Business Process Management in broad terms is the automation of those employee activities that cost the company valuable time and money. All businesses today are dependent on people extracting, formatting and distributing business information from business applications. Yet, people have physical limitations, they are prone to illness and unfortunately make mistakes.
Business Process Management technology is the IT industry's response to the problems created by employee-dependant applications. Directors, managers, suppliers and customers expect instant responses to real-time commercial interactions and business process management technology leverages all the organization's IT systems by creating a real-time, responsive infrastructure.
Why are organizations demanding TaskCentre v4?
Organizations are demanding Orbis Software's Business Process Management (BPM) Suite, TaskCentre v4, because of its proven ability to immediately reduce operational costs and substantially increase productivity. All company applications present the employee with an 'opportunity' to do something i.e. run a report, escalate an issue or produce and deliver compliance documents, but with TaskCentre v4 these procedures are dynamically triggered and achieved, without fail and to company rules or policies. Indeed, with customers expecting richer information, accountability becoming increasingly important and departmental workloads outstripping physical resources, companies are now strategically automating their critical business processes to increase productivity, save time and reduce costs.

How does Business Process Management (BPM) Software work?
Business Process Management Software works by 'loosely coupling' with a company's existing applications which enables it to monitor, extract, format and distribute information to systems and people; in line with business events or rules.
By leveraging the processes and information of existing applications, automated business processes can be configured and re-configured without having to alter the underlying configuration of a company's applications. TaskCentre merely uses these applications as information services and workflow trigger points.
Creating or re-creating an automated business process is achieved via any PC on which TaskCentre is installed through its intuitive and logical Graphical User Interface (GUI). This GUI enables an administrator to automate common employee-driven processes, such as creating and sending end-of-week sales reports, by simply dragging and dropping Tools into a sequence that emulates the employee process, i.e. Schedule Tool, ODBC Tool, Run Crystal Tool and Send SMTP Tool.
