WHAT IS PROTOS?

Protos is a computer based software tool used to document, analyze, and enhance existing processes. Protos may not just be used for mapping and documenting processes but also for including performance indicators, proving compliance with legislation, company reorganization and many others.

Protos assists an organization to safeguard its intellectual capital by ensuring that all knowledge regarding processes and activities is recorded in detail. Without proper documentation, the only repository of this information is in the heads of the employees. Thus, losing an employee, temporarily or permanently, would not mean losing the know-how.

Protos is useful in the way that reports are easily generated. Reports can be generated in MS Word format or in HTML format
