ServiceNow Innovation Ensures Workforce Safety Wit

We care deeply about our people. Empathy and consideration are ServiceNow's core values, as are many other companies around the world. COVID-19's impact on individuals and families does not diminish or disappear when we return to our workplaces. Some employees might not return to work in the future due to their circumstances.

Our efforts to return to work include two priority areas. The first, team preparation, means that we find our employees where they are, with empathy and compassion, given their circumstances as a result of COVID-19. The second, workplace preparation, focuses on preparing and managing our physical workplaces, with many requirements and restrictions to ensure safety.

ServiceNow recently launched four apps for the Safe Workplace Suite, based on real-time feedback around the world, as they continue to return to workplace planning and activation.

ServiceNow Safe Workplace Suite Includes

Employee Readiness Surveys:

The Employee Readiness Survey application allows companies to assess and recognize employees' willingness to return to their office or physical workplace, through a series of surveys with a set of queries and recording employee responses. Based on survey responses, companies can formulate the right course of action to gain employee confidence and get them back to work smoothly.

Let‘s take a brief survey: how much has the COVID-19 pandemic affected your organization?

A) Drastically
B) Majorly
C) Greatly
D) All of the above

No business has escaped the impact of coronavirus, especially those that rely on supply chains—physical or otherwise. Many products and services suffer from low demand, such as cars and hotels. Other companies struggle to keep up with severely increased demand—good luck finding toilet paper on store shelves. But through diligent planning and smart use of technology, it‘s possible to reduce the bumps in the supply chain and find solutions that will maximize efficiency and success.

“We’ll never get back to the normal we knew before COVID-19,“ says Tracy Warren, Manager of Delivery & PMO at Katalyst Technologies. “But we’ll settle into new ways of getting things done.“

Take Advantage of IoT

The Internet of Things has connected processes in seamless and ultimately effortless ways for companies and consumers alike. If you‘re one of those businesses experiencing a dramatic shift in demand in either direction, IoT technology can effectively manage inventory and monitor equipment. If you‘re facing a sharp uptick in demand, predictive maintenance techniques will be majorly beneficial in keeping up.

Katalyst Technologies recently reported on the rise of e-commerce as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, but the sheer extent of the surge has surprised even us. According to Adobe and Forbes, these past few months have escalated industry growth an estimated four to six years. The $82.5 billion spent online in May marked a 77% increase over last year, with the state of Connecticut seeing a whopping 99% boost.

On the downside, however, with more e-commerce sales come more dissatisfied customers. 25% of people who have shopped online in the last three months say that they’ve had a negative experience. Clearly, there is room for improvement. A better order management system (OMS) such as Celero could be just what your organization needs.

What is an OMS?

An OMS is effectively a one-stop-shop for an e-commerce business’s functions: tracking sales and inventory, managing orders, ensuring security, and collecting data. What the customer experiences as the simple, streamlined process of placing an order is actually an intricate series of behind-the-scenes operations working step by step to flow efficiently.

A customer makes their way towards an e-commerce site, browses the selection of products, adds an item to their cart, and places the order. They can choose a payment method and shipping speed, and their order is placed. Especially with mobile ordering, all of this can be done in the span of about 30 seconds. Meanwhile, internally, the OMS is working on updating inventory and notifying users of their cart status. Furthermore, it is also processing the payment, informing the appropriate delivery company, and preparing to track information and status updates that the customer can access as they wait for their order to arrive. This process must be all be handled with encryption to protect sensitive information. That’s a lot to handle in just a couple of clicks!

Why It’s Necessary

With so many consumers turning to e-commerce now, an effective and easy and secure sales system is necessary to keep up with competitors. But it also makes things better for customers and employees by removing any unwelcome surprises from the order process. What happens if your site is not correctly integrated to manage inventory, and a customer orders a product that is out of stock? You’ve probably lost that customer for life. An OMS will not only make sure that no customer deals with the bait and switch of unassumingly ordering an out of stock item, but can also handle predictive analytics that prevents it from going out of stock in the first place.

If you have multiple warehouses, an OMS can properly balance orders based on priority and item allocation. If you have a brick and mortar location, it can indicate available physical stock. Operating without an efficient OMS will lead to unnecessary complications and stress for customers and employees alike.

