At the SPANISH RAILWAY FOUNDATION, we consider that the implementation project for the AuraPortal management software is not yet complete, because our next objectives not only include the implementation in our administrative processes but also in other areas such as sales and human resources.
The initial idea arose from the need for the SPANISH RAILWAY FOUNDATION to establish a system that would help to automate internal procedures, mostly administrative, that require the intervention of several different positions and departments, thus eliminating manual paper-driven processes.
At present, Business Process Management is the best solution to provide greater effectiveness in any organization therefore, the SPANISH RAILWAY FOUNDATION chose to undertake a BPM project. After defining all the phases, staff, departments and information to be handled in each process, the need to transfer these theoretical approaches to a BPM Suite (BPMS) became apparent, in order to automate the processes and to ensure that the proposed objectives were achieved.
Document management integrated with the processes.
We have been able to monitor and control all expenditures to avoid deviations from the agreed budgets.
Management of services and resolution of incidents from the IT department.
The authorization process for purchases or expenditures.
“In general, the main benefits have been the improvements in our procedures, including greater quality, control and confidence in our daily tasks.”
“As we got to know AuraPortal and saw its possibilities, the project become increasingly ambitious and is now being implemented in different areas, including the company’s internal and external processes.”
