XSOL : Bringing The Digital World And The Real World Together...
XSOL software shows what your employees do in real life. They can see their own desk, machine or work area and how it fits in with their co-workers to complete the processes on which your business depends.
It is this connection with real life that really engages employees in the vision of the organisation, unlocking the energy and agility that you normally only see in a ‘start-up’. It’s an environment in which employees contribute far greater value than when they feel they are a ‘cog in a machine’, isolated in a department.
This is the visible difference: XSOL documents real life. The invisible difference: real life information is captured in a model, making it easy to change, and opening the door to lots of on-time, on-budget business improvement opportunities.
XSOL is the only process modelling software that can do this.

I can’t understand it.”

Business Is A Complex Mechanism
Imagine as a senior manager being able to take a satellite view of your organisation, and then drill down into a facility, then to a department, then to a process, stage, and task level.
Imagine truly understanding what it is your team does each day, who does it, and how it interacts with everything else that everyone else does.
How much better would your organisation run if everyone understood this implicitly?
Understanding Is Critical To Success
The more complex the subject the more important it is to use the brevity of visualization which is unambiguous, rather than lengthy text that is open to interpretation, and which cannot readily convey the 3D relationships that exist in the complexity.
Graphics quickly convey understanding that words cannot achieve.
Basic Workflow Is Not Enough
The flow of work passing from desk to desk (or machine) has different constraints to the sequencing of tasks undertaken at each desk. It requires a 2-tier approach, not a simple single level flow diagram.
The flow of work through a process can be easily elicited from the staff members involved, at their desk or workplace. With the flow agreed, getting details of tasks performed at each desk (or machine) is best achieved by an analyst to ensure consistency of detail company-wide. And with the 2-tier approach, an analyst only has to focus on capturing details of tasks that are critical to the outcome of the project.
Process Modelling v. Process Mapping
Process Mapping software describes business process in words and flow charts, typified by Microsoft Word and Visio drawing tools. These Mapping tools are flexible, but a lack of built-in integrity makes it difficult for even the most advanced user to change their content to any substantial degree.
Process Modelling, as the name suggests, is centered on a preconfigured model of business activity and organizational structure. Process model visualization is powerful because the images actually represent business components that can be reorganized without compromising integrity.
In Process Mapping the images are drawings, boxes with no relationship to other process elements, enabling a common task to be duplicated with different descriptions, leading to different results from ostensibly the same work. The non-structured, non-interactive nature of the great majority of process maps means that they are "built once, and filed/forgotten forever".
Get To "Aha" More Quickly...
Where accuracy and cost-effective process definition is required nothing beats Process Modelling, and XSOL InOrder is the leading Process Modelling software.
But while XSOL promotes visualization it also allows for the capture of text, forms, images, analytics, and integrates with other data sources such as SharePoint and specialist documentation systems such as quality control. This interactivity ensures that XSOL remains used and usable within an organisation long after other tools have been filed and forgotten.
