BPM Tools Guide
Learn how Business Process Management (BPM) tools can help your business improve efficiency, accuracy, and productivity to be more competitive.
BPM, or Business Process Management, has been around for a long time but the tools used to implement the practice have gone through a lot of changes, especially over the last few years. Once a fairly straightforward toolset that allowed technical business analysts or IT professionals to sequence work using complex software or code, BPM tools have become much easier to use while doing much more.
BPM tools give organizations the ability to rapidly build scalable, automated workflows and processes as part of a single departmental automation project or as part of a large-scale corporate initiative to implement a process management methodology across the enterprise. BPM tools are often confused with BPM itself, which is a discipline, not a software tool.
These BPM (business process management) tools provide visual, low- or no-code functionality that allows business users (not just IT professionals) to define processes, automate tasks, design dynamic, mobile-friendly forms, and deploy portals that allow employees and customers the ability to use these processes as applications.
Some examples of processes that can be automated using BPM software tools by department:
New Hire Management
Employee On/Off Boarding
IS Service Requests
Security Access Requests
Software Change Requests
New Project Requests
Marketing Campaign Approvals
Print/Online Ad Requests
Marketing Collateral Approvals
Move and Expansion Requests
Capital Purchase Approvals
Features will vary depending on the provider. Some tools may include the ability to use artificial intelligence (AI) or connect to the Internet of Things (IoT), and others may offer sophisticated process modeling tools that can predict outcomes based on the process design.
