Business process management System, or BPMS, can be an intimidating concept. That’s understandable, considering the many explanations out there that are riddled with jargons most people don’t have the time or patience to dig deep into.

Despite the proliferation of team-based software and other tools to facilitate interdepartmental functions, a lot of businesses are still tackling their operations the traditional way – traditional, in this sense, meaning standalone business management solutions for every business function (HR, Finance, IT Helpdesk, Software Development, Sales and Marketing, and the like).

Almost everyone who works with emails on a daily basis and uses their email client as the main instrument for tracking their work, knows about the “Follow Up” feature. I have used this feature for several years in Microsoft Outlook and Mozilla Thunderbird (via extension).

Your work information is interconnected and can be used by all departments when you use Comindware Tracker. All data is available across the application, including files, reports, invoices, requests, lists of objects, client cards and anything else you might need for your personal and collaborative team work.

When it comes to automation, quite often different departments use different systems for their specific work. This way, when, for example, sales use SalesForce, marketing uses Marketo, accountants use Workday , HR uses HRtribe – whenever they need to do any kind of common project, they don’t have visibility into each other’s data. They start to solve the problem with the help of Excel files and emails which compromises the very idea of automated systems use. Whenever integration of the systems is in question, it is a timely and costly solution.
