Elements.cloud is… a freemium enterprise app that enables organizations of any size to reduce the costs and risks of business transformation, systems implementation or regulatory compliance. It enables them to rapidly develop and manage governed process maps. It builds a view of system config data so that it can be easily understood, documented and categorized from a regulatory perspective. The content in Elements is the operational manual – the single source of truth – for end users, business analysts, development teams and auditors.

So much more than process mapping. So much functionality for free.

Freemium cloud app

Free means free, for ever, for everyone. Premium is priced for the Fortune 5 million, not just the Fortune 500.

Elements.cloud is 100% cloud running on AWS, tightly integrated into Salesforce. But it plays well with other apps and systems.

Capture requirements

Capture and manage all your requirements and users stories in one place with a managed lifecycle from “raised” to “implemented”.

Add supporting information and collaborate on requirements, link to process and Salesforce config items. Sync user stories with Jira.

Map processes

Develop simple, yet powerful hierarchical process maps. Connect, engage and communicate with your business users.

Develop a “single source of truth” that is more than project documentation, but is a platform for continuous improvement.

Sync Salesforce config

Get real insights into your Org customizations by sync’ing your config data to a Ref Model where you can see the full picture and can assess the impact of GDPR.

Add supporting notes and collaborate on any item.  Link any item to the requirements and the process steps that use it.

Deliver user training

Use the process content as the point of need training for end users by linking process steps to the supporting information (procedures, training , videos, apps).

Embed process diagrams in Salesforce standard and custom objects (by record type) so end users get process-driven training that is always up to date.

Provide governance

Manage a formal release cycle for process content from draft through to published with access to archives.

End users  can be confident they are using the most recent published version.

Demonstrate to auditors which process steps support the regulatory standards.

Time is running out. We have a GDPR solution for you.

Are you behind the curve on being able to demonstrate compliance? We have extended Elements.cloud to make it easier and faster for you to meet the regulatory requirements in time. This is in 2 areas:
1. Don’t spend hours building a spreadsheet with data fields for all your apps that you know will be out of date tomorrow. Sync all app field data into a Ref Model so it can be validated.
2. Map processes with version control that satisfies the regulators and helps your staff maintain compliance. We are building some standard processes that can be used as a starting point.
