Collaboration & Connectivity
Crucial to efficient workflow is the collaboration and connectivity of your organization’s staff which OrbFusion facilitates.
Users collaborate with the aim of maintaining the business processes as well as to increase the pace and level of efficiency of which documents within these processes are actioned.
During the execution of a business process (for example), the completion of a workflow task initiates an alert for the next user (either internally or externally) in the workflow to take action. These notifications are based on user defined templates and provide the ability for other relevant data or attachments to accompany the message.
To avoid bottlenecks within a business process, the steps within the process can easily be escalated using the predefined escalation rules. The policies for such escalations are defined for each step within the business process which increases your organization’s competence in managing the workflow.
Thanks to the fact that it is a web-based application that can function across browsers, OrbFusion further enables users to connect to the system while working off-site.
Auditability & Monitoring
By keeping a comprehensive audit trail of all actions performed in OrbFusion, a transparent view of your key business processes is provided. An updated, clear and visual audit trail therefore increases user accountability and enables the reviewing of the process followed.You can also monitor the efficiency of processes, either on a specific task or for a phase within a process. Lead-times can be defined for a process as a base line for monitoring the performance of the business process. To illuminate the efficiency of the process and aid with identifying and improving the performance of the process, users can refer to the graphical views provided within the OrbFusion solution.
