Everything you need to build integrated, feature-rich, web-based applications — without programming.
Graphical Flowchart Design
With JobRouter Designer, JobRouter provides a graphical user interface (GUI) to display and compose complete web-based workflow applications. You can design and edit individual workflows in the Designer's graphical flowchart.
In the the descriptions that follow, you will see how JobRouter processes are built and how you can model your own business practices without needing any knowledge of programming.
Building out your process starts with adding steps. Simply click to select from a menu to add a step to your process.
Easy-to-understand symbols illustrate the function of the different types of steps in your flowhart.
A simple drag-and-drop feature allows you to move your steps around and place them in the order you desire.
The steps themselves can then be edited directly from within the flowchart editor to add forms and business rules to each step.
Link arrows are used for connecting steps and determining the sequence of the steps in your process.
The flowchart displays the flow of your Process and helps you create Forms, define Rules, configure Escalations, and carry out the integrations appropriate to that flow.
Workflow Forms Designer
Forms are an interface between the Workflow system (JobRouter) and the user. Forms provide information to the user and allow the user to work on process data. You can quickly compose Forms using the built-in Forms Designer.
With the integration of document management functions you can make documents available to the user that are needed to process the forms. These documents could be, for example, an invoice whose particulars are being reviewed and approved or rejected in the form by the user. The process could be designed to display the invoice, a goods received document, the vendor quote and even a copy of your vendor contract. JobRouter forms can be configured to display everything that your user might need to make a decision.
A large variety of form elements are available for selection by the user for inclusion in the forms, thus allowing the user to configure the form according to his or her wishes. Typical elements include text field and text areas, lists, radio-boxes, check-boxes, buttons, attachments, files, images, links, dates and many, many more!
Escalation Rules Designer
JobRouter makes it easy to use Process Escalation to specify the overall Process duration as well as the amount of time allowed for processing individual Steps.
The optional JobTimer add-on module allows you to define a variety of escalations and actions in your Process. Once the durations are defined for your overall process and steps, you then specify what should happen when a certain escalation point is reached in order to prevent an interruption in the Process.

Simulation and Testing
As soon as your new business process has been designed it’s ready for testing with the built-in JobRouter Simulator.
As a process designer you want to move through the process in simulation mode, one process step after the other. That way you can easily follow all of the process data and monitor the defined business rules. Simulation testing is a very simple way to make sure that every function and every business rule of your new business process is working as intended.
Designing, testing, and simulation are all built into the JobRouter platform. These functions allow for fast implementation of even the most complex processes within a functioning workflow, making it clearly superior to significantly more cost-intensive products available on the market.
