Bizcaps unveils year-long enhancements

Keywords: Food and Beverage, Recipes, Catalogues

  Australian software developers Bizcaps Software have unveiled a new release of their entire business platform along with a timetable for additional enhancements to be added throughout 2012 to include a revolutionary business process design tool and simple integration tools.  

“It’s the most significant release of products in the company’s history,” says Development Director Bill Blinco. Bizcaps’ entire range of Master Data Management (MDM) and Business Process Management (BPM) software has been updated, with the company now also offering scalable subscription pricing.  

Bizcaps contributes to the smooth operation of some of Australia’s largest health, grocery, liquor, office and hardware suppliers by helping create, maintain and synchronise their product data catalogues with their trading partners through the national GS1net and NPC datapools. It also provides complementary software for their trading partners such as large food and beverage retailers and State Health Departments.  

The new release will offer an enhanced user interface and far more seamless interactivity with back-end systems such as SAP and Oracle, allowing customers to install Bizcaps as a friendly front-end to existing systems.  

Food industry MDM customers will have access to FoodTech, allowing food technicians to securely create, manage, test, evaluate and store multiple versions of recipes, plug them into existing catalogues and workflows and recalculate critical labelling and compliance data.  

Healthcare MDM clients will gain access to a tender submission workflow process template, allowing them to more easily respond to State Health Department tenders, while clients in the grocery sector will be able to incorporate workflows into their product lifecycle processes. 

“Our new business process design tool, FlowScribe, is revolutionary, allowing users to construct workflows that move dynamically to create readable diagrams,” Mr Blinco says.    

“Until now only the largest companies could afford to implement detailed workflow processing, but Flowscribe will make easy workflow development and adjustment affordable for smaller organisations.” FlowScribe will be released in the second quarter of 2012.  

Other planned enhancements include the Liberator product, which allows easy integration of data across platforms, slated for the third quarter of 2012.  

“Our focus is on delivering products that enable rapid deployment, minimal coding, maximum configuration and the involvement of non-technical people wherever possible,” Mr Blinco says.
