With many traditional systems the processes for modifying data are hard coded and require reprogramming in case processes change. With the Axxerion workflow technology you can interactively design and modify these processes in a graphical environment. The underlying mathematical foundation is Petri Net technology, which enables a formal specification of processes using places, tasks and transitions.
Axxerion offers a comprehensive and multi-tiered security model based on industry standard best practices. Every user is assigned to one or more user groups. The user groups specify the default access, such as 'full', 'view' or 'none'. These permissions can be refined for individual fields, functions, objects or folders. There are various tools for the administrator to quickly view and modify access rights per module.
The user interface is based on the look-and-feel of standard office productivity software such as Access or Outlook. A lot of effort has gone into facilitating fast data entry and viewing by capitalizing on productivity features supported by web browsers. The screens include an online help button that displays a page with a short description of all functions for that page. The interface can be simplified for novice or occasional users by turning off fields or functions.
One of the most important requirements for an enterprise system is the ability to quickly create reports. Axxerion has a large number of standard reports for each module. It is also possible to create your own reports. The reports can be viewed directly in the browser and can be converted to PDF so that they can be downloaded and printed. It is also possible to import a report in Microsoft Excel for further analysis.
Every organization has legacy information such as lists with persons, employees or assets. With the import module you can quickly import information using a web browser. After a data file has been uploaded you can link the information to objects and fields in Axxerion. This function can be used for importing new information and for updating existing information.
Because Axxerion is a native J2EE application it runs on any platform that supports Java including Windows, Linux and Solaris. The system includes various logical components including a web/application server, a database server, an imaging server, a document conversion server and a file storage. All components interact via the HTTP protocol and can run on different platforms without the need for any platform-specific file sharing software.
