Today's business environment demands that organizations redouble their efforts to improve the efficiency of processes that have a positive impact on financial performance.
Organizations looking to grow revenue and decrease costs are increasingly using Business Process Management (BPM) to reach their goals. According to Gartner, 80% of enterprises using BPM will experience an internal rate of return better than 15 per cent.
Increasingly, Business Process Management is seen as a bottom line enterprise application and studies have shown that the ROI on BPM projects has been fantastic, with clients reporting initial ROIs in the range of 100% to 300% and payback timeframes of 6 to 12 months. This is because successful BPM projects are not technology decisions, they are business decisions. Business buyers rave about the ROI and often report 10-times ROI than their counterparts that buy BPM like it was an operating system or some other mundane infrastructure technology.
ROI is typically thought of as the measure of cost reduction or profit increase directly attributed to the investment taken. Commonly, when enterprise professionals discuss the ROI of an investment, they are mostly thinking of “financial” benefits. Today, organizations must also consider the “non financial” benefits of an investment.
Financial Benefits include impacts on the organization’s budget and finances, e.g., cost reductions or revenue increases. This is one aspect of ROI.
Non Financial Benefits are the so-called “intangibles”, “soft”, or “unquantifiable” benefits of an investment. These benefits can represent real ROI and include effects on business operations and productivity that do not directly translate into increased positive cash flow. These non financial benefits are most often centered on business critical activities required to meet the customer, partner or regulatory requirements of doing business. In this case, ROI represents the sustaining of the company’s business rather than increased profit or reduced costs.
SoftExpert BPM software produces positive impacts on five primary categories: Automation, Quality, Compliance, Management and Optimization (cost reduction / performance improvement). These include improved customer satisfaction, enhanced organizational agility, better access to resources and information, and shorter cycle-time.
The benefits calculation for BPM can be both direct, like reduction of workloads for existing staff, and indirect, like productivity or improved quality. Both should be measured for BPM business case efforts.
In conclusion, the majority of projects that have deployed SoftExpert BPM have been successful. There are many reasons for this. The solution offers substantive ROI benefits to three essential communities: the IT/Developer community; the business stakeholder; and the end user. If you combine the ROI effects for these three communities, you can easily get improvement ranging from low double digit benefits (10% and more) to well into the triple digits. This, of course depends on the project and type of application or deployment. But the key message remains that BPM ROI is real and can substantially improve the productivity of IT, the performance visibility as well as performance control for the business owners, and the efficiency of the end user through streamlining tasks and reducing potential errors.
