Improve efficiency across all aspects of your media business with the implementation of a workflow environment that delivers tangible benefits in the creation, preparation, management and delivery of media content.
Mediaflex-UMS Workflow BPM (Business Process Management) is designed to promote effective and efficient use of resources and media whilst delivering a highly flexible, innovative and integrated platform for collaborative media business management. It provides an operational environment to carry out media processes as well as a management environment for monitoring.
The intuitive and flexible graphical workflow designer needs low to no training and eliminates the need for specialist development staff to script or modify workflows. It puts you back in control of your operation.
The simple drag-and-drop interface lets in-house staff easily create, clone, and edit workflows - even while they are running. There’s no need to reboot the system to bring new workflows online - all changes are available immediately and there are no restrictions on the number or complexity of workflows. 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.
Each job can be tracked via dynamic status-driven schedules and updates appear in near real time on every screen as users carry out their roles. Messages (email, SMS, on-screen etc.) can be triggered and sent when specific events occur during a job.
