The Catalytic platform provides one cloud platform that acts both as an interface to build no-code workflows and as an app to run and manage them all.
It’s the only cloud platform made for citizen developers, balanced with governance—and above all—with people in mind. The interface is business-user friendly for instant setup, rapid building and agile changes. At the core is a self-managing, intelligent data layer for powerful processing, visibility and a low-maintenance, dynamic infrastructure that’s open-ended for easy integration to your existing tech stack.
Companies from global powerhouses to nimble startups use Catalytic's customized, digitized workflows to coordinate and automate tasks in the background, so people can do more with less in their operations. No-code workflow building empowers them to overcome unique, years-long process problems and bottlenecks while reinvesting in their workforce—recapturing time for employees to do more meaningful work and take on tech upskilling opportunities.
Catalytic sits in a unique intersection of many of these technologies, but has some key differentiators that set it apart from some of these categories.
Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and Intelligent Process Automation (IPA) are almost synonymous, replicating clicks and copy-and-paste type of tasks on the surface level of a computer screen, sometimes leveraging AI. On the other hand, Catalytic automates and uses AI at the data-level in the background to complete more complicated and dynamic processes with less fragility.
Integrations Platforms as a Service (IPaaS) bridge data from two or more systems together. IPaaS is great for simple, two or three-step automations and straightforward data transfer. Catalytic can handle the same tasks as IPaaS, plus the rest of a larger process that uses integrations and other automation features like smart web forms, task routing, document generation, data processing and text analysis, even machine learning.
No-code/Low-code App Development Platforms create applications and software solutions without traditional coding methods. Catalytic is also no-code/low-code, however our platform is meant for building integrated workflows that use automation throughout the context of your existing tech ecosystem instead of adding more apps and programs to log into and use.
Automation can be a very broad term, we use the terms “no-code” and “workflow” to show how we’re different. Catalytic is a platform to automate digital processes. No-code describes how almost anyone can build automated processes using visual building blocks instead of coding. We call these processes workflows—they are the end result where automated steps and tasks that go to humans are combined to save time and keep track of your processes in the most practical way.
Actions are the building blocks of the Catalytic platform. Each performs a unit of work. Technically proficient business users can configure them without coding. Advanced users can create their own custom actions, which are reusable without code by their team members too. Users act as “builders,” developing a Catalytic workflow by combining and configuring actions in a modern, web-based outline view, similar to writing a standard operating procedure or runbook. Configuration is similar to a spreadsheet formula or a macro.
Since every action is configured and used in a similar manner on one platform, builders can quickly gain proficiency and deep expertise in building a variety of solutions, rather than needing to learn and integrate multiple point solutions or a suite of disparate, acquired products.
Our AI-assisted builder uses Natural Language Processing (NLP) technology to turn whatever you type into one of our automated steps so you can quickly take advantage of our extensive pre-built actions without coding or searching.
Choose from many AI-powered actions to embed throughout your workflows: sentiment analysis, fuzzy matching, Optical Character Recognition (OCR), data validation and more.
Easily set up machine learning and predictive models for almost any step in your workflow that involves predictions, estimates, recommendations and more. Leverage existing workflow data to train it up, generate confidence levels and create rules for exception handling.
You can search Catalytic’s robust list of integrations for your most common business apps that are ready to be added to your workflows. Our library of these connectors is growing constantly. Plus, with our open-ended platform, there is always the option to create custom integrations and easily work with almost any API.
From prioritizing your use cases and finding your no-code builders, to helping them create impactful automated workflows at scale with dedication to continuous improvements, Catalytic is your partner to ensure a successful implementation of a no-code automation program with our platform.
