Orchestrate and automate
In any enterprise, collaboration is key. Actions must be performed in a certain sequence to achieve the expected result and workflows may cross multiple teams, departments or suppliers.
Workflows are ideal candidates for automation. Automating tasks improves predictability and consistency, leading to an increase in perceived quality. But where to start? And how do you stay in control? 4me provides all the required capabilities to successfully orchestrate and automate your enterprise workflows.
Use 4me as the center of automation orchestration
Workflows are defined, registered, coordinated, monitored, and reported in 4me. All steps, including those that will be automated, are defined as tasks. When these tasks are activated in 4me, the relevant automation recipes are triggered. The result of the automation is recorded in the task. This makes 4me the central hub for enterprise workflow automation. A single place to monitor progress, costs, performance and customer satisfaction.
Leverage your existing automation investments
Most organizations already have several automations in place. These automations are often point-to-point solutions and lack orchestration and transparency. Orchestrating your existing solutions with 4me will put you back in control and helps leverage your current automation investments.
“The implementation of 4me has been a great success; we now work together far more effectively with our users and providers and are able to add workflows and services at the speed of the demand, making us more agile.”
The 4me Workflow Automator
Two of the biggest challenges organizations face when automating workflows are selecting the right technology, and the scarcity of automation and integration specialists.
To help our customers overcome these challenges, we teamed up with Workato, a leading iPaaS vendor. The Workato platform is a low-code solution, which enables less technically inclined staff to build and maintain integrations and automations.
Over 1,000 connectors for common apps and data sources get you on your way quickly. The connector takes care of the connection and the authentication.
Triggers and actions
Each connector comes with a set of triggers and actions which correspond to common activities or events for this data source or app.
Triggers specify the conditions that prompt a certain automation to happen automatically. Examples of triggers are events in an application like the creation of new contacts in a CRM solution. Triggers can also be based on a predefined schedule.
Actions relate to specific user actions in the data source or app. An example of an action is creating a new company in an application when a new contact is added.
Automations consist of a combination of triggers, connectors, actions and conditions. A complete automation can easily be shared as a recipe within your organization, with suppliers or customers. Service providers or 4me partners can publish their recipes as Apps in the 4me App Store. Customers can then activate these recipes in their own accounts with a few clicks.
Free workspace in 4me
Each 4me account comes with a free workspace for building automations and integrations. Just like 4me, the 4me Workflow Automator is a pay-per-use service. You only pay for what you use in production accounts. This means that you can develop and test automations in QA accounts without any additional costs.
