Workflow management system
Workflow management system
Workflow management is the process of figuring out which activities lead to the desired result and then arranging & coordinating them. Workflow management entails enhancing & automating processes to boost productivity, do away with mundane tasks, and cut down on mistakes.
Interfinet Technologies provide a workflow that may consist of a single step or many, and its execution may be handled entirely by humans or entirely automatically. Our Workflow managers constantly look for ways to streamline processes and increase transparency.
Our workflow system is an integrated platform that combines many workflow technologies into a single, seamless application. Your company can try several procedures to automate in a linear fashion in accordance with business standards by using our workflow system. Our workflow system also can automate processes that are performed by both machines and people.
Types of workflows
Each step in a sequential process is dependent on the successful completion of an earlier phase. If you’re in charge of a procurement division, for instance, you can’t pay the bill until the quotation is made as well as the purchase is approved. Conditional logic (if this, then that) used in rules-based workflows is one form of a sequential process.
When numerous jobs are completed at once, we speak of a parallel workflow. For instance, when onboarding a new employee, HR may coordinate the acquisition of necessary hardware and software with the finance department, and may request necessary documentation, signatures, & contracts from the legal department. These workflows, which are frequently referred to as “state workflows,” are interdependent.
What are the key aspects of these workflows?
Checking out the parts of a workflow that will help you see how they can be automated. Each item may be easily categorized, and the information entered into a system that will use to aid workers.
What’s put in to make something happen. In the context of human resources onboarding, inputs could include the hiree’s documentation, contact details, and a list of the necessary hardware, software, as well as other office supplies.
Transformation, or the application of a set of activities designed to bring the inputs to the desired output state, is the focus here. This may mean delivering documentation for sign-off, reviewing a new hire’s details, or giving an onboarding job to a team member.
Products of each transformation are also known as outputs. Both intermediate items (a contract awaiting one signature, a package full of office equipment) and final products (an executed contract as well as a received shipment) are included here.
Workflow automation systems have their own language, and it may be mapped onto these elements. They can be built into tasks, allocated to users, & tracked to completion, turning them from ideas to real, active work.
In such systems, users would first upload inputs, then allocate them to a different user, who would then change the inputs before the final outputs were ready.
