Mobile devices play a key role in reducing the gap between the physical and the digital world. The use of automatic identification capabilities can improve user participation in business processes where physical elements are involved (Smart Workflows). However, the solutions available today for connecting the physical world with the digital world lack the flexibility required to cope with the specific requirements of smart workflows. Each participant in a workflow has a different perspective on the physical elements of his/her surroundings. We provide a software architecture for the development of smart workflows that support different perspectives, labeling technologies and mobile platforms. Tool support is provided in order to automate the development process. An experiment was conducted to evaluate the suitability of the platform to support business processes in a labelled environment.
