SmartDesigner™ is a 100% web-based solution that provides SmartSolve® users the ability to create new applications or redesign Pilgrim’s existing ‘Best Practices’ out-of-the-box forms to help customers meet their industry requirements, diverse products demands, and changing organizational needs. Pilgrim’s SmartDesigner also allows SmartSolve functional administrators to incorporate other business processes to be compliant and integrated with Pilgrim’s Enterprise Compliance & Quality solution. From simple property changes, to creating dynamic pages, managing translations and drag-and-drop form controls, SmartDesigner puts the power of “flexibility” into the hands of each functional administrator.
SmartDesigner’s out-of-the-box tools allow users to:
- Quickly configure applications and begin streamlining processes
- Have complete control over form design, including drag-and-drop layout and interaction controls
- Utilize existing security or create new security as processes require
- Represent forms in multiple languages
- Have complete control over the flexibility of forms
Configuring New Applications
With complete flexibility over new forms and business rules, functional administrators can easily add any type of process for identifying (collecting), tracking, managing and trending their commitment, incident or event data. SmartDesigner allows users to create new applications and leverage SmartSolve’s ‘Best Practice’ built-in workflow engine, through the Flow Designer, to ensure that processes will occur repeatedly with reviews, approvals, timelines, escalations and security. Business rules can be easily applied to form control properties and data objects, along with a library of functions with a visual expression builder for advanced process control. Unlimited new event tracking applications can be made accessible, such as:
- Safety incidents
- Environmental incidents
- Commitment tracking
- Legal-related issues
With SmartDesigner, each configuration change is version-controlled and secured. Preview capabilities allow the designer to view a WYSIWYG representation of the form prior to publishing to the user community. SmartDesigner provides preview capabilities and a comprehensive archive of the history and version of each form. Exporting/importing capabilities support any requirements for external Version Control, and provide the ability to move forms and applications between environments or share across organizational divisions.
Accessibility and Productivity
A single, centralized platform enables global access to an unlimited number of applications designed for use within the organization. The data defined in the forms are immediately available for ad hoc queries and reporting, allowing users to quickly find and access information across your organization. By redesigning existing forms or adding new processes with familiar interfaces specific to your users, the learning curve in new software implementations decreases and multiple login requirements with a single login are minimized.
Reduce Total Cost of Ownership
SmartDesigner helps reduce the cost of ownership by expanding your existing SmartSolve investment through the addition of new quality and compliance business processes across your organization. This eliminates silos of information and disparate systems. SmartDesigner reduces a company’s dependency on external solution tailoring and on-going enhancement maintenance costs.
The notion of 'best practices' does not commit users or companies to one inflexible, unchanging quality and compliance work process. Instead, Pilgrim’s Out-of-the-Box Best Practices, along with SmartDesigner’s powerful flexibility, provides the ultimate control of your quality and compliance solution where “One Application Fits All.”
