RapidValue was able to create a mobile experience that was holistic, conclusive, and included everything Brocade needed to incorporate through this single mobile app. The end results were very effective. Due to the need for multiple systems, integration was complex. There were multiple integrations that RapidValue provided. One of the major needs was finding a way to manage workday integration and HR tasks. This was paired with other important departmental tasks such as Expense Management, and Approvals (PO and PR approvals). Brocade also needed to integrate with Salesforce to expedite their CRM, contacts, and lead opportunities. Salesforce wasn’t the only integration required, however. They also utilized another application, called Taleo, that needed to be integrated to help HR with the job posting process.
Lastly, the RapidValue team was able to set up Microsoft Calendar, Business Suite, and an image recognition program to make sure everything the Brocade team needed to accomplish could be managed in one central place. In order to make sure everything within the mobile app worked flawlessly, RapidValue approached this project with a four-phase approach. Each phase took about 4-6 weeks to complete, allowing enough time to get to know the exact needs of Brocade and work with their team to roll-out development in the most effective and time-conscious manner possible.
RapidValue helped Brocade implement all of these systems within a single app. However, the most valuable aspect of this was the addition of a single sign-on solution. This feature helped to increase their usability and make it a seamless integration into the new app. RapidValue was also able to help create a new security policy which added additional security and peace of mind, once everything was up and running.
If Brocade went the normal custom application route, it could have easily taken 12-16 months to design, develop, and integrate with the Oracle Suite. Companies such as Brocade who utilize Oracle out-of-the-box, but don’t have the ability to customize it, typically need to work with an outside provider to help with flawless integration. Given the competitive nature of their verticals, these companies usually must work around certain time restraints in order to get to market before their competitors. RapidValue understands these needs and takes them seriously, as evidenced by their ability to help Brocade have a viable solution in only four months. Using their in-depth knowledge of how these functions work, they were cognizant of go-to-market strategies and the need for cutting-edge security and technological solutions. The success of RapidValue’s work with Brocade stems from RapidValue’s implementation of their eQuipMe™ Solution Suite. With this solution, Brocade has been able to decrease approval time from 1-5 days to just 2-4 hours. Brocade also saw a significant improvement in compliance, thanks to the eQuipMe™ solution.
