Process mapping helps teams to visualize their workflow processes in a digital format. Processes can quickly become convoluted in the ideation stage, often skimming over vital details or not incorporating cross-department collaboration. A well-mapped business process helps teams and organizations see where bottlenecks can be avoided, how collaboration can be incorporated easily, and which tasks can be automated instead of done manually. Employees then have a clear picture of responsibilities and approvers and where tasks can be automated, making process cycles quicker and more streamlined.
Streamlining the processes that run within an organization can be a difficult process. Business processes are often not documented, meaning that each process can have unnecessary or even missed steps, taking processes longer to complete. Mapping out a process manually can be equally painstaking, especially when collaboration is needed. As a result, teams are left in the dark and are unaware of how effective their processes are, creating more work hours than necessary and decreasing efficiency.
Process maps must be easy to read and understand in order to make an impact. FireStart utilizes a visual BPMN 2.0 standard with an easy-to-use drag and drop function. Easily create process map diagrams in seconds to clearly see who is responsible, where resources are allocated, and which tasks can be automated.
Work with team members across departments to build cohesive process maps. Use FireStart’s integrated collaboration tools to share feedback in real-time. Integrate feedback instantly to keep process maps updated at all times. Notifications via integrations like Microsoft Teams and Outlook increases process auditability and drives efficiency.
Keep all process maps stored in one centralized location to prevent fragmentation. FireStart utilizes a central repository to store all process maps across departments, processes and workflows, so each process map is always easy to access and backed up. Improve accessibility for all team members and ensure no process data is lost.
Ensure everyone is on the same page when it comes to organizational processes with digital process mapping. FireStart’s easy-to-understand BPMN 2.0 process mapping format ensures that all process nuances are documented and simple to interpret. Teams can then work collaboratively to refine and streamline existing processes in order to reduce cycle times and increase output.
Digitizing process mapping ensures that processes are well planned out, include all the necessary steps, and are assigned to the corresponding team members. Unlike manual process mapping, where paper can be lost, process maps in FireStart are backed up in the central repository, ensuring no data is lost. Team members are now aware of their role within a broader process, giving a big-picture view, boosting team motivation, and simplifying often complex and multifaceted processes. With more transparency and better visibility, teams can now collaborate and work more in sync with one another, boosting organizational productivity and enhancing the bottom line.
