The key features of WorkflowMax could be categorized into seven main headings - Lead/Client Management, Quoting, Time & Expense, Collaboration, Orders & Invoicing, Document Management, and Reporting. The software includes a Sales Pipeline Management Dashboard to see which employees are bringing in leads and how many have been won that month. With WorkflowMax quoting tools you can create customizable quotes to match your industry and brand, these automatically populate with lead data from the system. Once quotes are approved, the app automatically transforms them into jobs.

Another key feature of WorkflowMax is its ability to track the time and costs associated with a job. The software offers time tracking tools, time sheets, and automatic conversion from time sheets to invoices. You can also see a financial summary of your job through which you can compare estimated costs and quoted costs against actual job costs. WorkflowMax's unique purchase order feature allows you to track purchase orders across multiple projects or jobs. Through the integration with Xero you can raise purchase orders, receive orders in full or in part, and log these automatically in Xero Accounting for payment.
