SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Promapp Solutions – an industry leading provider of cloud-based process management software – is changing the way companies with multiple locations or multiple products manage processes with the launch of its new Process Variant Management (PVM) software.
“Managing process variations has always been a huge problem,” says Promapp CEO Ivan Seselj. “It is unnecessarily complex, costly, and inconsistent, particularly for companies which are multi-nationals, have numerous locations, or offer multiple core products or services.”
The Promapp PVM Module addresses all of these issues by recognizing standard processes and either managing or eliminating process variations.
Unlike competing products, the Promapp PVM Module enables the standardization of processes across the entire company, while simply incorporating process variations to meet the requirements of a specific corporate location, product, or customer if necessary. It also enables companies to customize activities and manage service delivery for key customers. This is particularly useful for internal or external shared service providers.
“Simplifying the management of process variations allows companies to save both time and money, while enabling them to control and improve customized services and activities,” Seselj explains.
BPM experts who previewed the Promapp PVM Module apparently agree. IDC market analyst Joseph Hsiao notes, “Managing process variations is a big issue for multi-national enterprises who need to enable a certain level of localization. Most companies are challenged with business process mapping – standardizing business processes and creating a single source of truth. That is what Promapp does really well.”
Steve Stanton of FCB Partners concurs, adding, “Ninety percent of the organizations I know have failed at standardization. The fact that Promapp can identify and calculate the cost of process variants is very powerful.”
Promapp clients who have been given pre-launch access to PVM are also impressed.
Neal Ross, Director, IT & Services, Konica Minolta Business Solutions Australia, explains, “We have an APAC regional imperative to standardize business processes. The initial program to standardize our core processes on our ERP platform was successful from an IT perspective, however the impact of different business process requirements at a local level caused real problems for business users, service levels, and costs.”
“We are establishing an APAC region Center of Excellence which includes process management and governance,” he adds. “Promapp’s Process Variant Management Module allows local owners to manage their variations, while allowing the Center of Excellence visibility and governance of all regional processes.”
Since entering the US market in 2014, Promapp has added a number of key clients, including national construction company JE Dunn, global talent solutions company MSI, and business consulting and technology solutions company MorganFranklin Consulting, LLC.
Promapp introduced its Process Variant Management software today at the Business Performance Excellence USA conference in San Francisco. For more information about the Promapp Process Variant Management Module or other Promapp products, visit www.promapp.com.
