By automating repetitive tasks, you can get better at handling tasks in a predictive manner and make it easier for users. A very common workflow is to have a review and approval workflow. With the built-flow engine you can send data into parallel or serial workflows, set deadlines with escalation, and when, for example, has gone through a approval put the current status of the document. You can also do tasks such as rendering a PDF with a stamping of the approval information.
