    Key Benefits

    Why should you want to work with an online EA Tool, BPMN Tool or PM Tool like Dragon1?

    First of all: Dragon1 beats working with Excel, PowerPoint, Visio and freeware modeling tools, as they are not meant to support working with architecture. They do not increase your productivity or guide you in creating stakeholder-oriented views of the architecture with high-quality data.

    Dragon1 has everything a business professional needs and wants in an online business platform: Visio & Excel import, templates, tutorials, examples and checklists. All these ingredients make you much more productive.

    The database repository makes sure your data is of higher quality and you reuse data more often. The fact that Dragon1 is online will increase your sustainability and the fact that you can visualize architecture in a context of strategy and transition enables you to control risks more. And because we have added gamification, Dragon1 is also more easy to use than other tools. So you have every reason to choose Dragon1 as your EA Tool, BPM Tool or PM Tool!

    • Increase operational result by reducing process dependencies using overviews.
    • Increase customer experience by implementing strategic changes successfully using road maps.
    • Expand to new markets by successfully introducing a new product using integral solution designs.
    • Manage projects risks better because they all made visual using landscape maps.
    • Be more productive: work anytime, anyplace, anywhere using an online platform.
