Omaha, NE (PRWEB) April 28, 2005
Insession Technologies, a business unit of Transaction System Architects Inc. (Nasdaq: TSAI), today announced availability of WorkPoint AdvantageÂ®. Built on the strength of InsessionÂs WorkPointÂ® Business Process Management (BPM) suite, WorkPoint Advantage incorporates a powerful Business Rules Engine (BRE) offering increased interactivity, efficiency and cost savings throughout the enterprise by allowing organizations to gain control and manage valuable business rules.
The rules engine provides an easy to use, spreadsheet-like interface. The interface does not require programming knowledge to use and maintain the business logic. Its patented interactive rules management technology offers high performance without a need for additional databases at runtime or other heavy platforms. The rules component is unique in that it can be deployed as a front-end interface to drive transactions with users, as a back-end decision automation component to other enterprise applications or anywhere in between.
Representing over a decade of development and customer deployment, WorkPoint automates any manual or electronic business process, linking people and systems across the enterprise. WorkPoint AdvantageÂs rules engine enables organizations to extend the many benefits of BPM.
ÂWith the pairing of Business Process Management and Business Rules Engine technology, WorkPoint Advantage gives users the best of both worlds,Â said Tony Parkinson, president and CEO of Insession Technologies. ÂThis offering is part of our ongoing commitment to add value to our comprehensive BPM suite. Combining a rules engine with BPM provides an additional layer of flexibility and agility by centralizing the management of decision criteria, applying rules consistently across an organization.Â
The Golf Course Superintendents Association of America, representing 21,000 golf course management professionals worldwide, chose WorkPoint Advantage to provide a complete BPM solution for their organization. ÂWe needed a solution that could handle the complexities of a membership organization and the business rules we have developed over 75 years in the industry. WorkPoint Advantage facilitates the management and improvement of our existing processes giving us the ability to better provide services to our members,Â said Bryce Gartner, senior director of Strategic Communications.
By encapsulating, packaging and deploying the business rules and decision logic that make a company unique, WorkPoint Advantage helps organizations build best practices for key business decisions. The combination of BPM and BRE technology simplifies process definitions, requires less coding and enhances a companyÂs ability to respond immediately to changing business requirements.
WorkPoint AdvantageÂs powerful rules engine helps bridge the gap between business and IT as it requires no scripting even when defining complex rules. This allows business users to easily define and change rules without tasking IT resources.
ÂWorkPoint Advantage allows business users to define and change rules, putting the power into the hands of people who need it, when they require itÂ said Michael Sander, director of WorkPoint operations, Insession Technologies. ÂWhen the business user can perform initial process design and ongoing maintenance, they are better equipped to improve their core processes.Â
