The project has begun with the implementation of the Corporative Document Handling using BPMS, a new approach to understanding the document handling which is much more efficient and of which AuraPortal is a pioneer. The next step is the implementation of Purchase and Invoice Processes.

Ministerio de Defensa
At present in process of restructuration, the Central Laboratory Chemical of Arms -LQCA- (Ministry of Defense) forms part of the Technological Institute The Maranosa -ITM-, a reference center for I+D+i for Defense matters. El LQCA is one of the Technological Centers that make up the present ITM, where experimental projects and advice and support are carried out, as well as I+D+i projects of the Ministry of Defense.
One of the difficulties that come with I+D+i Projects is their control due to the continuous evolution of the technology and the chaotic components carried on by the changing needs in the world of Security and Defense today. This situation called for a sound improvement in the organization of projects and in consequence AuraPortal was installed.
At present, E&Q Engineering (AuraPortal BPMS partner) together with the responsible of the Center is working on the design and implementation of a process map in the area of the Investigation Projects in progress. The competitive advantage of AuraPortal in comparison with other tools that need advanced programming (more resources and more time), reside in the immediacy and simplicity for designing, execution and monitoring processes with the BPM.
