Trust between business & IT
Chills enables also the automation of repetitive tasks. Business proposals are implemented and released the same day. This creates a strong and trustworthy collaboration between business and IT. Building together a dynamic organisation strengthening the relation with customers. The Chills platform shows a transparent overview of all integrations and visualises the data flow.
People in your organisation deliver the applications improvements. They possess business process knowledge and understand the application supporting it. The rapid implementation of improvements encourages them to make their work more efficient. This is how Chills mobilises your workforce, contributing to a more efficient organisation.
Mobilisation of people’s competences is a prerequisite to shape and reshape your organisation. Chills motivates people to actively participate in organisation development. Collaboration between business and IT makes it fun and exciting responding to future challenges.
Today organisations are locked in their applications delivered by numerous providers where hard-coded changes are expensive, time consuming and a potential high failure rate. Dependency on various software providers is not the preferred situation for organisations.
A limited technical skill set is required to operate Chills and there is no need for extensive hard code programming knowledge. This disconnects your organisation from the expensive business model of your current application/integration providers.
The Open Source Community builds continuously new integration and automation functionality. Customers vote on the Chills platform prioritising the “most wanted” functionality.
From a fragmented to an integrated organisation
It is difficult to predict market changes, but one thing is for sure, change will happen! Your customers are daily confronted with new possibilities in terms of product and service features and the way they are offered. The good news is, you are prepared using Chills.
Prepare for uncertainty using a platform to manage your integrations. This flexibility leads to your market leadership being the preferred supplier of products and services. You build an image of a forward-looking organisation people, businesses and organisations will use as an example.
From hard code to soft code technology
Most application integrations are programmed in hard coding. This demands a lot of time and money while the outcome and release date are uncertain, frustration is often a result. A hard-coded integration is often a black box for customers, and reprogramming is troublesome. When one integrated application or business requirement changes, the integration must be reprogrammed.
These business issues of time and cost are solved using soft code technology. Soft code means a user-friendly interface on top of hard coding. This reduces the amount of hard code programming and associated costs substantially. Using this interface on top of hard coding enables people with no or limited programming knowledge to work directly with application integrations.
The limited programming skills Chills requires results in a substantial cost reduction. Expensive consultants integrating and automating your applications is something of the past. You control rapid organisational changes, we call it independence.
The administrator interface manages integrations and automation done by the customer or an external consultant. Click here to get a platform impression described in the technology whitepaper.
