Business process management (BPM) is a vital aspect that can significantly affect a company’s overall productivity and efficiency. However, designing and optimizing processes can pose challenges that need addressing for successful implementation. Here at Flokzu, we understand these challenges and how to effectively overcome them.

Challenge 1: Identifying the Right Processes to Automate

One of the first hurdles companies face is identifying which processes should be automated. Not all processes are suitable for automation, and forcing automation on inappropriate processes can lead to inefficiency.


Perform a thorough process analysis. Identify repetitive, time-consuming tasks that require little to no human judgment. These are typically the best candidates for automation. Flokzu’s experts can assist in this initial analysis.

Challenge 2: Resistance to Change

Change can be daunting and met with resistance, especially when it involves disrupting familiar workflows. Employees may resist process automation due to fear of job loss or increased complexity in their tasks.


Effective communication is key. Highlight the benefits of automation, such as reduced workload and error elimination. Also, assure employees that automation is not a threat to their job security but instead a tool to boost productivity.

Challenge 3: Lack of Technical Expertise

Designing and implementing automated processes require a certain level of technical expertise, which might be lacking in some companies.


Partnering with an experienced BPM provider like Flokzu can close this gap. We offer a simple, user-friendly platform that doesn’t require extensive technical knowledge to navigate.

Challenge 4: Integration with Other Systems

Another challenge is ensuring the new automated processes seamlessly integrate with existing systems. Failure to do so can disrupt workflows and negate the efficiency gains of automation.


Flokzu allows for easy integration with various systems, ensuring smooth operation and enhanced efficiency. Our team will guide you through the integration process, ensuring minimal disruption to your workflows.

In conclusion, while the challenges in designing and optimizing processes can be daunting, they are not insurmountable. By partnering with an experienced BPM provider like Flokzu, these challenges can be effectively addressed.
