How we do it

Three step methodology

Sumeru's methodology is focused on driving business value to our client. The central component of our methodology is the definition of a Quantifiable Productivity Improvement Plan(Q-PiP) that shows current inefficiencies, how your profitability may be increased, how the productivity will be maximized and which organizational inefficiencies will be improved if the solution is implemented.

The 3-step methodology involves
1

Quantify - Define Q-PiP

  • Review business goals and priorities
  • Understand and document key pain points/challenges
  • Identify key performance indicators (KPIs) or success factors
  • Identify the areas of process improvement and efficiency
  • Quantify possible cost saving where possible
  • Analyze existing systems for technical feasibility and LOB integration
2

Implement Q-PiP - Achieve increased productivity and efficiency

  • Define the architecture of the solution
  • Establish the infrastructure required to support the solution
  • Automate workflows using SharePoint Server
  • Perform data consolidation as needed from multiple sources like excel, SQL etc.
  • Do ERP/LOB application integration to get access to real-time data using Microsoft SharePoint Server as needed
  • Periodic reviews with client to ensure solution implementation is on track
3

Assess - Measure and Optimize the solution to empower decision makers

  • Gain business insight by setting up mechanisms to monitor KPI's or success factors for the key pain areas as identified in Q-PiP
  • Centrally store reports & dashboards in a collaboration portal.
  • Optimize the solution for continuous productivity improvement
 

As a partner to our customer, our involvement varies based on the needs of our customers. Many customers have the vision of what they need, but need assistance in bridging the gap between vision and the solution. Some customers know their exact requirements and need our help in providing a technology solution to meet these requirements. Some need our assistance fully utilizing the technology that they have already invested in. We consistently strive to bring new ways to deliver bottom-line benefits to our customers and we measure our contributions by increased customer satisfaction and value delivered.
