There is a dizzying array of technologies, methodologies and confusing acronyms. We call it alphabet soup. This soup creates barriers to fixing business processes or taking advantage of opportunities.

Business Process Analysis
Is your team managing business processes with sticky notes, email and spreadsheets? Every task an employee does each day is a process. Breaking down and documenting each step in a business process enables us to determine:
- Labor cost
- Resource cost
- Opportunity cost
This analysis will enable you to take advantage of opportunities for reducing cost and risk. Many times, the analysis reveals instances for recovering lost revenue.
A lot of time and money is spent training employees on Quality, Health, Safety and Environmental policies. Companies often struggle with embedding QHSE policies in daily operational and business processes. This results in a cycle of:
- Observe noncompliance
- Train again
Add the ever-changing regulatory landscape and you have a large burden impacting the entire company.
You can reduce this burden by:
- embedding QHSE into daily tasks
- selecting appropriate QHSE standards to tailor your management system
- integrating sensors and other IoT data into your QHSE system
Business process analysis enables us to merge QHSE policy with daily tasks so noncompliance risk is reduced.
Once you've identified process(es) and listed your requirements, its time to apply technology. Ask yourself if the system you select should:
- be flexible to meet today's requirements and next year's challenges
- not create another set of spreadsheets and sticky notes to support the process
- interface with your existing applications
- operate offline
We have decades of experience in applying technology to business processes. Give us a call if you need a little help.
