Innovation as part of our DNA
Part of our commitment to innovation is reflected in the completion of the project “Cloud system for the intelligent management of tramping services”, with the financial support of CDTI and the European Union through the smart growth operational programme.
The aim of the project has been to develop a system with business intelligence capable of efficiently managing all the processes related to tramping operations.
An intelligent process control system that, in the event of an incorrect operation, detects it and acts accordingly, proposing a solution and implementing it in possible cases and notifying the variation and stopping communication in the most complex cases.
Development of an evolutionary system that incorporates intelligence and business rules for the automatic deployment of processes by analysing the operations carried out to date for each client.
Total traceability of all services and associated processes, knowing their status at all times.
Maximum isolation of the production environment of this new project to provide it with scalability and independence. This proposal is a key requirement for the growth and internationalisation of the project as it will allow deployment and growth according to the needs of use.
