San Diego, CA – August 18, 2010 – BP Logix, a developer of BPM software that accelerates time-to-value, today announced the availability of Process Director 2.0. Designed to improve operational effectiveness by providing process intelligence, Process Director enables organizations to embrace the predictive element in business processes, leading to greater efficiency and better decision-making. Process Director enables business users to review historical and current data, understand activities in their present state and to instantly deploy alternative tactics to overcome a pending problem. This comprehensive approach, which includes the predictive analytics that form the basis of BP Logix Process Timeline™ technology, improves business agility. Combined with traditional flowchart-based workflows, Process Director offers a powerful, business-friendly solution for controlling key business processes.

Fusing traditional workflow automation, which uses a simple drag-and-drop flowchart builder, with the Process Timeline™ system, which features an intuitive Gantt–like activity layout, Process Director enables process builders to easily specify activity dependencies and conditions, planned duration, and order. For running processes, Process Timeline™ gives process owners complete control including the ability to:

  • Predict the completion time of any current or future activity
  • Cancel an activity or process
  • Reassign an activity to another user
  • Restart an activity

Process Director also incorporates a graphical rules engine which defines the policies and rules that govern how processes should perform. The business rules exist independent of the processes, enabling users to delegate the management of those rules in accordance with the principle of least privilege. With Process Director:

  • Business users can modify rules easily without the need for IT involvement
  • Rule definitions are reusable
  • Business Rules are seamlessly integrated into eForms, process automation and reporting functions
  • Changes to business rules take effect immediately on running processes
  • A rules-based evaluation of activities and workflow tasks is provided
  • Users can define exceptions to Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)

Process Director shifts business process management (BPM) to the direct control of business users, eliminating the need for further software development. “We knew that we wanted a tool that was dynamic, could handle complex rules yet be simple to administer. We looked at a number of different solutions. Once we spoke with BP Logix regarding the functionality and cost of Process Director, we quickly determined that it was the strongest and best product to meet both our short-and long-term needs,” commented Madhu Kolavennu, Associate Director of Client Technologies for Leo Burnett-Arc Worldwide.

According to independent research firm, Forrester Research, Inc. in the May 14, 2008 report entitled “How the Convergence of Business Rules, BPM and BI Will Drive Business Optimization”, Many processes require deciding between two or more options with some processes needing more than one important decision. Information analysis tools help identify and predict business situations that require choices and drive automated decisions to resolve them. The emphasis in these applications is on ‘in-line analysis’ within processes, or on the after-the-fact reporting that is often associated with the term ‘BI.’

“Customers will continue to look for solutions that help them accomplish faster and higher returns,” stated Edward Skiko, CEO of BP Logix, Inc. “They seek to understand the results of their BPM processes, want analytics to determine the context of the processes and want conditions for the rules that govern these processes. BP Logix is pleased to provide the Process TimelineTM technology which addresses all of these needs and enables business users to make faster and more accurate decisions,” he added.
