RALEIGH, N.C., Dec. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- KnowledgeTree, the first company to get 'insight out' of business content, today announced a powerful toolset that lets business users build workflows to review and approve important content. Sales proposals, marketing collateral and other materials must be authorized by the correct teams. But current approaches depend on lengthy development cycles to construct and customize business processes in heavyweight tools.
With KnowledgeTree's intuitive graphical interface, sales, marketing and other teams can easily create and customize content approval workflows without IT or developer support. In seconds, they can build workflows, apply security settings, configure notifications, and more. Plus, as business needs change, it's simple to quickly adjust workflows to reflect new requirements.
A recent survey of 1,400 business users revealed that 61 percent of users find it difficult for teams to determine if a document has been authorized. And 69 percent of documents need to be reevaluated after they've been approved. This is especially true for compliance-related documents, where audit trails are critical. KnowledgeTree's workflow management tools solve all of these challenges.
KnowledgeTree's workflow management capabilities allow teams to:
- Approve Content Quickly: Streamline the review and approval of sales and marketing materials – with processes that are 33% more efficient.
- Stay On Top of Changing Content: Receive alerts on proposal deadlines, contract renewals and other important events. Notify teams to review or adjust content on a specific date and receive real-time alerts when mission-critical documents change.
- Get Insight into Inefficient Processes: Identify bottlenecks, adjust processes and accelerate document-based processes – without developer intervention.
"Effective workflows can cut one-third of the time and effort required to get content authorized and into use. So these tools need to be easy for business professionals to use," said KnowledgeTree's chief executive officer, Daniel Chalef. "The new interface empowers teams to control their content-led processes, manage deadlines and get content approved efficiently."
The graphical workflow functionality is immediately available and included at no additional charge to KnowledgeTree subscribers. A free trial allows teams to start. To learn more, visit www.knowledgetree.com.
