Why OPTSM?

Across the OPTSM team there is deep expertise in the application of emerging technologies to stimulate immediate benefit.

Robotic Process Automation, No / low-code development, Artificial Intelligence and advanced analytics – tools that all work with an organisation’s existing platforms – avoiding the need for costly, time consuming and risky IT change.

These smart technologies can be applied in days or weeks to create capacity, deliver efficiencies and improve customer experience. We call upon our years of experience to provide pragmatic advice, recommend the appropriate tools / technology and deliver optimal solutions.

Our expertise lies in business processes and business improvement – but we’re also entrepreneurs.

As Process Advisors, our role is to help clients to optimise their activities for increased value. This is reflected in our methodologies and the delivery models we provide through our technology partners.

Our goal is to align spend to immediate benefit wherever possible.

We have built the partnerships and relationships we have with technology providers carefully to deliver flexibility, agility and pragmatism.

This allows us deliver programmes of improvement using a mix of technologies and delivery models according to clients’ changing needs.

Better value from business processes often comes through the application of technology – but the principle of Working Smarter involves an understanding of strategy, engagement of people and alignment of processes to optimal outputs.

Enabling digital services and harnessing the power of emerging technologies is about action, understanding customers, creating a deep knowledge of users / user journeys and building a culture of continuous improvement.

Technology is only the enabler.
