FlowCentric launches innovative process management tool for bulking the power of Sage ERP
FlowCentric Technologies, a leading South Africa-based developer of smart business process management (BPM) solutions, has launched an end-to-end BPM solution designed specifically to optimise Sage ERP accounting and enterprise resource planning (ERP) technologies.
The solution, FloPac, enables companies to optimise their investment in Sage ERP software by providing workflow-enabled processes to automate and control business processes not inherently handled by Sage ERP.
“Integrated with Sage ERP, the solution makes businesses run with optimum efficiency,” says FlowCentric Technologies CEO Jacques Wessels, who officially introduced the innovative tool at the Sage Insights Solution Provider Conference 2012, held at Champagne Resort, in the Drakensberg, KwaZulu-Natal, from 9 to 12 February.
FlowCentric Technologies' team is now 'on tour' to showcase FloPac at Sage ERP End User Conferences in Durban, Cape Town and Johannesburg.
Wessels believes FloPac is a valuable and logical solution for any company utilising Sage ERP. Boosted with FloPac, Sage ERP becomes an integrated solution for managing all aspects of a business, from everyday tasks like travel requests, stationery orders and capital expenditure, to implementing and monitoring enterprise-wide processes for improving internal communication and collaboration; ensuring adherence with internal and external service level agreements; improving response to customer issues, and enhancing service quality. These processes can be effectively monitored in real-time to identify issues and bottlenecks, and track performance.
FloPac also helps prevent costly mishaps, indiscretions and delays through enforced segregation of duties, strict legislative conformance, and by enforcing employee compliance with business rules, policies and procedures.
The solution features easy-to-use, Web-based user dashboards. These can be customised to deliver a single view of the various disparate business applications appropriate to the end-user, and provide a vantage point for managing tasks.
“FloPac goes beyond mapping workflow and ERP to fully integrate and automate a company's systems and people through appropriate processes. It provides a unified solution for managing and controlling the processes that are typically executed through a combination of ERP systems, spreadsheets and documents.
“The by-products of tighter control and enhanced visibility of all aspects of the business are enhanced efficiency, quicker turnaround times, reduced costs, and empowered, productive employees. It's what every company wants from the rules, procedures and systems they have in place but battle to accomplish without the use of an effective, integrated BPM tool like FloPac,” says Wessels.
FloPac is distributed via the Sage ERP Partner Network.
