For the needs of enforcement of information management or speeding up of business, Workflow products is becoming actively used for passing business data. Workflow products of today are capable of realizing not only “Computerization from analog”, e.g. paperless (digitization) or visualization of issue progress, but also “Automation and labor-saving of business processes”, e.g. automatic calculation of consumption tax or automatic generation of invoice PDF. “Questetra BPM Suite” is a Cloud-based Workflow product which you can start running wherever connectable to the Internet. It will widely support your business, not only day-to-day work of desk worker, also telecommuting and teleworking, or even the management of outsourced work.

It has a remarkable feature that you can modify the configurations with simple Drag & Drop configuration. It requires no Programming skills even for designing complicated operations such as ‘Email Auto-transmission’ or ‘Process to Process connection’. Therefore, you can continuously improve a variety of workflows by worker-driven, e.g. Decision-making, Translating, or Complaint handling. In addition, if you have the knowledge of Programming or Scripting, you will be able to expand the frameworks such as advanced data calculation, Invocation of external services, and API access from external apps.

As a feature for monitoring the status of progress, the current Step (individual progress) of each Issue and the number of retention (Heat map) in the entire Issues can be shown on a Process Diagram. From the new version 10.1, icons of the personnel who have handled each Step will be appeared when checking the Individual progress. Although the operator of each Step could be confirmed only in the logs previously, the relation between a step and its operator becomes easier to be recognized visually now.

Also, the graph can be shared with Users without Data Viewer Authorization.
