Authentise, a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania-based workflow tools manufacturer for Additive Manufacturing, as per recent reports, has agreed upon a multi-year collaboration agreement with Microsoft to utilize Microsoft Azure and integrate the Authentise workflow management system into Microsoft Flow. The Microsoft Flow integration, which is all set to go live this week on the Microsoft Flow Gallery, enables operators involved in the Additive Manufacturing quoting, production, and analytics processes to build their own automations without any prior knowledge of coding.
Flow facilitates Authentise’ data connection with third-party applications such as Microsoft Office 365, Quickbooks, text messaging, email and more, enabling operators to simply perform a drag and drop operation for workflow automation, i.e. creating custom alerts, dashboards, and other automations to provide increased transparency into the Additive Manufacturing operations and further improve operation efficiency.
Speaking on this context, Andre Wegner, CEO of Authentise, said, “We’re delighted to be working with Microsoft to put power into the hands of operators. Our work has shown us how creative those involved with additive production are, and how that ingenuity is often stifled within their operations. Yet, there are many ways in which they could improve their daily operations with zero risks. Thanks to this collaboration, we are giving the power to make those changes to anyone, no matter their background.”
Werner Stapela, Global Head of Additive Design & Manufacturing at Danfoss, an Authentise customer, added, “Danfoss’ additive operations have quadrupled over the last year. Working with Authentise has helped us manage that workload, but every operator has slightly differing requirements and preferences. Giving individuals within any part of the additive workflow the opportunity to craft their own automations is the only way to ensure that the production processes is working as smoothly as possible. We’re delighted that Authentise and Microsoft have recognized this and are providing our staff with the necessary tools and integrations.”
