  • What is difference between ProcessNow™? and ProcessNow Pro™?
    The main difference between ProcessNow™ and ProcessNow Pro™ is the software which is used to create the Process Maps. ProcessNow™ uses Microsoft Visio for building and editing the process maps. ProcessNow Pro™ uses ARIS, one of the leading tools used for process mapping. With ARIS, it is possible to navigate and drill down from one level to another with the application itself. It is also possible to add “best practices” and “metrics” to various processes.
    ProcessNow™ is for customers who are new into the world of process mapping, don’t have an ARIS license, want to document their planning processes quickly and have no plans to integrate it with SAP solution manager in future.
    ProcessNow Pro™ is for more advanced customers who either already have an ARIS license or are planning to buy in the near future, have good understanding of process mapping and want to integrate the process maps with SAP solution manager.

  • Can ProcessNow™ be customized as per my company needs?
    Yes! ProcessNow™ and ProcessNow Pro™ can be easily customized as per clients’ processes and needs. The pre-built Level 4-6 process maps can be customized to reflect the actual planning processes as mapped in SAP APO.

  • Can my APO training documents be linked with ProcessNow™?
    ProcessNow™ and ProcessNow Pro™ can be converted into an integrated knowledge repository so that all the relevant training documents, scenario documents, RICEFs details, etc. are linked to the various processes at different levels.

  • How will ProcessNow™ be delivered?
    ProcessNow™ will be delivered as a portal which can be located on the intranet of the company. For easy navigation, different levels of the process maps will be arranged in a tree structure so that each level and its further details can be collapsed and expanded as required. Apart from this, the master copy of the various process maps will be delivered in Microsoft Visio or ARIS, depending on the version of ProcessNow™ purchased.

  • Is SAP APO a pre-requisite to use ProcessNow™?
    The full benefits of ProcessNow™ will be realized when SAP APO is either already implemented or is going to be implemented soon. However, it is still useful even without SAP APO since the process maps up to Level 4, and to an extent Level 5, are generic. We are currently in the process of building ProcessesNow™ for Oracle and Kinaxis as well.

    For the portal, there are no specific system requirements.
