Axosoft lets users have extremely fine-grained control over workflows and by extension, the whole lifecycle of each task. Each step in a workflow can be named and you can choose which fields are updated when a step is complete. This way you can automatically tweak tasks as they progress (you can set tasks to belong to different users once a step is complete, you can even change workflows for a task if a certain step is taken).
