StraightForward Services

As BPM professionals, we know how limited your time can be and how challenging meeting the day to day demands are. We developed STRAIGHTFORWARD TOOLS to provide a low cost, practical set of tools for real world use. To augment these tools, we developed several affordable and practical workshops and services to help kick-start your initiatives.  All packaged services (see below) are designed to produce specific deliverables.
