Business Process Analysis
A proper business process analysis is a critical component to achieving the desired end result for a software implementation or upgrade because it seeks to understand the “why” behind everything you do … Why are you in business? … Why do your customers buy from you?
Should you choose to do business with a specialist from BASM, they will work with you and your staff to determine areas that can be automated, or that require better analysis tools to allow you to capitalize on your company’s unique strengths. This allows us to properly calibrate our broad scope business software systems to align with your company’s specific needs.
Some of the areas we cover during this phase include:
- Identifying the most important factors in your business’ success.
- Discovering your business drivers.
- Detailing the aspects of your business that add value for your customers.
- Learning how your business operates from the inside out.
- And seeking ways in which enhancements can be made regarding: improving efficiencies, doing more with less, increasing communication, and decreasing mistakes.
The focus of a Process Review is to identify the ‘how’ in your business process.
- How does your business function day to day?
- How to people perform their individual tasks, and how do those tasks relate to others?
- How does information flow through your company?
Understanding how you operate is a vital component in our ability to not only design a business management system that fits your business process; but is also beneficial in improving inefficient processes, and increasing automation.
Needs Assessment and Risk Analysis
Knowing what you need is the first step to achieving the goals of a business software implementation. Our needs assessment focuses on identifying the pain points and opportunities for improvement within your organization. Once we are aware of the factors which may be holding your business back or causing processes to be less than efficient, we can configure your new software application and business process to overcome them.
With the needs assessment complete, and after all pertinent information has been gathered, we will perform a thorough risk analysis. Doing this prior to beginning an implementation enables us to reduce risks and develop a plan for mitigation ahead of time.
Your business objectives are crucial to a positive end-result. They establish where your business is going, what its goals are, and how you plan to measure success. Having your objectives clearly defined, enables BASM to design the very best business system to help you meet and exceed them.
After thoroughly researching the intricacies of your business, BASM will create a detailed system design which encompasses your needs, objectives, requirements, personnel competency and risks. The result of which will be a complete end-to-end business management software solution, built upon the best tools and technology; and configured to meet your unique requirements, automate your business processes, and give you access to real time and accurate data across all business sectors.
