Ultimus, the leading provider of Business Process Management (BPM) and Workflow Automation software and services that enable the shortest time to value, today announced the release of the Ultimus Dashboard for Microsoft SharePoint, which enables organizations to display key business and process reports for visibility across the entire enterprise. The Ultimus Dashboard integrates business and process data in a unified report, empowering executives with insight into countless activities within their individual departments or across the enterprise.
According to Gartner, “the popularity of (Business Activity Monitoring (BAM)), combined with BPM tools, is expected to rise, because along with process awareness comes the need to monitor critical milestones in the business process.” (Gartner, Gartner Study Reveals Business Activity Monitoring´s Growing Value, 18 April 2006, Bill Gassman)
The Ultimus BPM Suite enables organizations to automate thousands of processes, resulting in improved productivity and accuracy, lower costs and higher customer satisfaction. By combining the new Ultimus Dashboard with the Ultimus BPM Suite, businesses across a range of industries can create an ideal platform for automating, deploying and monitoring critical business processes. Users can quickly check the detailed status of process incidents and task execution in real time.
Key features include:
· Easy deployment. The Ultimus Dashboard uses standard Microsoft SharePoint Web Parts and is easily deployable on any SharePoint portal page.
· Powerful customization. The Ultimus Dashboard can organize and display data in any way desired to help achieve a better understanding of business activity levels and trends. For example, a purchasing officer can generate detailed reports to stratify purchase order requests across departments.
· Full-featured creation window. Report authors can quickly create custom reports via an intuitive point-and-click interface.
· End-to-end process monitoring. The Ultimus Dashboard gives users the ability to check the status of process incidents they have initiated, and gives workflow managers the ability to view both overall Ultimus BPM Server activity and detailed incident and task activity.
“The Ultimus BPM Suite has long been a resource for those looking to streamline processes for maximum efficiency,” said Jeff Smith, Chief Process Officer of Ultimus, Inc. “Now the Ultimus Dashboard takes this to the next level, giving managers a keen understanding of the impact of business and process decisions in an easy to use reporting environment.”
