Dallas, TX (PRWEB) October 1, 2008
CodePartners, a software development firm, is pleased to offer business process documentation services to their clients, which include Sage Software business partners and leading financial service companies around the world.
"Our Sage Software business partner clients and our financial services clients have access to our resources to provide business process documentation services to their clients at a cost that preserves a profit margin. Whether the documentation proceeds a software development project or is a part of an implementation project, we strongly recommend documenting a client's current processes," said Brian Terrell, CPA and founder of CodePartners. "This not only gives everyone a thorough understanding of the project, but it also helps the client justify the investment and make an informed decision about the work they are considering. We have found that when companies invest in process documentation up front, they are happier with the end result."
For some companies, regulatory compliance requirements, such as those imposed by Sarbanes-Oxley and OSHA, dictate the need for process documentation. However, the benefits of business process documentation are much more far reaching. The process provides protection from business interruptions due to unplanned events such as employee turnover by documenting essential daily, month-end, and management reporting procedures. It is also vital for understanding and communicating functional requirements for system implementations and customizations, saving both time and money for all parties involved.
The method of documenting a company's processes begins with identifying key areas. Next are employee interviews, which result in the first version of the documentation in flow chart format. From there, complete processes and procedures are written. "Companies like that everything is written out in black and white," said Brian. "Redundancies, gaps in work flow, and control issues are all identified. From here, an objective determination can be made as to where automation can help them improve."
