OVERVIEW – Industry 4.0
It is a complicated transformation process, non only because it involves digital technologies and tools but also because of change management: when the company is routinely managed in a certain way, any change can be seen as threatening. Digitalizing means modifying processes and therefore the structure of the business. According to our experience, information and document management within a firm has a cost close to 15% of total expenses: maximize efficiency and value in this area of interest is therefore of utmost importance. Unfortunately, it is difficult to realize and quantify the loss that comes from the non-digitalization of processes: for instance, just by accessing digital information through a simple research, the marketing department could offer new services to clients and thus improve profit. It also true that nowadays this is a minor obstacle, since today digitalization, in terms of costs and time, is very fast and issues related to safety and information management have been addressed.

In a world where information is constantly digitalized, it is inevitable to adopt Document and Workflow Management tools. What we do is help clients plan the change going from “as is” to “to be”: there is no advantage in automating the process without changing it! We acquired a profound knowledge of our clients’ business processes, besides a great “vertical” competence in the different industries.
Every day we assist companies that decide to undergo a digital transformation process. Manufacturing, just like other fields, has the necessity of managing digital information; its peculiarities are linked to deadlines, costs and the possibility to improve relationships with final clients. Information has indeed an “expiry date” and has to be used when it creates the opportunity to provide the client with a service. It is a particularly competitive world that needs to be guided throughout the process of digital transformation. For this reason our assistance does not only cover digitalization, storage and access to documents but it also makes sure that they are consistent with our clients’ strategies.
An efficient information management strategy can contribute to cost reduction, corporate going concern and help with conformity, quality control and risk reduction. We especially talk about control of the vital cycle of information – linked to core business processes – to refer to a segment of the scope on the manufacturing field.
