A business process for arranging a business trip. You can use it in Contentum BPM system. This component is compatible with Contentum ECM, Contentum CRM, Contentum Projects and Contentum KPI applications and with other solutions.
It does not take much effort to automate business trip activities – from a trip request to reporting the trip results. You only have to specify job positions of the employees, who prepare memos, give out money and participate in organization of the business trip. The system will assign tasks to their executors.
Automation of the business trip process has several benefits. It makes all the actions, necessary for a business trip to take place, clear and consistent. The system will not assign a task of giving out money before the trip is approved and the required documents are prepared. The system will remind to book a hotel room and a flight. The process instance of a particular trip will not be closed until the manager receives a report on the trip.
