Some examples of Digital Transformation

MTS ERP Evolution

A major upgrade of the MTS ERP (Office Manager) was recently completed. This has led to several important digital enhancement that have greatly increased team productivity. Salary slips are sent by email, document access & scanning has been optimized. Digital Workflow process as massively decrease the printing volume. User profiling has also improved the security of access to sensitive information’s. The digitalization of work sheets (use of smartphones by our field technicians) is also in progress and will enable administrative assistants to be relieved of their workload.

Skills Management

The centralized Skills Management of SPIE ICS allows top management to quickly get strategic information on the number and level of excellence of our employees by specialization. Team leaders use the solution for evaluating the skills of their team and adapt the training plan. Employee can only access to the own skills matrix. The ServiceNow Operation platform has been selected to allow an automatic matching of skills with the required tasks (for troubleshooting in particular) to simplify and speed up the dispatching.

Data Business Model

The acquisition and analysis of real-time data and data flows from various systems provide insights to our management for faster decisions. Often these data are not available in a uniform form, instead a wide range of data are recorded, such as statistics, measured values or log files. With the help of the Power BI platform, all information and data obtained can be processed and placed in context sometimes with other data.

The first project was measurements of cars occupation with cameras of a parking by customer Ville de Lausanne and dashboarding of purchasing orders from SPIE MTS. Power BI enables to visualize and analyze all this information with simple queries in the form of comprehensive dashboards
