Business Process Mapping is a critical aspect of our workflow services. The Key Benefits of Business Process Mapping include:
Virtualization of Roles: Every once in a while, you end up in a situation where no one knows what’s going on with a certain process. Who’s in charge of what? Why is the new report not ready? Why did the manufacturing line just blow up?
Problem Solving: Spotting the problem is easy - just look at what blew up. Finding the source, however, tends to be more difficult. A process map visualizes the entire process and what led to the bottleneck, making it much easier to spot what, specifically, went wrong.
Risk Management & Compliance: As well as identifying areas that are causing inefficiencies, Business Process Mapping is a great tool for spotting potential risks caused by processes that leave the company open to legal or health and safety issues.
Establishing Best Practice: Once Business Process Mapping has been introduced to a company and a process has been mapped and optimized accordingly, the map can be used across the board as evidence of best practice and an exemplar for the rest of the business processes. This brings some uniformity to the way processes work within the organization.
Showing the Big Picture: In any business larger than just “a handful of staff”, it is inevitable that a silo mentality will develop over time, and that staff at all levels will lose sight of the big picture of what the business is attempting to achieve. Even when you drill down to just one process involved in the organization, Business Process Mapping can help everyone understand the big picture and get re-engaged with the company vision and the steps required to achieve it.
Why Choose the Scarlett Group for Workflow Consulting?
Outsourcing business process management (mapping) has traditionally been under-used by small and medium-sized enterprises. Improved business performance and increased competitive advantage arise from streamlined and efficient business processes, enabled by superior technology and in-house expertise.
Efficiency: By using an experienced business process outsourcing provider with specialized skills, best practices and state-of-the-art technology, you gain business process efficiencies and increase your company’s effectiveness.
Cost Savings: There are significant cost savings to be made; these are due not only to reduced overhead costs and capital expenditures, but to greater efficiencies achieved through superior technology.
Flexibility: Outsourcing business processes provides access to specialized skills and expertise, enabling you to fill resource gaps as needed and to complete one-off projects without hiring additional staff.
Focus: It is generally accepted that firms perform best when they focus on their core business activities. By outsourcing non-core activities, you can use more of your resources on value-added activities.
