Business Rules

All businesses are rule-centric. Rules are what determine which opportunities are pursued or left behind. They determine how things are priced, who is allowed to approve or deny, or even who is hired. The flow of information, materials, projects, and money are all based on rules. The Decisions’ rule engine together with our workflow engine, help you organize, automate, and optimize your business rules in an easy to understand, no-code environment.

Scoring

Many business opportunities require a sophisticated set of rules that when combined will produce a score that can be used to rank those opportunities. Our scoring rules allow your organization to produce complex scores, such as credit scores, loan approvals, or product prices that are based on any number of intricate rules defined by your organization.

Validation

Ensuring clean data is vital to optimizing any workflow. Our integrated rules engine allows you to validate data throughout your process. Rules can be combined with forms, to ensure clean data at the point of entry. Rules combined with workflow can ensure clean data as it flows between different users and/or systems.
 

Data Cleaning

Data cleanup is a cinch with Decisions. Our forms builder is integrated with our rules engine to ensure data is clean at the point of entry. Additionally, our rules engine can be combined with workflow to pull data from your database, apply filters, transform data, and replace it in one or more systems.

Contract Rule Automation

Manage your contracts and ensure compliance with all internal company requirements and/or external regulations. The Decisions platform is regularly used to capture meta-data surrounding contracts and measuring performance against these metrics.
 

Pricing

Customer pricing is often a complex process that requires a variety of inputs to generate an optimal price. The Decisions sophisticated rules engine can be used to automatically generate customer prices based on your rules and parameters that are entered by either your sales team or your customers directly. You can even initiate workflows, based on custom parameters, to notify the appropriate people in your organization if special pricing conditions exist. For example, in the event that management approval is required.

Policy Enforcement

Ensuring compliance with company policy can be cumbersome at times. Decisions can be used to automate your business rules and to create workflows that enforce your policies. For example, purchase approval policies based on emails and spreadsheets can be systematized to route approvals to the relevant decision-makers in your organization based on your business policies.
 

Recommendation Engine

Give your sales a kick-start by building a recommendation engine powered by the Decisions’ rules engine. Our rules engine can be used to determine which products are promoted to your customers based on their search history, their purchase history, what discounts are available, or any other number of criteria defined by your market characteristics.

Fraud Detection

With the Decisions’ enterprise-class rules engine, automatically reviewing millions of data records to detect potential fraud is made easy. Rules can be established to check records against any number of criteria. You can generate true/false outcomes, weight the rule to generate a risk probability, or begin workflows to notify and involve people when potential fraud is identified.
 

Compliance Management/Regulatory

Internal audit checklists, follow-up tasks, and even regulatory document creation can be accomplished with Decisions. Maintaining all compliance documentation and resulting evidence in one place will make your audit ready at all times.

Embedded Rule Engine

Have you simply lost track of all your application logic? Is it taking too long to figure out where certain business logic lives and how to change it? By moving business logic to a rules engine, you can not only keep all the logic in one place but turn it over to the business to maintain.
