Southpaw Technology

The name Southpaw was chosen to represent the technical advantage of being left handed in many sports (boxing, fencing, baseball and cricket) and even in hand to hand combat! The left-handed founders launched Southpaw Technology to solve workflow problems and give our clients the same Southpaw advantage – by using TACTIC!

Today, we provide intelligent process orchestration solutions that enable enterprises to achieve significant, quantifiable business improvements. Customers gain end-to-end visibility and control over their precious information, assets and data as it is created, used, and changed throughout—and across—complex enterprise processes. We customize these solutions utilizing our unified, open-source TACTIC platform combined with proprietary Southpaw products.

All Southpaw products are based on the open-source TACTIC workflow engine. Southpaw Technology delivers end-to-end visibility and control over information as it is created, used, and changed throughout enterprise processes.

For more than a decade, the company’s technology and service delivery expertise has helped Fortune 500 and other leading companies across a broad range of industries including banking and finance, aerospace, sports apparel, and media industries to optimize efficiency, tighten deliverables, reduce risk, and free employee creativity. 

Southpaw does Enterprise level workflow differently

Traditional workflow automation is largely based on automating manual steps and executing if-this-then-that functions, but Southpaw orchestration solutions go substantially beyond whether it involves a human or machine. The Southpaw platform is the only platform with an end-to-end workflow engine that handles ferociously complex workflows involving millions of assets and multiple data types, data models, and terminologies.

TACTIC Workflow Editor

Deployments blend invisibly into your existing environments without disruption or requiring you to replace costly enterprise applications. With robust APIs, Southpaw solutions knit together disparate interdependent functions, bridge information silos, and deliver end-to-end transparency for all information throughout its entire lifecycle—wherever it’s created, sent, stored and used.

Southpaw understands that workflow, processes, and the resulting outputs are as varied as the businesses and industries that apply them. And that’s just fine with us. We’ve designed our platform to support just about any variable you can think of. Southpaw has expertise in financial services, apparel, aerospace, 3D design, animation, film, media and broadcast industries just to name a few. And their workflow outputs range from visual effects, feature films, video games, ad designs, and content, to engineering models, consumer packaged goods designs, onboarding documents, regulatory audit trails, and literally hundreds of other content and file types that any business in any one of these or other industries might generate.

Enterprise platform providing ultimate flexibility

Using the open source TACTIC intelligent process orchestration platform, Southpaw builds each solution to address your specific workflow challenge. And because TACTIC is highly extensible there is no functional limit to the applications we can build. That means you get the right workflow solution for your unique business needs – no matter the scale or complexity.

With the power of TACTIC, Southpaw helps companies resolve business-critical workflow and asset tracking challenges, and drive material benefits across the whole organization:

  • Accelerate time to market for new products and services to gain  market advantage,
  • Meet customer requirements and exceeding expectations to drive customer satisfaction and retention.
  • Increase process efficiency, accuracy, and accountability across disparate enterprise functions.
  • Support compliance requirements, such as FINRA, GLB, SOX, PCI, GDPR, HIPAA, and others, with improved visibility and accountability for assets.
  • Increase process security to protect intellectual property, sensitive data, and employees.
  • Gain significant process improvements while augmenting existing technology investments and without disruption.
  • Prevent vendor lock-out and platform obsolescence with proven, enterprise-grade open source platform.

Each Southpaw customer engagement is unique, and the Southpaw platform is tailored specifically for each workflow. The Southpaw platform is deployed by a team with unique technical expertise and extensive workflow experience to ensure customer satisfaction and success.

Southpaw solutions power mission-critical information and workflows in customer organizations such as MPC Technicolor, Adidas, The Mayo Clinic, Lockheed Martin, P&G, Viacom, General Dynamics, Warner Brothers, Bell Helicopter and many more.
