Here are a few Docsvault Document Workflow management tools to implement for smart back office
User based Access:
Docsvault’s electronic workflow streamlines tasks at hand for responsible participants with ‘User Based Access’. Administrators can specify which users or groups will be a part of the workflow and its various steps. These users can be grouped into the following roles:
Initiators: Start a workflow on a document.
Managers: Supervise the entire workflow and have the privilege to transition or cancel a workflow at any point.
Watchers: Monitor a workflow process. However, they cannot perform any action on the workflow.
Participants: Assigned to perform a task in a particular step of the workflow. Users can add dynamic participants to any workflow step through the use of the “Users/Groups” dynamic index field.
With Docsvault’s customizable graphical interface, users can model simple linear workflows or advanced non-linear multi-directional workflows according to each organization’s reality. Users can easily create tasks with drag-and-drop interface, predefine participants and steps, set deadlines and set notifications without writing a single line of code.
Notifications & Reminders
With Notifications & Reminders tool, various reminders and alerts can be set for users and managers informing them about overdue tasks in the workflow. Workflow participants, managers and watchers are also informed about the progress of the workflow via email notifications and various alerts.
Docsvault provides built-in individual and manager level workflow reports to enable users to assess the efficiency of their workflows and related business processes. Administrators can use these reports to locate problems with processes or to determine whether a group or individual is meeting performance targets for a particular business process.
Docsvault’s electronic Document Workflow Management leads not only to better business efficiency, but also increases customer satisfaction and employee engagement.
