Vehicles and mobility gain an increasing importance in the modern economy – a trend despite of digitalisation and networking. Many sectors of the economy use vehicles as an essential resource in the value creation process. Not only in the logistic industry the fleet management becomes increasingly important for companies. Digital fleet management saves costs and optimizes the usage of company cars. One example is the car-sharing in ecologically-thinking enterprises. So, business processes around mobility are playing an important role in the chain of economic value added.
The Imixs Software Solutions GmbH offers a process management platform for the digital fleet management. The product Imixs-Office-Workflow enables enterprises to organize and optimize all business processes around vehicles. The open source solution is used by a wide variety of companies in many different ways.
Fleet Management by BMW Nordic
In cooperation with the BMW AG Nordic, the Imixs Software Solutions GmbH implemented a centralized workflow management system for the locations of Sweden, Finland, Norway, and Denmark. The solution serves processes around the intra-company used car management.
The exchange of business data and processes allows BMW Nordic to organize document centric work flows around the subject vehicle faster and more flexible. The BPM solution helps to align all processes to existing procedures and company policies. With the help of the open source workflow engine Imixs-Workflow it was possible to speed up the entire process of development and to achieve a total transparency for all employees at various locations. The approval and release of vehicles for internal use or sale can now be controlled transparently over the entire region through multiple organizational units for all employees.
Process Management in the Car Dealership
The lifecycle management in the used car trade is another example where modern process management is mainly involved. A workflow management solution will contribute a significant improvement of business processes in the area of automotive trade and services. With the help of Imixs-Office-Workflow business processes for the purchase and sale of used cars can be managed easily. This includes a variety of tasks and processes that contribute to the quality assurance and an effective sales process.
Imixs-Office-Workflow offers the possibility to adapt standard processes to an individual organisation structure. The solution provides a flexible concept to manage the flow of documents between employees and locations also in large organisations. For the process transparency a process documentation plays a special role for workflow management solutions. Only in case all the working stages are logged by the system, processes can be optimized later by reporting and evaluation of business data. And finally the process monitoring can help to improve the business value for car dealers. Imixs-Office-Workflow provides the functionality for automatic resubmission for single vehicles to be checked and optimized for the sales process.
