Collaboration and Workflow
Automated workflow makes employees, documents and enterprise applications interact efficiently
Workflow capabilities highlights
The Esker workflow module is tightly integrated with the solution providing a complete business information management and document automation solution. The workflow engine can automatically update other systems, trigger applications to produce documents, alert users to take action, and even make decisions based on criteria defined in a workflow rule.
Automated workflow doesn’t necessarily mean zero human intervention. The goal is to significantly minimize manual touch points by providing straight-through-processing in which human intervention is only required to manage exceptions.
With the Esker workflow module, companies have complete management control over the following processes:
How does it work?
The versatile Esker Document Manager allows users to validate and approve processing documents as needed. Whenever a user intervention is necessary within the workflow process, the workflow items are displayed in electronic web forms accessible by users from any location with an Internet connection.
Each workflow scenario is stored in the system in the form of business rules. These rules determine how each document is managed, processed and delivered. For example, incoming invoices are captured in the system and through content analysis Esker DeliveryWare determines the correct workflow to apply. The workflow may include user-related steps (validation and approval) in which the correct user will be alerted or reminded to take action.
The Esker Business Rules Engine is at the heart of Esker Document Process Automation solutions. Based on proven and patented technologies, it allows the automation of virtually any paper-based business process in any type of organization. The solution tightly integrates into company business applications and is designed to allow document information to flow into and out of your current application.
Esker solutions come with pre-defined workflows for processing key business areas including Accounts Payable, E-Purchasing, Accounts Receivable and Sales Order Processing. Our team of specialists can also help you customize a workflow to meet your company’s document processing needs.
