“Organizations such as Mold-Masters have been struggling to find the ideal tool to measure the effectiveness of their ERP systems – until now,” sais Dr. Ferri Abolhassan, Co-chairman and CEO of IDS Scheer. “ARIS PPM presents a huge opportunity for current SAP customers such as Mold-Masters, as well as prospective users, by providing them with a digital dashboard to track each phase of an individual process and take any corrective action to make necessary adjustments.” According to Abolhassan, Mold-Masters used the plug in applications from ARIS PPM to integrate with SAP and to track its major sales cycle. “We set up ARIS PPM to track a customer throughout every phase of the sales cycle – from quotation to sales order to shipment of items to billing to cash receipt,” he adds. “We were amazed at how quickly and seamlessly ARIS PPM integrated with our SAP system. In five days, we were able to obtain comprehensive management reports,” said Jonathon Fischer, Founder and CEO, Mold-Masters. “We can now review the speed of each process, step by step, by customer or customer group, sales office, distribution center, manufacturing facility or by a specific sales rep.”
Mold-Masters can also view processes by products or product groups. For example, Mold-Masters can review delivery performance by product and monitor the changes over time. “We struggled for a long time to find the best tool to help extract the ROI from our SAP system and achieve process improvements. ARIS PPM has provided the framework in which we can build and better analyze the SAP data,” adds Fischer. IDS Scheer recently announced a new version of ARIS PPM. ARIS PPM 3.1 includes Corporate Performance Management for long-term process optimization as well as Business Activity Modeling for near real-time distribution of performance indicators of ongoing business processes. This new version bridges the gap between corporate strategy and operative implementation to link performance and leadership levels. It also opens up new optimization levels in end-to-end processes such as order processing, procurement and customer service processes. The new Customizing Toolkit (CTK) in version 3.1 accelerates the introduction of ARIS PPM by reducing the implementation workload by up to 40 percent, and its automated checks greatly simplifies system customization.
