Authentise and Microsoft to enable additive manufacturing operators to create their own automations
Authentise, a specialist in data-driven workflow tools for additive manufacturing, has signed a multi-year collaboration agreement to give more freedom to additive manufacturing operators. The collaboration consists in utilizing Microsoft Azure and integrating Authentise’s workflow management system into Microsoft Flow.
AM operators that quote, produce and analyze processes will be able to directly create their own automations without any coding knowledge. Indeed, with Flow, they will be able to connect Authentise’s data with third party applications such as Microsoft Office 365, Quickbooks, text messaging, email and more, by dragging and dropping the operations into place.
Custom alerts, dashboards, and other workflow automations could therefore be easily created to further increase transparency and efficiency in their additive manufacturing operations.
“We’re delighted to be working with Microsoft to put power into the hands of operators,” says Andre Wegner, CEO of Authentise. “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 risk. Thanks to this collaboration, we are giving the power to make those changes to anyone, no matter their background.”
In addition to the integration with Flow, Authentise is also switching its existing customers to Azure.
“Microsoft is pleased to help Authentise empower manufacturing workers by enabling them to create their own business workflows on the Microsoft cloud,” says Diego Tamburini, Principal Manufacturing Industry Lead for Cloud Commercial Communities at Microsoft. “By adding manufacturing-specific connectors to the Microsoft Flow gallery, Authentise is unlocking the workers’ creativity so they can improve the efficiency of their own work. With 54 regions across the globe delivering services to 140 countries, Microsoft Azure is uniquely positioned to help manufacturers meet their compliance obligations including ITAR and GDPR. While Manufacturers may have once shied away from the cloud, they are no longer doing so.”
