Business process management and workflow automation began within the manufacturing arena but have spread into other industries due to the many benefits they offer. Automating processes, managing documents, and meeting compliance regulations have become the concerns of growing enterprises looking to technology based BPM software.
What problems are businesses looking to resolve with business process management software? What are the advantages of automating processes with BPM software? Here’s what we know:
4 Advantages of BPM Software Implementation
Problem 1: Processes are redundant and inefficient
BPM software allows the automation of paper heavy or manually driven processes in order to streamline the processes. Many workflows follow the same patterns, so automating them can make them more efficient and reduce errors. For example, using responsive dynamic electronic forms creates consistency in reporting. These eforms can be filtered into searchable databases with varying permissions accessible by the user. This means less double entry, less potential errors, and searchable consistent reports.
Problem 2: Management decisions made based on outdated data
By automating processes with BPM software, management can see what’s happening to workflows in real time. This means they can more easily discover bottle necks in the process and even intervene, if needed to keep things running smoothly. Process Timeline, Process Director’s patented business process automation technology allows for the use predictive data to capture and correct issues faster, avoiding down time.
Problem 3: Slippery compliance
Industries faced with compliance demands must have systems in place to keep consistent records, and have them archived and searchable. Compliance automation software can allow for built in accountability, user permissions to access specific information, alerts/notifications, reporting capabilities and document history. Process Director’s compliance automation features allow you for enhanced audit support and enhanced authentication help organizations operate fluid dynamic processes ensuring they are in compliance with regulations and auditors.
