Kyoto, Japan – October 7th, 2019 – Questetra, Inc., the global SaaS provider of Business Process Management (BPM), today announced that they have published the new version 11.12 of the Cloud-based Workflow product « Questetra BPM Suite » on Oct. 7th, 2019. This new version allows the automated controlling of Box folders. (Box: a cloud content management service)
In recent years, even though the idea of « cloud-first » (i.e. prioritizing the use of cloud services when constructing a system) is spreading, many organizations still have vague concerns about information security.
With the new version 11.12 you can equip your Business Processes with automation, such as setting up a download password and expiration date for Box folders. That is, for example, settings for sharing an invoice file will be configured automatically. This will greatly reduce the risk of “settings errors” and “settings omissions” in file-sharing operations with business partners.
Questetra BPM Suite
Cloud-based Workflow « Questetra BPM Suite » is a business platform for realizing paperless environments and remote-working. Business issues are controlled according to a Business Flow Diagram. When a Process reaches a Human Task the user will be asked to add their input. Also, when an issue reaches an automated Step the predetermined processing (server-side processing) such as “Generate PDF” and “Save to cloud storage” is performed automatically. (BPM: Business Process Management)
You can apply it to various business operations such as “Approval request flow”, “Document translation flow”, Quality check process, “Invoice issuance process”. Process owners of each Business Process can practice the “improvement of Business Processes” little by little in daily work.
