What is Workflow Automation?

workflow is a set of successive actions that lead to the completion of a primary task. This task must be repetitive so that its steps are predictable and can be automated. 

Workflow automation, then, is the process of automating these repetitive tasks to streamline the work process and complete tasks efficiently. Workflow automation platforms utilize customized business rules to notify each employee of when tasks are completed and new tasks are ready to be worked on. Instead of manual work to do each step, workflow automation handles the routine tasks and moves the process along smoothly.

Workflows fully exploit the organizational structure to provide unprecedented process design and action monitoring. This type of automation can be created using Comidor’s No-Code / Low-Code and Hyper-automation platform, which combines Business Process Management (BPM), RPA, AI/ML, and workflow management. Through Workflow Designer, you can navigate and modify existing processes or create a new workflow using BPMN 2.0 with drag-and-drop functionality.

Design Workflow Patterns

The BPMN 2.0 Comidor Workflow Designer is used to visualize all types of business processes easily. 

  • Attach workflows to any process and facilitate road-mapping business processes 
  • Apply role-based rights and rules to ensure that the right people with the proper guidelines participate in a process 
  • Add gateways and conditional paths to determine the process flow 
  • Include scripts to the workflow design with the Shell Command component 
  • Use RESTful Web Service workflow components and connect your system with other apps and tools 
  • Set workflow controls and policies and decide what actions are required before and after any workflow task 
  • Set task escalations to automatically initiate actions, send notifications and emails when certain conditions are met 
  • Export and transfer BPMN 2.0 documents

Build Fully Customizable Forms with the Form Designer

  • Use forms in processes and activities 
  • Design your form easily, with drag-n-drop of fields, and group them within sections 
  • Add multiple Columns, Paragraphs, and Styles inside a form 
  • Create “read-only,” “read/write,” mandatory or optional fields inside forms 
  • Set desired properties to each user field like applying pattern and pattern error messages 
  • Hide sensitive information which should be displayed only for certain users, roles, or groups in a workflow 
  • Add a script within a form 
  • Hide or show fields inside forms when certain conditions are met with the fields rule functionality

Create and run workflow simulations

  • Perform testing and optimize your processes with the Workflow Simulator 
  • Pilot different scenarios and make predictions about the results of your processes 
  • Simulate your processes and visualize the simulation with analytics 
  • Prevent errors that would not be identified in the initial steps of the workflow design process

Power your workflow automation with a central Workflow Repository

  • Access the workflow repository, and get an overview of all workflow designs/processes in a table format, grouped per category 
  • Add process mapping in HTML, including enriched text and pictures to provide general instructions and information (process designers only) 
  • Access and export the full workflow design and architecture (Business Process document) including all components, resources, process owner, and stakeholders involved (all users) 
  • Inform users about each workflow stage with the documentation guide (Business Process Guidelines) that Comidor automatically generates

Manage changes carefully with Workflow Change Management

  • Create and schedule version activation on specific dates 
  • Deactivate, modify, and delete existing versions 
  • Track changes applied in specific tasks of the workflow within the Audit Trail Log 
  • Compare different versions of the same workflow in the Compare Versions tab

The Benefits of Workflow Automation

In addition to streamlining repetitive tasks, automating your workflow provides countless other benefits to your entire company. These benefits include:

Reduced errors

Human error is natural in the workplace, but sometimes these errors can be costly. Automating workflow processes can reduce these human errors and produce higher-quality results.

Increased collaboration

Using the customizable notifications option, your team can easily communicate about tasks and share information on one platform.

Improved customer satisfaction

Higher-quality results lead to happier customers.

Decreased costs per project

You no longer are spending additional money to cover the costs of repetitive tasks, giving you a chance to reallocate your budget to higher priority costs.

Report accuracy

Since the workflow automation platform can access and analyze data beyond what a human could, you’ll receive more accurate and detailed reports about your company’s progress.

Transparent process improvement

With more accurate reports, you can clearly see where current workflow processes aren’t working and quickly brainstorm solutions to these problems.
