Benefits of using Workflows¶
1. Eliminates manual “paper” work
Low-value and repetitive manual tasks can be eliminated by automating steps using a Workflow. This frees users to do activities with more value to the business.
2. Reducing the time required to complete activities
Automating manual steps can reduce the time needed to complete activities. This in turn increases both user and customer satisfaction.
3.Increases Implementation Quality
Automation can help reduce the possibility of human errors in the business process. In turn, the implementation quality will be increased.
4. Increases business agility
Business processes can be configured by changing the way the system performs activities or by creating new behaviors.
