The Need

Your organisation runs, creates data and makes decisions every minute of every day. Technology should easily support continuous, integrated and synchronised operational flow, create and store detailed data that reflect these operations in real-time and facilitate obtaining timely and reliable information to make the best decisions.

However, many enterprise software implementations are far from delivering.

Spending time, effort and money writing code to customise the software creates uncertainty, perpetuates old practices and creates obstacles for future evolution.

Building solutions around different modules or products that should be integrally connected creates data silos. This requires the development and execution of interfaces to share data between them.

Monthly closing procedures and infrastructure maintenance tasks disrupt continuous operation and force users to use spreadsheets and email in an attempt to alleviate software deficiencies.

Timely and reliable information is hard to build from scattered data, so decisions are made upon best guesstimates.

“Existing ERP systems do not have full capabilities to handle the more sophisticated data trends, analytic methods and algorithms that need to be used to provide the more advanced business intelligence and foresight that will be needed in the Industry 4.0 era.”

The solution was to create a truly systemic, continuously available and totally adaptive enterprise software, capable of solving the needs of any company without writing one single line of code. We were told “this is impossible” and we remembered Henry Ford used to say “nothing is impossible, just no one has done it yet”. So, we took the challenge.

Our research and development efforts led us to create a new paradigm in the world of enterprise software, the Enterprise Operating System (EOS) platform, created to improve productivity, increase profitability, and enhance wellbeing in your organisation and your team.

Our focus was the operation. We observed thousands of users doing their everyday work and documented which tasks were the same through every company, which were the variations, and, most important, which ways of doing things really made the difference between one organisation and another. We identified how we could help to improve their work and designed the technology to maximise their performance.

The key is the process. Every organisation is built around business processes and every process is built by individual interconnected transactions. Our most important goal is to allow every user to do every transaction at any time from anywhere directly on LOVIS EOS. This way, the data that reflects the event is created when the event is happening and by the person who knows exactly what is going on.

This required the development of an easy to use, fully configurable, continuously available, transactional and systemic enterprise software, able to reflect organisational reality in real-time and to evolve with your organisation.

Operational Disruption

“One of the greatest costs and risks for any digital transformation is operational disruption after go-live. This metric had the highest degree of consistency over the 1,000+ digital transformations studied.

Being unable to ship product or close the books are the two most common operational disruptions. This metric does not include other disruptions as employee frustration or short-term inefficiencies.

Of all companies in the study, 51% to 54% experienced a material operational disruption at go live. The duration of disruptions varied from a few weeks to several months. The costs of these disruptions increased the initial cost of the implementation from 50% to 300% of the cost to implement the transformation.

The software and integrator selected made very little difference on time and cost variations, and operational disruption.”
