Frequently Asked Questions
Get more information about Rapidworks and how we work
When information is held in unstructured formats, such as spreadsheets, PDF files or emails, it is not possible to easily combine it for reports or overviews. Often it comes with versioning issues and team members not being up to date on the latest information. Process digitalisation helps provide one source of truth to everyone while structuring data in the background that can be used for automated reporting or machine learning once enough data has been gathered.
Rapidworks focuses on industrial innovation processes, such as new product introduction, product change management and product sourcing. We add the most value to those with unique process flows and iterative process steps, measurements in quality assessments and collaboration with suppliers.
We set the process up for the client ourselves, so the onboarding would be as fast and convenient as possible. The client gets a tailored process, which doesn’t need any onboarding as it mirrors their existing workflow.
Opposite to company-wide digital transformation projects, incremental digitalisation helps companies digitalise their processes one process workflow at a time. This way, users can start benefiting from the changes immediately and the feedback cycle is much shorter.
An incremental approach to digitalisation doesn’t mean that the company shouldn’t have a long-term digitalisation strategy. It just changes the way that strategy is implemented.
- Processes are digitalised in a matter of days with no software development needed, allowing the company to gain immediate ROI.
- Includes functionality that is made for manufacturers, such as iterative workflows for production line tests and quality assessments.
- Full traceability of steps and responsibilities in an industrial process.
- Collaboration with suppliers to provide better solutions for end customers.
- Structured data and process flow with input validations and automated analytics.
Rapidworks is a modular process tracking system, which means that all processes are tailor-made using existing modules and custom templates. No time is spent on software development. Instead, experts only have to configure the modules and create the templates, which takes much less time than creating these solutions from the ground up.
Rapidworks is meant for innovation processes, such as but not limited to, new product introduction, change management and sourcing.
All the processes that Rapidworks digitalises are tailor-made and therefore one of a kind. The processes themselves can be long (lasting for a year or more) or short (run multiple times a day) and can vary in complexity.
Rapidworks mainly digitalises processes exactly as they are but in cases where users are running the same process with little modifications depending on the process owner or factory then Rapidworks enables them to use the same standardised process flow across the board, creating comparable data and savings.
The process consists of a series of steps that are followed in a certain order so a goal can be reached. Projects follow a process to reach a specific goal by a specific deadline.
Before we can start setting up the process, we need to understand the process workflow and which roles are involved within that process. Sometimes this information is recorded in a process overview document or a process workflow. If none of this exists then we can work on it together to have everything mapped for you.
Once we have received the information required for process setup, our experts get to work. When the process is ready we arrange a demo call and show you what we’ve done so we can make sure that everything is correct. If there are any changes that are needed, we make those asap and share access to the finished product with you.
When we have reviewed the process together and have reached the final version, we share access to the software. Thereon, you are free to create your own projects based on the process we have set up and invite all the users that you want. When you have questions, we are always there for you and ready to assist.
Yes. We have a broad API that enables us to connect Rapidworks to other systems. The connections that we create are custom so you could share data exactly the way you want.
We take the security of our customers’ data very seriously and have implemented a range of measures to ensure that your data is protected. We use industry-standard encryption protocols to secure all data transmissions between your device and our servers. We have implemented strict access controls to ensure that only authorised users have access to your data. We have enabled multi-factor authentication to ensure that any unauthorised access attempts are prevented.
