Use a digital image to manage every area of your company.
Around the world. In real time. And more efficiently than ever.
With ValueStreamer®, you can leverage the success factors of a paper-based approach to shop floor management — and create information transparency across multiple sites and throughout the value chain based on one set of data.
Make data entry and maintenance easier, and transfer data seamlessly by automating the aggregation of information like KPIs across the entire cascade.
In addition to use in classic production shop-floor environments, ValueStreamer® is also used to agily manage processes, projects and tasks throughout the entire company.
ValueStreamer® can be perfectly integrated into your existing IT infrastructure, regardless of whether it is cloud hosting, on-premise operations or links to third-party systems.
ValueStreamer® uses select KPIs to give you real-time information about your department's performance, regardless of whether you're dealing with interdisciplinaryteams that have an agilestructure or with a classic departmental hierarchy. Visualizations of information about processes, status and other data points help identify non-compliance and downtime. Data can be entered at every level both manually and automatically. The values determined are aggregated automatically and in real time. The team board displays a variety of list views and provides an overview of all of the current team measures and/or weekly topics; it can also show the Go & See dates that have been arranged.
Keep an overview of the work status (backlog, work in progress, etc.) within your team at all times, no matter whether you want interdisciplinary or department-specific information. Tasks from interdisciplinary teams are automatically entered on the task board of the department as a duplicate. This helps you prevent redundancies in creating task cards gives you complete transparency about all of your employees' tasks in every kind of process. A wide variety of filters as well as sorting and categorization functions support you in your daily work with the task board or scrum board, such as grouping by priority or kind of task.
A variety of integrated apps allow you to manage functions in different view modes. Other apps can easily be added on via DB Designer as well as the app store of the SmartWE platform, thus expanding the standard system by additional functions.
Integrate ValueStreamer® into your existing system landscape. Project data can be transferred from other planning systems, and tasks or order information can be compared or linked to your ERP system.
Enter data only once: you can put them in ValueStreamer® or a third-party system and use them in both systems. Data sets can be read, generated, edited and deleted as an open system that can be accessed by the interface.
ValueStreamer® is a cloud-based solution which offers access via all current browsers and supports integration via standard programming languages. It is designed so that your data from existing systems can be synchronized.
Platform-independent use guarantees an optimal visualization and user-friendliness for desktop computers, large touch screens and mobile devices alike. And the software is intuitive and uses touch-screen navigation.
You have your choice of hosting ValueStreamer® in-house or via the Internet (at a German computer center). It is ideal for international use because it features multiple languages.
