What is BPR?
During the Business Process Reengineering (BPR) exercise, UNIDO’s business processes were reviewed and analyzed from start to end, considering all functional areas involved.
Carrying out this exercise at the high- to medium-level and prior to the ERP implementation, enabled UNIDO to reduce the overall cost and implementation time frame.
The high- to medium-level BPR exercise for UNIDO core business/technical cooperation activities involved a large number of staff members from Headquarters and the field. Supported by the ERP system, the new business processes can be carried out irrespective whether the staff member is at Headquarters or the field. The details on the new business processes for all functional areas were expanded upon during the implementation of the ERP system.
