What Are The Different Types Of Workflow Apps

From cloud storage to process automation and time management, there is an app for literally any work task you can think of.

Task Management

Just as useful for rank-and-file workers as it is for managers. These allow you to track project activity and see which team members are working on what. Plus, task management apps significantly reduce the time spent on checking steps with team members and online chats.

Workflow Automation

Automating time-consuming tasks is an important step towards increasing productivity. From invoicing to generating purchase orders, the less time employees have to spend on routines like filling out paperwork, the more time they can spend on more important tasks.

Document Management

These apps are designed to simplify the process of searching and interacting with work documents. They guarantee access to files regardless of time or location, and save valuable time that can be spent on more productive tasks.

Time Management

Time management apps allow you to focus on critical tasks, plan your working hours, and track results. It’s the perfect solution for those who frequently find themselves wondering where half the day went.

Team Communication

Organize team communication without having to jump from messenger to messenger or waste time sending files and emails. You can schedule meetings with the click of a button.

Taking Notes

Make to-do lists, create and store text and voice notes, videos, and photos. These apps allow you to structure information, quickly find important records, and share them with colleagues.

7 Features Every Workflow App Should Have

Project Templates

Project templates allow you customize your workflow in a matter of minutes. Simply add your project information, select the tasks you’ve prepared, and get to work.

Task Automation

This allows you to focus your efforts on the important instead of the routine and repetitive. Automation saves time and significantly increases workflow efficiency.

Workflow Visualization

This can be used for just-in-time manufacturing, task timelines displayed in chronological order, lists of grouped tasks, or Gantt charts, which are perfect for projects that use the Waterfall Model. Visualization helps project managers quickly identify potential problems and manage workflow more effectively. Plus, it increases transparency among team members.

Group Chat

Corporate chats allow a large number of people to communicate at the same time. Each participant’s messages can be seen by all other users. The chat feature can also be used for electronic document management and the ability to add commentary on projects without reliance on third-party resources like instant messengers or e-mail.

Budget and Resource Management

Many workflows are directly dependent on available resources and budgets. These apps give the user the ability to track the reallocation of funds and resources, as well as identify and resolve shortage issues at an early stage.

Third-Party App Integration

Integration with CRM systems, social media, software development platforms and other third-party applications allows for significant expansion of functionality.


Settings give users the ability to customize their projects by adding comments, titles, descriptions, checklists, files, images, and assigning specific tasks to specific team members. Detailed customization makes task management more effective.

Effective Ways to Monetize Workflow Apps

In-App Advertising

The easiest and most intuitive way to monetize popular work process apps with large audiences. Alternatively, users can block ads by purchasing the premium version.

Paid Apps

Users pay once to download the app, after which access is unlimited. This isn’t the most effective way to monetize given the high level of competition from free and freemium apps.


The app's basic features are available for free, while additional, advanced functionality must be purchased. For example, task lists can be extended, dashboard limits removed, sharing capability become more fine-tuned, etc.


The app is free to use, but functionality is either limited or temporary. That is, until the user decides to purchase the paid version.

Workflow Automation Trends & Statistics

According to a report by Forrester Consulting, 97% of organizations that still perform all of their operations manually report negative impacts on employee productivity. This speaks volumes about the enormous potential for productivity apps. It certainly indicates that demand for this category will only continue to grow in the coming years.
