Workflow Design

As University business processes move away from paper-based forms and emailed approvals, there is a growing need for online workflow and document management solutions that fit the disparate needs and resources of various University schools, centers, and central units.

Features and Benefits

Northwestern IT Workflow Services assists University departments with:

  • Identifying workflow issues or improvements
  • Introducing workflow tools
  • Providing workflow best practices
  • Guiding the transformation of manual (paper-based) workflows to tool-based workflows
  • Analyzing new workflows for gaps and improvements
  • Determining final training and documentation needs

We will help you define your input form as well as any workflow steps associated with that form, such as approvals. Once your workflow is defined, we can also help get you started with one of two recommended tools that you can use to build your design.
