Business Process Modeling Just Got Easier With Creately

Business analyst tired of doing business process modeling using traditional software? Well we are here to change that. We came up with a set of tools that will make business process modeling faster, easier and fun. So how are we going to make it fast and easy? Below is a summary. Click on them to learn more on how they will speed up the process.

Usability Features to Draw Diagrams Faster

We are proud to call ourselves a productivity tool, which is why we have added some cool features to speed up your diagrams and save you time.  Features like 1-click create alone speed up the drawing 4 times compared to traditional diagram software. Whats more, check out our sticky containers which ‘understand’ how grouping in BPMN works like in Pools, Swimlanes and Processes.

BPMN notation can get complex. Off the 12 core shapes, there are so many various modifiers that you can apply making finding and drawing the diagram a headache.

We’ve simplified it with our awesome properties panel. So take a process and change the properties to make it have a different task type, make it loop etc.

Our text based Objects makes modifying complex objects like choreography a walk in the park. Just double click on the object and follow the instructions to create detailed choreography objects with ease.

Separate Library to Reduce Clutter

Problem with most drawing software is that they have too much options and less drawing space. With our contextual tool bars you will only see the objects that are most relevant for you. After that it’s just a matter of dragging and dropping objects and drawing your diagram. The BPMN notation library has all the objects found in BPMN 2.0 approved by Object Management Group.

Change the text, drag a few processes and within minutes you have your own business model. Below are some business process model templates available to you.
