What is Business Process Management?

The term “BPM” or “Business Process Management” is thrown around a lot nowadays, and rightfully so, but what does it mean? What can BPM do for YOUR business?

Business Process Management, or BPM, is a systematic approach to making an organization’s workflow more effective, more efficient and more capable of adapting to an ever-changing environment. A business process is an activity or set of activities that will accomplish a specific organizational goal.

To break it down further:

Business: a person, partnership, or corporation engaged in commerce,manufacturing, or a service; profit-seeking enterprise or concern.

Process: a continuous action, operation, or series of changes taking place in a definite manner:

Management: the person or persons controlling and directing the affairs of a business, institution

Therefore the main purpose, and point of BPM is to simplify ones business. By enabling a software that helps with the automation of ones business you are choosing to curate and create simplistic ways of navigating your business.

With a BPM solution you can take HR documents, vacation request forms, time sheets, design docs, ect. Store them all in one solution, send them out, fill them out, approve or deny straight from one piece of software. The list is truly endless and made to fit your organizations needs. Gone are the days of filing away endless paper work, wondering where you saved a certain document, or sending out project requests, then having to print said request, then copying it back on a computer for storage.

With a BPM solution you can have the ease of mind in knowing, not only that your documents are safe, but all in one place and easily accessible. BPM is aimed at improving workflow and communication within a company.

Managing tasks and projects has never been easier within a BPM solution. Next week we will dive into how Team on the Run aims to be your all in one BPM solution.

Digital Transformation Made Concrete Part 2: How it can Protect your Business

*Digital Transformation Made Concrete: Part One was made to examine the ‘what’ portion of Digital Transformation, part two will cover the ‘why.’

When we look at the Digital Transformation and how it is shaping companies, one of the most important things to take in is the protection aspect. Company data, files, and even standard emails are at risk on any given day.

In a study done in 2013 by TechTalk, 95.6% of commuters put their company data at risk. This can be done by sending emails over “free” WiFi, or even sending data over 4G. You don’t realize in doing so that you are in fact putting your companies data at risk.

Timothy Francis, enterprise lead for Cyber Insurance digs further into the premise stating, “62% of cyber breach victims are small to mid-size businesses, which are at the greatest risk for an attack. Their level of preparation is low, and the costs of customer notification alone can be enough to do a small company irreparable financial harm.” In the same article which written by Rosalie L. Donlon, goes on to explain that the cost of a data breach in just legal fees alone can be crippling for a business.

So what we are looking at now is employees who are unintentionally putting their business at risk just by doing their job. Having a chat over texts or email while at the local coffee shop on their free WiFi is a danger to your company. This is why the digital transformation is important for businesses small to large. This is also where Team on the Run comes in, to help protect your company’s data with our state-of-the-art encryption capabilities.

Our company branded messenger can be used both on mobile and on web, that way you always know that your employees conversations and data is safe at all times. Team on the Run allows you to have your entire company contacts stored in our encrypted platform allowing you to safely send information between co-workers wherever you are.

When it comes to the digital transformation of a business, making sure they are safe and secure for the future is at the forefront. Team on the Run enables you to make sure employees can be accessible to each other, on a safe network, and at all times. No one wants to be the company that has it’s information stolen because employee B needed to send an email to employee A on Dunkin Donuts WiFi, all while using a Gmail account.

At Team on the Run, we want you to be able to enjoy that cup of coffee without having to worry if your messages are safe.

In our next post we will look at what digital transformation means for Team on the Run.

**A note about security at Team on the Run:

Secure communication is at core of our platform. We work to ensure that we have state of the art encryption so your information is safe and sound. Plus we offer a remote data wipe out option so if a device is stolen or misplaced the team Administrator can wipe it clean to secure confidential information leaks.

Digital Transformation Made Concrete: Part One

Digital transformation, business mobility, mobile enterprise, and some other related buzzwords.

Let’s start by defining the term. I found this definition by Agile Elephant that I think explains the term very clearly:

“Digital transformation is the process of shifting your organization from a legacy approach to new ways of working and thinking using digital, social, mobile and emerging technologies.  It involves a change in leadership, different thinking, the encouragement of innovation and new business models, incorporating digitization of assets and an increased use of technology to improve the experience of your organizations employees, customers, suppliers, partners and stakeholders.”

