Blueprinter case for CUBES Software

  1. 1. CUBES Software Danmark A/S Skovlytoften 14 DK-2840 Holte +45 5059 8960 info@cubes-software.com www.cubes-software.com A future-proof HR system with all relevant key figures With a mere 16 employees, Blueprinter invested in the future by choosing CUBES HR. To Blueprinter, it was important to be in control of all master data and present themselves professionally to investors and board, and also be able to expand the HR system as the company grows on the international market. Despite being able to make-do with a home grown HR system consisting of spreadsheets and more, Blueprinter chose to invest in the future with CUBES HR. The light version of CUBES provides an overview of all master data, including employment contracts, organisation chart, and updated contact information on all employees and closest relatives in case of an emergency. Also included is absence and vacation planning, as well as allowing for predefined reporting. In addition, employees are able to enter all master data and vacation requests by themselves. According to CEO of Blueprinter Niels Appel, the management assessed it to be easier to introduce a HR system while the company was small, and then progressively add to it as the need for tactical and strategic HR increases. ”CUBES HR has been an important investment in the future. We wanted to have the proper foundation for our HR processes, removing the risk of ending up in a situation where we lack the overview of key figures when investors or the board are requesting answers. Blueprinter’s main investors are two equity funds, and as such we believe it is important to present ourselves professionally,” Niels Appel says. Catalyst to gain control of master data In reality, Blueprinter chose to implement CUBES HR even before the company’s 3D printer arrived on the market. CUBES HR was used as the catalyst to gain control of all master and systemised data in the right manner. Further, an important element was to get all data digitised, making it available to all the relevant people. The challenge Rather than a home-grown system of spreadsheets and the like, Blueprinter wanted to implement a professional and future-proof HR system which were expandable as the need to develop HR processes increased. The process The implementation has been easy and hassle-free. The support has been good, and the system is easy to use without training. The result CUBES HR has been a catalyst to gain control of all master data – not least of which was digitising data. CUBES HR affords Blueprinter a HR system that can be expanded upon as the need for tactical and strategic HR increases. Blueprinter are presenting themselves professionally, and can at any time present relevant key figures to investors and board. CASE Blueprinter

CUBES Software Danmark A/S Skovlytoften 14 DK-2840 Holte +45 5059 8960 info@cubes-software.com www.cubes-software.com ”Some data was entered into spreadsheets; other documents were not even tracked yet, while our employment contracts were sitting in a physical binder. It is great having all this sorted, otherwise the risk was that documents would go missing,” says Niels Appel, who was also pleased with the implementation process, which went smoothly. Intuitive vacation planning Besides gaining control of master data, both management and employees have gained a system for registering vacation days. With vacation registration, the employees themselves are able to enter vacation requests. When the management has approved the request, the vacation period is automatically registered in the system. This feature provides a quick overview of which employee wishes to be on vacation when, if there are overlaps of vacation requests in a department, and how many vacation days the individual has spent within the vacation year. The overview is not merely viewable by the management, but throughout the organisation. The individual employee can at any point see how many vacation days are spent. ”Even with a mere 16 employees, it becomes difficult to gain an overview of resources available in a department. CUBES HR affords us a structure for this, and we avoid entering vacation days into a spreadsheet every month,” Niels Appel says. Abreast of HR According to Niels Appel, the modular structure in particular was decisive in choosing CUBES HR, because it allowed Blueprinter to get started with a relatively small budget. ”CUBES HR has afforded us exactly that which we wanted to achieve. We have been granted a great overview on a platform allowing us to expand without using increasing amounts of resources to do so. It is always debatable when one is supposed to introduce a HR system. The vast majority will only do so when the board demands answers from HR that they are not able to answer. Our strategy has been to prefer to get it up and running a bit early, while it is still easy - and it has been easy. The system is very easy to use and there has been no need for training,” Niels Appel says. CUBES Software aligns HR with overall strategy, thereby allowing the organisation to do strategic planning onward and forward, based on systematic documentation. CUBES Software is a robust talent management system, ensuring strategic HR with workforce planning and project and performance management. The strength of CUBES Software is the ability to handle and collate all critical master data in the organisation and visualise the global organisational structure, affording a total overview in an easy and flexible manner. About Blueprinter Blueprinter is a Danish, innovation- driven IT company with an easy to use professional 3D Printer. Blueprinter prints functional prototypes to be used in development departments in manufacturing companies by archi- tects and designers, and is also often being used by technical universities. The printed functional models are comparable to models made with a much more expensive laser sintering technology. Blueprinter emerged from a final thesis from the Technical University of Denmark and is owned by the two founders, and a few private investors; the CEO and two equity funds. CUBES HR has been an important investment in the future. We wanted to build the right foundation for our HR processes, so that we are not liable to be in a situation where we lack an overview of key figures when investors or board are requesting answers,” Niels Appel, CEO of Blueprinter, concludes.
