Pipefy and Quandary: Ignite Business Transformation With Low-Code

Businesses striving for higher revenue and operational excellence face many barriers. One common obstacle? Tech stacks and processes that are long overdue for optimization. For many companies, the gradual addition of new solutions to the stack — and the customization of legacy components — has created more problems than it has solved. 

But it doesn’t have to be this way. A solution with a proven track record of success is the use of low-code process automation. Low-code gives business teams an IT-sanctioned toolkit that enables them to solve problems quickly and build processes they can trust. Low-code is highly adaptable and easily modified. It evolves in unison with processes and business strategy. 

Combined with process discovery and optimization, low-code automation delivers total business transformation.

Quandary Consulting: Delivering business transformation as a service

The need for business transformation has never been more urgent. This is the reality that’s come into sharp relief over the past couple of years as markets have shifted, work models have changed, and economic forecasts have become tinted by uncertainty.

It’s clear now that low-code automation and process optimization can make the difference between businesses that merely survive and those that thrive. In fact, low-code automation is now recognized as one of the cornerstones of business transformation. 

Business transformation is a complex initiative that involves technological innovation, process discovery, and automation capabilities. Because of this complexity, true process automation and improvement have eluded many companies. Quandary Consulting Group aims to change that by delivering business transformation as a service. 

Quandary recognizes that time-to-prove for any solution is critical. Quandary accelerates business transformation by focusing on rapid discovery, deep process optimization, and low-code automation. According to Mark Daoust, head of professional services at Quandary: 

“A lot of companies are going through the digital transformation process, and it’s really hard to put points on the board. That’s because it can take anywhere from nine to 12 months to develop and scale solutions for most companies. With Quandary’s speed to discovery and Pipefy’s low-code technology, that timeline is consolidated into a matter of weeks or months. Businesses are able to see and use these solutions as quickly as possible, feel the impact of process improvements faster, and start measuring ROI in much less time.”

Quandary understands that technical solutions must be matched to business problems. In too many cases, businesses try to manage their processes with tools that weren’t designed for them. To compensate for this lack of fit — and to keep up with the pace of change — companies have invested in expensive, time-consuming customizations or added a constant stream of new apps and services to the stack.

As a result, companies burn through IT and developer resources, stacks become unnecessarily complicated, and processes break down. 

The Quandary strategy

Many businesses face a similar slate of challenges that impede their ability to unlock business transformation across the enterprise. These include obstacles such as process gaps, inefficiency, and limited developer resources. 

ChallengeCause
Process gaps and workflow fragmentationProcesses and workflows change
Team structure is modified
New components are added to the existing stack
Lack of visibilityHidden inputs or outputs
Work silos
Lack of data integration
Handoff failures
InefficiencyHigh volume of manual tasks
Repetitions and redundancies
BottlenecksLack of process standardization
IT/developer constraints Limited bandwidth
Growing IT backlog
Extensive customizations

Quandary begins by identifying the current process needs. Once these are defined, Quandary creates an integrated, agile solution that solves the unique challenges in the process flow. The low-code framework means that the solution can be easily and quickly adapted when future changes are needed. Processes and workflows are optimized for the present and future-proofed through technology that evolves.  

To achieve this level of operational excellence, Quandary leverages Pipefy’s low-code automation to address process challenges with precision. Low-code delivers faster results and business agility while conserving resources and forging stronger partnerships between business units and IT. 

Pipefy: Catalyst for digital transformation

Tech stacks are complex. They often depend on legacy components and systems of record that are too rigid to sustain agility. Pipefy’s low-code automation addresses both issues by providing an orchestration layer that integrates with existing systems and helps teams manage and automate new workflows and processes as they emerge. 

Pipefy’s low-code automation effectively solves complexity and rigidity because it: 

Conserves IT resources

Low-code automation gives business users an IT-approved set of tools to manage their processes and workflows. Processes and workflows scale effortlessly, and security features are built in. Business users access features and make changes with an intuitive visual interface. That means fewer requests to the IT team and less pressure on the IT backlog.

Enables process standardization

Standardized workflows and processes are easier to monitor and manage. Security enforcement is simplified, and the consistency of outcomes and customer experiences improves. Process standardization helps teams create the types of structured processes and workflows that drive efficiency, reduce waste, and improve visibility. 

Amplifies stack extensibility

Stack extensibility means getting more from existing apps, systems, and databases. It closes the gap between what the tech stack can do and what it should do. Low-code automation integrates with existing components and provides an orchestration layer that helps business teams solve new problems, automate new workflows, and build new pathways toward process excellence.

Creates a system of engagement

All companies have a system of record that they use to store and manage data. Systems of record emphasize data control and security. Think ERPs, CRMs, and legacy components. 

What systems of record don’t do well is help business teams collaborate and access the information they need to stay agile. Low-code automation solves this problem by providing a system of engagement that improves accessibility and collaboration without compromising security. 

Simplifies automation

Few technologies offer more opportunities to drive revenue and improve efficiency as low-code automation. Pipefy makes it easy for any business user to eliminate manual or repetitive tasks in order to speed up processes and avoid errors. As a result, users have more time to focus on the activities that create more value for the business. 

Pipefy and Quandary: Building better solutions together

Businesses can’t afford to delay business transformation, nor can they afford to waste time or resources on the constant, frenetic customization of their existing tech stacks. 

Quandary and Pipefy deliver a future-proofed business transformation solution that’s cost-effective and faster than conventional approaches to digitalization. By providing our customers with solutions that scale easily, adapt readily, and conserve IT resources, we help businesses prepare for tomorrow and capture faster, long-term ROI.