How to Choose Your OMS

Depending on your organization’s needs, there are a number of things to consider when selecting an OMS. The experts at Katalyst are ready to assist you in implementing the best solution for your business.

Site integration. If you have an existing website, you will likely want to select an OMS that can complement it, rather than operate separately. Celero can be easily integrated with Shopify, Magento, Quickbooks, ShipStation, and many other leading industry products.

When you’re exploring new OMS solutions, it’s probably because you hope to grow your business. Not all systems are equipped to handle larger loads, so it’s important to select one that can accommodate your organization’s needs, now and in the future.

Customer functionality. The idea of opening an e-commerce site that allows servicing customers all over the world is exciting but also presents challenges. If your OMS is optimized to account for different currencies and languages, as well as determining the best global shipping strategies, it will make the process much smoother.

An effective OMS is the key to a strong e-commerce presence. Now is the time to scale your operations—and Katalyst can help.

SAP is regarded as one of the most comprehensive and secure SaaS options available, but in light of necessary cost-cutting measures, optimizing SAP systems is seen as an ideal way to save money. The good news is that there are several viable options to achieve that. The bad news is that’s because your organization has probably not been using SAP effectively for a variety of reasons:

Most SAP solutions are not designed with minimizing operational costs in mind. When SAP is first implemented, businesses want to take advantage of its amazing features. In doing so, they may initiate projects and processes that wouldn’t have otherwise gotten off the ground.

Some functions are rarely or only partially used. Not only are these features superfluous, but they require more support, both on a user level and while updating software.

>Companies acquire more licenses than necessary. It’s important to monitor who in your organization actually needs access to SAP, and to what level (Professional vs. Limited Professional vs. Self-Service).

Your SAP is not up to date. This could be a result of either a lack of updates that limit function capability or a lack of review of which functions you actually need in your operations.
One of the biggest cost concerns with SAP, though, is in its architecture. Many organizations incorporated SAP in the days before cloud computing was a realistic option. They still may be relying on these antiquated legacy systems when transitioning to a cloud-based environment will both save money and allow a more convenient, adaptable workflow.

There are several different options for how to make the transition to a cloud infrastructure, and fortunately the experts at Katalyst are available to help you in the process. Migrating to the cloud is significantly less expensive than investing in new hardware, and depending on where you are in your service contract, now could be the right time to look into making the change.

The Benefits of Cloud-Based Infrastructure for SAP

Aside from hardware purchasing and maintenance, there are several ways in which the cloud approach is beneficial for your business’s bottom line.

Pay per use pricing. Using this structure, you only pay for environments when you actually need them (e.g. not overnight or when not in use).

Disaster recovery. Disaster recovery systems are flexible in that they only require full capacity of resources in the event of a system failure or outage. A dedicated physical system is probably excessive; cloud storage is more advantageous.

Archiving. Many companies have never implemented comprehensive archiving procedures, requiring more storage space. Adjusting accessibility could lead to significant savings.

Security. A perceived lack of data security is one of the top reasons why organizations remain hesitant to forgo legacy systems. However, cloud services have proven to be a protective, manageable solution for companies at small and large scales.

Though it may be challenging to change practices, now is the time to explore solutions that will save money and ready your organization for the challenges ahead. As always, Katalyst is here to help. Contact us today!

The retail landscape is constantly evolving, as style is redefined, and what constitutes cutting edge technology one day is obsolete the next. Katalyst has previously explored some of the more recent trends in retail and took a deeper dive into how brick and mortar stores can emphasize the value of coolness over commodity. But one of the underlying principles of modern branding practices was adopted by, of all things, a grunge band nearly 30 years ago.

When Pearl Jam released their triumphant debut album Ten in 1991, instant classic singles such as “Jeremy” and “Even Flow” made it clear that the band would leave a major footprint on the 90s rock scene. But what nobody could have predicted was how the group’s forward-thinking fan-friendly “Ten Club” would ultimately serve as a prime example for finessing customer relationships. Initially little more than an average fan club—think newsletters and Christmastime singles in the mail—the Ten Club morphed into something that transcended transaction. Determined to understand its fans’ needs and wishes, Pearl Jam refocused on direct interaction and rewarding fan loyalty with top-tier tickets at lower-deck prices. The strategy became a key factor in the band’s popularity and longevity, a lesson for retailers across all industries: the best way to build a brand is to know who you are selling to.

