A PARADIGM SHIFT

IN HOW ORGANIZATIONS

COLLABORATIVELY ALIGN BUSINESS PROCESSES

AND HOW INFORMATION WORKERS GET THINGS DONE.

 

OVERBLUE™ is an Integrated Management System

( or IMS ) that implements the principles of SPHIDA's groundbreaking Proactive Thinking excellence framework. OVERBLUE™ introduces a new paradigm in how people align business processes with corporate goals, how they plan activities, get work done and systematically achieve the desired business results. It is intuitive, effective and quickly scalable ( from a small team or a single process to an entire organization ).

 

 

DESIGNED FOR  MICROSOFT OFFICE.

 

OVERBLUE™ is a touch-ready visual software that plugs into Microsoft Visio™ and multiple other Microsoft Office™ products to become the preferred virtual workplace for information workers, always open on their desktop or tablet’s screens while they visually and collaboratively design, align and execute their own business processes and activities.

 

From within the OVERBLUE™  framework users can leverage in a new, highly productive way, today’s preferred collaboration tools such as Microsoft Outlook™ and  Microsoft SharePoint™.

 

 

FLAWLESS EXECUTION.

 

OVERBLUE™ enables managers and their teams to collaboratively plan, align, assign and monitor their business goals (strategic planning) and the related day-to-day activities as well as assess and monitor individual and team performance.

Embedding risk management in every process

Beyond simple, automatable processes. In 1 click.

WHAT IS C.O.S.O. ?

 

The Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) is a joint initiative of five private sector organizations dedicated to providing thought leadership to executive management and governance entities on critical aspects of organizational governance and enterprise risk management.

The COSO ERM Framework is widely accepted as a standard for implementing enterprise risk management.

 

 

EMBEDDING THE PRINCIPLES AND COMPONENTS OF C.O.S.O. IN EVERY PROCESS. MADE SIMPLE.

 

In ALIGN mode OVERBLUE™ enables business managers, internal auditors, business and IT analysts and process improvement specialists to seamlessly apply the principles and components of the C.O.S.O. framework to every process.

 

OVERBLUE™ integrates business process management with operational risk management and dramatically increases an organization's optimal business performance.

 

 

A BREAKTHROUGH APPROACH TO PROCESS IMPROVEMENT AND RAPID ALIGNMENT USING OPERATIONAL RISK MANAGEMENT 

 

OVERBLUE™ provides a disruptive, propriatery mechanism to improve business processes using risks management and quickly align them with management's  business goals. On a process basis, OVERBLUE™ allows to quickly control and align with business goals the four pillars of any organization:

 

1. ACTIVITIES & WORKFLOWS

2. TECHNOLOGY

3. PEOPLE

4. WORKPLACE

FROM ONLY 10% TO 100%

 

Today’s process improvement methodologies and BPM systems are limited because they are designed to deal with simple, easy to automate processes.  But simple processes account for only about 10% of the any organization’s process portfolio.


Instead the OVERBLUE™ software can be seamlessly used to design, align and execute activities and business processes across 100% of the process spectrum. From the simple and repeatable processes to the highly complex and unstructured ones.

 

Complex processes, such as projects, frequently cut across organizational boundaries, involve negotiations and problem solving, require human judgment and knowledge to determine the next steps and may change structure and participants as process progresses.

 

OVERBLUE™ allows information workers to DOCUMENT their own top-down processes (from simple to very complex), proactively ALIGN them with business goals and to collaboratively EXECUTE them leveraging the familiar Microsoft Office™ and SharePoint™ platform.

 

 

Switching processes from DOCUMENT mode, to ALIGN to EXECUTE in just a mouse-click.

 

OVERBLUE™

supports

the alignment and execution of the

entire process spectrum.

 

From the

simple and repeatable processes

(only 10-20%)

to the complex, collaboration driven ones that can't be

automated ( = 80-90%).

Ready for mobile workers

OVERBLUE™ was designed with both mobility and ease of use in mind.

 

OVERBLUE™ provides users with a very intuitive, slick and modern user interface and the option to choose at any time between Desktop or Tablet mode (touch-ready).

Unique integration with 

Microsoft Office™ and SharePoint™

OVERBLUE™ + VISIO™

 

Microsoft Visio™ is a key element in the OVERBLUE™ technology framework.  

 

OVERBLUE™ plugs into Microsoft Visio™, turning Visio™ into simply the most powerful process alignment and execution software on the market.

 

OVERBLUE™ provides the necessary structure to a Visio™ diagram and dramatically expands Visio™'s native functionalities.

 

With OVERBLUE™ users can capture and effectively organize, analyze and share within a single Visio™ document all relevant information related to a business process diagram (such as business goals, indicators, people, governance structure, activities & roles, risks, control actions, monitoring procedures, documents & deliverables, brainstorming maps, automatic reports and analytics...) . 

 

        

 

 

 

 

 

OVERBLUE™ + OUTLOOK™

 

90% of collaboration still happens via email and within Microsoft Outlook™. 

 

OVERBLUE™ seamlessly integrates with Microsoft Outlook™ so that users can continue to use their preferred collaboration and communication tool in the execution of their business processes.  
 

For example, an OVERBLUE™ unique feature allows users with a mouse click to link directly from Outlook™ any email, task or calendar item related to a process or to easily upload and share emails and attachments from Outlook™ to SharePoint™.
 

Once linked to a process, OVERBLUE™ makes sure that all emails, tasks and calendar items are easily accessible and visually organized within the OVERBLUE™ process execution area (Microsoft Visio™) where, for example, they can be linked to the related activity, deliverable, risk, control action, etc.

No more need to create hundreds of folders and sub-folders within Outlook™ to keep stuff organized.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

OVERBLUE™ + SHAREPOINT™

 

OVERBLUE™ offers full integration with Microsoft SharePoint™ server. It works out of the box, without any installation or configuration on the SharePoint™ server.

 

Once a process is aligned users can easily turn the process into a BEST PRACTICE package and immediately deploy it across the organization taking advantage of OVERBLUE™'s advanced integration capabilities with SharePoint™.

 

For example, with SharePoint™, OVERBLUE™ users can:

 

  • Concurrently update OVERBLUE™ process related data.

  • Work on a process both online and off-line (synchronize).

  • Manage SharePoint™ documents (upload, browse, search, download, email as attachments...) directly from Visio™, Outlook™, Word™, Excel™,... 

  • Add or update SharePoint™ forms and list items

  • Assign SharePoint™ tasks, create team calendar items or discussions.

  • Upload emails or attachments directly from Outlook into SharePoint™

 

All within OVERBLUE™, hence maximizing information worker's productivity while dramatically boosting SharePoint™ user adoption rate.

90% of collaboration happens within

Outlook™.

 

OVERBLUE™

plugs into

Outlook™

to bring

collaboration

within any

business process.
