OnBase Mobile Content Management and Workflow
OnBase users are truly freed from their workstation. OnBase makes your content available to the people who need it wherever they are from almost any device. The OnBase mobile modules allow users to participate in any workflow process in addition to searching and viewing documents, creating new eForms to initiate workflows as well as uploading and indexing documents.
Quick access to the workflow keeps important documents and tasks moving through the system, regardless of where the approver is. OnBase Mobile takes workflow and content management global with decisions happening in seconds instead of hours or days. Users can now perform familiar or repetitive tasks without accessing the full workflow interface. Your existing mobile device investments can be easily leveraged with out-of-the-box OnBase access.
OnBase Mobile talks in real time with the OnBase application and provides users with all the tools (data, tasks and documents) required to process any transaction or document. The documents and data are secure versus being unsecured email attachments thus enforcing the security just as if the user was in the standard OnBase interface.
OnBase takes mobility a step further, providing offline access to those who need it. Take documents like contracts, process documentation and employee handbooks offline on your iPad to read when you have the time, without relying on an internet or network connection. With the OnBase Briefcase, field workers have access to all the information they need, without any connection back to the office. They can retrieve, create and update documents, complete forms and upload photos all while offline. Once they’re back online, OnBase automatically synchronizes and reconciles all changes so your information stays up to date.
Mobility isn’t only about having quick access to information while on the go – it’s also important that this same information is instantly accessible when users are back in the office. OnBase seamlessly integrates the same processes, documents and data with the applications they use most, whether that’s Microsoft Outlook, the ERP system or any line of business application. When a mobile worker lays down their device and log on to the network and the applications they use every day, they can pick up right where they left off. Wherever you work – in the office, onsite or on a plane – OnBase comes with you, allowing work to continue no matter where you are.
