BPM – Business Process Management
Challenge

Business processes are the key to the way that almost every company operates. That’s because they are the blueprints that are followed to achieve all kinds of business functions, and they enable the different parts of the organization to work together and to interact with suppliers and customers.

That being the case, it’s not hard to see that a company can only be as flexible, efficient and agile as its business processes interacting with each other.

Many companies develop business processes in isolation from other processes they interact with, or worse, they don’t “develop” business processes at all. As a result, many companies are hampered by their processes, and will continue to be so until those processes are optimized.

Solution

Business process management is the practice of aligning goals and processes as businesses evolve. SAVIS BPM software helps organizations define the steps required to carry out a business task, mapping these definitions to existing processes and then streamlining or improving these processes so that the steps are taken more efficiently.

The steps that can be recognized in BPM are:

  • Analyze
  • Re-design and model
  • Implement
  • Monitor
  • Manage
  • Automate
Benefits
  • Organizing around outcomes not tasks to ensure the proper focus is maintained
  • Correcting and improving processes before (potentially) automating them
  • Establishing processes and assigning ownership lest the work and improvements simply drift away – and they will, as human nature takes over and the momentum peters out
  • Standardizing processes across the enterprise so they can be more readily understood and managed, errors reduced, and risks mitigated
  • Enabling continuous change so the improvements can be extended and propagated over time
  • Improving existing processes, rather than building radically new or “perfect” ones, because that can take so long as to erode or negate any gains achieved
