ProcessMaker is an open-source BPM solution that facilitates the creation of ad hoc workflows for organizations large or small. Many organizations find internal processes difficult to control and this can be for a multitude of reasons – too much paperwork, time lost in approval stages or simply because users eventually find their own method of following the process. When we need to create ad hoc workflows, one thing organizations don’t want to do is spend valuable time installing, configuring and managing complex systems that are open-ended enough to allow the users to go back to their old habits. With ProcessMaker, you can create ad hoc workflows quickly and easily with no coding, no fuss and no risk that parts of your ad hoc workflow will be skipped by the end-user.
ProcessMaker features a simple drag and drop interface for the design of your ad hoc workflows. It is web-based and requires no client installation for the user's workstations. The user interaction with your ad hoc workflows is form-based and comes with a host of permissions and settings to lock down the process and ensure that your users follow it step by step – all the while ensuring that your process is automated and efficient. Your ad hoc workflows can be as simple or complex as you wish – from simple expense reports to change management. ProcessMaker ad hoc workflows can even be created to be similar to your existing processes by integrating with 3rd party applications (SugarCRM, Outlook, Sharepoint, KnowledgeTree and more) and even send custom emails relaying the data of your ad hoc workflows and ensuring that everyone is kept updated with each step.
