Controlling process variations is a major headache for many organizations, especially those with:

Businesses that need Process Variant Management

In fact, 90% of organizations fail at process standardization.

Standardization is a very common and very difficult problem. And because the consequences of non-standardization are not calculated, many companies don’t know how much it is costing them. The minute you make that visible, it becomes a much more solvable problem. Steve Stanton — Pioneer in business model innovation

Until now, managing process variations has been unnecessarily complex. Lack of oversight and control over the number and type of variations is a costly problem for organizations, resulting in inconsistent execution, administrative burden for global process owners and standard processes that are not relevant to all teams. 

Finally, a simple way to manage process variations

The Process Variant Management (PVM) Module from Promapp makes it possible to establish standardized processes with controlled variations. We make it easy to own or eliminate process variations and in turn, improve transparency, compliance and control.

Simplifying the management of process variations allows companies to save both time and money, while enabling them to control and improve customized services and activities. See how we've simplified Process Variant Management first hand with a 30 day free trial.

What makes Promapp's Process Variant Management Module different?

We've made it simple to manage process variations. 

Unlike competing products, the Promapp PVM Module enables the standardization of processes across the entire company, while simply incorporating process variations to meet the requirements of a specific corporate location, product, or customer if necessary. It also enables companies to customize activities and manage service delivery for key customers.

Like Promapp, the PVM Module is designed for use by everyday business teams. Creating a process variation is as simple as establishing the standard process, creating variations and making them available to the right people within your organization. Promapp makes it easy to identify, calculate and report on the cost of both global and process specific variations.

This iteration [Process Variant Management] is very exciting – especially the level of innovation you put in the hands of the end user. Joseph Hsiao — IDC Market Analyst

What are people saying about PVM?

Process standardization has always been at odds with business agility. In today’s dynamic digital world, enterprises must empower their people to manage processes dynamically in order to meet changing customer demands while simultaneously managing costs and compliance mandates. Promapp’s process variant management module balances these competing priorities.Jason Bloomberg - President, Intellyx
As you evolve your processes you realise there are little differences. So you find work arounds… The processes are now [with PVM] much more likely to be accurate and up-to-date. And the more trust staff have in referring to them, the more consistent our practices will be.Jaid Dawson - Business Performance Improvement Team Manager, Regional Australia Bank
Almost every multi-national company has to deal with the challenge of managing process variants.  Usually the solutions are overly complex.  I like this approach because it is simple.Jim Sinur — Aragon Research
The PVM Module is so useful for combining similar processes into one. Once they are all captured, we'll review and probably change or eliminate some of the variations so we can settle on the new standard process that's best for our customers. That's the exciting part for us.Damian McFarlane - Queanbeyan-Palerang Regional Council
Most companies are challenged with business process mapping – standardising business processes and creating a single source of truth. This is what Promapp does really well. Joseph Hsiao - Market Analyst, IDC
We have three ways to manage technical product projects within our business. These project types are almost identical, with only a few variations between them. PVM has allowed us to document the most complex processes then simply map the variations for the other project types. We are extremely pleased with the new PVM capability and see it as a significant game changer for us. Karen Bennett - General Manager Business Excellence APAC, SAI Global
In most organizations, process standardization is a costly myth. Leadership teams are lulled into a sense of security, but those neatly defined processes almost instantly mutate once they’re released into ‘the wild’ — often with costly and unforeseen consequences. Promapp’s unique approach enables organizations to standardize while managing the necessary variants that are required of real-world processes in the modern, complex enterprise. Charles Araujo - Principle Analyst, Intellyx
The fact that Promapp can identify and calculate the cost of process variants is very powerful. Steve Stanton - Pioneer of Business Model Innovation
We need Process Variant Management functionality as we have customer and region specific variations… Now, we will be able to see each variant and more importantly, identify the cost and impact of each process variation. We will achieve better management of process variations so will be able to better manage risk. Anthony Barrett - General Manager IT, Toll New Zealand
