Cloud-based business process management company Promapp has extended its feature functionality with the launch of Lean Tagging, ensuring that organisations can integrate lean improvement initiatives into day-to-day business operations.
Aligned with continuous improvement methodologies, including Lean, Kaizen and Six Sigma, Promapp’s Lean Tagging enables teams to identify inefficiencies within processes, prioritise the reduction of non-value-add activities and waste, and track, manage and report on opportunities for improvement.
Lean techniques have traditionally been a popular choice for organisations seeking to work smarter and improve efficiency. However, organisations that want a truly lean organisation need to be able to translate ideas into everyday practices.
“Right now, there is a disconnect between business improvement and lean thinking, says Ivan Seselj, CEO, Promapp. “We have these terms and labels that we apply to improvement but they are passive language only.
“Lean thinking needs to be totally engaged with process, it needs to be visual and it needs to be easy to use so that organisations can drive innovation and continuous improvement, and then promote track, identify and report on improvement opportunities and benefits.”
Lean Tagging now enables organisations to achieve the true benefits of lean with value-add and waste reduction ideas uncovered in lean projects or workshops successfully embedded into the day-to-day operations of the business.
Promapp’s wide range of public and private sector customers includes: Toyota, McDonald’s, Coca-Cola Amatil, Lantec, TeliaSonera, Ricoh Australia, Konica Minolta, Fuji Xerox, Air New Zealand, Audi Australia and the Department of Justice, Victoria.
