Arrange a time with us for a demonstration of the power of this platform and how it will accelerate your digital transformation goals.

Introduction to OutSystems

Low-Code Applications

A low-code development platform (LCDP) is software that provides the environment used to create applications through graphical user interfaces and configuration instead of traditional computer programming and they are revolutionizing both the business and IT landscapes.

Low-code development platforms reduce the amount of traditional hand-coding, enabling accelerated delivery of business applications whether they be in house tools or customer-facing mobile apps. These self-contained “programming environments” are the future of IT as they ensure that a wider range of people can contribute to the application’s development not only those with formal programming skills.

Low Code also offers a significantly lower initial cost of setup, training, and deployment with the added benefits of agility and third party interfacing made more modular in nature.

This incredible technology doesn’t render your existing legacy systems obsolete. It actually does the opposite. Extending existing usability and sociability in ways that previously deemed as too time-consuming and expensive.

These platforms are leading the charge in the democratization of technology and make a strong case for consideration as the core of many businesses IT initiatives.

As we move into the age of AI and increasing interaction with bots and business partners alike the utility and power of low code environments will become the new normal in IT.

Futurework.AI is excited to introduce you to it.

Proof of Value Engagement

The time for proof of concepts was years ago, we partner with proven best in category software vendors to prove directly the value they provide quickly and painlessly.

We typically allocate 10 days spent working in and with your business to surface the best use cases from your business that best suit a meaningful showcase of the proposed technologies.

Our goal is to rapidly progress you to an informed decision point on committing to technology spends for your business that can over years cost from hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars.

These commitments should be informed by practical demonstrations of them in your business working with your real Data and users.

You will have a functional environment to see how the technology functions and to determine if this the right choice for your business.

Our solutions are pre-tested, pre-proven and adaptable we have no need to make any disruptive changes to showcase them inside your business.

You get the opportunity to evaluate their performance in your real-world setting.

Yes, it really is possible and will give you a fast and insightful vision of what your business can achieve.

Process Analytics

Up until now the problem with analytical data mining was that it could only tell you so much and even then, only those things that the programmer deemed to be valuable. Not anymore. With AI power at its disposal and the ability to be programmed easily by people with real-world business experience and questions to be answered, process analysis can now be relied on to not only answer the question you have, but it can help you formulate new and more powerful ones.

This means that your IT department doesn’t have to be involved in solving complex business problems they don’t really understand or are interested in.

This newfound ease of use is coupled with the ability to display complex data in ways that will make it easy to understand for even the least technical members of your team. Whether it be a down the line study of time in the process, organization mapping or a vast all of enterprise process discovery and restructuring, the tools exist to make it happen repeatably, cost-effectively and easily.

One of the huge advantages to these new tools are there ability to draw their data from multiple and disparate data sources so that an all of the enterprise investigation is truly that and not a cobbled-together collection of data sets that don’t really relate to each other.

On their own, these tools are very powerful but when combined in the right technology stack, they allow you to roadmap your business for the inevitable restructuring that digitisation will undoubtedly demand. This means you will be making forward-facing IT decisions with high ROI and low Tech debt based on real data, not just opinion. How many robots do I actually need? Where do I put them? What is the most effective means to manage them? These are the sorts of questions that can be answered reliably, As the tech is infinitely reconfigurable once you have the answer to the questions you need to answer now, tomorrows answers are available quickly without involving IT experts.

Futurework.AI is ready to show you how.

RPA Robotic Process Automation

RPA interfaces with existing applications and automates high volume, repeatable tasks.

In simple terms, anything your computer can currently do is now a candidate for an RPA Robotic Automation there are a number of practical and financial considerations to understand before you commit to your long term goals.

Think of RPA as the magic technology of business automation, at this stage, it still needs trained magicians and sometimes the magic is not executed perfectly.

The leading RPA vendors are curating and encouraging rich interacting ecosystems with most of the software you use on a daily basis currently addressed to a very high standard.

If your software is in-house or a little less common then the RPA tools are designed to interact robustly and resiliently with as many applications as possible. The caution with a specialist or uncommon software is you will have to bear the cost of being first to figure out how to train the robot.

