Blue Skies Corporate Services

Catalyst is a service that helps Blue Skies' clients get the best from their external business partners. Catalyst provides a comprehensive capability and engagement management system that records engagements against the external business partners undertaking the work including those experts actually undertaking the work for a particular engagement.

The requirements for Blue Skies’ Catalyst Capabilities/Relationship Manager application; to deliver a web based system to quickly link an organisations internal and external R&D projects to internal and external R&D capabilities, partners or suppliers. In addition the system would be required to:

  • Assess external partner capabilities when applied to specific R&D engagements
  • Search and make assessments based on feedback on their capabilities when applied to specific R&D engagements
  • Track progress and assess R&D engagements as they are completed
  • Publish basic details of R&D contracts (managed by the Contract Manager system) linked to the partner or supplier

To meet the requirements specified, we developed a system featuring friendly, easy to navigate ‘User and Administrator Interfaces’ where a user can ‘search and filter’ engagements, partners and capabilities and report on the relationships derived from engagements.

‘Administration and maintenance tools’ allow the creation of new engagements, partners, capabilities personnel records etc. Additional administration tasks provided for include; status updates and custom reminders, file upload and a domain/sub-domain security model to control ‘Chinese Wall’ requirements between business units and provide for special treatment of highly confidential engagements.

A ‘Results Grid’ provide a snapshot of key information and gives ‘drill down’ access to innovation Engagements, Parties, Personnel or Capabilities details within internal and external businesses including their teams and connected people.

A "Reports" control panel provide the tools to select and filter across engagement, capability, value, success, status, party, personnel and location. Reports can be display and output to HTML, Excel or PDF formats.

While developed for R&D engagements, the system is highly suited to provide instant access to capabilities, experts and resources available but often hard to locate within any large organisation.
