Mobius Management Systems introduces WorkflowDirect, a Java-based business process platform for designing and building workflow applications that connect the enterprise with customers and trading partners. WorkflowDirect integrates with Mobius’ ViewDirect content repository and links documents to work items and users throughout the workflow.
The company reports WorkflowDirect is used to design and build applications that support e-business applications, such as procurement and supply chain management, as well as back-office operations such as invoice processing. Business tasks can be defined, routed, tracked and updated as required, Mobius explains, adding that the workflow can include interfaces for user interaction as well as interfaces with systems such as finance and accounting, billing, sales and distribution.
Mobius says additional features of WorkflowDirect include:
- security that can be set at the user, group and/or company level, ensuring that only designated users have access and participation in the flow;
- notifications regarding task items or events by e-mail, pager and/or fax;
- work item creation manually by the user or automatically as a result of an event such as a received purchase order or generated invoice; and
- user interfaces for employee or customer interactions, as well as application interfaces.
