Asadministrative and other key business processes become more complex and growing concerns for safety affect the energy industry, more firms are looking to automation to help optimize their operations. According to Biodiesel Magazine, Akash Energy - a leading biodiesel, ethanol and traditional petroleum-based fuel provider - recently utilized a cloud-based BPM solution to automate numerous processes and improve its operations in order to drive increased value to its customers.

Additionally, the firm will be integrating a mobile BPM solution to focus its fuel distribution and quality control in the field. Justin Heller, founder and president of the firm, feels that optimizing the customer experience along with protecting and preserving the economy, resources and environment is the responsibility of any modern energy provider.

"I am part of the Millennial Generation, which is a unique generation in the sense that we bridge the gap," Heller told the news source. "We grew up before technology had infiltrated every aspect of our lives, but came of age as it did, leading to one of the most significant paradigm shifts since the industrial revolution. The ability to connect with anyone, anywhere, at any time, coupled with universal access to the sum total of human knowledge, is creating a population that is becoming exponentially more conscious of the consequences of their actions."

Cloud optimization

Cloud BPM software provides companies with advantages in the accessibility and mobility of their process management needs. This allows any firm to focus on growth and improvement without being limited by physical location or other factors. With high-quality cloud-based Appian BPM software any business can embrace the same ideals as Heller and focus on sustainable opportunities to improve the economy and customer relationships.

Mobility is key

Going hand in hand with the cloud are versatile mobile BPM solutions. Mobility adds to the "anywhere access" benefits that the cloud provides by integrating BPM with any device that professionals may need to use, whether they are in the office or out in the field. This is particularly useful for firms in the fuel and energy industry for keeping track of deliveries, sales and other key processes.

Sustainable energy needs a sustainable resource to help companies adjust to rapid changes in the market, and high-end BPM solutions can provide the support necessary to ensure success and boost overall operational efficiency.
