With Agility, business process management is a way of life. Creating and enforcing workflows is exquisitely simple.
Agility lets you assign workflows to any object, whether it’s a product, a group, a section, an image or even an individual attribute. Using a simple wizard, data stewards and administrators can determine the steps included in each workflow, assigning resources to each one and determining how the owners of the steps will be notified – i.e., through a “to do” list or an email or both. Agility can even interact with other systems through workflow.
When an object – for instance, a new image – is created, Agility Workflow is automatically initiated. Users are notified the moment they log in to Agility. At any time, product managers can view the current status of any project, even if they’re away from the office, via a dashboard on their iPad or other device. As each task is completed, the user pushes workflow to the next stage, person or group in line, triggering a notification. Agility ensures a steady, predictable flow in the life cycles of products, assets and all other objects.
We’ve built automation into all aspects of Agility Workflow. For example, product approval can trigger export of associated product information to a website or any other channel. One workflow can be prompted or triggered by another, and all workflows can be defined to limit user access or functionality.
