Sometimes, an emergency demands that you implement a system that saves lives - overnight. During Hurrican Katrina, FTI implemented a system that allowed shelters to manage evacuees, schedule volunteer medical personnel, unite loved ones and provide real time data to the Center for Disease Control (CDC)- OVERNIGHT.
In every business, data is money. And every business has a unique strategy for delivering their product and service to the customer. That is why your business needs the right tools to fit your processes and strategy, and that delivers the data you need to make the right decisions.
FTI has designed a robust database for a Presidential campaign that had millions of records, providing information to authorized users nationwide. It needed to be secure, reliable and scalable. FTI has the proven know how.
Whether it's a Windows service, a web service, a batch program that runs nightly, or a desktop application, we've built them all. We've done everything from automating firewalls to winning Best of Show from Networld Interop for our network security software.
The future of your business is defined by the systems you have today
Your systems and processes will define and shape how, and if, you meet your goals. People working on the right thing at the right time are critical to this process. Having real time feedback on critical benchmarks gives you the ability to fine tune your systems to achieve your goals.
Your plan is the roadmap that will determine what your future will look like. It is the mental commitment of time and resources to build your company, and requires that you know who is going to do what and when in order to make that happen. Your systems must reflect your plan.
A plan without execution is just wishful thinking. A business must have the systems in place that allow each team member to execute their part of the plan effectively and efficiently. A system should report on progress and immediately highlight any problems. It should also provide an opportunity for systematic innovation.
For most companies, the purpose of a website is to capture an email, which is a piece of data about a potential prospect. Yet, how many companies measure the cost of developing, deploying and maintaining their website vs. the number of emails captured? Not many. Most companies fail to look at data as MONEY. But the importance of data being money is not just limited to websites. A building contractor invests vast amounts of money in labor and materials, and data about the progress of a project is critical to cash flow and the success of the business.
Technology is impacting every business. Robots are driving cars and trucks. Smartphones are measuring patient vital statistics for doctors. The world is changing at a face pace and if you don't have a process for Systematic Innovation in place, you are likely to be left behind. If you don't know the "7 Windows of Opportunity for Innovation" contact us and we will share it with your team.
Systematic Innovation is part of our culture. We strive to be the best, which is reflected in the awards and recognition we have received for our work.
