  • Workflow is a general term applied to the ability to move images, files, documents, etc., from workstation to workstation, using specific business rules for review, approvals, authorization, data entry, data editing, and task assignment. Business processes that are accomplished by moving paper can now be managed electronically—from the very beginning to final disposition. The delays normally associated with hard-copy documents and manual processing can be minimized with workflow systems.
