Eurotux as a Driver of Digital Transformation
Several sectors of the economy, especially industry, are being impacted by disruptive technologies such as internet-of-things (IoT), artificial intelligence, cloud computing, 3D printing and end-to-end scanning (E2E). This is the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
This whole process was intensified with the COVID-19 pandemic, as the so-called “great reset” forced companies around the world to adopt innovative models of agility and resilience. Industry 4.0 became the destination of practically all companies in Portugal and the world. The process to achieve the Industry 4.0 is known as Digital Transformation.
Eurotux is positioned as a driver for this change, being the ideal partner for organizations in different degrees of digitalization.
In this article we will help you demystify Digital Transformation, and tell you a bit about how this process has been in Eurotux itself.
It does not require a total and immediate change
The digital transition does not necessarily imply a total and immediate change of processes in your organization. This means that it can be a process carried out in small steps, the first step (starting) being the most important.
Instead of mobilizing all resources for a transversal and abrupt process, the Digital Transition can be initiated from the integration of tools such as CRM and ERP. In the case of the industry, the adoption of IoT technology can be gradual, with the installation of intelligent devices that communicate with other systems.
With this process, the technological infrastructure begins to be gradually integrated, tool by tool. The great goal of Digital Transformation in this sense would be to centralize all devices and tools in a central system, which allows a holistic view of the company.
The two vectors of action
The digital transition acts directly on two main vectors, the first of the employees, who now have more insights about the organization and its tasks, which allows greater productivity, time and cost optimization. Another important component is the automation of repetitive tasks, which replaces manual work. Undoubtedly, digitalization is a competitive advantage over its competitors.
The second vector is that of customers, who now have a higher quality service and higher added value. Another advantage is the greater personalization of the offers, which enables greater customer satisfaction.
A great opportunity for many SMEs will be the government’s incentive to strategic markets. The Recovery and Resilience plan presented by the Portuguese Government has been divided into three main areas, one of which is the digital transition, with a budget of 3,000 million euros, which will be shared between the digital school, companies 4.0 and the Public Administration.
Eurotux will soon announce how it can support its clients in the technological component of applications to Digital Transition support funds.
Eurotux is a digital company since its origin 20 years ago. However, as it happens in many organizations, over the years several computer tools have been installed and implemented for different purposes: an ERP, an invoicing software, an internal communication system, a document management solution, etc.
For this reason, we started in 2019 a Digital Transition project that consists in the creation of an intermediate system that allows communication among all the other software. With this system, the duplication of information is avoided, besides requiring a reflection of the current processes that has allowed them to become more efficient.
According to Sandra Ferreira, IT Business Analyst at Eurotux, “since we have adopted digital transformation as a priority, we have noticed a clear improvement in the way we work. We eliminated bureaucracy and automated processes, which led people to stop consuming so much time on repetitive tasks and could direct their focus to new projects. We increased the visibility of information, facilitating decision making. This was not only reflected in improved productivity and increased ROI, but also led to the motivation of employees, who feel more confident and stimulated in carrying out their work”.
