We analyze business processes in production and administration, and develop specifications for their improvement. The implementation of these specifications using workflow management solutions can achieve significant long-term cost savings.
Consulting means for us that we are also fully responsible for the implementation of the improvement.
WORKFLOWS FOR PEOPLE
If tens or hundreds of colleagues work together in a company, a lot of time is spent on coordination of staff, teams, customers and suppliers. Workflow Management replaces inefficient manual process coordination (e-mail, meetings, Excel, applications etc.) with unified labor-saving workflows: individual, flexible, and adaptable if and when paradigms change.
In almost every business process in addition to human tasks, there are steps which must be done in or by systems and applications; these can be complex technical operations, financial statements, imports and exports, etc.
These systems can be integrated using definable central interfaces in order to avoid breaks in the work.
Assignments for employees of a company must be planned or at least distributed efficiently to ensure timely deliveries at all times. The graphical scheduling allows this manually or automatically with the help of workflows.
Here, assignments of jobs to people, workplaces or machines will be performed online by dragging and dropping.
When shifts and services must be planned for staff in a company, a variety of parameters such as availability, qualifications, and preferences is required when statutory and contract regulations have to be adhered to.
Only efficient scheduling leads to the optimal utilization, which helps cut costs, complying with regulations and keeping employees motivated at the same time.
To meet the needs of our customers for modern, dynamic, adaptable and flexible Web-based software, we developed a range of new technologies which did not previously exist.
We can also make these frameworks, platforms, plug-ins and tools available to other software companies and technology partners to integrate them into their own solutions.
The software CEITON 7.5 with its two main components Workflow and Scheduling.
CEITON is the leading software product for planning, controlling and billing of business processes.
The goal of the system is to organize the flow of information between people, companies and systems so speed, transparency, controllability, efficiency and quality are achieved.
The solution is so flexible that it is currently used out-of-the-box by companies with just ten employees, yet also highly customized by multinational corporations.
Unrestricted modeling allows the platform to be implemented in the most diverse production and service processes: from TV and post production, through engineering and IT, to banking and pharmaceutical workflows through auditing and quality management.
Last but not least, patented technologies enable the use of the entire system in a regular web-browser: making it user-friendly and accessible - anywhere, at any time.
“Scheduling is always embedded in a process and this can only be modeled meaningfully without media discontinuity by a Workflow System. All resources can participate in the process in real time, independently of location.”
Jürgen Schuldmaier, Red Bull Media House
“The CEITON system has enabled us to build cross-department workflows that support our business processes and reinforce our leading position in the global content business.”

“CEITON’s software supported us so well that, after a year, we also successfully rolled out the solution at our sister company TaurusMedia Licence Service.”
Stefanie Löster, TaurusMedia Digital
“Without the CEITON system it would not have been possible to reach our current production level of thousands of titles per year. To our knowledge no other tool offers the level of control and customization of that available from CEITON.”
Paul Leitner, SONY DCE (DADC)
“The openness to integration and configuration contributed to our decision for CEITON. We can modify the platform according to our requirements and we have, in CEITON, a competent partner.”
Andreas Gall, Red Bull Media House
