I've had processmaker in a small installation for a couple of years now and I had been running on the same server as some other content related apps like Wordpress and SuiteCRM. I had to go to PHP 7 for the latest version of SuiteCRM and that has broken Processmaker. Wordpress could handle the upgrade to 7 as well (almost seamlessly) so that wasn't a problem.
While integration with SuiteCRM was a very nice to have feature, I bit the bullet and even tried to install PM in isolation on one of the supported stacks. However, I have so far spent many, many, many hours trying to find a combination of environments that work. Even the supported Centos stack I haven't been able to get working because of the database requirement for a version of MYSQL that is no longer supported on EL7. The documentation for the installation instructions on that stack are out of date and now wrong. I've spent many, many, many hours of frustration, just trying to get a working system back again. And I still haven't managed to...
So that's my reasoning for why PHP7.0 is important.
