DEVELOPMENT PHASE

The EBIT and value of a portfolio company relate directly to the productivity within the company.

Precisely optimized information technology is the key for the sustainable improvement of process efficiency.

PROCOMM offers methods, tools and consulting services aligned exactly to these needs. The DIGITAL BUSINESS-DEVELOPMENT approach consists of three steps:

Analysis

The purpose of the Analysis is the exact identification of areas for improvement including their respective potentials. It consists of the following aspects:

  • list To what degree are resources utilized in each organizational unit?
  • list How efficient is each process?
  • list Are investments in IT aligned with the strategic importance?
  • list Which of the processes are fully automated?

Business-Development

Based on the results of the analysis, business processes are optimized, in most cases through automation or integration. The now known and unused capacities are disestablished, and areas of growth potentials are strengthened. The EBIT is increased directly through improvements in process efficiency.

To achieve the improvements, a wide variety of tools and methods are available. The most suitable ones are selected according to the analysis' results. A few examples:

  • list System integration where multiple manual data entry occurs
  • list Automation of repetitive operations using appropriate standard software packages where available, or tailor-made solutions for company-specific tasks of strategic importance
  • list IT costs are broken down per organizational unit so that IT investments can be aligned with the corporate strategy

Monitoring

Improvement of business processes is an ongoing course under the control of the management. PROCOMM therefore provides the suitable monitoring tools:

  • list Utilization of resources: Where are unused capacities?
  • list Processing time: Where are potentials for efficiency improvements?
  • list Trend analysis: Is business development on track?
