Ultimus enables companies to rapidly deploy our cost-effective, flexible BPM solution. Our out-of-the-box solution offers advanced built-in capabilities to handle the unique BPM requirements.

Historically, business applications were built, deployed and managed separately by department and job function. EAI succeeded in transferring data from one application to another, but it failed to deliver a higher level of customer value. When BPM came onto the scene, it was able to fill holes where EAI had failed.
Ultimus customers are using BPM in conjunction with their existing document management or ECM capabilities to directly link information with specific processes, add time-bound metrics for the completion of tasks, and to route the information to specific people in the organization based on well defined rules and event conditions.
ERP systems provide great benefits for specialized, high value transactions they were designed to control. However, companies also have many cross-functional processes that exist “outside” the application. This is where Ultimus steps in.
While popular for collaboration, intranet, and document management, SharePoint has limitations in enterprise business process use cases that cause profound problems in common, real-world situations. Ultimus provides a variety of ways to overcome these limitations and leverage SharePoint’s strengths.
