Richards IT infrastructure exploded in a few years...
In 2006 they reached 90 employees...but they fulfill only 5000 orders a day = 55 orders per employee
The overhead makes them fulfill 45%fewer orders per employee than they did6 years ago !That growth makes Richards marginsdecrease !
Tina is theHR ManagerHer business lifebecame difficult whenthe company grewto 90 people in 2007.
So she asked Richard fornew software to manageemployees leave and holidays.
Richard was afraid of this request because,to be efficient this new software should: • Process data from employees timesheets • Integrate with the project management system • Integrate with the payroll software • Display holidays in the enterprise shared calendar
Richard thought it was time to go for acompletely new strategy for their IT structure.So, he integrated : They activated the “holidays” module only for an easy and quick integration.
His motivation was due to:• License : 0$• Starting costs for On Demand: 0$• One software to fit all business needs• 350+ integrated modules• Fully Open Source
The new infrastructure looked like this...Annual Maintenance: 45.000 $Annual Licenses: 39.000 $
