What is process mapping?

Process mapping software is a powerful business tool that makes it easy to view your organization’s processes step-by-step so you can better understand them and ensure continuous improvement, quality assurance, and risk management.

Creating a single, centralized process map lets employees gain greater visibility into their processes, proactively identify the tasks in need of optimization, and improve the way they work.

Understand and optimize your processes

Making processes visible, auditable, and easy to monitor provides real benefit for organizations of any size. Only when you can visualize the individual tasks that make up your business processes can you begin to reduce bottlenecks, streamline your operations, and optimize your resources.

Greater standardization and control

Process mapping takes scattered, ad hoc information about processes and puts it in one place for everyone to see. This improves visibility and compliance, decreases confusion, and keeps processes running smoothly.

Increased collaboration

Process mapping establishes a culture where everyone has a say in the processes that involve them. Constant feedback, suggestions, and star-ratings encourage employees to relay their thoughts on how to optimize their tasks.

Room for growth

Visually mapping your processes helps you fully understand how your organization operates and identify inefficiencies and opportunities for automation to reduce costs and boost productivity.
