Unorganized business processes can lead to confusion and thus loss of revenue. While back office outsourcing and other services are of great support for organizations, business process management (BPM) software is playing a key role now. Mobile, cloud as well as intelligent business management solutions are now available to support diverse organizations in managing their business processes efficiently. The application of BPM can help with process discovery, creation, implementation, analysis, and improvement.
Properly implemented BPM tools or software allow businesses to improve revenue, achieve compliance, gain competitive advantage, reduce process operation costs and lessen risks. According to a report from Research and Markets, the need for improvement of business processes is a key factor that boosts the growth of Business Process Management as a Service (BPMaaS) market. At the same time, difficulty in choosing suitable solutions is the market challenge users face.
Automation capabilities of these tools help with routing of data and sequential execution of tasks, without any manual intervention.
While human-centric BPM is for those processes that are primarily executed by humans, document-Centric BPM is required when a document is at the heart of the process.
