Workflow + Scheduling (for People & Systems)

CEITON is the world’s leading creator of integrated software for planning, controlling and billing of complex business processes.


The goal of the system is to organize the flow of information between people, companies and systems so speed, transparency, controllability, efficiency and quality are achieved.


The solution is so flexible that it is currently used out-of-the-box by companies with just ten employees, yet also highly customized by multinational corporations.


Unrestricted modeling allows the platform to be implemented in the most diverse production and service processes: from TV and post production, through engineering and IT, to banking and pharmaceutical workflows through auditing and quality management.


Last but not least, patented technologies enable the use of the entire system in a regular web-browser: making it accessible user-friendly, anywhere, at any time.
