Business Process Management
Why is BPM So Critical?
The business landscape is in constant flux. To keep ahead of the game, organizations need to adapt quickly and efficiently to change. Our clients have realized the competitive edge that Business Process Management (BPM) can bring to their organization by delivering efficiency, effectiveness and agility.
A BPM implementation allows companies to:
- Visually map the business processes, giving participants a far better understanding of their role and the effect their actions have on the process as a whole.
- Perform simulations of potential scenarios to better understand the impact of change on the performance of a process, thus helping to identify bottlenecks.
- Automate processes to reduce waste by improving the hand-offs between departments and systems, removing duplication and eliminating the problems that occur from misrouted work.
- Enable continuous improvement, giving the business instrumentation that allows it to make informed decisions based on pre-defined Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). This means that a high level of agility can be brought to the process, heading off potential problems before they occur.
- Enhance agility. The driver for change can come from many different directions, to support new opportunities and changes in market conditions or to support regulations. Whatever the driver, BPM provides a platform from which process change can be made fast and efficiently in a controlled manner.
Axispont's Unique Approach to BPM
Axispoint has a skilled team with decades of experience of delivering successful BPM projects. We have multi-disciplined teams who are able to deliver every aspect of a BPM project, from process discovery and modelling through implementation and integration.
Drawing on our experiences, we have developed our own Lean Enterprise Agile Process (LEAP) methodology that quickly identifies the points of pain and waste in 90 day iterations. Rapid change unlocks the value to business stakeholders, providing a true return on investment.
When we engage with a client, we stand back and take a wider view of their environment and offer an opinion as to what improvements we see as possible. This often offers significant additional opportunities to the client.
- We deliver BPM using our LEAP methodology, but LEAP is not just reserved for BPM it can be used throughout an organization as a delivery method for all kinds of projects.
In some cases, there is a requirement for a public facing "Self Service Portal" as a route into a BPM process. While there are many ways of implementing such a solution, SharePoint is one of the tools we may recommend, if appropriate.
Axispoint has an extremely experienced BPM delivery team that over the years has put together best practices and code analysis tools.
