Paper is patient. Are your business partners?
Traditional, paper-based processes lead to delays again and again. Because paper documents have to be transported physically. They pile up in storage and tend not to be accessible at the most inopportune moments. The results are long transportation and waiting times, a lack of transparency and access to information and last but not least frustrated employees. With the process automation of EASY Workflow you put an end to that – and step into a new dimension of efficiency and speed.
Design document-based processes
Do you want to improve the workflow? Then EASY Workflow is the ideal solution for you. With it, you can design document-based processes in the company more easily, more securely, and more efficiently. The workflow management system allows extensive process automation, for example in the processing of incoming invoices or incoming mail. The workflow software automatically assigns information to business processes after a comparison with, for example, master data in the ERP, so that it reaches the right contact person with no loss of time. Thanks to proxy rules, processes are quickly handled even when the contact person is absent. Follow-ups and reminder functions make sure that no document is left unhandled.
Location independent and web-based
EASY Workflow allows web-based access anytime and anywhere via an intuitive user interface. The workflow management software web client supports all standard mobile devices. An integrated authorization system ensures that only a select set of employees can see and adjust business processes. In addition, there are extensive reporting options and live analyses.
The workflow process
Automatic task allocation
A powerful workflow engine automatically forwards documents to the next processor and processing step. The process can also be initiated by the user as an ad hoc workflow.
Freely definable approval scenarios
Approval and authorization scenarios can be easily adapted to the customer’s individual parameters and testing requirements in EASY Workflow. The workflow management system channels the document from approval stage to approval stage – always to the correct person responsible. And if that person is absent, to their predefined substitute.
If deadlines need to be observed – e.g. discount periods for invoices – appropriate reminders can be set up as a standard or entered by the initiator in ad hoc workflows. If a document has been sitting too long and a deadline is at risk, the current processor automatically receives a reminder email.
All information and documents which employees need for approval can be viewed via the web client or mobile apps. An approval can be granted on the desktop or any standard mobile device. The approval can even trigger processes in turn – e.g. the automatic transfer to accounting or the creation of a posting record for invoices.
