The Right Workflow Tool for the Job

Optimizing business processes requires using the right tools for the right jobs. To help organizations and any workflow manager identify when a solution like Integrify is a good fit, we have created the following list of decision points.

If the answer to any of the following questions is “yes,” we believe it’s worth considering a workflow platform like Integrify, either as a standalone request management solution or in conjunction with a SharePoint deployment.

  • Do you want to be able to quickly define and alter processes?
  • Are future updates/modifications expected frequently?
  • Do you want the ability to empower business units with direct control over their business rules and processes?
  • Are you modeling processes that cross departmental and application boundaries?
  • Do you have processes (or steps) that require more complex exception handling and logic?
  • Are your IT resources limited?
  • Is custom integration needed/helpful?
  • Do you expect advanced reporting capabilities and easy customization of reports?

If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions, investigating a solution like Integrify is a natural fit for your needs—even if you’re already using SharePoint for its rich set of collaboration, document management, business intelligence, or other capabilities.
