Challenge

  • Data maintained and used in MS excel and it was not manageable.
  • No tracking of approvals.
  • Do not get the live status of the Request i.e. Capex, Invoice Status, Payment Status, production reports.
  • Lack of tracking for the approver's comments as well as status.
  • No insights to Management for the overall status of production of materials
  • Lack of tracking for the Action owners and their comments as well as status.

Solution Strategy:

  • Live tracking of Capex status as well as their approvers status and comments.
  • Dashboards for Admin/Approver/Requestor.
  • Power BI reports for admin.
  • PDF conversion of Approved CAPEX
  • Live tracking of Commercial request (CAPEX to Invoice realized) status as well as their approvers status and comments.
  • Role-based Dashboards i.e. Admin/ Approver/Requestor.
  • PDF conversion of Approved request (Capex / PO / Invoice)

Results:

The transformation helped Essentra to manage key actions from meetings, projects, incidents, audits, and monitor quality control. It provided real-time visibility and status for every action within the organization or the strategic business unit along with critical insights reports for production.
