The Chills backend connecting investments and returns

New and improved revenue streams having a long-term impact on the company’s performance created by data integration and business automation on an easy to use backend.

 

Backend functionality and performance

Fast backend adoption through user friendliness and the visualisation of application integrations creates a solid foundation for Business - IT collaboration.

The IT department has full control of all integrations on one backend, quickly accessible and easy to adjust. The business uses the same backend where each VIA™ shows the business parameters and data processing sequence.

 

Dynamic price model

The price model fits any customer due to its flexibility. All customers start at the entry cost level. The backend’s speed to create data flow is decisive factor for the low development costs and simultaneously reducing the hard code integration costs

Adapters (VIA’s) create data flows related to products or services. A high data flow indicates a high number of products and services delivered, generating revenue and the flow value cost will increase equally.

If business slows down, your flow value costs will reduce equally. For example, a seasonal business cycle, or during the holidays when business is slow. The flow value cost will be reduced as well.

We limit cost fluctuations for customers to predict integration costs more accurately. Gradually increasing the backend use results in a controlled flow value cost component. This cost structure makes our platform accessible for most customers.

30% to 60% integration cost reduction variation is depending on many factors; your previous hard coding contracts, the complexity of the hard coding process, skilled employee’s etc.

Additional Chills benefits

  • The integration budget delivering business value

  • Simplified integrations free up management time

  • Data flow delivering new insights enabling the right strategic decisions

  • Fast implementation of decisions creating the agile organisation

  • “Time to insight” reduction due to automated data processing

Cost components

1. Backend license

The backend license includes an unlimited number of administrators and users, paid per quarter. User registration and access permissions is the customers responsibility.

2. Adapter building

The customer builds Adapters necessary to integrate applications. Dedicated partners, chosen by the customer, can obtain backend access building Adapters according to business specifications.

Depending on the complexity, experience and no. of Adapters, the total building including testing and release is expected to reduce your current integration time frame with 67% and involves only two representatives; business and IT.

3. Flow value

Each Adapter delivers a valuable flow of data or automated task. The reuse of data eliminates mistakes and increases your product/service quality. Task automation increases your organisations efficiency.

Your organisation becomes more efficient reducing the time employees spent on repetitive tasks. Chills performs these tasks error free, provided the Adapter is built properly, representing a high value for your organisation.

Self-regulating cost structure

This cost structure reflects your organisational performance and results in thought-through Adapter building, focussing on business value from data flows.

Getting started

Proof of Concept (PoC) phase

Free backend testing for two months allowing the customer to verify functionality and education material.

During these two months the customer reassures that; service, simplicity and functionality are as promised. Foundation course material is available on the Chills Portal. This education material enables the customer to build Adapters and create data flow independently from Dynamic Integrations. Partnership engagement with a backend consultancy firm is optional.

The customer proceeds to the collaboration phase by signing the Backend as a Service (BaaS) Agreement.

Collaboration phase

The Backend as a Service (BaaS) agreement is signed between the customer, an optional partner and Dynamic Integrations.

By signing this agreement, at any time during this PoC phase, the customer obtains access to the Practitioner material explaining the full backend potential. Enterprise data strategy & Data governance templates, exclusive access to seminars and webinars sharing the latest backend developments will be part of this collaboration. 

A trusted partner can operate the backend supporting the customer with data strategy, business process visualisation, transformation and other services. The agreement has a three-month notice period for termination.

 

Vision & Roadmap

Software is an invitation to transformation, not a threshold.

Ecosystem

Dynamic Integrations builds an ecosystem with partners and customers, sharing insights how to use the backend, delivering value for all members.

Chills development

Chills will continuously develop new functionality and data flow visualisation. The main source for improvement are our ecosystem members and the implementation of new technologies.

Marketplace

The Chills backend includes a marketplace with ready to use adapters, functionality, services and tools creating an efficient start of Chills. 

 

Differentiation

Short-term IT integration savings are substantial using the low-code Chills backend. Increase your focus on one of the market disciplines.
