class business process mapping with forms designer, graphical user interface, API’s, analytics and reporting. This is full workflow functionality, comparable with world’s best, using a robust engine scalable to thousands of users if required. In-built forms designer for simple workflows or enhance using Visual Studio or similar.
Key benefits of Work Assist solutions
Workflow streamlines the action items associated with any business activity. These action items may be manual steps requiring verification only, or alternatively may be computer-assisted steps performing functions under automation (posting, updating, extracting etc.). Here are some examples of benefits that could be realised with the implementation of a workflow solution:
Ensure compliance with Health & Safety policies
Track and approve changes to critical documentation
HR cycles; including on-boarding, employment conditions, and outsourcing
Handle and follow-up a series of time-critical project steps
Replace administrative forms with an electronic equivalent (travel, leave, expense claim etc.)
Obtain clear audit trails over actions and events
Automate Accounts Payable routines for matching and approval
Streamline data collection and data import processes
Connect users with data and systems as they need them

Working with people and content
In a nutshell, Workflow Automation can deliver information to the people who need it most, and attest to the completion of work requested. It’s connecting people with data and processes, as well as documenting decisions and actions taken.
Some processes create content while others simply forward that content from an existing business application. Talk to us about securing content as part of the workflow cycle, snapshots of project timelines as they progress, and dashboards alerting management to possible bottle-necks or delays.
