Axiell Flow is a workflow automation tool designed to ensure efficiency and consistency around work with the collection.
Axiell Flow can be used to streamline work at a variety of institutions including museums, archives, film institutes, galleries, heritage sites, corporate archives, universities, religious institutions, schools and private collectors. Anyone who is managing a collection of historical, cultural or scientific significance can benefit from Axiell Flow.
Axiell Flow is a web-accessible solution that works through an up-to-date browser. An internet connection is also required.
Axiell Flow is a SaaS (software as a service) solution and is therefore purchasable via a subscription package. Request a demo of Axiell Flow to learn more about package options and pricing.
The subscription model for Axiell Flow includes the user licence. It does not take up Axiell Collections or EMu user licences.
The base subscription of Axiell Flow includes the software, a library of template workflows, access for a team of concurrent users, and access to the Forms designer. Template workflows include object entry, acquisition and accessioning, cataloguing objects, object location change, condition checks, incoming and outgoing loans, transportation, and digitisation.

Everything is customisable within Axiell Flow! Fields visible in Axiell Flow forms can be customised through the Axiell Flow form designer. If you want to capture data in a new field, that modification can be done by first creating the new field within your CMS. Once the field is created, it can be used in an Axiell Flow form.
Activities or workflows can be created and modified using an application called Flowable Modeler. Flowable is an open source BPMN engine which Axiell Flow utilises at the core of the product.
No, Axiell Move has functionality not provided by Axiell Flow, including bar code scanning and offline use.
No, Sapphire was designed as a rapid data entry tool with specific functionality that is different to Axiell Flow.
Axiell Flow doesn’t store any collections data. All data is maintained inside the CMS and is read and written back to the CMS in real time through Axiell Flow. Axiell Flow only obtains the data required for the current task and only writes back what is needed to update any records.
We are adding reporting functionality in an upcoming release. Initially via APIs that can export data to a third-party analytics tool, and eventually through native reporting dashboards that will show use and activity across Axiell Flow.
Yes! Users can select tasks from an unassigned task pool that is set up by team. For example, the digitisation team will see a list of all unassigned digitisation tasks. Once a user claims a task, that task is only visible to them.
We are in the process of developing a manager view that will allow managers to see all tasks assigned to team members and reassign tasks to different team members.
Yes! In the BPMN backend, you can set up a parent workflow which can be used to start one or more child workflows. Depending on your needs, parameters can be put in place to ensure that the parent workflow doesn’t progress until all the child workflows have finished successfully.
Axiell Flow has an API that can be used to initiate workflows and pass data from external requests (eg. A form on your website) into the workflow. The API can be used to pass data from the form to Axiell Flow and initiate a workflow based on that data.
Yes! An Axiell Flow Shim API will be installed alongside your CMS. The Shim API is used to convert Axiell Flow requests into something that your CMS will understand. It is simply an API layer used to communicate with the CMS to obtain data and information.
Currently we are developing functionality to send email alerts about tasks.
You can set required fields on every form that limit the user’s ability to proceed if information is missing or improperly formatted (eg. DD/MM/YY versus MM/DD/YY).
No, not at this time. Since Axiell Flow does not store data, it requires a real time connection to your CMS via the Internet.
There are regular monthly newsletters for customers which include availability of new software versions, as well as event and webinar invitations, community news, tips and blogs and more.
Software updates and manuals are regularly updated and can be accessed from the support page.
Our customers are given access to a portal where users can submit ideas for development of the software. Other users, can vote for existing ideas and add new ones, and you can watch the status of the idea to see if it has been moved forwards onto our software roadmap or ready for release. This allows our community to drive the development of the things they care most about.
