Easy to use Graphical Designer
Workflows are designed with a web-based graphical flowchart tool directly within CIPAce™ . Designing a workflow can be as easy as drag and-dropping data and control elements. This familiar and easy-to-use interface allows your organization to modify or adjust business processes on-the-fly in order to dynamically optimize operational performance objectives. You and your staff will create and immediately deploy business process workflows with minimal training required.
Notification and Communication Engine
CIPAce™ Workflow Engine features an integrated email-based alert system to facilitate the communication of different workflow events. Using the Notification and Communication Engine, you simply define your triggers and notify workflow participants. CIPAce™ generates both status reports for a particular phase in the workflow process as well as summaries defined sets of actions communicated throughout your organization. You can seamlessly share the progress of your business workflow as a project or program moves from engineering to design to construction.
