Description from the Publisher
Datapolis Workbox 2007 is an advanced platform designed for creating and managing business processes. It is a practical tool for defining simple document flows, such as flow of invoices, absences, sick leaves or business trips, as well as modeling complex business processes based on company?s IT systems. Thanks to implementation of state workflow model, the processes may be modeled in an easy way and represented in a readable and understandable fashion.
Designed for managers and analysts responsible for process management within the company:
Workbox has been created as a simple tool with powerful capabilities, easy to understand and use by non-technical staff.
No need for programming:
Designing and implementing processes does not require coding. The whole process may be created in the dedicated graphical designer and automatically deployed on the SharePoint environment.
A part of Workbox is a web-based graphical designer. The modeled processes are presented in a readable and vivid way. The designer is very easy to both understand and use.
Integration with SharePoint:
A great advantage of Workbox is its deep integration with SharePoint platform. Workbox was created as a SharePoint add-in. It does not have its own database and workflow engine. Workbox utilizes SharePoint lists and libraries as data repository and Windows Workflow Foundation as a workflow engine. Workbox runs on MOSS 2007 as well as on WSS 3.0 platform.
You can easily extend Workbox to suit your needs. Because of its open architecture, other companies may develop additional functionalities (for example data connectors for ERP or CRM systems) and deploy them in the Workbox environment, thus enabling users to incorporate them in their workflows.
