    • 01 INTRODUCTIONTraditionally, Process Modelling tools, documents, flowcharts, power point presentations areused for defining/representing business processes. It was observed and realized that sometimesthese media are failed to provide a clear representation of the E2E picture, process flow andtimelines.Some challenges are also observed in share/distribute information, imparting trainings, onlinelearning, check/test user knowledge and capability.To address these short comings, a colorful, vibrant and interactive digital visualization tool wasdeveloped Called PRIDE (PRocess Interactive DEpicter). PRIDE is useful for providing therealistic view of business processes, multimedia presentation, training pack and e-Learningsolutions to customer community. It uses visualization and animation techniques for easyunderstanding.This whitepaper covers business challenges, solution, methodology and business benefits ofPRIDE.02 PROBLEM STATEMENTS FOR SERVICE INDUSTRYDifficulty in addressing various business requirements with common process visualizationalways leads to issues like standardizing visualization to multiple requirements.03 OPERATIONAL CHALLENGES AND SOLUTIONThe Most common operational challenges were to: Improve Cycle Time RFT Reduce Exceptions2 © Tech Mahindra Limited 2009
    • Better Quick Reference Training Material Regular Knowledge updates Issue ManagementTo overcome these challenges PRIDE was formulated. PRIDE tool helps: To make interactive process models for easy & fast learning of captured processes from operational communities. To consolidate all the details like operating procedures, low level process, system screens, etc… in a single pack it help to make quick decision. Applications developed using PRIDE Tool act as a single repository for making all the information easier to refer and manage by various communities. It helps to reduce CT of user’s own activities.3.1 COMPARISION OF VARIOUS TOOLS WITH PRIDELet’s compare few features of PRIDE with modeling and other tool for better understanding Process Modeling Other Tool Parameter PRIDE Tools (ARIS) (MS PowerPoint) Friendly for all kind of Friendly for Business applications (e.g. Process Friendly for Business User Interface and Commercial modeling, Training pack, e- Process Modeling presentation Learning module, multimedia presentation etc) Supports rich interactive Rich Interactive Supports interactive Supports interactive content with high quality Content content content graphics Supports pre-defined Supports pre-defined Supports user defined 2D Animation basic animation basic animation and 3D animation 3 © Tech Mahindra Limited 2009

Users can easily access all the processes andprocedural documents through one gateway reducing their time and efforts significantly.4 © Tech Mahindra Limited 2009
    • 05 BUSINESS BENEFITS • Helps in building common understanding of processes and solutions across different user communities such as Business Stakeholders, Design Communities, Service Management Centers and Customers etc. • Creates interactive bonding of high level process, system interfaces, low level procedures, screens shots associated with process • Very useful to deliver customer briefings – Allows multilayered information sharing to hide complexities in interactive way • Very useful as online training tool - Requires less time and money as compared to faculty led trainings to the new joiners and interested users • Around 100 users were benefited by using the Training pack developed to train on the E2E processes • Intranet publishing of training reduces demand on SMEs and gold users • Single repository for all the information makes it easier to refer and manage • Easy for users to access all the process and procedural documents through one gateway which reduces their time and efforts significantly. The Search facility and document library provides handy and quick reference to all the available informationFew example of PRIDE work are shown below 5 © Tech Mahindra Limited 2009
    • Explains Process Solution to Ops community/ Stakeholders using Interactive Process Viewer, Interactive Solution Presenter, reduce time to understand the solution as compared to technical designs. Reduces decision time for Stakeholders to progress the solution to implementation6 © Tech Mahindra Limited 2009
    • Design details are restricted to design / technical community, however the others communities can easily understand the same solution using this tool which results time reduction in accepting the solution and progress it for implementation. Live Dashboardsfor Management team indicating the status/ progress of Orders / faults To enhance learning experience, training or Online reference material helps in exceptionreference material can be developed using this tool management or quick reference for the users with better interactiveness. All the above benefits in reducing time of operation/usage, expect correct data inputs or correct actions, increase in efficiency and resource effectiveness. 7 © Tech Mahindra Limited 2009
