A business operating system is designed to connect all the parts of an organisation. It provides the building blocks that enables all your stakeholders to work together seamlessly. Connecting teams, suppliers and colleagues together through a system or process that helps you manage and achieve your business strategy.
Proteus’ business operating system can transform the way in which businesses work and the way in which they source and use talent to resource and deliver projects.
Originally designed to meet the specific challenges facing energy companies, Proteus is not just for them. Proteus can change the way you work, manage your business, make you more efficient and improve your margins. Proteus is suitable for any company in any sector.
Below our head of sales, Andy Derrick shares three reasons why Proteus OS works for your organisation.
Simple to use
In life as in business, it’s the simple things which often make the biggest difference. Digital technology can only transform a business if people use it and they will only use it, if it’s simple.
ERP systems have been around for a long time. But they are clunky and complicated. For a cloud-based operating system to change the way you work, it must help you manage your business, become more efficient and save time, as simply and quickly as possible.
Proteus OS has been designed with simplicity in mind. It is highly intuitive, so it’s easy to use. It has everything you need, all in one place, driving consistency and improving productivity.
The OS streamlines business workflows and puts everything your business needs in a database structure with single point data entry and a document numbering system. It facilitates and promotes remote working and team collaboration in a way that can digitally transform your business.
Any operation can be completed in just a few simple clicks.
Most businesses work on a fixed cost model with significant overheads, including people, property and other business support infrastructure. Headcounts go up and down and this leads to fluctuating costs. In order to better manage people and spaces, that lead to costs, smart companies and modern approaches to work have seen the influx of the freelancer talent marketplace. But traditional companies aren’t ready to embrace this change of culture.
Whatever the rationale for not using freelancers, undoubtedly the biggest barrier is still a belief, even in today’s digital and data-driven world, that to do the job you need to be in the office, part of the team, a member of staff. This means that companies cannot easily find the specific skills they need, when they need them. They are constrained not only by geography, when resourcing projects, but also by ability to attract new talent.
Millenials and Gen X workers are looking for the ability to work flexibly and remotely, not just from home, but from anywhere in the world.
But the genie is out of the bottle as a result of COVID-19 and, as we start to emerge from the lock-down, remote working will be the new norm.
By modernising and building businesses on the best technology platforms, businesses can push forward from a position of strength, using cloud-based operating systems to make working flexibly and remotely, simple and successful.
Attract and resource talent
Add a talent “marketplace” to this system, where the best contractors and freelancers can be sourced and matched to the needs of specific projects as and when they are required, and you have a solution to the resource challenge which is a gamechanger in terms of profitability but also a radical shift in the working culture.
Proteus’ Marketplace allows you to connect instantly with rated professionals, giving you the confidence that they have the relevant skills, competences, accreditations and experience you need, when you need them.
It’s rapid and easy through the seamless on-boarding and is much more cost effective than typical recruitment fees. And because it is pay as you go your fixed costs are lower.
For the freelancers, the Marketplace offers the ability to work remotely and flexibly, from wherever and whenever you want. Freelancers can work with multiple companies at the same time, create virtual teams, collaborate with other freelancers and access industry leading software and the Xchange technical forum.
