ProActive Software takes product development and design up a notch
The days of a company’s workforce coming together at one location at the same time are long gone. In many industries virtual teams are now the norm, making a solid collaboration strategy more important than ever.
That’s where ProWorkflow comes in. Developed by ProActive Software, ProWorkflow gives thousands of users worldwide access to tools and project details so they can manage their tasks, time, and contacts from desktops and mobile devices. The platform is built on Adobe ColdFusion, which gives ProActive the flexibility to adapt in time with customers’ rapidly changing demands.
“Product iteration was fast using Adobe ColdFusion,” says Vishal Nath, CIO of ProActive Software. “As our customer base grew and our product matured, we had to create application program interfaces (APIs) for customers so they could create apps and reports with their own data. We did that quickly with ColdFusion.”
Adobe has been a trusted ProActive partner for over 14 years and is playing a key role in ProActive Software’s mobile strategy. The new ProWorkflow Mobile service extends the solution to customers’ smartphones and tablets. The mobile app has a front-end framework that talks to the company’s API, which was developed in Adobe ColdFusion.
The next step for ProActive Software is experimenting with apps in Adobe Creative Cloud, bringing development and design closer together. The new Adobe Stock will help the team improve design elements, while Adobe Typekit will provide typographic inspiration.
“After 14 years, it’s difficult to fully quantify the value we’ve realized from Adobe,” Nath says. “However, we know how other developers and development companies operate and compared to them we know we’re saving development time and costs with ColdFusion. We’re incredibly efficient by comparison.”
