C.C.B. empowers you to use your data cards to define your approvers, and allow your selected users to vote. Notifications are automatically routed to the selected approvers. Observers can optionally comment while the file awaits approval, to better inform the approvers during the process. Using the HawkWare C.C.B. shifts the often complex set of approvers from the workflow states and transitions, where they must work for all files moving through that workflow, to the files themselves. This often simplifies the structure and rules of the workflow, allow broader use. Since your Enterprise PDM data cards are already file type and vault location-dependent, they can now easily bear the burden of assigning file-specific approvers.
