Benefits

Why Aria Workflow

Automate and enforce proprietary business rules and practices

Construct complementary rules and processes within Aria Billing Cloud to support your unique requirements for billing. Use and re-use logic, flows, interfaces and datasets to craft workflows. Remove manual intervention from business processes.

No-code approach for continuous optimization

Once trained on Aria Workflow, you can create, modify and re-use workflows using a non-programming visual-builder interface. Continue to optimize business processes in an agile way. Aria support assists with workflow verification and launch.

Embedded seamless access

Aria Workflow is embedded within Aria Billing Cloud so all infrastructure management, security, SLAs and APIs are naturally extended and available to Aria Workflow. This eliminates or reduces reliance and risk on sub-optimal middleware layers.

Save time using Aria’s Workflow Application Library

A growing application library provides access to common workflows built by and for Aria’s community that can be further modified to suit your requirements.

Analyst Viewpoint

Low-code and agile are the rocket fuel of digital transformation

“Agile provides the necessary discipline for low-code development, while low-code provides the inherently suitable technology for inspiring innovation, autonomy and agile adoption at scale. Thus, together, low-code and agile are the rocket fuel of business-led digital transformation.”

“We empower our customers to innovate at the edge, and we believe they shouldn’t have to wait until the end of the month for their usage and billing information. Aria’s cloud billing platform allows us to provide our customers with critical data and timely information related to consumption, which ultimately enables them to be more successful.”
