Upland Workflow Manager delivers process integrity, visibility and efficiency for Upland’s PowerSteering customers
AUSTIN, Texas (June 1, 2015) – Upland Software, Inc., a leader in cloud-based Enterprise Work Management applications, today announced the release of Upland Workflow Manager (UWM), which orchestrates approvals from within Upland’s project portfolio management application, PowerSteering. Through this advanced workflow capability, business leaders can automate the tedious, and often manual, approval processes required to push forward critical projects and initiatives. UWM allows organizations to operate more efficiently by reducing cycle times of complex, wide-ranging projects, by empowering managers to assess, plan and improve overall performance, and by standardizing and enforcing governance and compliance.
“Organizations have invested heavily in defining lean production processes, but the critical investment going forward will be in the development of lean processes that support faster decision making, quicker responses and greater customer value,” according to Gartner. “This will create a market for a new breed of decision support tools, more collaborative governance and on-demand process/workflows.”*
Upland Workflow Manager enables the seamless routing of approvals across departments and geographic locations. It easily adapts to an organization’s current processes and scales to its evolving needs. One of Upland’s customers, a multi-billion dollar manufacturing company, uses UWM with Upland’s PowerSteering to create, track, prioritize and approve multi-million dollar capital expenditure initiatives across 60+ locations.
“We are excited to further our mission of building best-of-breed applications by integrating portfolio and approval management through Upland Workflow Manager,” said Tim Mattox, President and COO of Upland Software. “Upland Workflow Manager provides a more efficient and streamlined process, allowing Upland’s PowerSteering customers to optimize their project and portfolio level workflows from creation all the way through to approval.”
Additional benefits of Upland Workflow Manager:
- Provides intuitive, graphical workflow designer to build process and project workflows
- Automates approvals, checklists and change management processes
- Measures process efficiency and identifies improvement areas
- Reduces cycle times and potential human errors
Upland Workflow Manager will be demonstrated at the Gartner PPM & IT Governance Summit, taking place June 1-3, 2015 in Grapevine, TX.
