Business Process Review (BPR)
The starting point for any project, our Business Process Review (BPR) combines industry expert knowledge with 20+ years of experience delivering mobile technology solutions. The BPR process gathers all key stakeholders in your business together to identify the Present Method of Operation (PMO) in an intense on-site workshop designed to identify how all relevant departments currently work together to deliver your product to your customers.
Drivers, Customer Support Reps (CSRs), Dispatchers, Management from all levels, and your Operations experts are interviewed and led in facilitated discussions aimed at uncovering the unique processes and standards your company relies on to maintain efficiency and delivery of your product to market.
Once the current PMO is identified for each element of the business, TouchStar’s industry and mobility experts will provide guidance for process improvement and generate a plan to migrate to the Future State of Operations, utilizing field and office-based applications to manage the data flow between all systems.
This information will then be used to tailor TouchStar’s integrated automation solutions to meet the specific needs and requirements of your business and develop our guaranteed ROI.

Change Management Consulting
An important, and yet sometimes neglected element of automation, is the development of clear business objectives, establishing precisely how they will be measured and fully understanding what post-automation processes are. Ensuring all the expected changes are made within the business to achieve automation goals requires disciplined change management and follow-through.
Our team can assist in developing a master “Change Management Plan” with established departmental actions and milestones. Building a unified vision of exactly what an automation initiative will mean to a business and what proactive steps are considered necessary will involve many stakeholders. Building consensus and multi-department buy-in throughout the organization is a vital process that we can help manage.
