About Elements.Cloud

Elements is a leading Cloud solution for professional Business Process Management. Founded by long-time veterans of standard solutions for process management, Elements' platform is to Process Management what M-Files is to Enterprise Content Management. Their concept is to take the process management features traditionally reserved for expensive corporate solutions and offer them in a new way in the Cloud, starting at Free. The free package includes unlimited users and diagrams, state-of-the-art drawing tools and professional support.

Having worked closely with the people behind Elements in their past ventures, when we implemented their corporate standard solutions for Quality Management, we immediately saw the benefits of combining their new process service with an advanced information management system. That is why we at Solution Management have collaborated with Elements to integrate their Cloud platform seamlessly into M-Files (Web and Desktop clients).
