Enterprise Business Process Management Systems vs Low Code Application Builders

Enterprise Business Process Management Systems (BPMS) and Low Code Application Builders (LCAB) are both powerful tools used to streamline operations and increase efficiency within organisations. However, they serve different purposes and come with some key differentiators:


  • BPMS is primarily used to improve business processes. It allows organisations to design, model, execute, monitor, and optimise important processes. The goal is to transform these processes to be more efficient, effective, and adaptable to changing business environments.

  • LCAB platforms, on the other hand, are software development frameworks that allow developers to create applications with minimal hand-coding, using a visual interface to design and build applications. The goal is to speed up the software development process for numerous small RPA solutions.


  • BPMS provides a holistic approach to managing and optimising business processes, and this include features and capabilities for process automation, execution, monitoring, and optimisation.

  • LCAB platforms focus on the rapid development of applications. They provide pre-built templates, drag-and-drop interfaces, and other features that make it easy to build applications quickly.

User Base

  • BPMS is typically applied by enterprises where management is looking to improve operational efficiency and business processes.

  • LCAB platforms are used by developers and non-technical users who want to create functional applications without needing to write extensive code.

When and why would you use a BPMS platform such as FlowCentric Processware rather than a LCAB?


Large organisations have numerous and complex business processes that need to be managed and optimised. FlowCentric Processware is designed to handle and manage this complexity with relative ease and provide a structured approach to managing processes in a single integrated BPMS platform.


FlowCentric Processware can scale to handle the large number of processes and workflows that exist within a large organisation. They also support integration with other enterprise systems and legacy applications.


FlowCentric Processware can help to ensure that processes are compliant by providing features like audit trails and reporting. FlowCentric Processware can have KPIs built in to make the users execute all relevant processes via Processware instead of outside the system or across disparate RPA flows and workflow apps.

Continuous Improvement

FlowCentric Processware supports the continuous improvement of processes by providing tools for monitoring and optimising processes in a single integrated platform. This is crucial in large organisations where small improvements can lead to significant benefits.


When it comes to improving existing IT, saving licensing cost and creating a single integration layer, FlowCentric Processware is the system of choice. While a LCAB is great in rolling out little workflows fast, it is in their nature to make the IT landscape more disparate. Each app is its own little silo amplifying disintegration. A single integration layer built with FlowCentric Processware leads to a unified approach thereby streamlining collaboration across teams, departments, and divisions.


In summary, while a LCAB is great for quickly building applications with minimal coding, FlowCentric Processware provides the opportunity for either a low-code or a full coding environment, specifically pertaining to more robust enterprise applications and processes. Since processes are orchestrated and managed within a governance, compliance, risk and delegation of authority framework, FlowCentric Processware provides a holistic and future-proof solution for managing and optimising an organisation's unique business processes within a single integrated platform.
