Welcome to the User's Guide to Scheer PAS BPaaS, the digitization component of the Scheer Process Automation Suite.

BPaaS enables your departments to design business processes quickly and easily and create custom applications without prior knowledge.

With this guide, users of Scheer PAS BPaaS have a free and comprehensive reference book at their disposal for working with the business platform.
