CONTEXT

Companies evolutionary transformation

The progressive and overwhelming evolutionary transformation that companies of advanced industrialized countries are going through is, perhaps, the main cause of the crisis we have experienced in the latest decade. As a matter of fact, such transformation deeply changed the organizations’ distinguishing features from organizations that process materials to organization that organize ideas.

Thus, differently from the usual crisis, which is regularly followed by boom periods, we  faced a structural crisis and those who survived came out deeply changed.

Indeed, it is very difficult that low-value added productions can continue to survive in advanced industrialized countries (and high personnel costs)because they are strongly influenced by the economic competition.

This is the reason why companies unable to refocus on higher value added productions end up surrendering to the economic competition of the emerging countries which are facilitated, more than in the past, not only by low labour costs, but also by cost-effective costs for moving goods or raw materials, as a result of the globalization process.

CHALLENGES

Building a Social Enterprise Collaboration

By the way, the context is different for those organizations who have positioned or are positioning themselves on the high-value added production market. Those organizations need to re-structure themselves to maximize their value assets, outsourcing as much as possible all those aspects of the product lifecycle where they are less competitive.

In such a context, the challenge organizations have to face is the ability to convert into “value” the business model that lead/drive them to success.  This means making it efficient, effective and pervasively replicable; in one word, making it  “persistent”  regardless  the inevitable changes of  people and places.

Essentially, organizations should:

  • Transform the “volatile and immaterial” modus operandi into a real acceptable and repeatable “asset”,
  • Map the organizational ad operational strategies in workflows, incorporating the best operating modes (best practices),
  • Organize the know-how to be accessed in an effective way.

Getting it all done and operative implies the possibility of  having technological solutions able to connect people, expertise and information in a social-collaborative process extended to the entire corporate pipeline including customers, providers, partners and stakeholders of different types.

A new Social Enterprise Collaboration independent from the places and working modes.

ENABLING TECHNOLOGY

RuleDesigner pillars

RuleDesigner is a web enterprise collaborative platform for knowledge management as well as for process organization and automation.

Enterprise Social Collaboration has become one of the most important tool for creating and supporting competitive advantage. Indeed,  it broadens the company boarders and embraces  all the actors that, for different purposes, are involved in the company ecosystem:  internal users, customers, providers, collaborators, co-designers, etc.

In order to ensure a common business goal, a close cooperation with providers and stakeholders is necessary to structure sharing information, interaction processes and exchange of documents.

RuleDesigner technology incorporates this cross-cutting and global vision to business processes to support collaboration, knowledge management, process efficiency and exceeding the limits imposed by the traditional ERP, CRM, PLM systems and project management.

RuleDesigner is equipped with Robotic Process Automation (RPA) tools that have the scope of automating back-office processes. The system, appropriately configured, makes it possible to emulate the activities of a human resource and interact with existing applications, relieving staff from all the repetitive and routine tasks related to administrative processes, such as acquisition and data entry, controls, etc.

Among the advantages: double-digit reduction of the error rate in back-office processes, an extreme speeding up of the process lead time, the possibility of checking the progress through a log system that records process tasks performed as well as irregularities found.

These features make it an ideal tool to solve urgent problems concerning efficiency with a winning approach. By implementing quick win solutions, it allows organizations to quickly bring into operation the automation of processes, even those that involve the combined use of many applications.

In fact, robots can perform tasks involving the access and use of multiple systems and procedures (ERP systems, e-mail, spreadsheets, websites, etc …) and the execution of long sequences of activities.

RuleDesigner platform collects and distribute product and service assets from concept to implementation, with the possibility to follow their operability up over time.

An integrated approach to product and/or service lifecycle and related business processes including value chains, stakeholders, marketing, design, sales, quality and service.

RuleDesigner is endowed with a process Configurator that, besides configuring products, also acts as a framework able to drive existing application and govern the organization.

Thanks to RuleDesigner Configurator, it is possible to convert the corporate know how in a set of operational processes. Once organized and stored, such processes represent the “heart” of the company’s value, available at any time to all those who need to use those processes.

Having all of this within a single family of coherent and integrated products creates something alchemical, able of triggering an explosive mixture in the organization of the company’s activities.
