About TaskMap

TaskMap® was invented by Harvard Computing Group (HCG), a software and consulting firm that assists clients with understanding and implementing business process solutions. The team at HCG provides a unique mix of technical skills, marketing savvy, and senior management experience, all of which contributed to the design of TaskMap. 

TaskMap allows anyone to document existing processes and then use the process maps to identify areas for improvement. TaskMap can also be used to design future-state processes because it supports collaboration and facilitates the design of what’s needed to work more effectively in the future. In both cases, the simple layout and intuitive design of TaskMap accelerate knowledge transfer and enable organizations to leverage internal expertise. 

Harvard Computing Group supports TaskMap customers with training and consulting services.
