The IT Vendor Management DIY Workflow Automation Platform

 

The need to do more with less is pushing IT vendor management and procurement groups to creatively problem-solve their biggest process headaches.  The key is to centrally manage and automate end-to-end processes that require the highest amounts of human labor.  It is often the case that enterprise IT is not positioned to meet these IT vendor management needs--nor has the business understanding to do so.  Forget trying to fund a team of developers to code a single solution.  ExpressAbility Automation Manager is a no-code solution that empowers teams to build their own automation including forms, requests, business rules, reports, dashboards, integration, and workflows that get the job done--and built by the people who are closest to the business needs!
