New name and brand reflect the speed, power and flexibility of its enterprise-grade, no-code workflow application platform

Frederick, Maryland – October 10, 2018 – In celebration of its 15th anniversary, Swift Software, the pioneer of Lean BPM solutions, announced today that the company is changing its corporate name to HighGear – along with the name of its flagship JobTraQ software – to better reflect the speed, power and flexibility of its enterprise-grade, workflow platform that dramatically streamlines business operations and accelerates digital transformation.

“The strength of the name HighGear fully embodies our brand promise to empower everyday business users to rapidly build enterprise-grade workflow applications without knowing how to code,” said Vaughn Thurman, CEO of HighGear. “The world’s leading companies depend on HighGear to manage work, improve efficiency and gain real-time visibility into the status of operations across the entire enterprise.”

HighGear’s intuitive, no-code workflow platform enables business analysts to easily create forms, automate workflows and publish custom, line-of-business applications, all by themselves, without adding to the IT department’s backlog for homegrown software solutions. Business teams use these applications to quickly assign tasks, manage work, track progress and report the status of activity across dozens of departments in real-time, without searching through paper forms, e-mail and spreadsheets.

“Unlike expensive BPM solutions that take months for consultants to implement or low-code frameworks that still require software developers, HighGear is built for business users, trusted by management and approved by IT,” said Josh Yeager, COO of HighGear. “Our no-code workflow platform allows business administrators to use visual, drag-and-drop tools to design, automate and customize simple-to-complex business processes on-demand, in minutes not months, without programming.”

HighGear also released the most powerful version of its workflow automation platform to date, delivering significant performance, ease-of-use and productivity enhancements, including:

  • Visually-enhanced, color-coded workflow sections that make workflows easier to monitor and understand;
  • At-a-glance, workflow analytics that provide unprecedented visibility into the performance of each stage of a workflow;
  • Intuitive process mapping and publishing capabilities that simplify the documentation and creation of operational procedures and functional business workflows;
  • And a customizable library of more than 40 new workflow templates that accelerate the development of real-world business applications for various enterprises or industries.

“Everything is controlled in HighGear. More than 12,000 tasks are workflow-generated each month. There is no way we could manage that volume by hand,” according to Sammye Klein, Operations System Specialist with LSC Communications Publisher Service and the 2018 recipient of HighGear’s annual Workflow Champion award. “I am excited for all of the new workflow analytics, process mapping and template libraries available in HighGear Version 8.”

HighGear is available as an IT-ready, on-premise solution or a hosted, cloud-based SaaS subscription and is accessible to anyone, anywhere on a laptop, desktop or mobile device. HighGear easily integrates with ERP, CRM and other IT systems, meets enterprise-grade security requirements of organizations, such as NASA, the U.S. Army, the U.S. Marine Corps, the Defense and Logistics Agency, Leidos, Raytheon, Lockheed Martin and others.
