BPMS, A Compliance Officers Best Friend

Blog: LitheIT

I recently updated the Lithe IT website and added a new link to highlight one of my favourite features that leading BPMS support, improving compliance.

I often think that being a Compliance officer is very similar to providing an IT service provider, in that senior people only want to talk to you when something goes wrong. Within IT and the wider business a considerable amount of effort is spent measuring and proving compliance with stated business processes, regulatory and legislative rules, and client instructions.
I’ve experienced this in both the Financial Services and Public sectors within the UK and have first-hand experience of how time consuming it is. It is also often regarded as a burden as it often means extra work in gathering and completing templates.
Imagine having improved controls, reducing the data gathering and proof effort, with immediate highlighting of potential problems. With a leading BPMS this can be quickly achieved.
A BPMS will rapidly become a Compliance Officers best friend as it will:

For these reasons, I believe a BPMS is the ideal technology to implement a control framework, and therefore becomes a Compliance Officer’s best friend.
