Our happy customers

“Very flexible BPA/RPA tool enables easy and fast (< 1day) implementation of less complex processes”

“Game-changing software system”

I liked the most that Shakespeare not only covers support for BPM, but offers also very good DMS module. This means that all the documents, that are used in BPM processes are safely stored in DMS storage, which offers also additional capabilities such as document template costumization and out-of-the-box integration with some important backend systems on the market.

Consultant in Public Policy

That is totaly web oriented and does not need a client installation. That it’s BPM engine enables to make different types of processes, that could be adhoc deployed based on a client needs. That is robust and stable with the stress on scalability, availability and reliability, not to mention the excellent customer experience.

User in Hospital & Health Care

Shakespeare software is daily used in our work for managing legal cases. It helps the users to have better overview of their tasks and status of legal cases. Software is also integrated with our courts, so it saves a lot of time and reduces operational risk, as it automatically tracks the development and status of certain legal cases. Additional integration with our core system is also possible, to even further automatize the manual work and focus really only on content of legal cases, instead of a lot of administrative tasks.

Luka B.

Shakespeare ability to create any, even the most complex workflow. A lot of automation like email processing, importing data from OCR document sources and automatic escalations are nice features.

Dusan K

Shake is easy to use, modular and easy to manage, having opportunity to create or edit processes and drag out all meta data we need daily. Seamlessly integrated BPM/RPA/DMS with standard office tools makes it secure and much easier to use.
