Intra-department Document Approval Flow
PPM allows the user to define multi-stage document approval flow and with multiple steps in each stage. PPM also allows the user to specify what stages and steps will be executed in parallel and what stages and steps will be executed in serial. The user can also define when an approver rejects the document, the re-approval will start from the beginning or the rejection point.
Interdepartmental and Inter-company Document Approval Flow
Similar to the intra-department document approval flow, the user can define interdepartmental and inter-company document approval flow. Users from different departments and companies can do approval via login, email or smart phone.
Document and Knowledge Management
PPM provides a thorough system to manage documents by putting them in different libraries and files, allowing users to keep files in order and compile them into indices. PPM also offers a mechanism for the users to check in, check out and control document versions. This document management system can be used both as a separate module and as a joint one connected with other modules. For example, it allows a connected library to be created automatically when adding a new contract or a new project by relevant policy settings, further continuing to use the same file settings of the pre-defined library templates. Moreover, it supports to instantly move the documents from any contract or any project into a library and the relevant document link of the contract or the project will automatically be updated.
PPM also supports the function of classifying knowledge, allowing users to compile documents into indices and search for them by knowledge classifications, which can be pre-defined in enterprise policies.
