We believe it is possible for SMEs to implement BPR in spite of the costs and resources that might be needed for it to be carried out effectively.
SMEs, especially those that have been in business for years should look into implementing BPR to cut costs and improve efficiency. They can consider a process-by-process approach to reduce the number of staff that will have to be diverted to work on their BPR implementation.
SMEs should not be put off by the costs that might be associated with BPR. It is possible to reengineer processes without a large outlay on investments. In other words, there can be cost savings without the need to make large sums of money available to a BPR project.