“Successful businesses understand their product or service is about more than the transaction; they are in the relationship business,” says Paige Arnof-Fenn, founder and CEO of global marketing and branding firm Mavens & Moguls. “People connect with brands they know, like, and trust.” Arnof-Fenn emphasizes the importance of winning customers over early, who will then be likely to stay loyal long-term, using the example of a teen looking for an acne cream. If that product works for her, she’s likely to turn to that brand when she needs moisturizer and other cosmetics. “Once you build a trusted relationship, you have a competitive advantage to keep them from looking elsewhere,” she says.

Building the Relationship with Data

Companies can access customer data through a variety of ways—sales, surveys, even coffee machines. They can subsequently use that data—and obtain more—to grow relationships with individual customers by offering personalized deals. This sort of quid pro quo is increasingly necessary, as consumers now have more power than ever in offering and rescinding their personal data, and they don’t want to give it without getting something in return.

“The job of data is to be a support point to accelerate the sales cycle,” says Arnof-Fenn. “It is all about your target audience and what motivates them to purchase.” Companies that use their data to enhance the customer experience will see surefire gains, as 70% of consumers say they are more likely to be loyal to brands that treat them with consistently high quality. (That same survey indicates that 59% of customers value personalization.)

Products like CeleroERP will help your organization manage its data and find solutions. Contact our experts for guidance on how you can enhance your enterprise with Katalyst services.

The Power of Social Media

Perhaps the biggest catalyst in creating a two-way conversation between consumers and retailers is the emergence of social media. This power shift has led to a sort of public customer service through Facebook and Twitter. Still, savvy brands have also taken advantage of the opportunity to earn loyalty and even establish “friendships” with their users. That could be more vital than ever during the pandemic.

“I predict the most trusted leaders and brands will have a big competitive advantage in the new normal that evolves in a post-corona world,” says Arnof-Fenn. “Employees, customers, and clients will remember who treated them well during the crisis, and they will be rewarded with loyalty from earning that trust during the bad times. The current crisis has provided a stage for brands and business leaders to rise to the occasion.”

However, while it may be the best option for companies, given the current circumstances, Arnof-Fenn warns that nothing will ever eclipse a more personal connection. “Technology helps advance the conversation, but it will never replace the human interaction that builds trust over time,” she says. “My tip is to disconnect from technology and focus on cultivating human, face-to-face relationships when social distancing is over.”

Whatever strategy your organization chooses to focus on, putting customers first is the key to growth and success.

Supply-Chain-Management-And-Additive-Manufacturing

Even the most influential supply chain has some weak joints. Perhaps yours is focused on the upstream, with small manufacturers dealing with quality control issues, or downstream, with retailers struggling to make products available to customers on time. In either case, you can strengthen these belts or forge alternatives using additive manufacturing.

Supply chain management prospects

In the industrial world, additive manufacturing has an impact in several sectors, from logistics to healthcare, from space to consumer. This necessarily has consequences for the supply chains of brands that use AM. In fact, it can provide many quantifiable benefits for supply chain management and operation. All the advantages, from simplifying processes to reducing bottlenecks and reducing costs, are a separate feature. We are here to summarize how supply chain management and additive manufacturing can work hand-in-hand.

How Supply Chain Management Is Coping With Effective Additive Manufacturing?

Lockheed Martin recently demonstrated additive manufacturing's ability to reduce the hardware input required to manufacture aerospace components significantly. By using parts made of high-quality materials, such as titanium alloys, the use of Lockheed AM has reduced the purchase rate for flying, the relationship between the material received and the final output of the parts.

The process of developing additive manufacturing at Rolls-Royce challenged many of the typical assumptions of supplier involvement in the development of new technologies. Unlike the standard buyer process that provides suppliers with a predefined design specification, additive manufacturing suppliers have taken the lead in component design due to their in-depth knowledge of technology.

Rolls-Royce expects additive production to produce 85% less waste compared to standard smelting and forging methods, with closed-loop processes capturing all waste for quick reuse. Thanks to additive manufacturing, Rolls-Royce is also able to produce closer to its largest customers, Boeing and Airbus, which reduces lead times and pipeline stocks. Local production reduces the company's exposure to supply chain risks, such as trade wars, political upheavals, and natural disasters that can prevent the flow of subcomponents. Rolls-Royce's investment in additive manufacturing has a transformative effect on the supply chain, bringing production closer to its customers and significantly reducing supply chain costs.

