Ortelius Resolve

Take the lead and create a true reflection of your specific business area

How can we help you in your role?

Today companies need to have a multidimensional digital version of their physical world, to be able to improve their business operations and take the lead. To showcase the positive effects of starting with resolving a challenge in one specific business area, we’ve selected five real-life cases. If you can’t find a case for your area, don’t worry: most likely, we have been there before as well!

Five customer challenges resolved

Note: the financial gains in the below cases are shared for illustration purposes, and cannot be guaranteed.

Case 1

The strategy leader

The situation
Our customer, a leading Nordic civil engineering company, lacked a coherent portfolio of change initiatives. Their initiatives were overlapping and lacked alignment with their strategic goals. They could not assess them as they did not know the impact they would have.

What we did
Our customer gained control by collecting and implementing all initiatives at a group level in the inorigo® 360 interaction platform, in the so-called Change Portfolio Navigator.

How did it do
After 3 months, initiatives of 50 million SEK could be stopped immediately due to overlap and initiatives of just over 100 million SEK were closed due to poor alignment with the strategy. ​The management could assess future initiatives against weighting models and drive more organized digital transformation.

Case 2

The supply chain manager

The situation
Our customer wanted to keep track of two KPI’s and were looking for a solution which would help them to communicate internally and would lead to desired behavior. They wanted to track the environmental impact of their projects​ and the cost for dealing with waste of their projects.​ They asked us, as they already had digitized some business areas in the inorigo® versatile database platform.

What we did
Ortelius made an integration between the systems of external waste suppliers and the inorigo® 360 interaction platform. We connected the output from the waste suppliers to the projects already in the versatile database. In this way, our customer re-used and built upon the knowledge in the platform.

How did it do
For our customer this is one of the most appreciated applications, and used on daily basis. The use case extended from analyzing finalized projects, to using the data to predict cost and waste for future projects. It enables to have qualified discussions on choice of material and the impact on the environment and cost. So, enabling ‘What if’- scenarios.

Case 3

The IT leader

The situation
This globally leading customer invested heavily in digital capabilities, but found it difficult to grasp which investments affected what business capabilities.​ It was complicated for them to reduce the number of IT systems because it was impossible to understand the impact on the business if they would shut a system down.

What we did
Our customer gained control by implementing the Change Portfolio Navigator in the inorigo® 360 interaction platform. After only four months they could define the links between investments in digital tools and different business capabilities. They could analyze what ability level was required to be “best in class “.

How did it do
Deviations and investments were quickly detected, and old IT systems could be shut down to an annual license saving of just over 200 million SEK.

Case 4

The IP leader

The situation
Our internationally operating customer had scattered and unstructured knowledge in the Patent Department and did not know whether patents were actually used. They also had a scattered interface to R&D​ and wish to connect better to the business to optimize usage of resources​.

What we did
Our customer already used the inorigo® 360 interaction platform for mapping and connecting their entire product portfolio. So we could easily connect their patent data to the product structure, resulting in a structured ​knowledge of used and un-used patents​ and ability to sharing​ this knowledge.

How did it do
Our customer could stop manually updating the products in the Patent Database, start pruning the patent portfolio on ongoing basis, and focus on the right registrations. The recovery period for their investments was within 6 months.

Case 5

The operations leader

The situation
Our globally leading customer had a scattered product structure, and no insight in material nor capital equipment as these resided in disconnected systems.

What we did
Leveraging the inorigo® versatile database platform, Ortelius installed a DTO covering multiple business areas, ranging from product model to transport and from packaging to CO2 allocation. This allowed our customer to apply a common language and to create one single, connected data source.

How did it do
Instead of spending a lot of time searching for the required data to start new projects, our customer can pull up relevant data in no time… they can extract insights and use them for actions to develop the right products and services for their clients.
