FRISCO, Texas – August 18, 2006 – Ingenuus Software Inc., the leading supplier of Enterprise Process Orchestration (EPO) software, announced today, that it has entered into a strategic partnership with Executive Smarts, LLC of Dallas, Texas to deliver process improvement and automation services to small and midsized companies.
Under the terms of the partnership, Executive Smarts will offer process assessment, process documentation, process mapping, and process improvement consulting services. Ingenuus will provide the automation technology to allow these businesses to validate the process steps and tasks, gather metrics on performance, and analyze the data for improvement.
“When a company wants to address organizational excellence they look at their processes first,” says Jim Stewart, Executive Smarts CEO. Consultants from Executive Smarts work with executives and operations personnel to document and map critical processes that have never been documented or are in need of improvement. “In many cases,” explains Stewart, “the process has never been correctly documented. Just documenting and mapping the process is an incredibly useful exercise for everyone involved.”
Once a process is documented and mapped, companies often stop there. It is difficult to implement formal changes, and without formal changes with the appropriate data gathering to insure that the process is being followed, companies cannot realize the full benefit of the process documentation exercise. It takes time and effort on the part of the people using the process to collect the data for analysis. Without process automation, the task can be daunting. In the end, though, you cannot improve what you do not measure.
“Working with Executive Smarts, we have jointly developed a way to document and map a process, and deploy it over the web so that a company can use it immediately,” says Chris Williams, Ingenuus CEO. “The system automatically collects the data and metrics needed for review while the process is being used, and provides the discipline required to follow the documented process.” Companies that take advantage of this unique combination of consulting and technology will be able to complete an organizational excellence program faster and easier, while realizing more benefit sooner.
