Workflow & Approvals
Have you ever wanted to define business process activities, the staff involved, and how and when information flows from person to person within Deltek Costpoint?
Our Costpoint Workflow process improvement allows customers to apply workflows to virtually any business process that impacts the accounting, contracts, purchasing, or human resources organizations; including setting up contracts, hiring employees, approving purchase orders, and month-end close procedures.
One of the most important aspects of the Costpoint Workflow module is the visibility it gives to management. When you initiate or complete business processes using Workflow, there is a historical record of activities. This audit trail allows managers to check the status of the Workflow and examine trends in work productivity. Managers can increase or decrease their internal control over procedures, resolve bottlenecks, redesign workflows, and monitor employee efficiency.
Chances are you probably already have approval processes and routing procedures in place, but Costpoint’s default approval system does not notify the approver when a screen is ready to be approved or offers the flexibility to choose when approval is necessary and when it is not. This can lead to frustration when a decision and/or action is not taken and causes the business to slow or grind to a halt.
Costpoint’s NEW Approval Workflow (WFA) feature allows organizations to create and configure their own unique approval workflow process across multiple screens using rules based on any existing Costpoint function. This powerful feature enables organizations to configure their Costpoint system to support their individual business strategy and goals.
