Solution leverages BusinessOptix cloud-based platform to operationalize Design Thinking practices from front to back office
NEW YORK, August 11, 2015 – Genpact (NYSE: G), a global leader in designing, transforming, and running intelligent business operations, today announced the launch of SmartModeler, a cloud-based solution that leverages BusinessOptix’s business modelling and process design platform.
Most large enterprises struggle with transformation and agility even though they are critical for success in a fast-paced global economy. Whether implementing digital transformation, complying with complex and ever-evolving regulations, or achieving speed-to-market with new products and market expansion, global companies are challenged by the complexity of change management that is encumbered by legacy systems, processes, and often people. The problem is compounded by organizational silos among the front, middle and back office.
SmartModeler benchmarks, documents and analyzes current operations to identify opportunities for streamlining processes. The solution also provides greater transparency to track results and shows progress of the transformation, and enables better collaboration and understanding of interdependencies across C-suite functions and other departments. Ultimately, SmartModeler drives effective transformation based on Lean management and digital practices, and as a result, serves as a valuable tool in the creation of intelligent operations that sense, react, and learn efficiently and effectively. SmartModeler is also a key tool to amplify the impact of Design Thinking methods that emphasize the value of end user adoption of new processes and technologies.
SmartModeler makes transformation more effective by incorporating Genpact’s patented Smart Enterprise Processes (SEPSM) methodology, deep industry domain expertise, and experience and insights in process automation and analytics. For example, Genpact has been able to cut a multi-national consumer product goods company’s transformation time and costs by up to 30 percent by reimagining its processes using SmartModeler to design the strategy, achieve approval and support from all key management, and begin implementation with complete clarity of vision, roles, and responsibilities among all impacted stakeholders.
“We believe this solution, based on leading-edge BusinessOptix digital technology, boosts our clients’ ability to align strategy and discovery enabled by Design Thinking practices with process operationalization,” said Shantanu Ghosh, senior vice president, CFO Services and Consulting at Genpact. “As a result, SmartModeler is part of our long-term strategy to deliver practical transformation solutions based on our digital capabilities, domain expertise, and process excellence practices.”
“By partnering with Genpact to develop SmartModeler, we’re combining our state-of-the-art business modeling and process design platform with Genpact’s intellectual property and best practices in process change,” said Peter McInally, managing director at BusinessOptix. “Together we provide companies with a practical, yet strategic tool that delivers real impact by embedding the power of digital technologies in transformation programs.”
