Process Director

Cloud-based Business Process Management & workflow platform

4.47/5 (19 reviews)

Process Director overview

Process Director is an advanced Business Process Management (BPM) solution with a choice of cloud-based or on-premise deployment. Crucially, the software delivers automation capabilities for business critical processes to support an iterative approach to evaluating and improving workflow. Tools are largely codeless, requiring no technical expertise while keeping operation intuitive and accessible via a familiar point and click GUI. Being web-based, functionality is available 24/7 with mobile friendly optimization for form review, completion and submission, dashboard reporting and photo/GPS data attachments.

Utilizing a forms-based paradigm, Process Director augments familiar Microsoft Word-like capabilities for designing application layouts. Web interfaces for Process Director-driven applications can be drawn up before using the software’s editor to add interactions, behaviors and a range of custom controls. The Dynamic eForm Builder allows forms to adapt based on inputs and usage, before Smart Forms self-validate submitted data and three-way digital signature technology supports authorization. Additional features include the unique Process Timeline for defining time-aware, parallel business processes and forecasting the impact of hypothetical scenarios.

- Process Director helps us provide solutions to niche processes that fall outside of the company's enterprise processes. - Moving from hard copy forms to an electronic format gives us visibility into our processes and eliminates the need to ask "Where are we on this process". - Automating our processes improves efficiency and eliminates a majority of phone calls and emails back and forth. - We have been able to develop simple processes for quick hits to improve a process as well as solve and improve complex processes. - Easy for a non-developer to develop a process from start to finish, yet has the tools a developer needs to develop complex scenarios. - Scripting capability with the SDK allows the software to be extended to meet your process when the out of box functionality doesn't fit your use case. - Great customer support that goes above and beyond to help solve issues - Direct Assistance is available if you need one on one help to solve unique issues - When we were evaluating BPM solutions, Process Director was the only demo that actually presented a complete solution for our use case in the RFQ where other industry identified "leaders" in BPM were not flexible enough to provide a solution. - Process Director is a perfect fit to solve niche processes in our company that fall outside of our enterprise applications - Very easy upgrade process. The actual upgrade process has been less than 10 mins for us even between major version releases.

It is very developer friendly and we were able to use this product for all developers with little bit of learning from BP Logix perspective. Also this product helps to develop the flow as engine and it nicely integrates with our company proprietary software.Developer Friendly : Lot of components are really reusable that helps the developers to save considerable amount of time Timeline : One of the best object I have come across. Very user friendly and it is really very easy to extend for complicated decision making flows. PDF Creation : Creating PDF in multiple documents get accomplished in very simple steps. Business Rules & Business Values : Both are very user friendly and able to connect to our back end database very easily.

It is hard to imagine an organisation that couldnt implement and benefit from Process Director within a matter of weeks. Naturally there is a fair investment required, not only in the product but in training and process design, which needs to be factored in before the ROI can be established. However, Process Directors unique attributes make the ROI clear and far more persuasive than with lesser solutions; simple unlimited user licensing options, Microsoft based technologies for easy implementation, strong product support and training partners, familiar tools such as Word for eForm building, workflow and processes, business intelligence, accessible web interface for administrators and users, unrivalled flexibility of features and out-the-box deployment ability.The Microsoft Word eForm builder makes creation of simple forms and processes incredibly accessible to any level of user. Some things take a little thinking about to decide the best way of achieving a goal but, without exception, we always find a neat solution to every requirement within the features offered. Powerful database integration via SQL queries, SOAP web service calls (in both directions) and even REST calls make integration more possible than with similar products. The three tier licensing makes sizing and implementing a system a straightforward business without having to count users and constantly be under pressure to adjust the system use to remain within restrictive user count license restrictions.

Process Director fits the need.

All in all this application fits the need; Whether you have 100 processes that all need to link to each other, or one simple process that you just want to increase accountability for. The ease of use, scalability, and low cost made me an instant fan. The GUI allows for a simplistic look a some very complex coding. This makes gathering requirements and creating workflows extremely visual, which in an advertising agency is essential to getting understanding and sign-off for each program implementation. The Microsoft integration makes creating forms and linking to external data sources a breeze. The customizations that are possible in the forms and workflows via basic C# scripts allow developers to create dynamic controls that may otherwise be sacrificed due to time or resource deficiency. The customer support has been nothing less than superb since day one. There has never been and issue or question raised that wasn't addressed in a timely manner.

Innovative and Excellent!

Review Source: Capterra

I implemented Process Director about a year ago, and currently run roughly 7000-10,000 new processes a month without any major challenges. It has been stable, day in and day out.The forms front end allows us to eliminate costly, time consuming, and error prone data entry. They can be designed by our business units, and enhanced by our developers if need be. That dual approach to the design element allows for collaborative creativity, and a reduced amount of communication between the business and IT. The business rules are capable of running the gamut from simple, to very complex, depending on the time and effort you put in. The timeline model creation is innovative and easy to use, giving a "project" look and feel to the design interface, and incorporating events and time into the process.
