Successful Enterprise Solutions
The accompanying diagram (click image to enlarge) illustrates a sample architecture implemented with the help of Avum engineers. Our engineers lead the effort to design, develop, deploy, maintain, and enhance all applications, components and integration processes for the system depicted. The new corporate ERP system provided Order Management, Procurement and Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) with business partners, as well as integration with pre-existing applications, such as the Oracle financial system and supply chain. The new system allowed our client the ability to overcome competitors in the race to reduce supply chain cycle time and costs, while providing maximum flexibility to accommodate the rapidly growing company.
Business Process Reengineering
Avum provides business analysis and reengineering services for business enterprise restructuring and efficiency improvement. Increasing government cost awareness results in a corresponding growth in demand for these services. Our goal is to assist an organization in articulating their vision and providing the infrastructure to become more efficient and cost effective.We prefer innovation through reengineering and avoid incremental improvement, a prime enabler of complacency.
We team with corporate, DoD, and other government agencies, in exploring their current business structure, resulting in recommendations to optimize their operations. Our analysis considers business incentives, industry best practices, emerging technology, and changing markets and economic forces as they affect current business goals.
Using Service Oriented Architectures (SOA), Avum has linked together multiple systems using legacy interfaces and web services, saving both government and commercial organizations millions of dollars, through application of our reengineering strategy.
Our Navy ERP efforts provided significant improvement in efficiency and decreased cost for the Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Navy, Washington, D.C., in the Mechanization of Contract Administrative Service (MOCAS) integration efforts. Our reengineering efforts enabled the Navy to implement auto-population of MOCAS, significantly exceeding their expectations and saving approximately $8 million annually in Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS) payment fees, a savings many times greater than the cost of our contract.
We have been the major contributors to the success of Canon's Enterprise Information Systems and are the driving force behind the development and maintenance of Canon's Consumer Products marketing website. Avum automated Canon's Program & Promotion Management System through customized web-applications and integration processes, revealing $600 million in program details. This revelation enabled Canon executives to make more informed business decisions maximizing return on investment for all promotional expenditures, and saving Canon millions of dollars.