Ways Supply Chain Management Is Beneficial For The Manufacturing Process

- Reduced material input for lean production
- Simplified production processes and reduce costs
- Less risk of developing an emergency plan
- Improved process flexibility by responding to demand more quickly
- Redesigned supply chain networks into decentralized and distributed production networks
- Reduced the capital cost of entering new markets

The ground zero update,

The slumping economic effects are beginning to be felt, and many economists predict a profound collapse for an untold duration. While some supply chains are incredibly complicated to chase, for supply chain planners, one pitfall to avoid to continue is the dynamic known as inventory bounce.

It is also time for the supply chain to strengthen and contribute. One company solved a lack of rescue ventilator parts in Italy using 3D printing and making it available during the day. This explains the role of additive manufacturing in the supply chain.

Fashion and accessories brands like Coty, LVMH, L'Oréal, and others have stepped up and reorganized the perfume and hair gel production facilities to produce a hand sanitizer.

Supply chains have unique capacity and adaptability, although the challenges are far from over. But the result could be fundamental changes, and a whole range of managers and supervisors would rethink global supply models and dependencies.

Katalyst Technologies is one of the pioneering supply chain consulting partner. Its solution offering includes CeleroERP and CeleroWMS that are best suited for any manufacturing operation and effective business planning.

Chatbots have come a long way since the natural language processing program ELIZA debuted over 50 years ago. Designed to simulate a psychotherapist, ELIZA was soon followed by PARRY, a program inexplicably modeled after a schizophrenic, and the eventual, inevitable “CyberLover” bot that flirts its way into stealing identities. (Hey, we get it. Sometimes swiping on Bumble gets tedious.)

Somewhere in between falls the customer service chatbot, a simple yet effective piece of AI that delivers convenience for companies and consumers alike. Offering assistance at all times of the day, organizations can allocate resources elsewhere, and customers are spared frustrating wait times and inefficiencies.

What Makes a Good Chatbot?

There are two keys to building a chatbot that works. It must have a dedicated purpose, and it must be transparent. Those may sound fairly obvious, but what companies fail to realize is how much those go hand in hand.

“The reason why people feel like chatbots like Alexa or Google Home and stuff like that are not very personal is because they are built to do everything,” declares Alex Debecker, CMO of Ubisend. “You can ask it about Everest. You can ask it [to play] a song. You can ask it about a job. You can ask about a TV show, anything you want in the whole world, basically, at your fingertips or your lips.”

You may be asking yourself, “Wait a minute. Don’t people love Alexa?” That’s true, but that sort of technology is marketed around its sheer inexhaustible scale of knowledge. A customer service chatbot, though, is designed to replace a specific human interaction with which we are all familiar. Departing too far from that expectation is off-putting. With that said, it’s also essential to be upfront that the customer is in fact dealing with AI. “We try really hard to make it obvious that you’re actually talking to a chatbot,” says Debecker. “The very first message, we always say, ‘Hi, I’m a chatbot, and I’m here to help you on X-Y-Z.’”

EditGenie: A User-Oriented Chatbot

When Nixon Xavier, Vice President of Innovation at Katalyst Technologies, and his team developed a chatbot for EditGenie three years ago, he knew they needed to focus on the end-user. Naturally, they started by analyzing author feedback. “We get all these questions [like], ‘How do I do this? How do I do that?’ so we started [with] that as our base,” says Xavier. “What are the key challenges faced by the customer, and how can we make EditGenie’s chatbot more friendly and helpful to answer their questions?”

They began by covering simple, common concerns like text formatting and capitalization. When the chatbot was unable to resolve the customer’s issue, they realized areas in which the chatbot fell short. As those became apparent, they educated the chatbot further, while still providing the option for human help.

“Sometimes what happens in the user experience is the chatbot is trying to solve the problem without knowing what the problem is,” says Xavier. “We don’t take chances if it goes wrong on the first attempt. We take that and further it to the next route, an escalation server. Our support team can jump in at this stage and work directly with the user.” The innovation team at Katalyst is ready to assist you in creating and implementing chatbots into your own software and services.

