Read about Promapp, a process mapping tool for continuous improvement at UC San Diego.

Log into Promapp (after completing training) to create simplified process maps with the users in mind.  UC San Diego is leveraging Promapp to capture current state processes campuswide.  Using this tool we can identify process improvement opportunities, increase process awareness, and support our staff. 

Benefits - How is this different from other tools?

  • With little or no experience, you can create effective and clear process maps. No more fumbling with boxes and diamonds.  You think and write in "bullets" and the tool makes the map! 
  • Maps automatically show links across UC San Diego systems.
  • Use common language and functional areas, to share the core of your process steps.
  • Easily upload and share documents within each map.
  • Share your maps with others and gather feedback, even if they don't have access to Promapp.
