Successful cost improvement programs need organizational transparency, activity tracking, early warning, success highlights, best practice sharing & on-line scorecards.
Our software platform, QuantumLeap is designed especially to manage the implementation and progress of cost-improvement, restructuring and turnaround activities.
Management has full and immediate transparency of all ongoing actions, both by unit, function and category. Employees responsible for actual measures update their activities directly on-line.
As well as a reporting tool, this Intranet based system, provides project management functionality for the individual activities, including task sharing, progress updating, timeline and risk identification.
Employees worldwide can access this role-based easy-to-use system, to view and manage their own activities. Naturally, managers can see all activities in their own area of responsibility.
QuantumLeaps’ main business features are:
- Instant Status Information to Management
- A Structured Step-by-Step Approach to Entering / Managing Measures
- Full View of all Activities across Organization
- Early Warning of Problems
- Comparison of Success by Department / Business Unit
- Sharing Ideas & Common Measures across Units
While QuantumLeap requires minimal training, some minor adaptions for customers’ organization and business needs are usually required. The software uses standard Web 2.0 components and the business process is defined by Cost Improvement Consultants. It is installed very quickly, requiring a web server and database. Assuming the necessary conditions are available, implementation including adaption takes on average 5 working days.
QuantumLeap is usually installed at the customer location, but can be provided on a hosted model. We can provide on-going application support on request.
