business process mapping

A major benefit of enterprise resource planning is the ability to have full oversight of your business on a central interface. Part of the process of ERP is the technique of process mapping.

Connected IT are experts in this technique, which starts with an in-depth analysis of the organisation, working closely with key role players and stakeholders.  We’ll analyse the current situation against goals and objectives for the organisation and identify problems, opportunities, areas of weakness and areas of potential growth.

Then we’ll develop comprehensive flowcharts, each chart being a visual representation of the processes in key business units. These flowcharts concentrate on the work itself, rather that the organisational hierarchy and structure.

We’ll start with a macro view of the organisation and work inwardly to a micro level of detail, where opportunities for improvement and greater efficiency can be identified.  

Process mapping helps to simplify analysis and decision making, by providing management with a snapshot of each individual business process. Having a visual depiction of the flow of work and the steps involved, enables a better understanding of the business, helps to speed up project design and results in easier and more efficient decision making.

Once in-depth analysis and process mapping has been completed, the process of determining the most appropriate ERP system begins. Connected IT with its years of experience, will help to identify and integrate the ERP system that is most appropriate for the needs and complexities of your organisation.

Business process reengineering does have its failures, but more often than not, these are the result of poor planning and preparation, together with a lack of commitment. Connected IT has years of experience in BPR and have helped many small to medium sized business navigate the intricacies involved.
