What is a Workflow?

A workflow is a sequence of manual and automated tasks that support the management of a process. The sequence and dependencies, deadlines and approvals of a given process can all be supported through workflows. Varasset’s configurable workflow engine is a powerful tool that allows you to visualize processes and coordinate work between team members, across department lines and third parties.

Workflows automate the routing of nearly any Varasset record. Easily approve or deny requests, require revisions, or add information as the process is completed. Workflows optimize planning, scheduling and resource allocation by analyzing dependencies on tasks, materials, labor, equipment and other factors. Use workflow to improve your organization’s collaboration, communication and transparency.
