Exformatics A/S is a Danish IT company established in 2000. We deliver IT-systems for digitization, structure and optimize all forms of work processes, knowledge sharing and information management. Our solution combines the very best from ECM, social software and process management (BPM). This provides a unique information overview and a platform to help increase the efficiency of employees and supports the cooperation between departments and even organizations. Among other things, the solution enables companies to organize and access activities and information, and digitizes business processes. Our main goal is to provide IT-systems which are easy to use and increase knowledge sharing and collaboration, and thereby contribute to a higher level of productivity and job satisfaction.
In 2011, Exformatics initiated the industrial PhD project of Tijs Slaats in collaboration with the IT University Of Copenhagen (ITU). The aim was to further develop and mature the DCR (Dynamic Condition Response) technology, a theoretical flexible workflow technology invented by Hildebrandt and his former PhD student Rao R. Mukkamala at ITU. During the 3 years of his PhD project, Tijs Slaats and his supervisors, Hildebrandt and Marquard, successfully refined and matured the technology and evaluated its usefulness in practice. The collaboration has continued after the end of the PhD project jointly with Søren Debois at ITU, leading to the current Exformatics DCRGraphs.net system, which can effectively support knowledge workers and be adapted when regulations and workflows change.
The key insight of the DCR system is NOT to digitalise the process flows, which inevitably gets too rigid for knowledge workers. Instead, DCR digitalizes the constraints workers must obey, and support the sharing and identification of workflows and adaptation of constraints through collaborative simulation.
The result is a dynamic and flexible process- and knowledge sharing system that can be easily adapted to the individual organization’s workflow and changing needs, which can revolutionize process thinking on an international scale.
In December 2016, Exformatics received international recognition for their work with Dreyers Fond (Dreyers Foundation) when they were nominated for the BPM Award (Business Process Management). Exformatics has helped Dreyers Foundations go from an analogue paper-based workflow to a digital, paperless workflow using the DCR-system. The result was not only a more efficient distribution and management of funds, but also reduced administrative work by 30 per cent.
