The presentation of the prestigious “Global Awards for Excellence in BPM & Workflow 2015” to the Ministry of the Interior, for the BPM model implementation carried out by AuraPortal, was held yesterday in Colombia. Helmut Bellingrodt, Solution Advisor and Country Manager, presented the award to, Carmen Inés Vásquez, Vice Minister of Colombia. Lorena Rios Cuellar, Coordinator of Religious Affairs for the Ministry of the Interior and some members of her team were also present.
Co-sponsored by the Workflow Management Coalition (WfMC) and BPM.com, these annual awards recognize the best implementation projects for innovative BPM and workflow solutions worldwide.
The Ministry of the Interior of Colombia successfully completed the complex project to automate Religious Affairs processes without needing to program a single line of code.
The online processes came into operation on the AuraPortal iBPMS platform eliminating the confusion that surrounded the difficult access to information on religious entities.
Both the Ministry and citizens are pleased with the results.
the average completion time for the entire process has reduced from 15 days (before the software implementation) to 1 minute. Furthermore, management costs have reduced by an average of 80%, thanks to workflow coordination and the automation of the majority of the process activities.
In addition to the quantifiable benefits, such as time and cost savings and quality improvement, the implementation of AuraPortal has achieved other benefits that, although may not be quantifiable, are just as important, such as: closing the gap between the government and the citizens, The fight against corruption, Transparency, Less Paperwork, Optimization of civil servant activities
