Our vision of Digital Transformation as VIGATEC

Every company is experiencing the Digital Transformation, regardless of their area of service, which means an important advance in how things are done, not only at industrial level but in everyday life, as a society and as an improvement in the quality of the user’s experience.

Each company has different objectives to pursue when carrying out the digital transformation, according to Gartner analysis firm in its report “It Market Clocks for 2016: Digital Transformation Demands Rapid IT Modernization” 66% of companies that apply the Digital Transformation expect to generate more revenue from their operations, 48% expect that more businesses will arrive through their digital channels. According to the study, other reasons for its implementation are: 40% are committed to empowering employees with digital tools, and 39% aim to reduce costs.

Many IT experts agree that adaptation is necessary, regardless of the objectives, as Gartner argues, companies that don’t undergo a Digital Transformation, will see their progress affected. In addition, consideration must be given to the fact that learning and adapting run at a much slower pace with respect to the evolution of new technologies.

At Vigatec we face several challenges: to know who the users of the future are going to be in detail, what the buyers’ behavior will be like, how they want to be served, all in order to be able to develop solutions that meet their expectations. It has to do with facing changes in people’s mentality, our age generation, and on how to adopt this speed since the speed of the transformation is a challenge per se.

Another no-lesser challenge, is the correct incursion of start-ups, which, with very little working capital, can overcome other businesses only by using digital platforms and having the advantage that they are managed by young people, who know what their generation wants, who move at a faster rate than traditional companies, and can manage to capitalize this synergy in a better way. All this is a very interesting challenge and in Vigatec we have transformed it into an opportunity, we understand that the Digital Transformation has nothing to do with capital, nor investment, but rather it’s a matter of adoption, of understanding what you want to do and how solutions are designed to meet expectations, using an innovation that incorporates the most up-to-date technologies, and giving value to information by basing ourselves on what customers need.

Finally, Digital Transformation starts from within the companies themselves, this is one of the biggest challenges, since we must analyze how much we’ve adopted the digital culture, how we’ve reinvented the work processes, and how we’ve incentivized technological creativity.

Electronic security and assistance solutions for companies

Technology has ceased to be a luxury and has become a fundamental element in the personal and business sphere. In such an active and globalized world, companies must be fast and efficient with all their resources, the use of technological tools solves problems and eliminates organizational barriers through innovative systems that adapt to each person’s needs.

In this case, the use of technology to comply with regulation 1140/27, which governs the attendance control of employees in Chile, and in which digital modernization requirements have been established to guarantee a precise marking of working hours. Thanks to the electronic security and assistance systems, the information that previously took days or weeks to collect, is now acquirable in real time, facilitating the work of the Human Resources area.

At Vigatec, we advise companies based on their business’s characteristics, our offer stands out because we have solutions that meet the aforementioned law’s requirements, and include both the equipment and software that allows for reports to be sent to each employee through an email, and to the staff administration. In addition, these electronic systems and assistance, are robust equipment of great durability, in fact, many of the renovations we work on, have to do more with aesthetics, since some equipment has worked correctly even after more than 10 years of use.

Regarding the innovation of biometric recognition systems, I highlight the fact that the teams can capture the finest details with 50 comparative fingerprint points, allowing for a very high recognition. This surpasses the Bioscript technology, which took a picture of the trace and in case of any injury, couldn’t recognize it. Also, it should be noted that 1% of the population has fingerprint problems, and for these cases, we recommend the use of the keyboard incorporated in the equipment.

These electronic security and assistance solutions are exposed in the Vigatec Experience Center, visitors can interact with the software and equipment, so they can check its functionality personally.
