Business process modeling with Low-Code
Low-code business process modeling in Poland has been talked about relatively recently, even though the term has been known for more than a decade. It is only over the past few years that the concept has taken permanent root in Polish business, and entrepreneurs have begun to actively seek such solutions.
Suncode, as a company, recognized the potential of Low-Code long ago and has been enabling clients to independently model, launch, and modify document flows and business applications for years using the mentioned solution. This is extremely important because it allows them to dynamically respond to changing business needs and adjust document flows to the unique requirements of their industry.
What is business process modeling?
Business process modeling is a graphic representation of company processes for the purpose of optimization. To properly model a business process, essential aspects include knowledge of the organizational structure of the company and clearly defined goals. The presentation of a company’s business processes in the form of a diagram is in many ways superior to traditional formats, but most importantly, it is understandable and easy to update.
What is implied by the term Low-Code?
The application of the Low-Code mechanism makes business process modeling even more efficient.
A Low-Code Development Platform (LCDP) is a set of tools aimed equally at developers and non-programmers. It enables efficient generation and preparation of business applications, minimizing the problems not only of traditional coding but also of installation, environment construction, and deployment. It’s worth noting that such platforms enable the modeling of business processes using a graphical and intuitive interface.
Plus Workflow as a Low-Code solution
The Plus Workflow system is equipped with a graphical editor of BPM-class business processes, the Plus Workflow Editor, which, thanks to a transparent user interface, allows efficient creation and modification of business applications for each user.
Because it is a Low-Code solution, the user forms new processes and forms, having access to the library of fields available in the system, which include standard text fields, drop-down lists, or dynamic tables. In addition, the task form layout is completely flexible. It is solely up to the person modeling the new process how the fields and buttons will be arranged, which fields will be mandatory to fill in, and even what colors and icons they will have! This is possible through the use of Drag&Drop functionality; just drag the elements of interest to the desired place on the form.
The built-in business process editor has many features, including:
- Ability to shape maps in a graphical, intuitive process editor;
- Ongoing verification of the correctness of built process maps;
- Possibility of modeling serial and parallel processes;
- Ability to set automatic tasks and define deadlines for their execution;
- Ability to automatically generate a form based on added fields and approval buttons;
- Ability to customize the appearance of the form to meet individual enterprise needs;
- Ability to create processes using predefined field types;
- Ongoing generation of a preview of the new form;
- Ability to manage process versions by administrator.
We know that customers value their independence, so it is important for us that the Plus Workflow system meets all their expectations and allows independent modifications to already running processes. Thanks to the fact that it is a Low-Code solution, modeling, and modifying business processes and applications are effortless, even for users without advanced programming knowledge.
