NC Company Overview
Signavio is a technology company that offers a cloud based software as a service (SaaS) solution that is designed to help its clients analyze and understand its business processes, prepare for business transformation projects, and move towards greater operational efficiency, productivity and automation – all within a user friendly environment.
Signavio, based in Berlin, Germany, was founded in 2009 using software developed in 2006 by four university friends who saw that all of the academic theory and thinking on business process management, transformation and improvement was not filtering through to have benefits in real world businesses. They developed the Signavio software to assist businesses in fostering change and fully understanding their internal processes, allowing for improvement and also for strategic planning during business transformation phases.
The company name Signavio was chosen based on the word ‘segnavia’ in Italian, which means signpost. The founders wanted the platform to serve as a signpost that gave users a clear path towards more effective and streamlined business processes.
