Are you using flowcharts to map your business processes?

Flowcharts are too complex. You can’t run them. Nobody even looks at them. We need to stop using flowcharts to document processes. See why below.

Flowcharts     vs.     Tallyfy

Nice to look at. Then what?

This is a neat visual of a purchase order process. In real-life, it’s total chaos – emails and documents all over the place. If there’s 30 P.O’s running right – nobody knows who’s doing what and when.

Tallyfy

Don’t just look at it – run it

Launch a process on Tallyfy and track every handover, between every person, in real-time. You can collect information in a clear and structured way. Need to chat? Use in-task comments.

Massive. Heavy. Cumbersome

Most processes in a business don’t even need flowcharts. They can be described in checklist format – which works much better on phones and tablets. Why complicate life and make it painful?

Tallyfy

Checklists with if this then that rules

For the (rare) process that isn’t a straight list – you get all the branching, conditions and power you need. Use powerful “if this then that rules” on tasks – doing everything flowcharts do.

The maker is proud. Others are confused.

You’re not just making a flowchart for yourself – it’s for others. Click on the image below. Whoever made it must feel really smart. But honestly – do you understand it? More complex = more useless.

Tallyfy

Everyone can make a process

With Tallyfy – everyone can define and improve a process in checklist format. You don’t need to go on a 10-week training course or “talk process language” or battle with giant visuals.

Critical details are missing

If you can only see the task title (and maybe – the assignee) – how do you actually do the task in real-life? What form fields and data do you collect on each step? What’s the deadline for each step?

Tallyfy

See the information you actually need

Enrich descriptions in your steps with text, photos, videos, assignees, deadlines, form fields, rules and more. It’s not just a random box connected to another random box – by a line.

Flowcharts can’t handle variations

Imagine you have 8 decisions you can make. Are you seriously going to draw 8 lines to 8 boxes? Now imagine 25 possible decisions after a step. See how ridiculous and painful this is?

Tallyfy

Deal with infinite variations

By using conversation and blocking comments – Tallyfy helps you deal with infinite variations and branches for decision-making. You can handle real-life scenarios that nobody ever imagined!

MS Word or Google Docs don’t work

You might think that just using MS Word or Google Docs is the answer to flowchart pain. The right tool for documenting processes is critically important. Does the experience below look ideal?

Tallyfy

Replace flowcharts and word processors

If you just want to document processes and not actually “run” them, Tallyfy Docs is your entry-level solution that offers a huge set of advantages over using Microsoft Word and Google Docs.

Beautiful client experiences

Tallyfy gives you unlimited, free assignment of tasks and forms to automate data collection from outside clients. They see your custom branding and they get "one link for life" that requires no signup or login.

Everyone must complete

Efficient teamwork requires a simple way to automate accountability. If 4 people are assigned - all 4 need to complete the task. Eliminate the stress of back-and-forth chats and emails to achieve consensus.

This is not another comment

Commenting is great, until you're buried in an ocean of hundreds of random comments - and you have no idea what's actually important and what's noise. Report an issue to segment your chats beautifully.

If this - then that

So many tasks are "Not applicable". Automate decisions to prevent mistakes. Reduce long, irrelevant lists into short, relevant tasks. Use rules to hide and show tasks. Make workflows amazingly clear.

Structured fields

Collecting information via chat, email or documents is a mess - you get a jumbled pile of responses in random formats. Structured form fields in Tallyfy formalize responses and make data usable and organized.

Approve / Reject

Make decisions so easy that it literally takes one click to move on. Save a ton of wasted time and prevent uncertainty and stress at work.
