New: MCA Map Pro – Process Mapping
Many college processes are not designed, but evolve, often in a very ad hoc way, with changes in circumstances and personnel making matters worse. Where major reorganisations and mergers happen this can lead to a situation in which the original process no longer fits the revised organisation structure. In this situation the personnel involved often need to find a workaround solution. This is stressful, inefficient and almost always expensive.
Problems also occur where processes are not adequately documented and key members of the team leave, taking with them valuable procedural knowledge.
MCA Map Pro provides an ideal and totally transparent way to harmonise, re-align and/or just generally improve processes to effect beneficial change.
MCA Map Pro is more than just revolutionary, market leading process mapping software. It is a whole support system including input from trained process mapping specialists.
Our consultants will undertake the initial mapping exercise and train your personnel on how to get the best from the software.
MCA Map Pro has a number of features that help users to improve processes:
Collaborative Process Workshops – The MCA Map Pro service is designed to rapidly capture your organisation’s processes, in engaging collaborative workshops. No need for taking photos, using sticky notes or writing them up later, your processes are captured straight into Map Pro.
Zoom In & Out Of The Detail – Create strategic level processes and drill down into the high level steps until you reach the level of detail you need. Your processes are perfectly aligned and integrated. Search by role, activity, outcome and keywords.
Instantly Create Job Descriptions – As soon as you’ve captured your processes you can create detailed job descriptions at the click of a button. Understand handovers, roles, responsibilities (e.g. RATSI) and utilisation. Clarify who is responsible for what.
Capture Requirements, Issues, Risks, Ideas & Controls – All your process related information can be recorded directly against the process steps and stored in one place. Identify which activities take the longest and cost the most, how costs are distributed and what are the delays affecting efficiency. Simple reports allow you to quickly extract the information in the context of the process and understand the impact of cost and time.
Share & Collaborate – All your process information is securely stored in one place and can be shared with anyone anywhere through a Web browser. Collect and action feedback from your colleagues & stakeholders.
Interactive Process Portal – Make your processes available to the whole organisation to use as training and compliance. All processes can be approved and published by process owners with a history of changes.

“Following the success we had in mapping our MIS processes it was an easy decision to extend it to other processes in the College. The response from everyone was very positive..”