RPA transforms how businesses deal with manual processes, freeing up staff for customer-focused and value-added activities.

RPA is a critical first step to creating operational data and capacity that traditionally had not existed.

The best RPA projects benefit from a skilled partner, if your current process has underlying issues the act of automating that process can introduce problems a good partner helps you surface the right processes to work with as well as guiding you through some of the pitfalls of rolling out and scaling-up RPA initiatives.

Enterprise Search

Enterprise Search is the unsung hero for Digital Workplace Transformation.

AI-powered search and hyper-personalized applications aren’t just for dating and dining anymore.
Bring them to the workplace for faster decisions, happier teams, and loyal customers.

Do you waste time every day looking for and often not finding the information and answers you seek. You are not alone it is because your current business search engines have stagnated in the last decade.

Digital Commerce Search

The bar for product search has been set by Google, Amazon and the leading eTailers, set very high and getting higher every year.

If you make your users search 3 or 4 times many of your potential customers will start their search again elsewhere.

Your online shopping search experience needs to be as close and as personalised as practically possible.

Amazon has a product team of over 500 working on their search and recommendations outcomes,
in order to get close to your customer expectations, you need to be deploying the most powerful technology that works seamlessly with your site.

The Search function is used to show shoppers what they want when they want it, your job is to use the data you have collected and some of the latest in improved search algorithms and AI techniques to lift the quality of the search box. The results are measured in improvements in Add To Cart ratios and Average order values.

You need to be using the most appropriate techniques to enhance and personalize your Shopper’s browsing experience it’s possible your current eCommerce platform may not be as fully featured as possible in this capability.

Using Augmented Intelligence what you know about your customer along with other key signals and data you collect you should have the ability to continuously review and tweak progress in the search outcomes.

There is much to unpack when considering leapfrogging your current search and personalisation capabilities to the next level. We have a long background in Retail and appreciate that pure IT bells and whistles do nothing without the focus on the business imperatives.

These rules apply to B2B, B2C and Omnichannel retailers.

Please reach out to us we have experience with multiple options and are happy to help you understand what option is best for your needs.

AI-Powered Search

Search is the universal interface and we rely on it more every day. It has reached the point where the average consumer expects that the search box they are using can almost read their mind. The truth of it is that very few of these search programs live up to that expectation. Until now.

Whether your focus is Digital Commerce, all of enterprise data search or vast networks of records and transactions, modern cloud-based third party search has arrived to improve your experience and those of your business partners and customers alike. With beautifully integrated data analysis and the ability to interface with applications of all descriptions these systems offer benefits on many fronts and like all AI-based technology become better at the assignment, you set them over time.

An increase in search speed, more clearly defined result and hyper-personalisation of those same result are a few of the many benefits that await adopters of these programs. The leaders in this field are now offering extensions and add on that allows once difficult processes like visual merchandising and loyalty programs to be easily maintained and leveraged.

The highest compliment your search engine will get is increased sales for your Digital Commerce site or a larger net profit at the end of the financial year, people will just leverage a great search engine in ways that will benefit your bottom line.

The key thing to remember is that the modern user simply expects google or Amazon quality results from every search they initiate.

Intelligent Automation

The hype surrounding Intelligent automation is almost as complicated as the technology itself and it is important to remember there is a spectrum of Automation complexity. It starts with Macros and Scripts, RPA, and moves through Process Orchestration, Intelligent Automation and ends with Autonomous Intelligence.

Where which and how much of this spectrum is applied to your business is important to understand in rolling it out to your organization as well as the order in which it is executed. Where do I start, where is the best ROI, do I need a little or a lot. These are all questions that need to be answered before a laptop is fired up and money is spent.

A workforce Innovation platform is considered the fabric that meshes the other technology components together to promote and enable process orchestration.

When Automation tools interface with AI it is referred to as Intelligent Automation.

Capabilities are rapidly progressing choosing and prioritising which business processes are suitable for automation, weighing up your business goals against the practical considerations of time and money is the key to successful projects.

Choosing which is right for you is at the centre of what we do.
