nHanced Workflow

Our nHanced Workflow module provides full workflow creation for the end-user (without an administrator!) and is enhanced with alerting capabilities outside of Dynamics NAV.

The nHanced Workflow module allows Dynamics NAV to have 'triggers', which are easily embedded within field validation.  The trigger then tells Dynamics NAV what workflow to run. It provides some information to affect who gets the workflow and also passes enough information to enable the workflow to be processed by the user, such as the description of goods and the supplier. The workflow module then defines the rest of the details that are required to get a workflow started.

The mind boggles with ideas once you get your head around this, especially if you consider the options available to you when using nOra (our Automated User).

Standard workflows have been built into the Dynamics NAV solution for Purchase Order and Invoice approval, credit limit exceeding when taking order, journal approvals, new customer and supplier creation.

The nHanced workflow module has given us the ultimate functionality and flexibility to create dashboards that show metrics important to our business, not what a template report thinks would be important. We are able to make changes, without the services of a developer, putting us in the driving seat of our IT business environment. Russ Melrose, Interim MD and IT Director at Wilkinson Healthcare

But wait, doesn't Dynamics NAV 2017 and beyond already have inbuilt Workflow?

Yes, it does indeed; approvals and notifications can now be set up in Dynamics NAV.  However, our nHanced NAV extends the out-the-box workflow even further by integrating our document management product, electronics forms capability and our existing extended approvals engine to gain the maximum benefit from the superb new functionality in NAV. Take a look at the table below to see the Workflow Features that are offered by NAV and our nHanced workflow.
