Use web-based workflow software to manage time-differences

The internet is a fantastic tool that has allowed us to work with people from all over the world. How do we manage our processes though? Time differences may mean that we never get to speak to our colleagues in Canada. The simple solution is having a real-time, web-based workflow application available for everyone to use.

Let’s say your graphic designer colleague in Canada does all of your company’s artwork. He’s never online when you are and you never quite know if you are going to get your designs on time.

By implementing an online workflow solution, you can track exactly how much work your colleague has done on any given task. A workflow application allows you to predict any future problems that may arise.

A web-based workflow application can send out reminder emails and overdue notices automatically, without you needing to keep track of tasks late at night.

Why wouldn’t you make your life easier – and get a good night’s sleep?

Is everything running smoothly?

Getting things running smoothly with workflow

Getting things running smoothly with workflow


Your business processes can run smoothly by implementing a workflow solution.

Efficient workflow software helps your processes run smoothly by offering the following benefits:


  • Good workflow software has an inbuilt searching and filtering functionality which saves time when looking for information.
  • To avoid two people changing the same information at the same time, good workflow software locks data when you access it.
  • Workflow software checks answers against a set of possible answers or rules.  This ensures that all information in the system is correct and meaningful thus reducing errors.
  • An approval feature allows other members of organizations to approve information before it progresses, ensuring management or client approval is not bypassed.

The above benefits add to the overall effectiveness of implementing a professional workflow solution. The beauty of a workflow application is that every department within an organisation benefits from the the streamlining of processes. Communication is improved and bottlenecks are immediately visible, allowing problems to be solved before they cause a problem.

Complete tasks by using web-forms

When participating in a workflow, you can contribute information through web-forms. With web-forms you:

  • Complete tasks by filling out simple or complex web-forms.
  • Answer questions and have the answers stored in a database.
  • Place post-it notes on web-forms.
  • See a log of all changes to data within a web-form.
  • View help on a web-form to ensure its correct completion.
  • See informative error messages when web-forms are fill out incorrectly.
  • Lock forms to prevent use by more that one person at a time
  • AJAX enabled forms so you are not waiting for pages to refresh
  • Capture Parent, Child and Grand Child information
  • View, create and update information in 3rd party databases
  • Approve and Reject web-forms.
  • Upload, check-in and check-out documents or files.

Workflow software speeds up communication between relevant parties and makes your life easier, saving you time and your organisation money.
