SOME PEOPLE LIKE PAPER COPIES...
The system is completely web-based, but sometimes it is nice to have a printable document with your favorite process description. Therefore, Callis Guide is capable of generating nice looking process description PDF-files.
And of course, the PDF-files includes the generated images, overview tables, and the description itself together with a nice index, and everything is consistent and clickable.

WHAT SHOULD BE READY WHEN?
MODEL YOUR BUSINESS PROCESSES
With Guide you can model and document business processes for your specific domain, whether it is Medico, Banking, Automotive, or Defence.
Our customers are modelling process not only covering project management and product development, but also the parts of their businesses addressing e.g. sales, management, acquisition, and operations.
Using Guide one consistent and accessible process model is achievable.
READY, SET, GO!
Guide comes ready-to-use. The configuration of the tool, the documentation, and the examples are consistent and tuned to make starting up easy.
The setup includes a fit-for-purpose meta-model configuration including e.g. RASIC relations between roles and tasks, Discipline structure, EITVOX structure of tasks etc.
Also, example content including all common modelling patterns is included. This eases the learning curve and prevents most “beginner´s errors.
ENSURE CONSISTENCY AND INTEGRITY
As you model your processes, consistency and integrity across all process elements and text can be checked with a click.
Also, when deleting an element, Guide automatically warns about expected “dangling references”, even in free text blocks. This motivates constructive “authoring behaviour” creating high quality process descriptions with no “loose ends”.
Modeling is easy, intuitive, and web based. When a element is saved, the system rebuilds all affected overviews and components, and the result can be browsed immediately.
CREATE SPECIALIZED ILLUSTRATIONS!
Use the Guide MS Visio AddIn to link and upload Visio drawings directly into Guide. This is useful when you would like to supplement the automatically generated process illustrations.
MANAGE PROCESS COMPLIANCE
Guide helps maintaining mappings between your process set(s) and various standards and models e.g. CMMI, Automotive SPICE, ISO 33000 process models, ISO 9001, ISO 26262, FDA requirements, COBIT or even your own organizational requirements sets.
Cross references can be displayed in the system, exported into excel, or generate a dedicated output for CMMI Appraisals (PIID Templates)Standards and models are easily created using our dedicated add-in for Excel.
