Strategies

 

Given the right tools, imagine what you could automate. How would you change your business processes? And how could that change your business?

Could you operate leaner? Execute faster? Work smarter? Reduce costs? Increase user satisfaction?

At Gideon Taylor, we help organizations fundamentally change the way they work, revolutionizing business processes and removing technology barriers. Our VISION is to help our clients work Simply, Effectively, Efficiently and Flexibly. You’ll hear us refer to it simply as S.E.E.F., but it’s a big part of how we measure the success of your project.

Envision

 

Since GT eForms™ provides a clean canvas and limitless flexibility, you're free to focus on the possibilities for your process rather than the constraints of your technology. With that kind of freedom…

What processes would you automate? What systems would you integrate?

It makes for a much more interesting conversation, and presents far greater opportunity to radically redefine HOW you do WHAT you do – more easily, more effectively, more efficiently. By exploring the full range of possibilities, we can help you create a roadmap that can drive revolutionary improvement and automation for any processes you’d like to target, tailored to your business and your budget.

 

 

 

Simplify

 

Our approach begins with understanding and documenting your current business processes. We look at not only WHAT you’re doing and HOW you’re doing it, but WHY. We believe in challenging the ‘but-we’ve-always-done-it-that-way’ perception by asking the right questions; identifying ways in which the business process itself can be streamlined or made more efficient before we even consider an approach to automation. This allows us to transform the process from the start, making it simpler, more efficient, effective and flexible.

What steps can be skipped and when? What data can be defaulted or derived? What approvals can be streamlined?

We can help you design your new eForms and applications based on the specific fields and information necessary for each transaction. Our simplified eForms intelligently restrict valid values, auto-populate data, and dynamically hide or display fields and pages as needed to present only the information necessary for the user to complete the transaction.

Intuitive, uncluttered and with the smarts built-in, your eForms will dramatically reduce error rates, processing time and calls to the help desk.

Automate

 

For many organizations, process automation is an unfulfilled promise. Simply automating a process through the use of an electronic form or custom self-service application doesn’t inherently make it faster, better or more efficient.

By applying unique, process-driven methodologies and mindful design, our automation practice goes well beyond merely applying technology solutions. We help our clients review, redesign and re-invigorate business processes.

There are many different approaches that can be taken in defining and designing efficient process automation. Our philosophy includes not only replicating manual processes electronically but also enhancing existing practices to maximize productivity and time efficiency.

When done properly, automation through the use of proven and state-of-the-art information technology allows an organization to dramatically alter the complexity, speed and labor intensity of its business processes.

 

 

 







Integrate

 

Our focus on the complete business process lifecycle requires the smooth movement of data and work not only within PeopleSoft applications, but often across disparate systems, outside of PeopleSoft. The demands of these integrated solutions require our consultants to be proficient in true system integration, a core competency of Gideon Taylor Consulting.

The proliferation of integration technologies is driven by the promise of seamless business flow across systems; real-time and near-real-time transactions with external entities like applicants, vendors and suppliers; and standards-based collaboration. We believe in the power of integration technology, and focus on creating solutions that leverage the most efficient integration tools and methods.

Our consultants are experts in industry-standard integration technologies, including:

  • Integration Broker configuration
  • Synchronous and Asynchronous Application Messaging
  • Web Services
  • SOAP
  • XSLT Transformation and Translation
  • Component Interfaces
  • Business Interlinks
  • Service-Oriented Architecture
  • Enterprise Portal Content Management
