Haarslev considers business processes as a critical, strategic asset in running a global company. Preben Nielsen, ERP Project Manager at Haarslev Industries, says, “If you don’t have a process approach, you won’t be able to evolve.”
Consolidating on a single ERP system worldwide required Haarslev to implement master data management and standardize its processes. The company chose To-Increase RapidValue to manage the business process management (BPM) aspect of its ERP implementation.
Haarslev took full advantage of the standardized, best practice-based processes included in RapidValue. Says Nielsen, “It was a great help that we did not have to create critical processes from scratch. Having these predefined processes in RapidValue saved us quite a bit of time in getting the value chain created.”
Currently, Haarslev is going through the analysis and design stages of its global ERP rollout. A core solution and template in RapidValue set the standard for the project. Any process changes will be documented in RapidValue, where it’s easy to model their impact on other processes and the roles performing them. “We are using RapidValue to define our requirements and customizations,” says Nielsen. “It is a common tool that documents how we work, and that we can also share with our partners.”
In RapidValue, Haarslev defines and standardizes business roles as well as processes. The company will also rely on RapidValue to ensure that employees receive all the training they need. Nielsen explains, “Everything related to roles, positions, and jobs will be embedded in RapidValue. We will have a solution documented by role and by system. If we get a new employee, we know what kind of training and user rights the individual is going to need.”
