Flowable 3.6 introduces a number of significant new business features as well as infrastructure services. There are also incremental improvements to the user interfaces and existing capabilities to make it easier and quicker to develop user-centered or system-driven business process and case management solutions.


Frictionless Integration with Innovative Architectures

A new foundation service, the Event Registry, provides business events to the modeler, without them needing to know any of the underlying technical details. This “No Code” integration with event services allows processes and cases to seamlessly react and interplay with event streams from Kafka, ActiveMQ/JMS and RabbitMQ. In this way, Flowable can be integrated even more easily to emerging and innovative architectures and applications.

Seamless Office Integration

It is now possible edit documents directly from Flowable using one´s desktop Microsoft Office applications. There is no need to download and upload files, as one can open, edit and save directly into the versioned content repository in Flowable.

Improved User Experience

The modeling application, Flowable Design, has a new user experience that reduces the number of screens and clicks needed to create applications and their models. With advanced filtering and the ability to edit all models in the same tabbed workspace, it’s now a much simpler way of working.

Live Integration with Active Directory and LDAP

Connecting to one´s user management has become even easier with the option to go direct for authentication and authorization instead of synchronizing user and group details from Active Directory or LDAP.

Documentation: New Look and Feel

Our documentation has a new look and is now organized to make it easier to find information. On documentation.flowable.com it is possible to have a look at it. The old documentation is still available.

As well as these major enhancements, there are a large number of other improvements that extend the flexibility and capability of Flowable. All the details can be found in the Release Notes online.

With the implementation of WhatsApp into any existing infrastructure Flowable Engage enables companies like banks or insurances to deliver great customer advise even when working from home. This makes Flowable Engage the perfect solution in times of social distancing due to the current crisis.

After already numerous customers have benefited from the advantages of the messenger integration, Flowable is now supporting banks, insurances and other companies to deliver best performances despite branch closures and while working from home. By using popular channels as WhatsApp or WeChat for customer service, direct and personal communication becomes possible – even without face-to-face contact.

Both, companies and their customers, are benefiting from Flowable Engage: Easy chatting, personal communication, messaging documentation and more efficient services within familiar applications. These benefits not only improve customer experiences but also lead to increased revenue in a legally compliant way.

The entire audit trail of communication is always available, including the conversation or correspondence itself. The documentation can be archived and is retained even if the advisor leaves the bank. The flexibility of the platform makes it possible to integrate archiving systems without much effort. The existing archiving processes can be used and adapted to the client’s needs.

With the complete redesign of the TQMI system, which better reflects the company structure now, the mimacom-Flowable Group has reached a milestone in their certification history.

After one year of intensive work, mimacom CH, mimacom management AG, Flowable AG and mimacom Deutschland GmbH are now (re)certified according to the ISO 9001 and ISO 27001 standards.

About ISO: ISO 9001 is the international standard for Quality Management Systems (QMS) and was developed by the ISO (International Organization for Standardization). The quality management standard ISO 9001 is the most important of its kind in quality management, both nationally and internationally. It defines minimum requirements for internal quality management. An essential part consists in continuous optimization of all operational processes, which are regularly reviewed.

ISO 27001 is the leading international standard for information security management systems. It applies to private and public companies as well as non-profit organizations and defines the requirements for the introduction, implementation, monitoring and improvement of an information security management system (ISMS).

The two certifications (DIN ISO 9001 since 2005 and ISO 27001 since 2016) as part of the company DNA represent an important and confidence-building basis on which secure, long-term and sustainable partnerships can be built for mimacom, its customers and its employees.

“The next goal we are considering is the certification of the rest of the mimacom-Flowable Group. The roadmap will be drawn up at the beginning of next year”, said Agim Emruli, CEO of the mimacom-Flowable Group.

Bern, 25.09.2019 – Effective September 2019, the Swiss mimacom-Flowable Group acquires a majority stake in Luware Holding AG, the pioneer for innovative customer service solutions headquartered in Zurich. This makes the mimacom-Flowable Group the new majority shareholder of Luware. The operational management of Luware Holding AG remains unchanged in the hands of the founders Philipp Beck and Michael Jakob, who are responsible for the further growth and development of the company.

