While taking inventory, we will take an interdisciplinary look at various technical departments and make sure that new assets are also landing in the inventory and in addition, include sufficient information in order to be able to manage hardware and software life cycles. This includes, in addition, the “Begin of Life” and “End of Life”; in other words, from purchase/lease/rental of the assets all the way to their disposal/malfunction/storage.
Your commercial processes such as, for example, purchase/acquisition or extensions of contract and maintenance will also be brought into focus. The goal in all of this is to inventory as many assets as possible. Only then can we achieve the necessary transparency to remain capable of acting even after the end of the project. We will call to your attention possibilities for automating commercial transactions. This can occur, for example, through the application of automated shopping systems (order processing) and automated cost center accounting.
To do this, a profound understanding of all your structures and processes is needed along with in-depth technical know-how. We will analyze how the current corporate processes are organized and how costs are being calculated (internal shared service center structure vs. classic cost center allocation), how roles and rights are distributed within the company, who the contact persons are for technical issues and much more.
As soon as our consultants have achieved a precise picture, they can start to deliver profitable suggestions. After detailed stocktaking, our consultants will submit recommendation and establish processes whereby you alone or with our help can periodically render resolutions and decisions. In so doing, we will of course, always respect the jurisdictions within your company. In other words, we can establish connections and hold clarification sessions on short notice.
Last but not least, SAM Processes also takes a look at strategic subject matter such as, for example, budget planning for software expenditures in the following year. Together with you, we define “product owners” and “process owners”, sketch the processes graphically and integrate them into your procedural landscape. We are also able to integrate SAM processes into existing quality assurance systems and process management systems, so that you can also benefit over the long term from such costly subjects as a “friendly audit”.
