I recently had the pleasure of meeting and talking to the CIO of a multi-national company about his future needs. He was sure that he had no need for BPM because if he did he would use the ERP workflow!
We have a dog at home, a cairn terrier. The kids love him and he seems to like them, no one bitten yet. The trouble with terriers is that they are runners. When you open the front door, if you don’t have a good grip on him he bolts down the driveway and disappears.
A couple of weeks ago I was standing around at a BBQ with the rest of the men drinking beer and watching the host burn the meat. Anyway, as usual with new acquaintances I found myself in the “so what do you do for a crust?” conversation.
In a previous post, I sought to be able to explain XMPro; simply, without the techno speak, and how it can make a positive difference to your business. I spent last weekend walking a portion of the Great North Walk. This was my opportunity to refine my explanations of XMPro.

In our house I am the chief dishwasher stacker. There is no argument. I do it better. Of course, few people argue to do a tedious job at all, so maybe I am delusional. But I think not.
I have recently been privileged to participate in the process of product selection by two best in class organisations. It is my experience each time you deal with such organisations you always have learns and are reminded there is no substitute for doing a process properly.

I believe there are a number of reasons why XMPro will genuinely achieve your business improvement goals better than any other BPM software you may consider.
XMPro will handle 100% of your business processes completely. Any other system could easily fail to fully address up to 50% or even more of your needs. Why is this?
Are you old enough to remember the job bag? Maybe you called it something else but fundamentally it was a big manila envelope into which was stuffed every relevant document, form, approval and paper scrap for a particular job.
