Project workflow systems allow businesses to streamline and optimize business processes, and they form a key component of Business Process Management (BPM) solutions. They are especially powerful when combined with effective, collaborative task management functionality and real-time visibility on workflows.
Traditional project workflow solutions, particularly when they are part of a larger BPM solution, are notoriously expensive and frequently take a huge IT effort to deploy.
Even with a relatively smooth deployment, there are frequently issues and a sense of failure to meet organizational expectations. Closer to the norm is a huge cost, frequently more than anticipated, deployment headaches, a delayed operational launch timeline, plus delayed time to achieve positive ROI.
So what is the solution?
Lean BPM has been pioneered by Swift Software, and our flagship product is JobTraQ.
JobTraQ is currently successfully deployed by NASA, the US Food & Drug Administration, Royal Bank of Scotland, Raytheon, Lockheed Martin and many more clients.
Why did they deploy JobTraQ and not go for a more traditional project workflow solution?
Here are some of the common reasons why JobTraQ is chosen over traditional BPM competitors:
Freedom from the IT Department – No Major Deployment Ramp Up
JobTraQ is simple to deploy, whether it be an OnPrem installation or using our SaaS offering.
There is no major IT involvement in deployment, though clients almost always involve IT as a sanity check on what the operational leadership is actually doing. Aside from this, there is no substantive need for IT when deploying JobTraq, and even with an OnPrem deployment, IT’s role is typically limited to setting up a server and little more.
Time required for deployment is also minimal – JobTraQ can be deployed within weeks of making the purchasing decision.
TCO of JobTraQ is a Fraction of Traditional Workflow/BPM Solutions
JobTraQ typically costs around 20-30% of traditional BPM alternatives at the deployment stage, however this drops further when the low support costs and recurring licensing fees are added into the mix.
While JobTraQ functions as an out-of-the-box solution, it is fully customizable.
Customizable in the sense that you can create workflows on the fly using JobTraQ as is, but also customizable from a coding perspective too.
We have customers who have created operational workflows using just the demonstration version, and assigned staff to do real work using them.
We also have customers who have engaged us in extensive customizations to integrate with their own in-house and 3rd party applications.
JobTraQ can be customized howsoever you wish, and with robust, rich APIs, it will work with anything.
User Adoption & Support
JobTraQ has an excellent track record of high and fast user adoption rates. It is simple to use, and we have many, many customers who are only too happy to talk about how great JobTraQ is in practice.
