Business Problem

LLS realized the need for BPM to help streamline and automate its entire application process to better serve its constituents and reduce operating costs, something it was not able to do with its previous paper-based system. LLS also needed automation and efficiency in documenting, controlling, and reporting on business processes.

Appian BPM Solution

Appian helped LLS increase operational efficiencies by implementing and managing structured procedures to support its application processes. Using Appian, LLS can more effectively respond to applicant queries and address its constituents’ needs. As the only BPM solution to address both application and human interactions, Appian Enterprise enabled LLS to structure applicant processes, as well as the guidelines for handling and evaluating all applications, delivering a uniform system for delivering benefits.
