Business Excellence, Quality and Their Costs

AuraPortal presents an innovative methodology to achieve business excellence at the lowest cost through the automation of business processes.

Boca Raton, Florida, May 24, 2013 – AURA (, a global provider of Business Process Management (BPM) software, has announced the launch of an innovative methodology that, applied to a Business Process Management suite like AuraPortal, helps to ensure strict compliance with Regulations, thus reducing management costs to a minimum.

AuraPortal has been distinguished with great advantage over its competitors by Ovum, the renowned analyst firm, in its Decision Matrix (2011) report.

Business Excellence is only possible if the Quality concept filters through all the actions taken in an organization. But this requires many resources and the cost is often beyond the possibilities of any company.

Using a BPM suite, the entity’s Quality policy is converted into automated management processes, which leads to a scrupulous conformity with standards. The system itself induces conformity, as it marks the steps to follow.

These processes should not only be designed taking the Regulations into consideration; they should also include quality assurance controls, and actions (most of them automatic) to be performed if breaches should occur.

This way, the appropriate actions will be automatically put in place to ensure strict compliance, with a drastic reduction in risk, work (cost) and response times. This involves virtually no additional work to what is already performed in the company’s daily operations.

Furthermore, as external users also participate in business processes receiving and sending tasks, integrated quality compliance is ensured.

The BPM suite is responsible for registering and showing real situations to the process supervisors and the company management (times, delays or advances, deviations regarding patterns, costs, etc.) from all processes while they are running, without waiting for subsequent audits.

This information is used by the Dashboard to monitor the BAM (Business Activity Monitoring) and BI (Business Intelligence), issuing data which is evaluated to continuously optimize the system, modifying the processes and business rules accordingly.
