Appian Unveils Comprehensive Mobile BPM
July 07, 2011
Appian has announced various improvements to its mobile capabilities with features such as private label branding and platform independence, the company has stated.
Extending its native content management to a mobile world, Appian now allows users to take a picture or upload a document directly into a process from their mobile device. For example, an insurance adjuster can now take the photo of an image of a claim site that can be tied to the full lifecycle of the claim. To be managed like any other content, these documents or images can then be stored in Appian’s content management system.
To drive transformational process improvement – on the desktop or via mobile devices - Appian’s combination of simplicity and power provides everything business users need. To increase agility and collaboration, and accelerate business performance, commercial and government organizations around the globe use Appian.
“Mobility is a key inflection point in enterprise IT,” said Matt Calkins, CEO and president of Appian, in a company press release. “Appian provides an ideal on-ramp for organizations to cost-effectively tap the power of mobility by expanding process participation across the organization, increasing agility and reducing bottlenecks, and meeting the evolving expectations of employees and customers.”
To make important decisions while on the go, Appian allows access to task lists and actions from a mobile device. In the event of a lost or stolen device, Appian features secure network communication and authentication, encrypted local data storage, and remote account disablement, the company stated in a press release.
Recently, the company received the FSO Knowledge Xchange Excellence Award 2011 in the “Excellence in Business Process Management Solutions” category. The proven value it delivers to the financial services industry and its innovative capabilities, including mobile BPM, cloud BPM and social BPM, helped Appian BPM Suite win the prestigious award. An extensive analysis of nominations was conducted by the FSOkx research team and a panel of judges comprised of thought leaders in the financial services industry.Raju Shanbhag is a contributing editor for TMCnet.
