The SNAP I2M DataCube™ not only enables analysts and managers to identify inefficiencies within their current data-driven business processes, it provides the systematic tools to address those inefficiencies and implement re-engineered processes.

Template Software has developed a world-class reputation for helping their clients leverage best-in-class software technology to provide solutions focused on automating and improving data-driven business processes. With their latest commercial web-based software release, SNAP® I2M, Template has packaged their approach of data-driven process improvement into a powerful tool that can be deployed in a broad range of industries. SNAP I2M's patent-pending DataCube™ provides a unique capability to integrate diverse data and existing systems into a single data model that can be intelligently reasoned upon utilizing a combination of manual and rule-based analytical functions.
Template's clients are leveraging the power of SNAP I2M in a number of innovative ways, some of which were not predicted prior to implementation. For example, with the ability to view and analyze their enterprise data within SNAP I2M's DataCube™ display, a manufacturing client realized that their current processes for bill-of-materials management were redundant and weighed down with manually intensive tasks. These existing processes that touched six systems and required input from multiple functional departments were replaced with one adaptable, automated process using SNAP I2M. The new lean process, enabled by SNAP I2M, reduced the time-period for specific product planning tasks by as much as a factor of six. Along with increased efficiencies, SNAP I2M improved the integrity and quality of the organization's output by employing a systematic approach that reduced human error and eliminated communication bottlenecks.
Template's CEO, Kelly Brown, recently discussed the concept of data-driven process improvement at an industry roundtable, commenting, "The SNAP I2M DataCube™ not only enables analysts and managers to identify inefficiencies within their current data-driven business processes, it provides the systematic tools to address those inefficiencies and implement re-engineered processes."
A SNAP I2M implementation at a global manufacturer recently led to the reduction of complex, labor intensive processes by optimizing the creation of planning schedules for every part and major assembly within their global product portfolio. Processes such as data acquisition, data merging, and data organization, which once required up to 40% of their skilled labor, have now been replaced by one automated adaptable process. As a result, these critical labor resources can now focus on the execution of their primary tasks, rather than on the time and labor intensive processes previously involved with managing their data.
Built with a highly flexible and portable COTS platform that can dynamically adapt to a wide variety of domains, SNAP I2M offers exceptional value to organizations looking to optimize and integrate their data-driven processes. Domain-neutral and highly configurable, SNAP I2M and Template's supporting customer services help organizations save time, money, and resources through improved processes that increase automation, consistency, and quality.
