Pain points and challenges

1. Long process development cycle

There are many innovative business processes such as cloud small loans and small and micro loans. With the previously adopted open-source BPM platform Acvitivy,a lot of development and testing is required, causing long cycles and difficulties in maintenance. The internal self-developed system solves the circulation scenario by hard-coding.

2. Lack of flexible process engine

Limited by the underlying development framework, it is difficult to support special process patterns such as "risk avoidance" and arbitrary rejection mechanisms, which is commonly known as the lack of case management support.

3. Difficulty in integrating heterogeneous systems

There are a large number of scenarios in business processes that require data integration and interaction with third-party systems (such as credit systems, which need to be connected to multiple credit data sources). Each integration docking of a single system is hard-coded as a separate function point, which causes a large workload and high maintenance costs.

Reasons for choosing Econage

1. Robust and mature process middle office architecture, which can provide general process services for dozens of self-developed systems of Bank of Hangzhou;

2. Process and rule modeling is efficient, easy to use, and flexible, which can be maintained by business personnel to reduce process development and maintenance costs;

3. Professional process products, support various process modes and case management, support unified process monitoring and analysis tools;

4. Powerful and flexible iPaaS integration capabilities, out-of-the-box connectors, and dozens of systems such as finance and risk control can be connected through configuration.

Cooperation time

The cooperative relationship was established in August 2020, and the first phase of the project has been successfully launched; Phase II is ongoing.

Project value

1. As a pure back-end service, the platform seamlessly connects to dozens of self-developed systems of Bank of Hangzhou, without changing the usage habits of end users, the interactive experience does not change, and the launch is natural and smooth;

2. The process platform serves as a unified entrance and unified data source for the multi-system background to realize unified operation and maintenance, unified monitoring and unified analysis of the process;

3. Perfectly execute the "risk avoidance" principle using arbitrary rejection mechanisms. For example, the process engine can automatically give the corresponding list of "suspect " users (such as those who have kinship with the initiator) according to the personnel relationship model of the process initiator, to ensure the fairness and efficiency of the process to the greatest extent;

4. AlphaBot process robots, including email, OCR scanning, SMS, and other configuration robots, replace repetitive work in the process and improve the automation ability of the process.
