The power of process

Value and importance of BPM recognized

You are trying to enable the business to be more streamlined, agile and automated. It starts with better engagement with stakeholders to get agreement on the changes that are required. You can get more achieved with your team by collaborating in live business process mapping sessions.


The pandemic highlighted the importance of being able to quickly monitor, analyze, and adapt business processes. Agility is a diffferentiator.


BPM used to be lengthy process mapping projects. These are being replaced by agile, data-driven methods that can identify quick wins faster.


Robotic Process Automation (RPA) can automate repetitive tasks and reduce lead times for process changes. BPM needs to dovetail with RPA.


BPM is critical for digital transformation and creating new business models. Process mapping is seen as a strategic tool to support business agility and change.


Processes need to adhere to regulatory requirements, reducing the risk of non-compliance and associated penalties.

Customer Experience

 BPM enables organizations to design and implement customer-centric processes that improve satisfaction and loyalty.

Change management

Designing employee-centric processes linked to applications reduces the change management effort required to drive adoption.


GPT enables dramatic improvements in customer experience. But it can also auto-generate process maps and write user stories.

Compliance matters

You don’t need another system for the regulators

Elements provides the features that auditors demand:

  • Diagram access rights
  • Snapshots of changes
  • Version control
  • Change authorization
  • Acknowledgement of changes
  • Training records
  • Links to directory of regulatory clauses e.g. ISO9001

Frequently asked questions

Does Elements have any process or task mining?

Elements does not include and task or process mining capability but what is does include is the ability to auto-generate consistent UPN process diagrams based on your ways of working as described in internal documentation or outputs from these tools.  As such we can capture and manage your ‘as-is’ or ‘should be’ processes  to augment your analysis on improvement, control, automation and compliance.

What are some UPN Best Practices? 

If you want to learn more about UPN best practices, we have written a comprehensive article covering all areas of UPN.

Does Elements use BPMN? 

Elements does not use BPMN notation to describe processes. Elements is a process management and mapping platform designed to engage with a broad set of stakeholders in IT & business. It provides a wide variety of capabilities to allow the analysis of processes for improvement.  We also include a variety of other diagramming types for ‘architecture diagrams’ facilitating a broad understanding of change impact using approaches such as capability mapping, infrastructure mapping, Entity Relationship Diagrams etc. We also have a ‘library’ where associated content (such as your BPMN diagrams) can be stored and managed as they apply to the organisations processes.

What makes Elements different from other Process Management Platforms?

Elements is an Enterprise BPM platform with all the core capability you’d expect such as governed process diagrams, roles, process analysis, risk and control identification, reporting, hierarchical models, collaboration, training, attestation, associated documentation, industry frameworks (such as APQC) etc.  However the 3 things that distinguish Elements are:
