Manage your processes efficiently with RayFlow

RayFlow is a workflow management solution that collects and provides required information via tasks and phases, tailored to project needs of any complexity level. It operates as joining link between teams and their tools. RayFlow controls and observes the workflow for the overall Application Lifecycle: From license management to deployment, from application owners up to project managers and external stakeholders.

This workflow management solution provides a simple yet flexible administration and operation of projects – for one or more clients at a time. Essential information, such as the current task status, SLAs, categories, etc., is clearly structured and easily accessible within each phase. The invented global search additionally improves the direct lookup of specific tasks.

“Thanks to the introduction of Raynet solutions, we were able to optimize our software packaging and provisioning processes in a very short time and effectively bring together people from different continents and time zones

If we had known how much Raynet’s product solutions RayPack Studio and RayFlow support all our processes, we would have used them much earlier”. 

Sebastian Belzer, Service Delivery Manager EU & AP of Aleris

Configuration – Maximal Flexibility

RayFlow is deliberately designed for maximal flexibility in order to be able to grow beyond the origins of packaging factory process management and to adapt behavior and control structures to the needs of any business process. The real stunt is not the provision of flexibility itself, but rather embedding it into a user interface that convinces operators and administrators likewise and allows them to interact intuitively.

A workflow management tool does not only have to provide a decent interface for the actual task execution within the flow, but at the same time requires an elaborated administrative environment. In this regard, RayFlow incorporates a web interface that is divided into three primary areas of activity: Management, Administration, Configuration.

Depending on the individual field of operation and responsibility, users have privileges to create new user profiles, generate reports, and to create and configure new projects – regarding SLA conditions, settings of the project specific user interface, and the actual phase flow.

Due to the ability to manage users and their access rights, data visibility, and notifications across project boundaries, RayFlow is a tool that adjusts effortlessly to the requirements of any given case.

Tracking – High Level Transparency

By using the tracking feature, users are able to keep an overview of the current status of project tasks and to assess the status of one specific task as well. Taking over a task or assigning it to another user is a one-click activity – assuming that the user profile is equipped with the required privileges for the latter feature.

  • Targeted search for the current status of a task
  • Easy task handling or assignment to other employees
  • Significantly facilitates the detailed and comprehensive tracking of each package
  • Overview also for management level
  • Ensuring a successful project

Reporting

  • Comprehensive reporting capabilities- from visual graphs to detailed table views
  • Easy to consolidate and provide the data and information you need
  • Exportable to various file formats, e.g. PDF, Excel or image formats

Notifications – Stay up to date

Staying up to date has never been this easy and convenient. It is a matter of a few clicks to create notifications for single users or user groups. Intelligent filters are the base for the definition of conditional statements that control which user will be informed about what event. This might be a change to the status of a task within a specific phase, modifications on data fields, or any other event that has been defined within a project workflow.

Emails sent as notifications are drawn on templates, which vary based upon the triggering event. Templates are easily adjustable directly from within the RayFlow user interface for a project with the built-in HTML Editor. Applying your corporate design on notification templates is achievable with minimal effort.

RayFlow operates modularly

In fact, there is an inevitable trigger for the intensive contact with a vast variety of tools and system environments: the conceptual keynote that RayFlow is the controlling backbone of business processes. A workflow management system does not only have to communicate and interact with a heterogeneous environment, but has to master this in a way that emphasizes on aspects such as security and stability. Even though the tools of the RaySuite product family are optimized to work best in conjunction with each other, the RayFlow data service fully covers 3rd party tool integration as well.

Best Practice Approach

RayFlow makes it easy for you to implement the latest best practice approaches. With role-based access, implementation according to ITIL, comprehensive reporting capabilities, audit, and configurable process phases, which all allow simple and reliable SLA management, Ray Flow’s functionalities and handling are simply unique.

RayFlow is more than a mere interface between applications, as it is a platform for teamwork and cooperation at the very same time.
