Archer provides the three core applications (Company, Division and Business Unit) to capture an organisation’s business hierarchy . Customers with more complex organisational structures may require additional application levels at the top, the bottom, or somewhere in the middle. There may also be a need to capture multiple alternative hierarchies (i.e. regions, markets and functions) and associate objects (like risks and controls) to various levels of the hierarchy.

The Bowmen Group Organisational Entities App-Pack provides an extremely flexible and easy-to-manage solution for Archer customers that are seeking:

  • Greater flexibility in the setup and maintenance of their business hierarchy

  • Easier maintenance of multiple types of hierarchies

  • Additional application levels beyond the three core levels – Company, Division, Business Unit – provided by Archer out of the box,

  • Easy integration with a source-of-truth for business hierarchy content

Benefits of this offering include: 

  • The ability to manage all business hierarchy content with one single-leveled On-Demand Application
  • Easy and flexible business hierarchy setup and maintenance 

  • Powerful reporting capabilities
