Leverage BPM across your manufacturing operations using the power of HighGear.
Modern manufacturing faces immense operational challenges, notably managing accelerating rates of change, driving the need to develop new business processes, modify existing workflows and deploy critical processes within very short time frames.
HighGear is the Lean BPM pioneer and provides core Business Process Management functionality for your business for around 20% of the cost of traditional BPMS and allows operational staff to design, modify and push live critical processes in minutes and hours, not months or years.
We see three typical types of Lean BPM implementations within our manufacturing client base: single process transformation, achieving agility with legacy business applications/processes, and end-to-end automation and transformation.
