Workflow and Alerts Management
Developed by leading BPM specialists, Orbis, TaskCentre brings people, systems and information together within an organisation through the acquisition, manipulation, dissemination and integration of information; offering a generic approach to automated processes specifically designed to meet precise business requirements.
Star is one of a select band of global OEM’s for TaskCentre which we have deployed around the world in conjunction with our Star Practice Management software. Based on our experience and expertise over several years and the increasing demand for more sophisticated Workflow and Alerts management capability from our Clients, we went on to connect TaskCentre to Microsoft Dynamics NAV.
Although we can provide for certain ‘ready made’ business processes, TaskCentre is a toolset that is very easy for Clients’ own use offering long term practicality and operational advantage.

TaskCentre is based on the central concept of the Task, which performs part or all of a business or technical process triggered by one or more Events. Designed visually in a drag & drop graphical user interface (GUI), each Task can contain any number of interrelated and sequenced Steps, which are created using a wide range of highly-functional Tools. The range of Tools available provides pre-built, flexible and seamless integration with existing information sources, applications, technologies, formats and communication channels, without the need for complex programming.
Tools are arranged into six distinct categories based on the functionality that they provide. These are Event, Input, Format, Output, Execute and General. They expose and consume information to and from each other and can be used in almost limitless combinations and sequences to provide for the business requirement in-hand. Tools are provided as plug-and-play components, so that the breadth of functionality of any implementation can be easily expanded as and when required.
