We have been writing Enterprise Software at Abivin for almost 2 years. We love to execute fast to get the initial data and then “train a model” so that the model becomes a policy or a process. Next time, everyone can just repeat the process when a similar case is encountered.
For product development, the most exciting idea we come up with is a model that fits all of existing Enterprise Software Systems. We name it Model MXYZ. It can easily be explained as follows.
Model MXYZ, as you may guess, consists of 4 software components M, X, Y, Z. M is the software component for Managers; X, Z are software components for Employees or DeviceZ within the organization - under M's management; Y refers to Buyers/Customers who is external to the organization.
To give you more clarification, M can be a manager or a group of managers who supervise activities of X's - Employees. Each employee carries a mobile device and reports for M. X's frequently interacts with Y's - Customers who may also possess mobile devices to communicate back to X's (if Y does, Y is just like an Uber customer; if not this is similar to our current vRoute system).
Z may be another class of employees (such as back office personnels) or may just be a device owned by the same organization with M and X. Z interacts with X internally (such as Payroll in Accounting Software) and with Y externally (such as Invoice in Accounting Software).
We give the following examples that Model MXYZ applies for existing systems:
Uber is MXY
Uber’s managers are M's, Uber’s drivers are X's, Uber’s customers are Y's.
Abivin vRoute is MX
Our distributor customers are M's, distributor’s deliverers are X's.
Abivin vApp is MXYZ
Abivin vApp is all-in-one system that fits for every retail businesses. We provide a cloud-based and mobile-enabled management system for your organization, project tasks, customers and products.
Aside of the management features in Abivin vApp, we implement advanced Optimization and Machine Learning algorithms (hint: this is I am good at). We strive to ease the work of the Managers and Employees by automating repetitive tasks. From M to X, there is always an algorithm implemented by our experts in Algorithms & Data Science team. We reduce existing resources of enterprise customers and always look for some way to improve at least 25% efficiency (i.e. generate 25–40% income or save at least 25% costs c.f. the same period).
Internally, we use Abivin vApp ourselves. The system is currently used by our Sales and Marketing team to keep generating valuable data, used by our HR, Operations & Accounting departments to keep track of potential candidates and analyze people's potential, making sure that the internal services provided for everyone is run smoothly. The Product team is using the task management ganttchart to make sure the quality of our software is taken care precisely.
