We started seeking a workflow platform as 3M IT two years ago. We were in need of transferring our workflows to a measurable and user friendly platform where we can rapidly respond to internal customer needs. We were looking for a solution to serve all users not only in Turkey but the whole Eastern European Region including large countries such as Russia and Poland. Within that period, we evaluated Bimser’s eBA solution and other foreign company solutions in every aspect and we chose eBA as the joint workflow platform since it stood out in many criteria upon evaluations made with IT specialists from many countries. At our current position, processes developed on eBA platform in countries such as Turkey, Poland, Russia, Republic of Hungary, Czech Republic and Israel over a single server are being used by thousands of employees. We can develop new work processes very quickly on eBA platform. I totally recommend eBA to other companies as it can be easily used in international companies and its high quality corporate support takes it one step ahead.
