The announced that the implementation of the AuraPortal BPM Process Model in the Ministry of Interior of Colombia has been awarded the prestigious WfMC award. Workflow Management Coalition (WfMC) and BPM.com jointly sponsor the annual Global Awards for Excellence in BPM and Workflow. The Awards program is managed by Future Strategies Inc.
The award-winning project is the Ministry of the Interior’s Infrastructure Project Information System. The problem was important and complex. From 2010 to 2016, 1,138 infrastructure projects were approved with a total contribution of 1,191,178,046,283 COP (approximately 410 million USD) from the National Security and Coexistence Fund, FONSECON.
The Viability Process is made up of 8 sub-processes and involves interaction from 13 professionals and 3 support staff. It is designed for 1103 mayors from the municipalities, 32 departments and other entities such as the National Police, the Colombian Maritime Authority Dimar, the Department of Justice, etc.
The process was very complex due to the manual coordination of activities. As it required documents to be submitted in person, public officials from across the country had to travel to Bogota for each procedure. Due to the geographical characteristics of Colombia, travel arrangements were often complicated, involving sailing down the rivers to the cities where they could then take a plane to Bogota.
The AuraPortal iBPMS platform optimizes services to promote public safety and citizen coexistence, benefiting over 48 million citizens throughout Colombia. The highly available and mobile cloud solution has achieved optimal administrative efficiency and facilitated the work of all public officials involved in the infrastructure projects.
The project has succeeded in coordinating activities between all people involved in the process, thereby optimizing the use of all resources. The technology implementation has enabled the integration of people, processes and technology. The Viability Process is now extremely agile and flexible, and there are fewer steps involved in the procedures resulting in a reduction in response times, improved quality and it constitutes an important advance in Digital Transformation.
