Achieve ERP Success with Strategic Business Process Management

Strategic Business Process Management Proves Its Value In Achieving ERP Success and Throughout the Life of Companies

Business process management (BPM), made practical and efficient with To-Increase RapidValue, can help companies accomplish successful, strategic ERP deployments—and much more. Businesses across industries use BPM to become more efficient and valuable to their customers, and so do the technology partners and ISVs that serve them. The benefit potential of BPM is enormous. We will be taking a closer look at it today and in upcoming blog posts.

By using To-Increase RapidValue, our value-driven BPM tool, you can achieve a strategically sound ERP implementation that enables people, processes, and technology to align behind the company’s business goals. Along the way, you have an opportunity to improve your businesses processes and start your use of the ERP system on the basis of optimized workflows. When our strategic partners bring you industry-best practices and processes in RapidValue, your ERP implementation becomes even more streamlined, because you can take advantage of processes that have already been proven successful.

Customers regularly use BPM to achieve those results. They also show remarkable creativity in using RapidValue to create long-term benefits from BPM. Even companies that did not rely on BPM to support their ERP deployment, including many of the partners and ISVs we collaborate with, as well as some customers, now use RapidValue to accomplish improvements that benefit the markets they serve.

BPM Helps Create Higher Customer Value

Some of our key partners now follow a value-driven BPM approach when addressing their customers’ complex issues. Engineers and project managers work with their customers to define goals, establish deliverables, document and optimize the processes these deliverables need to support, model them within the solution, and eventually deliver them with great efficiency. They use RapidValue’s capabilities to create and publish process oriented documentation and user guidance for their products. This helps them provide their customers with an outstanding, continuously improving value experience. It also helps them unearth process optimizations and efficiencies that make their practice more profitable.

Business objectives, processes, stakeholder needs, and solution capabilities are described in RapidValue, reducing the dependencies on hard-to-reach experts that typically slow things down if people move on or are busy with other projects. The role-based user and process guidance provided by RapidValue BPM help a company’s employees keep customer concerns top-of-mind, and is very important in getting their customers up to speed and working productively with their new systems.

Using BPM to Build Better Software

Similarly, ISVs we know are drawing on RapidValue-powered BPM to document, model, and optimize the business processes that their solutions support. They incorporate industry expertise and best practices into the process content of RapidValue, and, in the same tool, manage progressive iterations of their products with their various enhancements and improvements. When it comes to creating meaningful, contextual user guidance, RapidValue is the right tool to accomplish that with ease.

Serving as a simple central repository for reusable, maintainable business strategy and process knowledge, RapidValue helps teams deliver strategically aligned enhancements in the way companies operate. The value-driven BPM approach and process-oriented mindset can ensure that joint projects proceed smoothly and deliver outstanding, lasting value to all parties.
