Want to announce something exciting, the Unvired WorkFlow application for SAP is now also available with Apple Watch integration. The new iOS 8 Interactive Notifications are also leveraged for this (https://www.apple.com/in/ios/whats-new/design/). What this means is, for a typical decision-maker app like Unvired WF, you can take decisions without having to open the app. In the Unvired Workflow application, the users can take decisions on workflow documents like Travel Approval, Purchase Order Approval, etc. directly from the notification.
Further, if you are wearing an Apple Watch, then things become super easy. You can make these decisions directly from your Apple Watch as well. Plus, you get a confirmation of your action from the backend system such as SAP right on your Apple Watch or iPhone, so you can be absolutely sure that the workflow was in fact successfully executed.
Let’s cut to the chase and see how this works:
Whenever a new Workflow Document is created in the backend SAP system, your iPhone or iPad is notified by a push notification. If you have holstered your phone and wearing an Apple Watch, the notification directly gets delivered and shows up like this.
Now, you can do one of two things:
1. Tap on one of the decision buttons and that’s it. The decision is made and sent to the backend server for processing. Real simple.
2. Want to have a closer, more detailed look at the workflow, just tap on the notification. The app starts automatically on your iPhone or iPad with the corresponding workflow document and you can take the decision after reviewing the document.
The key takeaway is the speed of decision making which is very critical for any successful enterprise.
