What is Business Process Management (BPM) and how can it help me and the business?

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.

The Power to Make It Happen

By leveraging data and functionality provided by existing applications, automated business processes can be created and implemented without having to alter the underlying configuration of a company’s applications or IT infrastructure. TaskCentre merely uses these applications as information services and workflow trigger points.

Automated Product Inquiry Management example:



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 (EVENT), ODBC Tool (INPUT), Run Crystal Tool (FORMAT) and Send SMTP Tool (OUTPUT).

TaskCentre is 64-bit Windows based software, utilizing a true three-tier client server model over TCP/IP, with a multi-threaded server running as a Windows Service.

Automated Email Archiving for Infor CRM - Archiving Attachments

A simple to use configuration web page provides CRM administrators with the ability to set various options. Through one click they can choose to archive all emails, or refine their choice to either inbound and/or outbound. Furthermore they can also choose to archive all associated attachments, or only attachments associated with inbound and/or outbound emails.

A further enhancement of this task is to allow BPA for Infor CRM to automatically archive email attachments based on their size. If the attachment is too large then an automated Workflow is created requesting approval to archive the attachment. Any attachments smaller than the defined size are archived automatically
