    Month-End Financial Closing – The Advantages of a Workflow Platform Approach

    Posted on: September 1, 2021

    The month-end financial closing process is one of the most important business processes - and one of the most challenging.

    Coordinating data, documents, tasks, and people across multiple facilities, departments, legal entities, systems, and time zones is time consuming and error prone. And with each passing day, it takes more effort, causes more frustration, and increases personal exposure.

    Although an obvious opportunity for technology, numerous packaged month-end closing offerings have struggled to meet the need – forcing customers to choose between living with the application’s limitations or embarking on a course of expensive and hard to maintain customizations; in both cases, forcing customers to pay for irrelevant or unneeded functionality while adding yet another layer of technical debt.

    What is a low code Proof of Concept and why get one?

    Posted on: July 13, 2021

    There’s a lot of excitement around low code development platforms. The promise of delivering internal and customer facing applications with exceptional speed and reaping huge gains in productivity and customer satisfaction is a powerful draw.

    But along with excitement comes noise, hype, and grand claims. How can you know if a vendor’s claims are accurate and that their platform can solve your problems? How can you demonstrate the viability and business value of your automation project?

    The best answer is a Proof of Concept.

    Can your Low Code Platform do this?

    Posted on: May 20, 2021

    Interest in business process automation is at an all time high, thanks in no small part to low code automation platforms.

    But a collection of automated processes will not deliver the business value needed to win. Transformative automation requires strategic thinking – thinking in terms of automating a business, not individual processes. That’s because no business process exists in isolation. Each process is part of an ecosystem of interdependent processes and applications that collectively determine an organization’s cost structure, agility, and customer satisfaction.
