Wexflow is a high performance, extensible and modular workflow engine with a cross-platform manager and designer. The goal of Wexflow is to automate recurring tasks without user intervention. With the help of Wexflow, building automation and workflow processes become easy. Wexflow also helps in making the long-running processes straightforward.

Wexflow aims to make automations, workflow processes, long-running processes and interactions between systems, applications and folks easy, straightforward and clean. The communication between systems or applications becomes easy through this powerful workflow engine.

Wexflow makes use of Quartz.NET open source job scheduling system that is used in large scale entreprise systems. Thus, Wexflow offers felixibility in planning workflow jobs such as cron workflows.

Furthermore, Wexflow makes use of LiteDB NoSQL Document Store database in its server and back office which enhance and improve the performance of this workflow engine.
