OpCon Self Service is an add-on module that distills any workflow, even the most complicated, to a simple button.

Make life better for everyone
With Self Service automation, everyone becomes more productive. End users are able to execute a wide variety of automated tasks easily and instantly. Activate a presentation. Automate password resets. Send event-triggered emails. Create templated files. Onboard or offboard employees. Temporarily suspend user credentials for audits and compliance. Whatever needs to be done, click, it’s done.
Self-service automation makes life better for your IT team, too. With end-users fully empowered, IT is no longer bombarded with calls and emails.
Your tech pros aren’t ambushed at the coffee station and pulled into time-eating tasks to fix issues or walk employees through confusing procedures. With this workflow orchestration tool, everything in the workplace just clicks.
Secure systems simply
The OpCon administrator can create buttons according to each user’s workflow responsibilities thanks to role-based access control within the workflow orchestration software. Classifying buttons by role makes everything easier for the user, and much safer for the company. If there are multiple stages in a workflow, certain buttons can be grayed out and made unclickable to certain users, so each person can see his or her role in the overall workflow and how the sequence is progressing.
You also have the option to allow mobile access to certain buttons while keeping other workflows behind your firewall. Authorized users are able to perform tasks without lugging laptops around everywhere they go. Users can also remotely transfer privileges to the responsible party on duty.
Give end-users access with total confidence thanks to self-service automation
A single point of control for all your business systems
