ActionBase 6.1 helps enterprises maintain corporate governance and security with a more comprehensive but easy-to-use system to help achieve operational and organizational excellence.
Tel Aviv, Israel (PRWEB) September 28, 2009
ActionBase a leading provider of Human Process Management Solutions (HPMS), today announced ActionBase 6.1, a new advancement that provides enterprise "wave" collaborative functionality while maintaining corporate governance, an audit trail and security - all within Microsoft Outlook and Office applications. ActionBase 6.1 combines process management and collaboration capabilities with robust authentication, access control and end-to-end process tracking, as well as a system of record that links content and its context.
ActionBase turns regular e-mail into business-class e-mail in which all communication and content is located under a one-line item in one's inbox. In this wave of communication, all process stakeholders and participants in a discussion thread share the same content, can ask questions, respond and comment or add files instead of scattering feedback across different e-mail messages in the traditional paradigm. ActionBase 6.1 incorporates all actions that were initiated subsequently by any user involved in the process.
ActionBase 6.1 provides a hierarchy model for business processes, which ensures process-related discussions remain associated with their original context, significantly reducing e-mail overload. ActionMail (ActionBase's collaborative e-mail) simplifies process-related search and follow-up by providing end-to-end process visibility, including all related attachments and history, as well as a full audit trail and change history of all changes made throughout the interaction between the parties involved. The system provides a reporting mechanism as well as real-time process information. These capabilities make the benefits of wave functionality available to enterprises within their standard Microsoft Outlook and Office - providing the business ability to manage e-mail based processes through an enterprise- ready platform that leverages existing Microsoft investments, including SharePoint.
ActionBase expanded its ActionDoc (ActionBase's action-driven Word documents) functionality to turn plain Word documents to executable working documents with a real-time graphical status view over the whole process. Now, ActionBase enterprise users can follow not only the thread of a discussion but all actions that were initiated subsequently by any user involved in the process. ActionBase 6.1 also helps enterprises increase regulatory compliance.
"The ability to have a real-time, bird's-eye view and drill-down capabilities from Microsoft Office applications allows process stakeholders to view the big picture without compromising collaborative functionality and consolidating all relevant process items into one coherent process view - everything enterprises need," said Eyal Maor, CEO of ActionBase. "ActionBase 6.1 helps enterprises maintain corporate governance and security with a more comprehensive but easy-to-use system to help achieve operational and organizational excellence."
The system provides an immediate benefit for a wave of collaboration that leverages existing Microsoft investments: Microsoft Outlook, Office and SharePoint. In addition, ActionBase 6.1 allows users to collaborate with other e-mail systems and outside parties, but still maintain all relevant data in one process view in order to keep the "wave" going and see through a whole process end-to-end.
