Our client, PT. Timah is a big state-owned enterprise in the industry of tin mining operations & marketing business. They asked WGS to find the best solution to manage their payment approval process. This company has been using paper forms for the internal payment approval process where sometimes the paper was missing or stuck on certain staff. So, to allow the business to grow and operate well, the company needs to have supporting technology such as the Business Process Management (BPM) System.

WGS has implemented a BPM system to enable staff to create their own dynamic form and process, to check and track each approval form process in a better way. The BPM system can accommodate structure changes and business processes with Agile and Robust methodology. The company can also use a mobile application to access the request and approval system.
