Process Director

It simply works great for our applications and requirements!
Greg Scherer | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP BPM

It is well suited when we need to integrate business processes with SAP ERP and SAP CRM - the solution can be integrated with business rules/procedures defined in SAP ERP/CRM and NetWeaver can be used to monitor the rules and flag off exceptions. When there are multiple workflows running, it tends to slow down running of these processes. Also, it entirely depends on SAP portal for it to run efficiently.

Pros

Process Director

  • BP Logix Process Director has an extremely easy to use graphical workflow designer.
  • Good support for electronic signatures and physical signatures using hardware signature pads.
  • Knowledge views and dashboards for easy access to data.

SAP BPM

  • Virtual paper trail. Iterations of process and current documentation are all stored as "artifacts", leaving a great trail.
  • Configuration of users. BPM somewhat magically determines which users will be impacted and automates rules.
  • A pro (that is also a con) is the design interface. If you know what you are doing, it is incredibly powerful and malleable.

Cons

Process Director

  • Having a record of sent emails in a process would be helpful.
  • A "scrubber" for PDF names would be helpful. Acrobat does not like to open items with particular characters in a file name.
Laura Floeckher | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP BPM

  • Live readings would be nice.
  • Easier to maneuver
  • Work with all systems with the press of one keystroke

As a big fan of SAP in general, the BPM solution fits right in with all the other things SAP does well, and does it with incredible efficiency

We have our own tech support for systems, I would say they probably could use more training on it, I don't really think it's anything regarding the SAP system, but more the knowledge they have on the system itself. It seems to take longer for them to fix any issues we may come across.

Alternatives Considered

Process Director

We evaluated 13 vendors when looking for a solution for our finance department. We invited 4 vendors to demo and picked BP Logix in late 2011. Integration was very quick and since we went live January 2012 we deployed three additional processes incorporating our finance, facilities, legal, IT and our operations departments.

SAP BPM

I found the initial setup of NetWeaver is much simpler than other products especially in an SAP environment where we have SAP ERP/HRM/CRM as it can be well integrated with other SAP products. The only drawback is the need/dependency on SAP Portal. It is better suited in an environment where SAP ERP is running.

Return on Investment

Process Director

  • Process Director has had such a positive impact on our entire organization. Nearly every division and department throughout the whole organization either has working forms and workflows or has requested to have forms and workflows developed.
  • The only negative or adverse condition is that we don't have enough development time for all the workflows requested to be developed.
Greg Scherer | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP BPM

  • Helped us harness integrated benefit from having SAP ERP/CRM by leveraging NetWeaver to define business processes/rules and monitor exceptions
  • Did not have any negative experience except for the fact that at times when multiple rules run, it can be somewhat slow
