With the new Age of the Customer, widespread collaborative processes and the focus on customer-centric and dynamic, context-specific communication, traditional BPM and case management have been pushed to their limits with rising enterprise expectations for advanced flexibility and adaptability.
Businesses looking to build high-value relationships with their clients and customers require speed, integration and efficiency in processing varying customer cases, contracts and claims, as well as consistency and relevance of communications in diverse customer scenarios and changing business environments.
Adaptive Case Management - A New Way of Working
In order to deliver on their future vision, customer-focused organizations are increasingly turning to business technology that is using adaptive case management and dynamic business processes to create the right balance between client orientation, transformational growth and productivity improvements.
New Adaptive Case Management solutions are designed to dynamically adapt each interaction with its surrounding situation and to help people collaborate more effectively in supporting business activities that are unpredictable in their execution, loosely structured, and subject to frequent change.
In short, today’s approach to optimizing the customer experience is all about ease of use, agility, speed, innovation and managing the unexpected.
Papyrus Adaptive Case Management – Unified Solution for Digital & Traditional Business
Papyrus Adaptive Case Management (ACM) provides the integrated OOTB platform for high-value, unique and skill- or knowledge-intensive customer service processes for wide-ranging business requirements across industries and domains. Papyrus ACM solutions can be applied across channels as a part of a company’s digital strategy, as well as in traditional business activity, and leveraged for multi-departmental, process-oriented applications, customer service and critical collaborative project work, as well as ACM-powered customer-facing solutions in traditional branch office operations.
Out-of-the-Box Framework for Fast Value Delivery
The Papyrus Adaptive Case Management (ACM) Framework is an integral part of the Papyrus model-execution platform and provides the architectural guidance, executable configurable components, and powerful visual means to help enterprise teams jump-start the creation of critical business processes and quickly deliver significant business benefits - all with the same investment and within one setup.
Designed into an Out-of-the-Box (OOTB) Framework to reduce the time and complexity of creating adaptive process solutions, Papyrus ACM is ideal to gain strategic advantage by addressing customer needs via unique business services that can be rapidly developed - delivering value significantly faster and at a fraction of cost through configuration and adaptation without traditional coding.
The Papyrus ACM Framework can flexibly interoperate with other ready-to-use Papyrus solution Frameworks to mix-and-match their functionalities for any need. Papyrus business solutions can then be easily modified and extended at any time via configuration and customization to grow and evolve with the business and promote operational transformation and innovation.
Simplified Integration, Interoperability & Connectivity
Papyrus ACM solutions interface with any business system, as well as back-office users, by leveraging Service-oriented Architecture (SOA) to flexibly integrate via loose coupling and configuration without APIs or hard-coded programming.
Any system, application or database that supports at least one of the most common interfaces and protocols provided by a range of Papyrus SOA Adapters and Type Managers can be simply and easily integrated to ensure complete interoperability and connectivity:
- Online channels/portals - Web Services, SOAP, HTTPs, Social, Mobile-REST
- Email/messaging – SMTP, POP3, SMS
- Mainframe - JES 2/3 & CICS
- Databases - Oracle, SAP, DB2, MS-SQL, ODBC
- Java, .Net, MQ-Series, FILE, XML, FAX, VOIP, SNMP, LDAP, CMIS
Empowerment of Business Users
Adaptive Case Management puts people at the center of process and allows them to intervene and apply their judgment and expertise to adapt the process to the concrete business situation and create exactly what they need, when they need it - to achieve the best possible process outcomes.
The core difference from traditional BPM is WHERE and HOW can users formulate actions they want to take on data or content to reach business goals. In ACM business users can DESIGN while they EXECUTE.
Papyrus business users can design communication and create and modify customer interactions, as well as manage business rules and adaptive processes, and freely interact with process artifacts to dynamically change content, processes and rules at the process execution time – all to achieve the optimal customer experience and business outcomes.
Powered by Omni Channel Communication
Process means little without content - ACM solutions usually involve business communication to and from customers, partners, employees and other stakeholders. This is why Papyrus ACM Framework integrates seamlessly with the Papyrus Omni Channel communication platform’s inbound and outbound capabilities and places them at the disposal of case workers - directly into the process of handling a business case.
All currently existing inbound and outbound communication channels (print, e-mail, fax, Web, SMS, social media, mobile, etc.) are fully supported with closed-loop communication providing immediate ‘2 - way’ interaction and improved customer experience through continuous engagement with the customer.
Single View of the Customer
With direct access to the complete incoming and outgoing content, seamless back-end system integration, flexible document creation and content delivery capabilities, as well as a full support for handling various types of documents and information, Papyrus ACM users have at all times a full 360-degree view of the customer case and can act effectively and immediately as required.
Maximizing Future Value
By concentrating on five major elements – goals, data, content, rules, and intuitive UI - Papyrus ACM provides the enabling technology for enterprise-wide consolidation and seamless integration of enterprise content with business processes and customer communication.
This powerful foundation empowers the rapid development of the next generation of customer-oriented, process-driven business communication solutions for a fully connected customer experience that evolves with your business. Papyrus gives you the tools and the technology to take digital further at the pace of change.
