10 reasons why efficient workflow is a critical tool for your business

Written by Alan Ingram on Tuesday, 09 August 2016. Posted in Business Process Management, Workflow automation

During the course of our partnership with customers, there is usually a point that constitutes the “aha” moment. It is at that time they realise the importance and value of planning and mapping out an optimised workflow.

While few dispute the need for workflow, it usually requires seeing the workflow planned out before people spot and tackle what are minor discussion points at the planning stage, but would be business show-stoppers during production.

Developing your workflow has challenges; it’s like planning the world’s largest reception and taking into consideration every plate, glass, napkin, hors d’oeuvres, beverage and the thousands of other details that must be coordinated beforehand. Planning the reception mandates viewing the event holistically yet acting with singular precision.

How will the Safe Harbor ruling effect your business?

How will the Safe Harbor ruling effect your business?

Written by Richard Adams on Wednesday, 14 October 2015. Posted in Data capture, Safe Harbor

Last week, the European Court of Justice (CJEU) ruled the ‘Safe Harbor Privacy Principles’ invalid.

This decision was reached after Max Schrems, an Austrian citizen, filed a complaint with the Irish Data Protection Commissioner, asking them to prohibit Facebook from transferring his personal data to the US after Edward Snowden claimed the US did not adequately protect personal data from NSA surveillance activities.

The ruling has potentially far-reaching consequences on businesses who transfer data across the Atlantic.

Process Director by BP Logix recognised in the Gartner 'Magic Quadrant for iBPMS' for 2015

Process Director by BP Logix recognised in the Gartner 'Magic Quadrant for iBPMS' for 2015

Written by Alan Ingram on Monday, 12 October 2015. Posted in Business Process Management, Process Director, Gartner Magic Quadrant for iBPMS

ePC is pleased to announce Process Director by BP Logix has been recognised by Gartner in the “Magic Quadrant for Intelligent Business Process Management Suites (iBPMS) 2015″.

According to the report, the iBPMS market is the natural evolution of the earlier BPMS market, adding more emphasis on support for greater system and human intelligence within business processes. Capabilities such as “what if” process simulation, optimisation and the ability to gain insight into process performance have been included in many BPMS offerings for several years. iBPMSs have added enhanced support for human collaboration, integration with social media, mobile access to processes, more analytics and real-time decision management. An iBPMS orchestrates work to produce business outcomes that go far beyond typical process efficiency and performance measures.

For its 2015 iBPMS Magic Quadrant, Gartner evaluated platforms based on their ability to orchestrate increasingly complex work styles.

Gartner noted, BP Logix Process Timeline technology provides the process owner with key insights into the behaviour of each process instance. If, at any point, it determines that any future task—or the process as a whole—is in danger of running late, then Process Director can take action directly, or notify the process owner to intercede manually. Process Timeline is easy to use and flexible. Tasks can be linked dynamically using rules or by identifying predecessors. Ad-hoc and improvisational tasks can be easily added to a process as needed. Additionally, BP Logix Elastic BPM cloud is offered in single-tenant and multi-tenant deployments. The multi-tenant offering provides an attractive entry point for smaller applications, while the single tenant offering supports more robust enterprise requirements.

BP Logix deserve to be recognised by Gartner as they continue to provide great software with real power that is far more dynamic, flexible and cost effective than many of the quadrant long-timers