“Both the mimacom-Flowable Group and Luware have been able prove themselves on the market with similarly strong organic growth in recent years. The acquisition of a majority stake in Luware Holding AG is a strategic investment for mimacom-Flowable. The investment will not only expand mimacom- Flowable’s service portfolio, but also create enormous added value for customers through synergies in the areas of know-how, technology and service portfolio”, says Kurt Amacher, Chairman of the Board of Directors of mimacom-Flowable Group and Luware Holding AG.

Both companies have great innovative power and know-how in digital transformation for customers in key industries such as banking and finance, insurance and manufacturing, and have recently been able to secure major contracts with the federal government in Switzerland.

“The mimacom-Flowable Group has proven that, through continuous innovation, it can offer its customers increasingly tailored end-to-end digitalization solutions and thereby realize steady and strong growth. The acquisition of a majority stake in Luware will further advance this goal and optimize communication and interaction with customers in the digital age. One of the most important arguments for the investment, however, are the shared values and the very similar culture as well as the drive for innovation, which is equally lived by the employees of both companies”, says Agim Emruli, CEO of the mimacom-Flowable Group.

With Luware, the mimacom-Flowable Group is able to offer its customers increasingly requested features such as voice call, video call and screen sharing. Luware, in turn, can benefit from additional message channels such as WhatsApp, WeChat and Line, which can be integrated into customer interaction processes. Together, a comprehensive Omni-Channel customer service solution can be offered to companies and employees which streamlines processes to attract new customers and optimally reaches the existing ones.

“The strong innovative drive of both companies and the development of cloud platforms will make digitalization possible for all sizes of business in the future. Through the mimacom-Flowable Group, we can also benefit from market access in North America and the Asia-Pacific region. Luware will remain an independent brand and organization. An integration into other companies of the mimacom-Flowable Group is not planned at this point. We focus on using synergies to the advantage of our customers”, says Philipp Beck, CEO of Luware Holding AG.

With this investment, the mimacom-Flowable Group will grow to over 350 employees worldwide.

Bern, Switzerland, May 2019 – The year 2018 was a complete success for both companies in two ways: Financially, the company achieved a global increase in turnover of 18% – strategically, the merger of the two companies Flowable and mimacom will set the course for further growth. 

The Swiss open source digitalization expert mimacom and the business process management specialist Flowable AG (formerly edorasware ag) merged in 2018 under a single holding company. In the previous year, both companies reported record sales figures in their respective company history. The project business was further expanded in the core countries of Switzerland, Germany, Spain, the USA and Singapore, and both companies were able to increase global sales from CHF 5.7 million to CHF 38 million (previous year: CHF 32.3 million).

“2018 was a great year and an important milestone for Flowable and mimacom. With the merger, we have laid the foundation for further growth and we are looking forward to the upcoming year,” said Agim Emruli, CEO of Flowable. The group’s first joint business year coincides with the 20th anniversary of the digitalization expert.

“Switzerland is and remains the most important market for Flowable and mimacom,” Agim Emruli continues. “It is the home market of both companies, which have their roots as well as their headquarters in Switzerland. In 2019, in line with the strategic roadmap “think globally, act locally”, the Flowable Group will therefore focus on the market of Switzerland. “We see particular opportunities for growth in Zurich where we are represented with our own branch in order to optimally exploit the great potential in the banking and insurance market”, the CEO of the Flowable Group continues. Especially in the promising area of Conversational Banking, Flowable brings its expertise to both existing and new customer projects and is continuously expanding the characteristics of its product portfolio.  Customers from the government and manufacturing sectors can also benefit from the expertise of the Flowable Group in digitalization projects.

In combination with the positive order situation, the merger of the two companies thus represents an optimal starting point for future development. Flowable and mimacom will join forces to further expand their customer service and intensify their relationships with the strategic technology partners Pivotal, Elastic, Confluent, Liferay, Avaloq and Siemens Mindsphere. On the product side, the focus will be on the Flowable solution. From a market perspective, the Flowable Group will concentrate on the target industries of finance and insurance, manufacturing, automotive and life sciences in the core countries of Switzerland, Germany, Spain, the USA and Singapore.

“Through the internationalization during the last few years, our customers will continue to receive the highest level of quality from 14 locations worldwide, and mimacom’s service portfolio and Flowable’s product portfolio will continue to be further developed and expanded to the benefit of our customers,” emphasizes Agim Emruli.
