Join the BPM Academic Initiative and get free access to one of the leading process modeling and workflow automation platforms. It is an ideal BPM tool for lectures, seminars and projects. As there is no installation required, using the platform is as easy as it could be. The Signavio Process Editor supports multiple modeling languages such as BPMN 2.0, EPC, Petri nets and ArchiMate. Signavio Workflow then enables the BPMN 2.0 models to be automated.
