Differentia Solutions, in partnership with Nimbus Partners, offers a whole new class of business process management software. One that provides the organisation with the capability to own, manage, improve and use every process.
…Nimbus Control 2007
Nimbus’ flagship solution, Control 2007, enables organizations to capture, analyze and communicate a common set of processes that can be used to manage and transform the organisation. The use of Control 2007 dramatically reduces the time, effort and cost required to deliver effective process management and drives more successful adoption of process by all stakeholders.
…people first and foremost
People are the drivers of the processes. Every person in the organisation has a part to play in process management. Process management is not just for IT or business analysts. It needs the involvement of everyone or it just won’t work. And it is not just a passing phase, for lasting success attention to process must be a sustained effort.
…workshops that are alive
Designed to be used in live process capture workshops, Control 2007 facilitates and accelerates the identification, definition and capture of selective operational processes on screen, linking to them, any associated data and information. With the appropriate people involved the organisation gains consensus there and then on actions, responsibilities and roles. This involvement ensures participant’s buy in. Using Control 2007 saves time, effort and costs – both in the application of this approach and in the processes it maps. Also, the resulting process improvements reduce costs and enhance operational efficiency. And another thing: the thought of process mapping might make your heart sink, but the simplicity and speed of live workshops means you see processes captured on screen before your eyes.
…aligning the findings
When the relevant processes have been captured, Control 2007 allows associated roles, information and performance metrics to be linked to the appropriate point in the process. By capturing this, you have the means to fully understand the purpose and impact of each process. And this understanding ensures that processes that don’t work or aren’t satisfactory can quickly be identified and optimised.
As your organisation makes improvements, and as it evolves to meet new challenges, things change. As such the processes, and related information, will have to change as well. Sounds like a lot of administrative time and effort, especially when people have their jobs to do. But Control 2007 manages version control, logs changes, sends automatic notification to and acknowledgement from users, and provides a full audit history.
…one version of the truth
If you don’t have one source of information that is easily kept up to date, then your processes won’t be maintained and no-one will trust them or see them as reliable. So they won’t get used. The single source of truth created using Control 2007 becomes self-sustaining. Processes are accurate and maintained, and because changes are communicated, employees stay engaged. Processes are fully audited so that you can see what has been changed, when and by whom. Personalised delivery via a collaborative portal puts process information at the fingertips of employees, simply through a browser.

“In order to drive adoption by staff in departments, we were looking not only to improve our process mapping approach, but to deliver this with integrated, relevant information. Also, we wanted to embed performance measures within the context of the process. This is what Control 2007 has made possible; it suits our purposes ideally. Control 2007 is becoming firmly established as the way we identify, capture, improve and communicate processes within the council”