A few means of digital transformation include the use of analytics, mobility, social media and smart embedded devices to improve on traditional techniques and technologies to aide in smoother, faster and more intuitive internal processes and external customer relations.

The digital transformation is already a reality and the “transformation” side should not be taken lightly, as Phillip Tracy points out in What is Digital Transformation:

“Leading companies of this concept can be found in nearly all industries, with disrupters like Uber providing extreme examples of what digital transformation can achieve. In fact, in 2014 MIT interviewed 157 executives in 50 large companies — typically $1 billion or more in annual sales — and spanning 15 countries. Approximately half of the interviewees were business leaders such as CEOs, line of business managers, marketing heads or COOs, while the other half were IT and technology leaders. The companies interviewed were moving forward with digital transformation at varying speeds and experiencing varying levels of success. MIT found the best companies – those they refer to as “Digirati” – combine digital activity with strong leadership to turn technology into transformation, or what MIT considers reaching “digital maturity.”

As businesses look to integrate these process management tools into their arsenal to improve their companies function, Team on the Run is here to help. Team on the Run provides businesses with a company branded messenger platform that includes features like Push to Talk, NFC tag check in, secure VoIP calls and Geolocation.

The main point of the digital transformation is to reshape the modern enterprise and automatize the processes you go through on a daily basis. Eliminate the hassle passing documents by hand, or logging driver miles for fleet management by digitizing your processes and letting the technology improve your day to day.

One example for Team on the Run and Fleet Management customers is our ability to get rid of expensive outdated equipment by making their processes quicker and more efficient. When you have less steps in a process you can save time, so when you look at something like Geolocation and PTT (Push to Talk) they save time by utilizing both on one device and in one app as opposed to using Walkie-Talkie equipment and a GPS.

In our next post we will look at how the digital transformation can protect your business.

The Value of Push-to-Talk

Do you ever find yourself sitting in a meeting listening to the multiple conversations going on at one time and wonder, how are we actually getting things done?

There have been times when sitting in a meeting was comparable to a Thanksgiving meal with my family and all the cousins, conversations flowing at a rapid pace.

A meeting shouldn’t be going on like this, meetings are set up to complete tasks, accomplish goals and to put plans together. Using the Push-to-Talk feature by Team on the Run. we have found a way to cut down on chatter, improve workflow, and improve the overall experience of a meeting.

What makes Push-to-Talk a successful solution for a meeting? Its ability to give one person the floor to speak. You speak when its your turn, everyone else listens, once you finish someone else can take over and have the floor. This gives each employee a voice no matter if you are the manager, intern, or executive.

Having these meetings with a global company or a company with remote employees is a great way to make sure everyone is attentive and gets a chance to voice their opinion.

When we have a weekly meeting it’s a time for each employee to speak up on their tasks that they are currently working on and with Push-to-Talk each member has a chance to speak up and take turns. When it’s your turn to speak, the floor is yours and you can explain everything.

Meetings through something like Skype or Google Hangouts can actually hinder productivity when everyone can speak at one time. Not to mention the guy on the call that doesn’t realize his mic is always on.

Team on the Run also offers the ability to set up channels: A channel is a group full of members who, when signed in, can push to talk with everyone, from anywhere, just like a walkie-talkie Frequency band, but far stronger. This allows you to control who can enter the meeting, that way you can make sure that the right people are always in your meetings.

Team on the Run allows you to take control of a meeting and make sure everyone is not only participating but plans stay intact and goals on target.

Say goodbye to overly complicated meetings and hello to meetings simplified.

NFC: On the Run

NFC communication is another one of the many features brought to you by Team on the Run. For those unfamiliar with NFC communication, NFC stands for Near Field Communication:

NFC: is a set of communication protocols that enable two electronic devices, one of which is usually a portable device such as a smartphone, to establish communication by bringing them within about 4 cm (2 in) of each other


NFC tag check ins with Team on the Run allow you to do instant updates while on the go. Real-time inventory updates will allow you to update management on inventory by just hovering your phone over a well placed NFC tag.

NFC also allows for instant updates on employee tasks and performance. Complete a task? Use an NFC tag to mark what time you finished your task or project at so your boss knows exactly when you completed said task.

Lastly, NFC also provides security, access control and location identification among other process automation in the business environment. Private security companies can use NFC tags to see when employees are checking doors and checking rooms to be more precise and time efficient each time they check a room. When tagged with NFC they can also back up when exactly they checked rooms and doors in case of emergency as well.
