With the IT-Matchmaker®, you can plan the design and further development of your software landscape and manage the entire life cycle of your business software from the analysis of the status quo to the selection and implementation of the appropriate solution to continuous maintenance and optimization based on your individual business processes.
Never before have companies had to adapt so flexibly and quickly to changing market conditions as they do today. To withstand the increasing competitive pressure, new business models and product strategies must be developed, more flexible organizational structures created and customers, as well as partners, must be more closely integrated into the processes. As a result, business processes in many companies are changing almost continuously, usually accompanied by new requirements for hardware and software support.
Therefore, it should be checked regularly whether processes and software are still properly interlinked, i.e. whether the software landscape used still meets these requirements and whether the existing applications are used by the employees in the way that brings the greatest benefit.
Expandable reference process reference catalogue, with which you can record and visualise your individual company processes efficiently.
Simple structuring of process catalogues and classification of processes via metadata (e.g. process owner, software application used, etc.)
Simple and transparent recording and management of improvement potentials with reference to processes, IT systems and master data

The implementation of a complex business software (e.g. ERP, ECM, CRM, MES etc.) is a multidimensional project that can present even experienced project managers and their team with great challenges. It is not only necessary to integrate the new application into the existing application landscape as smoothly as possible, but also to "take along" all employees who are to work with the new solution in the future. In addition, it must be ensured that the implementation partner also delivers what was agreed - if possible within the planned duration and at no additional cost.
