Rapid Process Improvement
A fast solution for a small need that makes a big difference
Rapid Process Improvement (RPI) digitally transforms manual business processes into easy-to-use Apps with consistent and assured results, delivering improved operational efficiencies and increased productivity.
As technological advancement steams ahead for the critical operational needs, many organisations start to lag behind for the routine processes, sticking to ‘the way we’ve always done things’, often continuing inefficiencies that could easily benefit from digitisation.
You’d like to have a more efficient and ‘right first time’ process but you don’t know where to start, and your IT team may be stretched.
We have a solution. As part of our substantial transformation and change management skills and toolkit, we have developed Rapid Process Improvement.
EXAMPLE USE CASES
- Automate expense claim procedures
- Allocation of car parking slots
- Following defined Health and Safety check lists
RPI helps our clients automate those inefficient processes into high performing, efficient Apps. Our change consultants, working with our digital experts, deliver the complete solution:
As part of our transformation consultancy, we assess current systems and processes that are laborious, inefficient and hinder transformation. We then convert this learning into a simple digital framework of procedures, working with our digital team. Through this approach, we:
Utilise your existing Microsoft licences to unleash free or low-cost tools
Work with your operational, change management and IT teams to implement RPI in ‘bite size’ projects (10-30 days project time)
Make the app available for all users, who follow the predefined process to deliver results
Support the testing and launch phases to ensure that employees can easily use and manage the Apps after initial roll-out
We provide first line support for assistance with up to 2 changes per year
You can choose to administer the service in-house
Outputs and Outcomes
Employees are empowered to enhance services that require low or no coding experience, to streamline processes and improve efficiencies
You can ensure consistency with a single version of a process and app. Whether streamlining sign-off procedures, designing an online area dedicated to employee wellbeing, or hosting expenses in one place – we can support in the technological design and implementation
Impact on IT teams is minimised. We work with IT to use already installed software, which does not require any overhauling of systems and processes, or demand huge budgets to set-up and run
We leave behind digital solutions that transform organisations. With minimal spend and disruption but maximum impact, we help organisations to create greater efficiencies and to modernise practices