Birth of a Chatbot

“When we first build a chatbot, its knowledge is limited,” says Joe Dixon, CTO of Ubisend. “In the early stages of its life, we aid learning by monitoring the conversations it has and manually correcting the cases where it hasn’t responded correctly.” Programmers must build the chatbot around the most common and practical customer concerns—things that can be easily resolved virtually. Once it operates more independently, users can then give feedback that indicates how helpful and accurate the chatbot was, and that educates it further. Subsequently, the chatbot can successfully interact with more customers and solve more problems.

For his part, Debecker doesn’t think there any customer service scenarios that a chatbot won’t improve. “If you call 911 you don’t want a chatbot answering your question,” he says. “When it comes to asking about a parcel, and all that sort of stuff, that that’s a lot less emergency-related.” There is a caveat, however. Not every customer will want to interact with a chatbot. “If your problem is really, really complex, and you really just want to explain it to someone, there should always be an [option] for the user to talk to an actual human.”

As for the rest of us, we hear CyberLover is single and ready to mingle. (Katalyst Technologies Inc is not responsible for any data theft or heartbreak.)

Advantages-of-Hybrid-Cloud-Computing-over-Public-a

As they say, we should always move towards betterment. Though the concept of cloud computing came into limelight in 2006, companies like Microsoft, IBM, Oracle, and Google launched their respective cloud services only after 2010. As public clouds got popular, businesses started raising concerns about security as they wanted to keep highly sensitive data behind the firewalls, thus finding a legitimate reason to support private clouds. However, this was not the end of the story. Private clouds came to rescue as they offer high-end data security, but cost an arm and a leg to businesses.

So, where did the solution lie?

The providers and adopters shifted their focus to Hybrid Clouds to find a solution.

According to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), a hybrid cloud is the composition of at least one private cloud and at least one public cloud. The most common form of hybrid cloud can be seen where companies develop a private cloud environment and take services from a public cloud provider to create a seamless connection between the two. Statistics show that the global hybrid cloud market is expected to reach 91.74 billion USD by 2021.

Why Hybrid Clouds?

With economic uncertainty and volatility, the need for businesses to remain responsive and agile has risen drastically. Sustenance is under threat if companies fail to respond to market changes and ever-evolving consumer demands. Hybrid cloud can be seen as a win-win solution that permits companies to remain cost-efficient by making optimal use of in-house infrastructure. At the same time, they capitalize on new business opportunities by moving the particular workload to the public cloud environment. A hybrid cloud is an optimum balance of on-premise cloud technology and off-premise public cloud service that can vary from businesses to businesses. Thus, it is never a one-size-fits-all solution.

Hybrid clouds follow a unique approach that ensures that both models remain as individual entities bounded by technologies while enabling data and application portability in a highly secured environment. A hybrid environment is like taking advantage of both worlds.

Hybrid cloud computing supports SaaS (Software-as-a-Service), IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service) and PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) delivery models. Hybrid clouds offer IaaS portability and PaaS and SaaS interconnection and application portability.

Let’s see the advantages of hybrid clouds:

Security: Hybrid clouds lead when it comes to safety. The enterprises can quickly deploy the best security practices into the public cloud to ensure data encryption and other security features. They can maintain compliance and privacy requirements in the public cloud as they do for private clouds. The security is intact even with integration is carried out with external enterprise management systems.

Interoperability: The portability of applications is seamless in a hybrid environment. The capability to transfer data, applications, programs, across heterogeneous clouds is the source of strategic advantage for enterprises. The elastic and scalable storage supported by two clouds yields efficiency and agility to the enterprise functions. Hybrid clouds render the capability to run workloads on highly compatible virtualized platforms, thus enhancing the performance and capacity management of the system.

Interconnectivity: Again, the smooth communication between two coexisting environments is a boon for companies facilitating the fast movement of virtual machines and other data.

Scalability: Hybrid clouds extend incredible support to businesses at the time of peak or no workloads. They can easily switch the load and scale up their business processes at the time of unpredictable demands. The management of applications across the cloud environment is not challenging as it offers complete visibility. Organizations can run mission-critical applications on private cloud whereas can employ public cloud for testing and development.

Katalyst can help
