How Vynova and Smurfit Kappa realised a strong ROI by digitising their information flows and collaboration
Until today, employees have been struggling to work efficiently and qualitatively on information in and outside their organisation, despite best in class platforms like SAP-ERP to process key financial & operational data and Microsoft Office 365 for collaboration on documents.
Both internally, in their decision making with other departments, as well as in the communication with suppliers and customers, they are bound too much to paperwork, data exports in Excel, copying documents in different versions and loads of e-mails to get the necessary information flowing across. Hence also lacking digitised process data, the necessary foundation for proper BI reporting to gain & share insights.
The step forward lies in realising a truly integrated Digital Workplace, where information flows automatically and bi-directionally between all IT information sources. Your employees and external partners are turned into real-time connected collaboration workers, using one interface to get the right data, information and documents, pushed to them at the right time and in the right business context.
On Tuesday November 26 and Wednesday November 27, Devoteam and its product partner Ometa will bring their customers Vynova and Smurfit Kappa on stage to testify about the benefits and strong ROI they have realised with a Microsoft Office 365 truly integrated Digital Workplace.
Vynova will share how they achieved initial savings from digitising their Customer Services, and how the BI insights on that digitised process collaboration enabled them for a next step in Lean Optimisation. Other cases will be highlighted like the automation of their REACH compliancy. The project is also a reference for the decommissioning of legacy Lotus Notes applications for the better. Watch the video below to get a preview.
Smurfit Kappa will show how can you meet customers’ expectation by giving them a real-time view on your ERP on stock, orders and financials. Communication with customers is streamlined both internally and externally by avoiding e-mail chains and phone calls.
On November 26, Smurfit Kappa and Ometa will host the event at the Smurfit Kappa site of Oosterhout, Netherlands with an optional factory visit. Vynova will tell their story as well. Visit the Ometa event page for more information and to register.
