All companies have the need for employees to make quick and reliable decisions
that satisfy customers and further their industry position. They desire to
eliminate paper, reduce idle time, and either automate decision points or allow
their employees to make those decisions based on clear rules. This can all
be accomplished with an efficient and intelligent management of business processes.
WorkFlow management is a technology which is used by businesses in a variety of
industries to do this. The primary characteristic of this technology is the
control and automation of processes involving humans and IT applications and tools.
Although its most prevalent use is in staff intensive operations such as telecommunications,
insurance, banking, legal, general administration, etc; it is also applicable to
various industrial and manufacturing situations.
WorkFlow organizes a business process into series of discrete tasks that occur in
an organized sequence. It then provides for the automation of those processes so
that documents, information, or tasks are passed from one resource (human or machine)
to the next for action according to a set of procedural rules.
The key benefits of WorkFlow are:
Improved efficiency - automation of business processes resulting in the elimination
of many unnecessary steps.
Better process control - improved management of business processes by standardizing
working methods and providing audit trails.
