What’s workflow automation?
Workflow automation is an easy way to streamline manual and paper-based processes often comprised of unstructured tasks involving people, processes, and content. Workflow and Content Automation (WCA) represents the consolidation of traditional workflow and content generation into a new category to support the needs of a digital business. It’s about improving processes – from the everyday to the elaborate. It’s about working with content no matter what or where it is, and routing it to the right recipients in the best way for them to use it. It’s about straightforward processes. Workflow and content automation is a category unto itself.
What is workflow?
Let’s start with defining a workflow. In its most basic definition, a workflow is a business process where tasks, information, or content moves from one person to another for action, according to a set of rules.
Why choose workflow automation?
Workflow automation helps you streamline your processes, integrate your content and drive collaboration between people. It’s about improving processes – from the everyday to the elaborate – that are designed for your unique needs. It’s about working with content no matter what or where it is, and routing it to the right recipients in the best, most intuitive, efficient way for them to use it and keep business moving.
Designed to be quick, easy and powerful
Legacy IT architectures struggle with the rapid testing, failing, learning, adapting, and iterating that digital innovations require. With Nintex, you can rapidly design a workflow, test and measure its viability before you scale it across your enterprise. It’s built precisely for a test-and-learn paradigm. In the two-speed world of IT, you can be agile in days and weeks instead of months or years.
Use clicks, not code
Our software and cloud services allow oorganisations to quickly and easily automate day-to-day business processes using clicks rather than code. As we’ve always done, ours is the only platform that puts a low-code solution in the hands of users. The result? Nintex fills the void between IT, business leaders and end users, giving more people the power to design and manage their own workflows.
