Process innovation is driven by many people: employees, customers and suppliers. If you want to take advantage of your full innovation potential, you should include all these people into process design. They do not need extensive training in modeling languages. Signavio’s discussion functionality will quickly enable them to contribute.
In Signavio, there are several ways that enable collaborators to contribute to your business process and business decision landscape.
Fellow modelers in your workspace can by default edit and comment on all diagrams in the workspace’s Shared documents folder. Yet, you can invite modelers to edit to call attention to a diagram. They can also preview diagrams in the Collaboration Hub, which also provides a reader-friendly diagram presentation, with its full screen view and detailed documentation.
Stakeholders who do not have access to your workspace can be invited to comment on diagrams. To see diagrams and to be able to comment, the stakeholders click a link they receive by email. The modeler simply needs to send an invitation from the Signavio Explorer’s Share menu to grant access. For external persons, the link acts as a key to the Collaboration Hub where unregistered stakeholders can see and comment on diagrams. Certificate-based Collaboration Hub users can additionally see all published diagrams of the corresponding workspace in the folder tree on the left.
Exporting diagrams and sharing, saving or printing them is another collaborative option for modelers. This way, diagrams can be traded between Signavio workspaces (SGX) and Signavio and other modeling softwares (BPMN 2.0 conform XML), saved on computers and sent by email (PDF, SVG or PNG) or printed on paper.
Embedding diagrams in websites or Microsoft SharePoint-based systems is another way of collaborating for more advanced users.
