Processes automationThe platform employs a visual process designer based on the principles of visual programming to automate both simple and complex processes.In addition to the visual process builder, the platform also offers a simplified approach for automating simple processes that does not require extensive knowledge.
Application dataThe data model must be designed and managed externally from the application, and it must be independent of it.The data schema is an integral part of the application and is deployed and updated along with the application as it evolves.
Citizen developer optionsCitizen developers have access to the same tools as professional developers, which are not considered "low-code for everyone."Nectain offers citizen developers a straightforward approach to creating solutions that professionals can expand upon.

This allows businesses to automate data processing and use machines to recognize data such as invoices and sort them accordingly, freeing up valuable time for more important tasks.

No data modeling

Unlike many low-code solutions that require data modeling before determining what needs to be done with it, Nectain enables businesses to start by modeling the process from start to finish. Once the process has been designed, users can determine the data that is required and model it accordingly. This approach accelerates digital transformation and has been proven to yield positive results.

Organizational structure

Nectain's organizational structure is crucial for corporate workflows, especially when permissions relate to departments or roles within departments involved in the process. By providing a mechanism that enables users to change individuals within a department without affecting the position's function, Nectain ensures optimal efficiency.

All-in-one application
