HENNGE Adds a Cloud-based Ringi and Workflow System, "kickflow" to the linkage solutions of HENNGE One2021.12.09

HENNGE K.K. (headquarters: Shibuya, Tokyo, Representative Director, Chief Executive Officer: Kazuhiro Ogura, "HENNGE") is pleased to announce that its SaaS authentication platform (IDaaS), "HENNGE One", now supports "kickflow", which is a cloud-based ringi and workflow system provided by kickflow, Inc. Ringi is a traditional decision-making process in Japanese companies, circulating papers to multiple divisions and obtaining approvals of parties concerned.

By adding kickflow to the linkage solutions of HENNGE One, companies utilizing HENNGE One benefit from single sign-on to kickflow without the hassle of managing multiple IDs and passwords. Also, users are able to utilize kickflow safely as the access control features of HENNGE One, such as IP control and two-step authentication, prevent unauthorized access.

HENNGE will continue to expand its support for the SaaS services which work with its SaaS authentication platform (IDaaS), HENNGE One, and to assist the convenient and safe introduction of SaaS by companies.

■ About kickflow
kickflow is an innovative cloud-based ringi and workflow system targeted to medium and large-size companies. It simplifies ringi and approval procedures of companies without using paper and company seals. Based on the hearing conducted to hundreds of companies, kickflow provides flexibility to support variations of three key areas where many companies recognize as complicated and problematic, which are "approval forms and approval routes", "organizations and their decision-making authorities" and "external linkage (API)". kickflow enhances the efficiency of company internal procedures and workflow and accelerates companies' management speed and growth of a business.

■ About kickflow, Inc.
The history of ringi and workflow systems (in Japan) is long and its digitization has been pursued since the 2000's. On the other hand, solutions for medium and large size companies are mostly provided on premise and there are not a lot of cloud-based options which replace traditional systems. This is becoming a major issue as many companies urge their employees to work remotely due to the COVID-19 pandemic. kickflow conducted hearing from hundreds of companies, identified three key bottleneck areas of the latest ringi process, and develops the SaaS ringi and workflow "kickflow" to specifically resolve such bottlenecks.
