You can also easily develop your own modules and integrate them with your OrchardCollaboration portal.

By extending the original workflow engine with custom / necessary activities, OrchardCollaboration provides a simple to use mechanism to automate the process & request management. It helps you create your own specific workflows suitable for your business in minutes.
