Mensagem:  "how it works" is better.

It's better to use vocabulary that occurs more often in English spoken by native speakers.

Top companies, such as Fedex, American Express, Amazon, Hilton, use the sentence "how it works" in their marketing materials. 

If think that "how it operates" sounds better to explain how a machine runs, but for a company program or website option I believe people would just say "how it works".
