Generate, and integrate, complex, multi-dimensional workflows

Integrate complex workflows such as changeovers, inspections, inventory tracking, maintenance work orders, and shift changes using Workflows, Webalo's industry-standard workflow capability.

Webalo defines a holistic approach to digitizing the workplace, and empowering the frontline workforce, by providing a full platform for defining workflows, creating forms and reports, and integrating with various industry data sources. Workflows can be started manually or by external notifications, and workers are notified for the upcoming task in the workflow. Webalo workflows links to enterprise and industrial systems and each workflow step can launch associated forms, checklists or reports and update core systems. Each workflow step can be assigned to users or groups, from which an individual user can claim and start the tasks at runtime.

Workflows includes Workflow Designer that supports a BPMN-standard workflow methodology that will be familiar to process engineers, subject matter experts and other business technologists, so that they can easily design their workflows and integrate them with the digitized forms created with the Forms module.

Workflows also includes the Workflow Engine which provides the run-time execution environment for workflows, maintaining a real-time state of all workforce processes. It supports advanced, multi-dimensional workflows, where the workflow steps can also read and write data from any Webalo-connected data source.

Window into workforce and general performance activity

Visualize real-time workforce activity data, as well as general performance data from machine and other equipment/ assets in the plant, warehouse or broader supply chain. Information is available immediately, enabling supervisors and management to tune, optimize operations in real-time.

Visualization brings the entire process into focus, with a broad selection of charts, dashboards, KPI monitors and reports.
