We’re delighted to announce we have been awarded a place on the UK Government’s G-Cloud 9 framework.

What is G-Cloud 9?

G-Cloud 9 is an initiative targeted at streamlining the procurement of cloud services by public sector organisations. It offers:

  • An OJEU compliant framework agreement with suppliers, from which public sector organisations can procure cloud services without needing to run a full tender, RFQ, ITT or procurement process
  • An online store called the ‘Digital Marketplace’ that allows public sector organisations to search for services that are covered by the G-Cloud framework
SharePoint is not BPM software

SharePoint is not BPM software

Is your organisation currently using SharePoint or are you searching for a better option? Find out why Process Director by BP Logix is the perfect SharePoint alternative.

Although Microsoft SharePoint includes some basic workflow functionality out-of-the-box, as well as development tools for developing more advanced workflows, it is often not the best business process management (BPM) solution to manage, monitor and optimise workflows and business processes.

In fact, organisations that selected SharePoint for its collaboration, file sharing and publishing capabilities are now looking for an BPM alternative for automating and monitoring anything beyond the most basic workflow scenarios.

The SharePoint eForm and workflow tools available to non-developers can work for very basic requirements for inward-facing processes or where customisation is not required but once you need to handle the many complications that exist in day-to-day business activities, SharePoint requires development skills.

These skills are beyond most business users and it soon becomes apparent that if an investment in developers, project managers and infrastructure to support SharePoint development is going to be made, SharePoint alone is rarely sufficient to justify this cost. This is why there are many products available that describe themselves as SharePoint add-ons.

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

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.
