Business Process Management (BPM) Hosted Service Goes Live at Flux

BILLINGS, MT -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 28, 2005 -- Today, Flux Corporation announced that its Business Process Management (BPM) software is now available as a Hosted Service, online and accessible over the Internet. This BPM Hosted Service performs document routing and approval between people within an organization as well as external customers and business partners. Documents, forms, files, and other data can be routed for approval in an automated workflow on a scheduled or event-driven basis. Automated software tasks can be integrated within each business process. Pricing starts at $65 per user per month. Infrequent users are free, and volume discounts are available.

Typical business processes that are automated on the Flux BPM Hosted Service include:

1) Automating the sales process
2) Purchase requisitions
3) Employee performance reviews
4) Requesting time off from work
By automating business processes, fewer human-based tasks are forgotten, software-based tasks are not missed, and an organization's business processes, policies, and practices become more transparent throughout the organization and to external customers and business partners.

Although Flux Business Process Management can be run in-house, on a customer's server, the advantage of a Hosted Service is that there is no software to install and no IT staff to monitor the software system. A Hosted Service, like an Application Service Provider (ASP) such as, makes it possible for any department in an organization to perform Business Process Management without having to engage the organization's IT staff.

Flux Corporation, headquartered in Montana, traditionally provides its Flux Business Process Management software to corporations creating Java and J2EE software applications. Flux already has more than 300 customers in 27 countries in this traditional customer segment. With its BPM Hosted Service, Flux is poised to provide its BPM expertise to any company seeking to automate and streamline its business processes.
