sycat Process Designer

Model, optimize, document processes

Version:  8.5

Demo version

Fast and easy process modeling

With the sycat Process Designer, business processes can be modeled quickly and easily in different levels of detail, thanks to the intuitive user interface and predefined modeling conventions. Extensive training is not required.

All relevant information in one place

For each individual process step, all relevant information such as documents, IT systems, standard chapters, risks and improvement approaches can be stored. This information is stored centrally in an SQL database.

Gain an overview of your processes

The transparency created enables a wide range of analyses that can be documented directly in the software. As a result, all optimization potentials of your operational processes are uncovered.

Flexible and expandable

With the help of the various add-on modules, such as the sycat IMS Portal or sycat MAM, the application can be extended and adapted to your needs as desired.

  • Simplest modeling by drag & drop
  • All processes with the relevant data are stored centrally in a database
  • Low training effort
  • Fast, clean modeling through predefined modeling conventions
  • Mapping of organizational structure and process organization in one representation
  • Linking of processes via process interfaces
  • Structure of a process hierarchy
  • Fully automated output of process contents as process flow description (prose text description)
  • Fully automated output of process characteristics (process profile)
  • Representation of the information flow within the process
  • Linking of standard documents with individual processes and steps - "No more cumbersome searching for documents".
  • Assignment of key figures to processes, functions and work steps
  • Deposit of IT systems
  • Deposit of standard requirements and chapters
  • Deposit of weak points with measures and responsibilities
  • Direct export into the sycat task manager
  • Risk assessment of the found vulnerabilities
  • Automatic creation of process maps with process interface overview for the representation of the interrelation of processes
  • Creation of responsibility matrices for measures and processes
  • Export to Microsoft Excel for further analysis
  • User import via Active Directory
  • Authorization concept: related to groups, persons and organizational units with read and/or write authorization
