BPMN Modeler for Confluence

The BPMN Modeler for Confluence enables you to conduct simple and inexpensive methodical process management. To make this procedure available to everyone and encourage beginners to get a feeling for the many possibilities BPMN has to offer, we provide the BPMN Modeler Free. The free version makes it possible to create BPMN 2.0 process models on Wiki pages. For professional business process modeling and with advanced features use the BPMN Modeler Enterprise.

Run a methodical Process Management approach directly within the Enterprise Wiki

The viadee BPMN Modeler is a lightweight extension for the Enterprise Wiki System Atlassian Confluence. With the BPMN Modeler it is possible to carry out methodically profound process management directly within Confluence. The numerous and valuable advantages of this approach resulted from the extensive project experience of our BPM experts and were the motivation for the development of the plug-in:

  • Companies either use tools like Visio to document, analyse and optimise processes. A central storage and versioning system are missing here. Additionally, these tools do not enable syntax checks, which control the right application of a voice notation like BPMN 2.0.
  • Or companies use expensive specialised BPM tools that can and should only be operated by BPM experts because the modeling licences are very expensive. Often only those who work and think in these processes every day have permission to read the process models. Changes can only be made by a few experts. The effect is that process documentation becomes obsolete. The once tediously created process models don’t match the actual processes anymore.

More than 1.000 installed instances and top ratings

  • More than 1.000 companies worldwide use the BPMN Modeler for Confluence.
  • Since the introduction in 2016, the number of companies has been rising steadily.
