ProcessMaker is a low-code Business Process Management (BPM) and workflow software solution. It allows companies to design, run, report, and improve business processes.
This online software program automates form-based and approval-driven workflows and improves the way information flows between data and systems. In particular, it provides an intuitive, drag-and-drop interface designed to make it easier for business analysts to model approval-based workflows.

Breakdown of core features
ProcessMaker has features that combine enterprise low-code development and intelligent workflow automation.
The modeler empowers business users to design business processes in days rather than months. Users can drag and drop tasks and decision points on to the modeling canvas, and then add in forms, users, and data connectors. The ProcessMaker modeler is BPMN 2.0 standards compliant.
Business users can design forms and display screens that are used in the workflows. Forms are used to capture data, display data from other systems, and design approval screens for managers to make decisions.
ProcessMaker allows charts and reports to be built based on any type of filtered search. These charts can then be shared with users and groups so that everyone has exactly the information they need when they need it. Executives, managers, and supervisors can access dashboards to monitor processes and ensure that business objectives and Service Level Agreements (SLAs) are being met.
