How to implement work standardization in a company?
The adoption of certain norms and patterns in the daily work of a company defines its routine and allows it to maintain stability. With the support of appropriate systems and strategies, organizations can implement top level standardization, tailored to their individual needs and conditions.

What is standardization?

Standardization is a set of activities involving the design and implementation of procedures, schemes, and standards in an organization to ensure efficiency, consistency of processes, and the highest quality of work in each department.

It can cover any area of company activity, such as production, sales, customer service, and logistics.

Implementing standardization across the enterprise

Successful standardization in an organization depends on many different factors. The success of the process does not rely solely on the company’s people, board, size, structure, lines of business, or business strategy. The architecture and technology base, as well as the implementation team, also have an impact. The right software enables full integration of all the systems the organization has in place. This creates a single, unified workspace that provides users with all the information they need to perform their daily tasks. It also improves the way systems communicate with each other, allowing for quicker response to potential complications, Customer requests, departmental needs, or faster exchange of necessary data.

The software that perfectly streamlines the process of implementing standardization in a modern organization is SAP S/4HANA Cloud. This system provides a cloud-based, integrated, and intuitive working environment for companies. It improves the following areas:

  • pre-built business processes – provides pre-defined business processes aligned with industry best practices that organizations can customize to meet their unique needs;
  • automated processes – offers automation of company business processes, which protects them from potential errors or unnecessary steps; it also ensures compliance with appropriate rules and policies when performing specific tasks, thus ensuring the security of standardization;
  • unified platform – enables companies to create a single, unified platform consisting of integrated systems and areas, such as production, human resources, customer service, or logistics; this facilitates standardization across all levels of company operation;
  • centralized data – offers users access to an integrated, consistent, responsive, and centralized source of information available to any department and/or process, improving reporting and analysis and facilitating future business activities;
  • cloud availability – SAP S/4HANA enables companies to access the cloud to store, modify, secure, and process data, and to perform all activities in the cloud; companies do not need to invest in their own infrastructure, which results in significant savings, and they can access all the data they need from any mobile device in any location, increasing user satisfaction and efficiency.

Benefits of standardization

Standardization primarily leads organizations to unify the processes they have developed over time. Its purpose is to speed up the execution of planned operations and changes, thereby increasing the company’s efficiency. These activities also significantly increase the performance of the company and its employees. Structured communication between departments, improved data flow, and faster response to the needs of users and Customers also result in their increased satisfaction. In addition, effective standardization reduces the time needed to onboard new employees and helps organize this process, which indirectly affects the work of the entire organization. The faster and better trained the team, the more effective the business.

When considering improving the standardization of business processes, it is worth taking into account the management of the entire company. These operations, carried out on the basis of effective technological strategies and with the support of qualified experts, allow us to maintain the highest quality of provided services, constantly increase Customer and employee satisfaction, and thus the efficiency of the entire company and its financial profits.
