Workflow's unique intuitive and flexible graphical designer eliminates the need for specialist development staff to script or modify workflow processes. It puts the customer back in control of their operation. 

The dynamic status-driven schedule enables users to track the progress of each job as it flows through the organisation. Updates appear in near real time on every screen as users and operators carry out their roles. Messages (email, SMS, on-screen etc.) can be triggered to be sent when specific events occur during the progress of the job.

TMD’s workflow designer lets you build your own software defined workflows without needing to employ software programmers or purchase professional services. It’s simple, intuitive drag and drop interface lets you easily create new workflows, clone and edit existing workflows and even edit workflows while they are running. There’s no need to reboot the system to bring new workflows online, all changes are available immediately. Easily configured business rules, based on metadata values, can be built into any workflow allowing the software to decide which path a piece of media follows as it runs through a workflow. With no restrictions on the number of workflows or the devices to be controlled, Mediaflex-UMS has the most sophisticated, agile workflow solution in it class.
