What is Workflow Management?

Workflow is defined as a process or set of processes that take a work task from start to finish. The workflow management, then, is the organizing of all the business processes along with the management of all interactions and tasks to complete that workflow. Workflow management software, however, helps automate these processes. It can comprise several complicated business processes- everything from workflow approvals and procurement to manufacturing lines, to vendor management and customer service.
