bpm'online alternative for all kind of processes, not just commercial ones.

In this article, we analyze and propose Flokzu Cloud BPM as a proven bpm'online alternative for all the processes of your organization, without being limited to those of the commercial area.

Introduction

bpm'online changed its name to Creatio in 2019. It is a tool originally conceived as a CRM, to attend strictly commercial processes. Although generic functionalities have been added lately, it still presents limitations to model other types of processes. Its functionalities are more aligned with a CRM than with a BPM Suite, so implementing processes from other areas takes more time and costs.

Flokzu was specially designed to speed up the construction and deployment of all kind of business processes in a very short time and without technical knowledge. Flokzu also supports the BPMN 2.0 international standard (OMG), making processes easily understandable for everyone. It also provides wider and more powerful features set, allowing to automate business processes, and integrating them with other legacy or web apps. As a result, you can have all kind of processes running in hours (instead of weeks or months) at an affordable price.
