With Olympe, augment your existing systems and leverage new technology to integrate heterogeneous data and get the visibility you need to improve your processes and reduce operations costs.
In this use case, the client is a European plant engineering group designing and manufacturing industrial equipment worldwide. Its main challenge was to overcome isolated outdated tools and software products –known as “silos”– and leverage automation technology to gain a competitive edge over the low-cost competition.
Follow the pace of innovation
The specific pain of our client was the cost of sending inspectors to customer sites around the world and the fact that the inspection process was outdated. The legacy field app used to inspect large industrial equipment had many limitations and poor connectivity with their other technologies.
Solution – Smart Automation for inspection processes
Collaborative inspection application
Together with the integrator of their choice, our client used Olympe to create a collaborative inspection app.
The solution would gather the information captured during on-site inspections and consolidate it on the company’s system.
Centralizing the collected data enables our client to improve its product roadmap andassociated processes.
To overcome the silos problem, using Olympe as a software editor makes company data and processes visible and available as “business bricks” in the client’s enterprise marketplace.
This way, teams can innovate efficiently by combining the enterprise bricks to create additional game-changing solutions.
Speed of development
Developing the solution with Olympe proved the unrivaled speed of development and business relevance at a low cost.
Olympe enabled our client and their business process owner to create an MVP inspection app in 17 days with a single developer’s help.
Initially estimated at 300+ development days, it took 120 days to develop the production project using Olympe. On top of that, teams achieved a more comprehensive scope than initially planned.
Finally, by sharing data across the company to enhance the existing products, the newly created app was a strong basis for further innovation.
Our client’s business process owner said that:
he felt we understood his problem and was excited about the results and speed of execution. Also, the R&D Director saw how his department would benefit from innovating and developing with Olympe globally.
