Recently, Workflow products are becoming actively used for passing business data. Using these Workflow products, a variety of operational efficiency Business improvement has been achieved, i.e. Paperless, Visualization of Operational progress, or even Auto-calculating of Consumption Tax and Auto-generation of Invoice PDF’. “Questetra BPM Suite” is a Cloud-based Workflow product which you can start running wherever connectible to the Internet. It will widely support Teleworking also.
It has a great feature that you can modify the configurations with easy Drag & Drop configuration. It requires no Programming skills even for setting Automated processing such as ‘Email Auto-transmission’ or ‘Process to Process connection’. Therefore, you can continuously improve complicated business process by worker-driven, e.g. Decision-making, Translating, or Complaint handling. In addition, with the knowledge of Programming or Scripting, you can expand frameworks for Automated Data Processing or IoT connection using APIs.

With this feature, you can filter those Numeric data and number of Issues which has flowed on Workflow, and summarize the result in a Chart. e.g. Line Chart of ‘Weekly Estimate amount’ which shows the total price of the approved estimate in ‘Estimate flow’; Bar Chart of ‘Type of Question and its Number’ which shows the Types of Questions and its number in ‘Inquiry flow’. (Filtering Chart)

There are various improvements other than Filtering Chart in v10.0.

In setting rules on each Step, you can set up automatic ‘terminate’ and ‘turn around to Exception flow’, instead of previous behavior at the deadline i.e. ‘Alerting’ or ‘End’. (BPMN Timer Boundary Event)
Previously, a Looping structure which consists of only Auto-processing had not been allowed. Now you can compose Looping with Auto-processing only, such as ‘Email Transmission’ (Event element) and ‘Script processing’ (Service Task element). However, it will become an error if exceeding 500 steps before all the process is finished.
You will be able to display the graphs that are generated by each function in one screen, i.e. Number of processed and Total number of Issues, etc.
It became to support more communication methods for Auto-request processing to external system (OAuth 2.0).

*Please see our Release note for the detail of New Features:

Our target is Improvement on Business Process itself to meet the changes of business environment, on monitoring the visualized operational progress. Modeling of Business flow and designing Data items is not an easy thing to do. We will enhance the features to understand the operational progress and processing performance easier, to support worker-driven business improvement.
