Process.st alternative for real-life and complex processes
In this article, we analyze and propose Flokzu Cloud BPM as a proven Process.st alternative for workflow and business process automation on the cloud.
Process St. is a simple checklist-based tool. While efficient for linear workflows, it may not be the most suitable option for processes requiring conditional paths or more complex customization. In this sense, Flokzu emerges as a more versatile and adaptable solution.
Key Differentiators:Flokzu offers advanced features, such as a script engine that allows form customization to meet specific needs. Although Process St. does not include features like process visibility and ease of understanding through a standard notation like BPMN, Flokzu does. Additionally, Flokzu excels in process version management and provides an essential testing environment (Sandbox) for automation. In contrast, Process St. lacks gateways in the workflow and support for non-linear processes with different paths based on conditions. Finally, Flokzu allows integration with other systems through Web Services, ensuring effective communication between your organization’s assets.
In Conclusion:Process St. is an effective choice for very simple linear workflows, while Flokzu is the preferred option for real-life processes, which are inherently more complex.
