INSPIRED BY INNOVATION

Innovation is the key to efficiency for many processes. The only way for continuous improvement is to be open to the new possibilities that become available every day.

When companies really want to excel and perform better than their competitors, next to a solid foundation based on business acumen, people coaching and quality control, having an open mind for adapting to new and innovative developments in the market is fundamental.

My entire career I have worked with companies that really thrive on innovation. From using GSM data exchange for tracking and tracing in the early nineties with just a few GSM antennas scattered over Europe to the introduction of electronic ticketing in the airline industry. From the start of using e-mail to send PDF invoices to customers to the development of fully automated electronic invoice exchange hubs.

Apart from giving a leading edge over competitors, embedding the believe that the future happens today also gives energy to everyone working in such an organisation.

In my current activities, I help companies to make the transition to lean and flexible processes, open for a continuous adaptation to whatever the fast changing world is throwing at them.

SMART PROCESSES MATTER

In the current, fast changing world you cannot cast your processes in concrete anymore. Automating repetitive work is not enough. Processes must be smart so they adapt to different conditions, are easy to control and give clear insight in their status.
E-INVOICING AND INVOICE PROCESSING

For more than 14 years I have been involved in different projects around e-invoicing and invoice processing. Business to Customer, Business to Business and Business to Government. I have helped Businesses in different sectors with choosing and implementing e-invoice solutions and optimizing their invoice handling processes to get maximum result from their transition. This includes workflow management, order matching, automated validation, data enrichment and SEPA payments.

PROCESS OPTIMIZATION

Lots of businesses are stuck in their existing way of working. As the world around us is in continuous change, their once perfectly fitting methods cannot cope anymore with current demands. Process optimization is often seen as months of investigation, a nice report and then months of implementation, very expensive and without guaranteed success.

Often however, by looking at processes at a different angle, it is possible to work incremental. Just changing a few key elements can already lead to measurably improved results in a short time. Working incremental gives also the opportunity to tweak where necessary.

With more than 30 years of experience working in very different industries, I have learned to recognize process patterns quickly and what small steps can lead to real improvement.

AGILE THINKING

Agile is a bit of a buzzword nowadays. However, in situations where time and resources are limited and where the environment changes dynamically, it is the only sensible way of working.

The word Agile stands for a method of development or implementation, but, more important, it stands for a method of thinking. A flexible way of looking at a process, quickly overseeing the landscape and finding those key elements that, with small, incremental changes, will have a big impact on the quality of the results.

Think big, start small, learn while doing and stay flexible.

RESULTS DRIVEN

No process is run for the sake of the process itself. In the end, it is the result of the process that matters. Defining the result from the different perspectives, however, demands at least some insight in the specialisms of the stakeholders of the process. Having a very diverse skill set helps enormously.
