Modelling processes with viflow

Modelling processes

Regardless of whether you prefer to map your processes with Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN), as a flow chart or in swim lanes, with viflow, you can represent your processes exactly as you wish. You simply model using drag-and-drop and can use any sub-processes as well as generate process maps. viflow uses Microsoft® Visio and, together with a relational database, forms the basis for your intelligent and agile process management. You can adapt the layout to your corporate design very individually and simply with graphic and format templates.

Detailing processes with viflow

Detailing process steps

The central data maintenance of viflow enables you to work efficiently and ensures an agile management system without inactive members – changes are adopted in the entire process model. Whether classic tree structure, organisation chart or folder view – you bring your own order into the process model with the structuring options of viflow. Numerous import and export functions also offer flexible handling of your data.

Providing management system

To provide your employees and colleagues a process model created with viflow, generate an HTML-based WebModel viewed in the standard browser. Here, too, you have much flexibility with regard to the layout – choose from eight different design variants or adapt the layout to your specifications very particularly. A WebModel can be created in multiple languages, evaluations and reports can be stored and opened directly. The navigation and the display of the properties can be configured in many ways, the content can be personalised and there is the option of displaying only approved processes. This ensures acceptance in the company and thus the success of your management system.

Reporting: Creating reports

The diverse reporting and output options give you either a quick overview or very deep, detailed insights into your process model. For example, viflow provides you with various outputs for processes, information, areas and users as well as for history and shape use. The configurable reports are output directly in viflow, in the browser or in Microsoft Excel. You can open the most important reports directly from the WebModel.
