Collaboration: It’s All in the Workflow


Today’s companies are aware that adopting, promoting, and reinforcing collaboration can have huge time, money, and efficiency benefits. But many organizations fall into the common trap of believing that the simple fact of having adopted collaboration applications will lead them to become a collaborative organization. Collaboration means working with others in an intellectual endeavour, and certainly a business process falls into this category.

A workflow can be defined as a progression of steps (tasks, events, interactions) that comprise a work process involving two or more persons and creating or adding value to the organization’s activities.  It is implied that the process involves communication between the stakeholders because their tasks are interdependent, whether they occur sequentially or in parallel.

SAP Run Better Tour: Unwired


My TEC colleague Aleksey Osintsev and I recently made our way to the last stop of the SAP Run Better Tour in Montreal to get a taste of what SAP was cooking up in terms of improvements and strategies for 2011. I was hoping for some developments regarding mobile technology and support. Did I get my fill? Let’s just say I was still feeling a bit peckish when I left. Here’s the lowdown on SAP’s

Development of an Internet Payment Processing System

Managing Customer Returns and RMAs


There are common and unique variations to returned material authorizations (RMAs) that can compound a company’s enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. Identifying RMA variations enables a company to determine what needs to be simplified and what needs to be modeled in an ERP system.

example authorization  Variations to this simple example may involve a replacement item, or the repair of the returned item. Additional variations in handling RMAs can quickly lead to complex business processes and to more complex ERP software functionality. Artificially complex functionality makes an ERP system more difficult to understand and implement. Identifying RMA variations in a given company provides a starting point for determining what needs to be simplified and what needs to be modeled in an ERP system. Each step Read More

Vertical Marketing--What Is A Vertical?


What is vertical marketing? Vertical marketing is product and promotion efforts targeted at specific industries. Many benefits are derived from vertical marketing. These include messages that are better received, credibility, marketing budgets that go farther, less competition, etc. A common mistake is the failure to understand the verticals you choose to target. The definition of a vertical is not what the vendor thinks; it is what the prospects think.

example authorization  a vertical. A good example is the market for manufacturing software. That market is usually subdivided into process and discrete. While this is meaningful from a product function point of view, it may not be very meaningful relative to marketing. End users do not think in terms of verticals. They do see themselves as a member of a group, and the definition of that group (see below) is what vendors need to identify as their vertical market. If you ask end users how they define their group, they might say Read More

The Why of Data Collection


Data collection systems work; however, they require a investment in technology. Before the investment can be justified, we need to understand why a data collection system may be preferable to people with clipboards.

An alternative example could include a selection of inventory for a shipment gained through a bar code reader on the forklift, and can be immediately used to update both the inventory and the order status. As an aside, when the need is termed real time , we should ask what that really means. It often means as soon as the person needs it , which could be either once a Read More

Acronyms Can Simplify Your Life, or Drive You Insane


Acronyms seem really convenient, at first. It’s great using ERP instead of enterprise resource planning, for example. You save precious time (not typing enterprise resource planning a million times) and there’s no way your reader won’t understand what ERP means, right? Well, for ERP this may be true, but all acronyms are not as tidy as they appear. What about BPM, for example? Does it

ToolsGroup-Statistics-based Supply Chain Planning


ToolsGroup continues to carve out a space for itself in supply chain. Not satisfied with being the last remaining independent multi-echelon inventory optimization (MEIO) vendor, ToolsGroup is pushing forward with broader supply chain capabilities centered around a core statistics-focused demand forecasting capability.

For example, if a vendor misses their revenue targets for a given period, a public company loses a percentage of its market capitalization under lowered expectations.

The next step is a scaled-back research and development agenda, meaning weakened and less frequent upgrades for clients, Read More

CRM and BPM: “We Goes Together Like Peas and Carrots”


In 2009, I attended two Gartner Summit events: the Gartner Business Process Management (BPM) Summit in March in San Diego; and Gartner Customer Relationship Management (CRM) Summit in September in Scottsdale. I not only saw a number of same vendors at both events, but both events also had many similar themes, such as customer service, workflow automation, business processes

The customer calls into the contact center, which confirms the customer order, thereby touching the provisioning system. Then, the agent Read More

Maintenance Tips For Improved Profits: Creating the Business Case to Invest in Automation


Does it really make sense to spend money to save money? The answer may surprise you when it comes to maintenance of large capital assets including Facilities, Fleet, Plant Equipment and yes, even computers. It makes even more sense when you consider that today more and more companies are adding a new line item in their financial statements called "Deferred Maintenance Revenue Write Down". A lack of preventive maintenance affects the shareholders of all companies due to aging assets and reactive maintenance practices. A complete preventive maintenance program consisting of better business practices and a simple tool such as a Computerized Maintenance Management Software (CMMS) or Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) package can streamline the process and result in immediate savings in both time and money. So how do you justify the initial investment and where can the cost savings be seen across the enterprise?
