Workflow and Worflow Management


A workflow consists of an orchestrated and repeatable pattern of business activity enabled by the systematic organization of resources into processes that transform materials, provide services, or process information. It can be depicted as a sequence of operations, declared as work of a person or group, an organization of staff, or one or more simple or complex mechanisms.

Workflows may be viewed as one fundamental building block to be combined with other parts of an organization’s structure such as information technology, teams, projects and hierarchies. Adding forms to workflows enable you to make your workflows more dynamic and flexible. Forms enable you to gather information from users at predefined times in the workflow’s life, as well as let users interact with the tasks for that workflow.

Black Box provides the Workflow and Worflow Management service to businesses and organizations that require development or improvement of systems and applications that manage workflow processes and operations, and form customization and integration.
