Business process management software (BPMs) helps companies streamline employee workflows and improve organizational efficiency. With Work-Relay intelligent BPMs, you can take those benefits even further.
a new approach to complex operations
While the term ‘business process’ refers to any activity or task within an organization, in the digital age the day-to-day work performed by people is often overlooked.

legal & compliance
manage Commercial Property Asessed Clean Energy (C-PACE) loan applications
With Work-Relay, the client has a platform that guides internal staff through the management of Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE) loan applications from lead through closing, guiding users and ensuring compliance with internal, funder, and program requirements. C-PACE has enormous complexity, with rules and processes that vary by local taxing entity. C-PACE loans cover a wide variety of energy projects sizes, scopes, geographies and property sectors; making the loan diligence process complex and dynamic. Users are often confused on what to do next, or what is still outstanding.
hyper-customize the process
Work-Relay allowed for hyper customization of processes, linking our loan origination steps in a chronological order that tells users what they need to do next to advance the deal. Work Relay provides excellent visual overviews of what’s done, not done, or might be stuck on a single opportunity level and a portfolio level.
fluid project management and realistic projections
The Gantt Chart capabilities of work-Relay allows managers to see when user projected close dates are likely to be unrealistic, improving predictive capabilities around sales and helping to focus users on the most critical deals. No other software provided the level of flexibility that we needed to build a useful project management tool.
manage complex data and approval processes
A global energy technology company is required to track the application process for Third Party Intermediaries. The process entails:
10-15 documents per application as well as all data relating to those documents.
Data is input from those documents
A lengthy approval process, with up to 15 approvers potentially requiring sign off.
In the past, this was handled using Excel spreadsheets, Word documents and email, which is time intensive, prone to error, and doesn’t provide real time feedback of where applicants are in the process.
automated data tracking and dashboards
The process was modeled in Salesforce and Work-Relay so that: assigned managers enter and upload data via a series of forms.
Automated actions send emails to the applicant and internal users so they can track progress
Automated data tracking shows users and management exactly where the applicant is in the process
Starts the approval process once all requirements are met
Allows approvers to request changes to the application or reject the candidate at any point in the process
Allows real-time, detailed analytics tracking via dashboard and reports
As a result of implementing Work-Relay the organization has realized:
real-time visibility into processes
an automated mechanism to assign tasks and send reminders to ensure timely completion
automated document generation for a number of critical documents.
integrating workflow between existing platform and other apps
This software client faced several challenges that were resulted from relying on their document management platform’s dated User interface, including:
The platform’s several limited ability to integrate with other platforms, especially Salesforce. Custom development is required to do any integration between the two systems.
Limited/difficult connectivity with other applications, resulting in the need for manual work –– such as downloading and uploading documents between the two systems.
Difficulty spotting bottlenecks in workflows due to the limited reporting capabilities of the document management platform.
a single platform to manage workflows
With Work-Relay installed directly within Salesforce, the client was able to avoid the need for complex custom development between their workflow system and Salesforce, and now has a single platform solution that:
Offers integration/connecting capabilities with other applications
Provides data analytic/reporting capabilities that spots bottlenecks and variations in the workflow
Is visually-pleasing and user-friendly
a seamless and controlled process
Working with Neostella the customer now has a more seamless and controlled process between Work-Relay and Salesforce that includes:
More integration capabilities, specifically with NetSuite
Improved workflow through the data within the reports
Better end user experience/view, as well as a more user-friendly application
With patches that are rolled out regularly the client is able to continuously improve functionality.
