Workflows make it simple to work together with partners across company boundaries to track progress, accomplish objectives, and execute successful program motions in a repeatable and scalable way.
Establish Repeatable and Scalable Business Processes Aligned to Ecosystem Best Practices
With workflows on WorkSpan, previously disconnected partnering activities across partners are now synchronized, orderly, and accessible, so everyone knows and agrees on where things stand, what’s next, and who’s accountable.
Automatically Align with Your Ecosystem Partners’ Business Processes
On the WorkSpan network, every partner company’s different business rules are mapped together, so partner companies working together are aligned with each other.
For example, different companies often have a different number of steps in their organization’s sales process. WorkSpan’s flexible and powerful business logic maps everyone’s sales steps together, so everyone sees the current status of a shared opportunity in their own organization’s view.
Multi-Company Architecture and Data
Collaborate with Data Integrity
Maintain the integrity of your internal data model on WorkSpan while collaborating with Partners. Multiple company schemas can co-exist on a single object.
Manage Flexible Schema
Extend your company’s schema with near infinite flexibility using WorkSpan templates with embedded JSON to support your business objectives and configure your own company specific fields that can be private to your company or shared with your partners.
Each company on the WorkSpan Multi-Company Architecture can integrate their company-specific data models with one or more of their own internal systems while maintaining the same picklists for important fields such as region, industry, and sales stage.
Access Control and Security
Fully GDPR compliant and SOC2 Type II certified, WorkSpan passes the rigorous security reviews of the top technology companies in the world
Securely Grant Access
Company admins can configure policies to grant automatic access to users on your company’s data in WorkSpan. Audit and update employee access.
Manage access at scale for any number of users in your organization and for partner users added to your objects.
Enforce Data Security
WorkSpan enforces rigorous safeguards to ensure that your confidential data stays that way.
Admins decide data privacy policies and how private fields are handled so Partner Managers can share joint opportunities, sales plans, solutions across your ecosystem with confidence they will not mistakenly divulge secure data.
For example, enable WorkSpan Privacy Mode to hide all private fields when sharing your screen on cadence calls with your partners.
Securely Share Programs
Company admins configure access policies that cascade to linked objects. Centrally administer your user groups (including partners’ teams) at the partner program or plan level and the right access is granted across all objects in that program or plan.
For example, Partner Program members can be automatically granted access to Sales Plans, Solutions, Opportunities and other linked objects to that program.
