Effective in Business is a conference that we organised for our clients with a view to the need to exchange business experiences and build a competitive advantage using IT tools. On 10–11 October, the Holiday Inn Hotel in Dąbrowa Górnicza gathered over 100 people from several dozen companies, executives and directors implementing business processes. During the conference, we had the opportunity to listen to lectures on the use of systems such as Asprova APS or XPRIMER and to talk about how to further increase their efficiency.
A source of practical knowledge
Michał Lach, eq system President, welcomed the guests on the first day of the conference. He started by saying that the first edition of the conference is just the beginning and it will evolve into a form of regular, content-related meetings that will allow us to jointly improve our competences. Later, we could listen to lectures with representatives of companies such as Gatta or Bahlsen and take part in a discussion panel led by Dariusz Kacperczyk, eq system Deputy President.
With the expert’s eye
Mr Piotr Kubiak, Gatta Logistics Manager began the content-related part of the conference and talked in his lecture about How to unlock the company’s potential with the help of APS. Presenting the role of production planning and scheduling, he focused on the benefits that the company gained thanks to the Asprova APS system.
Mr Marek Markuc, Bahlsen IT Manager, spoke next. He gave the speech on How to use not only the hands of employees, but also their heads. He explained how he digitised Bahlsen together with his employees. In addition, he strongly emphasised the role of the employee in the company, saying that it was important for the employees to know their goals and to have access to the results of their work before starting it.
The conference gave us the opportunity to deliver our own lectures with the participation of Jacek Czeremcha, eq system technology Deputy Board President and Krzysztof Orlicz, eq system technology Board Member. The lecture entitled The premiere of XPRIMER 4.0; eq system development plans discussed the improvements that we had introduced and would continue to introduce in our solutions. XPRIMER is a modern communication platform that allows you to manage all business processes in a company, which is why every day we make sure to make it effective, functional and reliable.
At the end of this part of the conference, Dariusz Kacperczyk, Deputy Board President, debated with panellists about the concerns that prevented investing in the computerisation of business processes. We ended the first day of the Effective in Business Conference with a banquet which provided us with the opportunity for networking and listening to live music.
Efficiency in every respect
On the second day, the guests could hear three lectures. Mr Łukasz Dubin, Raben Logistics Project Manager, talked about innovation and investment in technological development. He paid special attention to the automation and digitisation of distribution processes: he emphasised the importance of IT tools in everyday work. Zasław – Abdelmottaleb Doulan Board President explained how to become the number 3 company in Poland within 3–5 years using the R theory to the fourth power, i.e. Reliable Digital Data Driven Decisions. Furthermore, Mr Michał Dydak, Kuehne + Nagel Senior IT Specialist, gave the lecture Modern IT with a human face, raised key issues related to building a competitive advantage on the market, challenges faced by people in the IT industry and the impact of digitisation on enterprises, among other things.
The second day could not take place without a discussion panel: we would not be ourselves if we did not ask questions about our industry. Because as we know, better to ask the way than to go astray. The panel entitled Ability of adaptation, flexibility and agility was led by our HR Manager Łukasz Zabrowski.
This is just the beginning
The Effective in Business Conference is over but we already know that it is only the beginning for us. It is the start of a joint exchange of experiences, insights and discussions on business as well as the introduction of innovative improvements. And it is not only about our clients’ companies but also about ourselves. We want to share our experience with our clients but also listen to them and, thus, gain knowledge about how we can help them with our solutions: how to tailor our IT solutions to their business, needs and capabilities. This is a priority for us.
