Fluid was born out of a deep understanding of the needs of modern business.

The management of any principal business is driven by the requisites for cost effective and efficient management, whilst delivering to customers. Central to the management of the business is information about the business. Information is POWER and the ability access this information is key to any business. Successful tools are required to deliver this management capability.

Businesses need to be agile and adaptable in order to respond to ever changing market demands.

Fluid brings ALL this together …. process management, document or object management and data management …. in one elegant agile integrated solution that is entirely auditable and secure.


The Tenets of the Fluid Design

The tenets of Fluid are delivered through the architecture and design of the system and demonstrate the ability in:

Simplicity in relation to simplifying the installation, the configuration and the utilization of Fluid.

Flexibility and extensibility through the architectural design which dispenses with any business requirement.

Adaptability provided through the unique approach to custom integrations which favours adapting to existing environments and processes rather than replacing them.

Security and required robustness in relation to Content Storage, Web Application Access and Electronic Form Access. All data from the client browser to Fluid is fully encrypted with TLS1.2. One other thing worth mentioning.

Fluid has undergone penetration testing to meet PCI-DSS requirements and make use of Docker Security Scanning.

The scan compares the SHA of each component against the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE®) database. The CVE is a “dictionary” of known information security vulnerabilities. When the CVE database is updated, the service reviews the indexed components for any that match the new vulnerability. If the new vulnerability is detected in an image, the service sends an email alert to the maintainers of the image.

See and

Maintainability and Business Continuity as little or no downtime is required during system maintenance or modifications.

Configurability is handled through a single point of entry.

Manageability in relation to Business Process Management; the web based Visual Design tools, ensure a single point of entry for rule changes and collaboration.

User Ability as the Fluid user interface is completely Web Based and the ability to develop custom front-ends or applications is possible via the Fluid (API) Application Programming Interface.

Integration Ability as the integration to and from Fluid is made simple via:

  • The Fluid Custom Program interface for Flow Steps.
  • The Fluid Custom Program interface for Forms.
  • The Fluid Custom Scheduled tasks for scheduled or periodically executed functions.
  • The Fluid Application Programming Interface (modern JSON-REST based).

Report Ability includes the utilisation of User Punchcard Reports and ranges from how long users were logged in and performing work functions to Content Storage Utilisation.

Administration Ability enables easy work management and re-assignment of work.
